I'm not feeling this series much although it has its good points

Most "meh" episode so far. What a contrived setup to get Jigen into the pyramid and then just tacked together Indy-chlichés with "oh how genious resolves" which basically break down to solve any puzzle by shooting at something. No tension whatsoever and not even funny enough to make it count as a parody. So they wasted the first meeting of Jigen and Lupin on a filler episode.

nznznz dislikes it this must be a great episode I am going to see it right away.

Unfortunately it really felt like the animation took some short cuts this round (though honestly the first ep still is the episode that has had the best animation so far and the episodes after have had they're own shortcomings animation-wise) but there were still come great still moments and background art. :)

Yeah I feel the same way too. Some of the animations felt stilted and it was hard to make out what was happening on screen.

Still, it's one of the better episodes thus far IMO. Lupin's and Jigen's first meeting reminded me somewhat of First Contact, so that's great. Wonder how they'll set it up with Goemon. And we finally get to see Fujiko being the backstabber that she is.

Didn't really like this episode that much, to be honest. The directing of the scenes felt...sporadic and half the time I didn't know what was going on.

I haven't watched the original Lupin, so just now I noticed that him and that another guy are two different people .__.

This was a good ep, I love ancient Egypt. But despite what that idiot said, they should have shown more art and statues before it all cracked up D:

And the ending is giving me shivers, I like it.

Oh Fujiko, there's no need to degrade yourself like that even if it wasn't intended.
Seriously though, I think there is more to it than one would think. Concealing one's true nature behind a flair of mysteriousness, that's what she does, probably to fill the emptiness in her heart, so to speak.

Jigen's meeting with Lupin this episode seems to be of great significance as it fuels his fire again which seems to have been on the back-burner previously, emphasized by his willingness to give away his gun, an object with a lot of meaning for him.

So that's how Lupin and Jigen first met...not surprising really. Episode had an Indiana Jones kinda vibe going on.

Why was Jigen in Egypt in the first place?

Good episode. It was awesome to see the first meet between Lupin and Jingen.

Second most enjoyable so far, wonder if anything major will happen in the 13 episodes or it will stay fairly static.

Fujiko is savage. In the 2015 one, she always gave trouble to Lupin but never something that she knew Lupin couldn't get himself out of.

Fujiko legit has tried to kill Lupin twice now. I never thought I'd find another character quite like Revy.

I adored everything about this episode. I love how this series still maintains its silliness while still being more serious than the usual Lupin stuff.
