The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 95: Lupin III: The First with Tricia


Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Happy 2021! I’m starting the first episode of this brand new year with something a little different. This time, we’re watching a new anime based off a classic, well-loved franchise: 
Lupin III: The First! Lupin & the gang’s first ever CG animated film! And of course, I recruited friend & fellow Lupin fan Tricia to chat about it, and all things Lupin. Join us as we give our immediate thoughts after watching it and give a rundown on what we liked and didn’t like about this fresh new Lupin anime & how it stacks up to 50 years of Lupin III. (The first part of the episode is relatively spoiler-free, with spoiler-filled talk starting at around the 46:57 mark and continuing on for pretty much the rest of the episode, for those who don’t want to be spoiled!) Also in this episode: Nazis suck, which movie director should Lupin fight, and is Zenigata a himbo?? Tune in and find out!

Also - if you’re listening to this in a timely manner, you have until JAN 22, 2021 to enter my giveaway with Gkids to win your own copy of the movie on bluray here!! So hurry if you haven’t already!

This month on the podcast!


New Year, New Lupin?? For the 1st episode of the new year, let’s do something fun: Old Fans watch NEW Lupin! That’s right, the lovely folks at Gkids sent me a copy of the brand new CG animated Lupin III: The First movie, and Tricia will be returning to watch the dubbed version with me and to share our thoughts about it. As fans of the franchise, how do we think it stands up to 50 Years of previous Lupin III content? We can’t wait to find out!

And to make this episode even more special, Gkids has generously offered to give one of you lucky listeners a copy of the movie, too! Check out the giveaway link here for all the details!
