Well, that became strangely mythical. It feels kinda out-of-place for this show.

So, this series is supposed to involve Lupin and Sherlock Holmes, right? Can we get back to that, please? This is feeling less like a coherent show and more like an anthology series.

I have more questions, because the writers really didn't think this idea through. This may not be a good episode, but it's certainly thought-provoking, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

* Michael doesn't blend in with human society very well. He's weird and off-putting from the beginning. And why doesn't he do a better job covering his tracks, instead of letting Lupin learn that's he's using a deserted mansion? Does he want Lupin and Fujiko to discover who and what he really is?
* Is Fujiko still an atheist? Wouldn't meeting a literal angel be a life-changing experience that would make her re-evaluate her beliefs?
* How will Lupin and Fujiko explain all this to Jigen and Goemon? "Oh yeah, the archangel Michael tried to get us to steal Satan's corpse because God wanted us to, but we noped out. Just another day at the office!"

P.S. I've created this page now: Lupin III Part 6 / Headscratchers - TV Tropes Thanks to Nobodyman for the Star Trek quote!

This is episode #2 written by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame. Both of his episodes are quite bizarre and pretentious.

Also despite the marathon happening July 2, Hidive will still stream the next episode on the 4th so starting next week Toonami will be behind Hidive.

If so, Rule 34 is set to get a revolution soon...
Overs the years, I have come to understand how tone & attitude is something that isn't easy to convey in a typed/written format like the Internet.
A character on The Simpsons made the case that animation is a field built on plagiarism. I think the same thing could be said for comic books and video games, as well.

Just ask, and I could provide examples for both.

Did you ever hear any news about the new animated PPG being revived by Hanna-Barbera Studios? If so, do you look forward to it?

New word for today* is "Taft-Hartleying".

*Discovered it a couple days ago, but put it off until now.
