Lupin the 3rd: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna episode 10 – Dead City

In this episode, Lupin investigates a group of owl people who desire Fujiko and begins to learn more about Fujiko’s past whilst fighting off illusions brought on by a strange drug. This episode is very surreal and I’m blown away at how well this episode was pulled off.

Arguably, this episode is the best so far and for a good reason: This episode was written by Dai Sato. I really like how the episode totally explored Mine Fujiko’s past in a well executed surreal manner. This episode provides a great connection to the events of the first episode. Another thing this episode wonderfully did was that it explained the owl presence that has haunted the previous episodes and explore the character of the owl baron. I also liked how this episode highlighted Oscar’s character; I’m intrigued as to how will Oscar’s character develop given with his failures thus far in capturing Fujiko and being reminded that this whole thing is Zenigata’s case. Will he make it his life mission to capture Mine Fujiko or will he meet his demise by the end of this series?

This episode is proof that anything that Dai Sato writes is a quality output. Heck this episode was so amazing that it was so awesome without Fujiko in it. In today’s era of anime, a Dai Sato written anime series is and would always be welcome.

  1. I agree with you in that this is the best written episode so far. I was taken back by the amount of detail they could put in a short 30 minute episode without losing audiences in the confusion. I’m dying to see how everything pans out in the end. And tying in such a dark background to the light hearted, funny first episode was quite spectacular.

  2. This was really illuminati turn based. Owls are representation of them and I see it as similar to what happened in the fourth kind. And the owl baron and his crew are similar to the council of owls batman fights in the new 52. It bugs me that owls are showing up everywhere considering their representation
