The famous French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun." That certainly seems to be the M.O. for the new televised Lupin anime, A Woman Called Fujiko.


The anime recently debuted on Japanese TV (check out the first episode here). In the gallery above, you can see the screencaps from the second.

The anime features both guns and girls—Fujiko seems to spend much of this episode walking around with no clothes on. Daisuke Jigen, the dude in the hat, looks incredibly badass as does the show's art style.

It's nice to see a cool and sexy anime that doesn't take place in high school—it's also nice to see a cool and sexy anime directed by a female.

Do hope that this helps trigger a recalibration in Japanese anime, which has been dominated by gooey moé characters for far too long. Make anime for adults with adults.

"Do hope that this helps trigger a recalibration in Japanese anime, which has been dominated by gooey moé characters for far too long. Make anime for adults with adults. "

Pretty simple reason why the moe blob stuff took over. It costs less to make and there's money to be made in merchandising for those kinds of shows. "Adult" oriented shows started becoming far too risky and expensive. I'm one to rarely pull the blame piracy card but its pretty obvious that in the case of the anime industry its one of the biggest reasons DVD/bluray sales have plummeted so far and we've seen many good western publishers go completely bankrupt and out of business.
