Thanks for the cookie. I'm pleasantly surprise that more people are starting to get this - To get that term drift often causes more trouble than what it's worth. I guess that "Slice of Life" becoming almost unusable started to make people realize that word definitions/use must at least have some standards.
On Lupin III - I've already watched its first episode, but I admit I haven't gotten around to Episode 2 yet. This has been a very strong Spring season, so I find it hard to squeeze in everything I want to watch (for example, I only got fully caught up with Space Bros. last night, lol).
But, I liked Lupin III's first episode. It's yet another case of an anime being so refreshingly different from usual. I love how its very sexy without feeling degrading to the characters. In other words, Fujiko Mine's alluring sexual appeal is showcased well, but not in a way that saps her strength (i.e. making her seem very bashful/submissive, say) or makes it hard to take her seriously.
Between you and Last Sinner, I decided to finally start watching Mysterious Girlfriend X. And I have to say that I really liked its first episode! I'll probably post on the series thread for it after I've watched the 2nd episode.
I like the romantic pairing here, and I like how it's really their story. No love triangles, no harem shenanigans, just a normal (but creative/imaginative) guy and a cute (but in a different way, and quirky) girl.
