To call Lupin The 3rd important is a severe understatement, it's influenced many anime. Pretty much any western style anime about a bunch of crazy characters going on adventures and getting into trouble owes something to Lupin The 3rd but that does that mean it's still relevant? It's still popular in Japan sure but with how many stagnant specials and how silly it can be, The franchise was started to get pretty stale, it definitely needed a change of pace to keep things interesting.

The result was to change Lupin from a cartoony comedy to a gritty Film Noir and to have the main character read more

I'm going to say this from the start: Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is, to me, an absolutely outstanding piece of art. I'll also say this: this review is gonna be unbelievably pretentious. Sorry :p.

It's probably not unfair to say that a lot of people, if not most people, watch anime primarily for straight-up, unadulterated enjoyment - fun, in other words - and this style of anime utterly floods the market. However, every so often there comes an anime or two that break the mold, and these more daring shows are absolutely crucial to reviving such a stagnant medium. I'd like to read more

I've rewatched this several times to get a better perspective and open my opinion. Woow! As any Lupin franchise fan knows, the history of the characters is volatile and trying to make any one back story canon will make your head explode. That said, I think this series has possibly the best back story for the characters.

CHARACTERS: Fujiko has never been one of my favorite characters. I think Jigen and I share the same opinion of her. But her meeting with the main characters (in this series at least) is great. First there was the Lupin episode (what happens at the end of that read more

The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is certainly not standard Lupin III fare. Rather than the comical and over the top antics you would expect of Lupin and his group as they steal and outwit Zenigata, the humor here is more subdued and the series has a darker, more serious and mature feel to it. Fujiko finds herself the main attraction of this series as the first half to this series is prominently focused on her tackling different thefts while encountering Lupin, Goemon and Jigen individually and the second half features the four being caught up in the activity of a mysterious organization that Fujiko appears read more

Anime: Kanashimi no Belladonna
Both have a similar art style and center around a mysterious and beautiful woman enslaved by her own desires.

Anime: Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman
In both series, there's a sense of action, drama, and adventure. Lupin and Roman have similar physical traits as well as personalities who starts in their respective series.

The artwork from both series are somewhat similar in terms of character designs.

They also have a similar atmosphere with that sense of thrilling fun and ridiculous gags thrown in at occasions.

Anime: Samurai Champloo
A series of short stories and adventures. Both animes also have similar style and setup.

Anime: The Big O
- Both shows American style
- both freaky adventure, denying logic and physics
- light noir
- Ms. Angel is a shadow of Fujiko
- similar relationships between police inspector and protagonist

Anime: Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
Both shows have a wide range of clever, scheming characters that don't exactly act as either the heroes or villains of the series.The shows both have a lot of action, and have violence in many parts as well. They also share a dark, jazzy vibe, making it feel like the viewer is really in the shadows of the big city. (Note: Fujiko Mine is much more sexually explicit than DTB, though more for artistic reasons rather than for fanservice).
