No worries! I completely understand I am slow to reply at times so it is no big deal.

Break is definitely my favorite!

I didn't know usernames can be changed on AP too and Lupin III part V is still entertaining after 17 episodes and was more than a show about thievery or burglary, it is anti-heroic after all. Not all thieves are evil and compared to the old Red, Green and Pink Jacket Lupin shows, the animation here is on a whole new level. The CGI is so pretty that I want to draw this one scene with a windmill in sub-Saharan Africa surrounded bunch of pretty stars and this another scene shown somewhere that looks like France or Italy where people travel via canals.

Aside from the CGI, I think that Lupin's little hacker friend Ami is a child prodigy rather than some generic teenage anime character or bishoujo (most children get on my nerves). Lupin is too old for Ami (since Lupin looks to be around my age), but Ami wants to compete with Fujiko and be his wife someday, a computer geek of a future wife (the nerdy boy's fantasy). xD

I'll watch the last 7 episodes for further pretty CGI scenes. Better CGI and overall production than anything else made by TMS so far like Detective Conan (sadly this is Megumi's only role besides Pokemon and EVA spin-offs or movies).

I re-watched Logan and then noticed that it's based on the Old Man Logan series where Wolverine is really old and less immortal living in a post-apocalyptic world. The movie kind of reminds me of Gran Torino where an old man's struggles in life are present. The more struggles a character has the better.

Hi Megane! so how are you doing? I'm more than halfway done with the 2018 Lupin series. I also read about Monkey Punch's death and the cause is pneumonia.

Oh yes! and the Endgame movie is awesome.

Just the usual maintenance labor, of cars that is, but I hope to get a new job before I reach my mid 30s, maybe become a potter/art dealer (I need to expand my pottery training) or CEO someday.

Lupin III isn't on everyone's top 5 seinen manga, but since you watched Cowboy Bebop, then you already know that it shares one or more of characteristics from Lupin III. Notice the striking resemblence between Goemon and Vicious? and if you looked at Spikes European-style shoes a lot then you know Spike was somewhat modeled after Lupin, but Space Dandy has more of Lupin's lecherous, goofy personality. Oh yeah! because The Castle of Cagliostro is based on the Green Jacket Lupin anime, it's non-canon. Only the Red Jacket Lupin show and movies are canon, but nonetheless, I still enjoy the standalone Part V series with more detailed art than everyday anime. 

While I haven't seen any other new anime yet, I'm excited about the Vinland Saga anime the lady Kanon mentioned to me and I want it to be a proper adaptation.

Hi Megane! I got tied up because of monotonous labor, but I'm fine. I'm also hesitant to show you that recent drawing of Mylene, because it looks kinda lewd and stuff. I made it for future business on DeviantArt and to appeal to a fanservice loving audience. But I'll come up with more interesting drawings this spring.

Lupin III part V has so many aesthetically scenes compared to the really old shows, from the mid 70s to the 80s Pink Jacket series. I forgot the name of the studio behind the making of part V, but they did a better job at making a more aesthetically pleasing CG adaptation of the Lupin series than TMS. I'll watch the other half and capture more of those colorful scenes. I also love Miyuki Sawashiro inducing sex appeal via voice acting as Fujiko Mine (the voice of a total babe).

I'm disappointed at TMS for not remastering an underrated 90s gem called Virtua Fighter, the character designs are right there with other 1995 anime, better than battle shounen too so there's fighting without the plot armor attached to it.

P.S nice to see that you had a vacation, I need one too
