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.
