The Tale of a Mighty Fine Lady

The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is a fun and intriguing anime. For not only does it capture the style and humour of the original Monkey Punch manga,  it also takes some terrible cliches and drops them on their heads. And i feel it is worth mentioning the director and the overseeing writer of the series are both women.

Going in, i knew absolutely nothing about this series, other than it focused on Fujiko Mine, the trailer i posted above, and the art in the first episode on youtube were enough to sell me on it. i mean, how goregous is that art style? How fantastic is that soundtrack?

The gist of the story is bringing the gang together and getting to know them, and mostly learning the story of Fujiko.Which basically turned out to be that of sexy lady thief in the 1960s.

Hi-diddle-dee-dee, goddamn, a pirates life for me.
