    Oh snap, it's G-Man! This was a great surprise. It would be cool to see you drop by from time to time.

    I really should go back and check some of the classics out some time. There's always so much new content to check out that I guess I just haven't thought about digging that far into the past. Of the three mentioned in the video I think Lupin III is the most appealing to me, sounds fun.

    Captain Harlock gets my vote. Good video, although things took an odd turn around the 0:50 mark

    Best pre-80s show would be Mazinger Z for me.  Then again, I got mecha bias all up in this shit.

    @Turambar: I loved that too. But when I was a kid, it only showed on a channel in Spanish. I could follow most of it. Some was a bit too fast.

    I wish I could say I was surprised by this reveal, but I sort of suspected this may happen after I listened to the Comic Vine podcast last week. Still happy about it. Hope you all were able to film a few of these.

    LUPIN III is a great series, but I can't get over how much I enjoyed the vibe of THE WOMAN CALLED FUJIKO MINE.

    As you were introduced, I started playing ACDC'S "Back in Black". In fact, if you start the video then the song. The lyrics start up just as you're revealed.

    I wonder what song would be fitting if they could get Sara or Mat??

    I love me some 'Big Bang Punch' but Lupin III gets my preference :)

    Big Bang Punch was a homage to Giant Robo in the Mazinger Z remake.  Breast Fire was as good as the 80's Mazinger Z got.

    I could never get into old Lupin when it used to come on tv. Was it similar in tone to the recent tv series? I remember it being silly in a cartoony way while the new one felt more like Pulp Fiction.
