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.
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).
You think the series will be light and happy like other fare in its genre. Then you're slapped in the face with the darkness of the show as well as the strange animation style (the witches realities and the Fraulein Eule sway are very similar).
Smart and agile Lupin/Sanji have weakness and this weakness is women, especially beautiful, greedy and sly female trief Fujiko Mine/Nami who always tries to substitute and outwit him (as well as other men). Joins the party strong but clumsy samurai Goemon/Zoro and skillful shooter Daisuke Jigen/Usopp. Adventure atmosphere and almost identical art.
"Cease what you are doing and gaze at me. Stop everything, except for the beat of your heart.
Theft: It is an especially sweet vice; more elegant than vandalism and more complex than simple robbery. A beautiful blend of secrets and crime and mischief and fear.
Like dear Heathcliff, I'm defined by my all-consuming passion. Stealing is my great carnal pleasure, a pleasure for which which I will risk my life; a sexy prison from which there is no escape.
Why am I this way?... Who can know? Who is the slave, and who is the master?
Do divine eyes fall upon me any longer, or have they given up?
The rush of the theft allows me to forget all, and yet distantly remember all as well.
Run, and speak not. Hide, and run not. When you've found me, punish me. When you've punished me, kill me. Save me.
Little boy, there is nothing left to steal from you: You've long been an empty shell, just as I have. And so, if would gaze at me, cease what you are doing; stop everything... except for the beat of your heart."
Theft has never been so sexy. Femme fatale heroines wrap men around their fingers with their feminine wiles and powers of seduction in order to get what they want. Whether it's displays athleticism in skintight attire or disguise, there's no stopping these ladies.
Cat's Eye is far more cartoonish and nowhere near as sexual as Fujiko--probably much closer to the older Lupin anime in terms of tone.
