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

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

Animated by Nippon Animation, which has made many movies and specials over the decades, the most famous being this one. Lupin the Third is historically speaking the first great action/adventure anime, and also one of the oldest still living franchises, over 50 years old and continuously making more entries every year. It stopped having many fans decades ago though, since it was always episodic and repetitive. It didn’t have much variety in its missions and nobody would develop, much less be killed if he is a major character, so this was expected. Furthermore, although you could always appreciate its zany comedy, spicy erotic humor, and read more

The new Lupin III will be a treat for old fans of the franchise. But will is stand up against the competition of new shows this season?

The story is about the sly lady thief Fujiko Mine, the mysterious fox that often helps Lupin and the gang. In this installment, it takes us back to before Lupin met Fujiko and the rest of the gang.

This new installment in the Lupin III franchise is delightfully sexy and raunchy, and definitely isn't for the younger audience. With unrestrained sexual tension and nudity, the character interaction is playful and dangerous, and is a whole other dynamic than one is read more

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: 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).
