Well, that became strangely mythical. It feels kinda out-of-place for this show.

So, this series is supposed to involve Lupin and Sherlock Holmes, right? Can we get back to that, please? This is feeling less like a coherent show and more like an anthology series.

I have more questions, because the writers really didn't think this idea through. This may not be a good episode, but it's certainly thought-provoking, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

* Michael doesn't blend in with human society very well. He's weird and off-putting from the beginning. And why doesn't he do a better job covering his tracks, instead of letting Lupin learn that's he's using a deserted mansion? Does he want Lupin and Fujiko to discover who and what he really is?
* Is Fujiko still an atheist? Wouldn't meeting a literal angel be a life-changing experience that would make her re-evaluate her beliefs?
* How will Lupin and Fujiko explain all this to Jigen and Goemon? "Oh yeah, the archangel Michael tried to get us to steal Satan's corpse because God wanted us to, but we noped out. Just another day at the office!"

P.S. I've created this page now: Lupin III Part 6 / Headscratchers - TV Tropes Thanks to Nobodyman for the Star Trek quote!

This is episode #2 written by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame. Both of his episodes are quite bizarre and pretentious.

Also despite the marathon happening July 2, Hidive will still stream the next episode on the 4th so starting next week Toonami will be behind Hidive.

Now that the September Disney premieres are out, I hope that TOH finale comes out either in October or November.
I used to be more into Star Wars than Star Trek. But the older I get, the more I find myself gravitating away from Star Wars in favor of Star Trek. Go figure.

I thought Paramount Global/Viacom only owned the Atlas-Oceanic and duArt dubs but not the 4kids and Cinélume dubs of Winx Club? Because the latter two never once aired on Nickelodeon.
