LUPIN III: THE WOMAN CALLED FUJIKO MINE #3 -- Watch & Learn

Goemon should've been using sex as his weapon.

It’s clear now that Goemon’s strength comes from his clothing-vaporizing sword… and his weakness lies in his sweetly-hopeless inexperience with girls. You’d think that former would help with the latter - - but when the wonderfully over-the-top moment comes when this modern day samurai cuts Fujiko’s attire down to little more than a strategically-placed belt, the encounter winds up as eventful for the guy as a strictly-platonic hug from his babysitter. What a patsy, right?

It’s been real fun watching the titular Ms. Fujiko work her feminine wiles so effectively on all these otherwise untouchable action heroes. Here, she gets a badass master assassin to flutter his eyes like a little puppy dog and blubber sheepishly about how she could be the perfect girlfriend for him. It’s a novel change of pace to see the protagonist using sex as a weapon in a field where mecha suits and psycho cannons are more often the tools of choice.

While on the subject of covert sexiness (and, really, are we ever off it?) - - did any of you lunatics find the visual double-entendres here to be a real stitch? Out of all the ways for Ms. Fujiko to handle that little rabbit cut-out, she chooses to fondle it ever-so-delicately? Out of all images to engrave the buckle of that expensive belt, it ends up being the face of a groaning man placed directly over her privates? Like I observed with the intro, this show most assuredly plays the Bond game of sexy sight gags a bit less coyly.

Watch this episode, "The Lady And The Samurai" here and decide for yourself, then read my comments on the previous episode here.
