    Product Description

    She's a thief. A killer. A saint and a scandal. She's whatever you need her to be to get the job done. After sizing you up with one sinful glance, she disarms you with a touch. You're powerless to resist. She's walking seduction, with an insatiable itch for the priceless and a fetish for mischief. She takes your breath away to get what she wants. She takes everything else just because she can. It's all in a night's work for the woman called Fujiko Mine. She's the slinky, sultry thread that holds Lupin III's crew together - and this is the heist that started it all.

    Amazon.com

    Created by artist Monkey Punch (Kazuhiko Kato) in 1967 for Manga Action, Lupin III is a master thief who's directly descended from Poe's Arsène Lupin. Since his animated debut in 1971, Lupin has remained one of the most popular characters in cartoon history, starring in television series, feature films, and OVAs. The Woman Called Fujiko Mine (2012) represents another installment in the franchise. But the filmmakers have changed the characters and their relationships--and not for the better. Lupin's friends/sidekicks, crack shot Daisuke Jigen and ultimate samurai Goemon Ishikawa XIII, vie with him for Fujiko's charms instead of working together. Lupin still manages to stay one step ahead of Interpol inspector Zenigata, but the fanatic cop has been transformed into a corrupt officer who sleeps with Fujiko and uses her as bait. Fujiko herself has gone from a clever crook who out-foxes Lupin to a longed-for "princess," whose main function is to walk around undressed. No one expects profundity from Lupin's adventures, but director Sayo Yamamoto and his crew seem to think a lot of nattering dialogue and dark, cluttered backgrounds will make up for a lack of plot. Fast-paced chases with James Bond-style technical devices and over-the-top gun fights have always been the main attractions of the Lupin franchise, but these chases generate little excitement and the fights lack panache: again and again, Lupin dashes through a barrage of gunfire in his weird, bowlegged run without getting so much as a nick. The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is clearly aimed at hormonal adolescents seeking fan service hubba-hubba shots; it's difficult to imagine anyone else being entertained by it. (Rated TV MA: violence, violence against women, extensive nudity, sexual situations including bondage and lesbianism, risqué humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

    The character development is great I loved the story of jigen.
    Brett Pulliam
    In this series, there's no more innuendos from Fujiko as she is flat out overt in her sexuality.
    B. Sounthonevichith
    The animation on this title is quite unique, and definitely something you either love or hate.

    Any fan who knows anything about anime knows who Lupin the Third is, but do they truly know about his compatriots? This series is primarily about Fujiko Mine, not Arsene Lupin, as the title implies. The mystery of Fujiko is the main drive for this series, and how she may be tied with a mysterious organization of owl obsessed fanatics. Yes, an owl organization. It sounds absurd, but it works in the confines of this series. In fact, the owl imagery is so unusual and random, it is downright scary.

    The first thing a viewer would notice when watching this show is that Fujiko Mine doesn't seem to wear clothes a lot of the time. This is very apparent in the opening and the first few episodes. Because of this, and the dark elements of the story, this is not a series for younger anime fans at all.

    Zenigata, Goemon, and Jigen are the other popular Lupin characters that also appear in this series. Their pasts are described finally, and they are particularly different than in the TV series from the 70's. The detective, Zenigata, is the most different from the original series. This time he is actually depicted competently, and not portrayed as a bumbling fool of a detective. There is a new reoccurring character as well. His name is Oscar, a detective that works under Zenigata. He is a very interesting character, but mere mention of the details would spoil any fun that he brings to the show. Episode 6 is where he really gets to shine with some unusual plot twists revolving around him.

    The most obvious aspect about the entire show, and the reason that I watched it was the art style. It looks like the show is from the 60's, but it still looks like a new show. The art style look like it is drawn by pencil, much like the original manga.

    Generally speaking, I'm not a big anime buff. Out of the handful that have won me over, Lupin the Third has wormed its way deepest into my heart. So I'm surprised that it still hasn't entered the mainstream in the United States, despite enjoying a popularity in Japan for nearly five decades that rivals that of James Bond elsewhere.

    Lupin's most well-known adventures internationally are probably Lupin the III: The Castle of Cagliostro (Special Edition), an action-packed but largely G-rated romp from Hayao Miyazaki, and the 1977 - 1980 anime series, a zany Saturday morning type of cartoon known by most fans as the "red jacket series." There's nothing Saturday morning or G-rated about the character's latest series, but it's arguably the best thing to happen to the franchise since Miyazaki's 1979 entry.

    This is a darker, edgier reboot in the current trend, taking a more adult, character-focused approach to the series. It reimagines the first meeting of master thief Lupin III, allegedly the grandson of Maurice Lablanc's Arsene Lupin, sharp-shooter Daisuke Jigen, and swordsman Goemon Ishikawa XIII, through a different point of view; this time, the focal character is femme fatale Fujiko Mine, a popular character who, in most recent specials, has been shrunken to a supporting role. Here, she's presented as the series' lead. Sayo Yamamoto is the first female director to helm a Lupin series. It seems all the franchise needed was a woman's touch.

    This one definitely isn't for the kids. The opening titles alone are almost filled with enough nudity to make series creator Monkey Punch blush.

    Let me start of by saying I own every English dub US released Lupin The 3rd movie and television series, and this is by far my favorite voice cast. I absolutely love the darker sexier take on the series. Even though the story focuses on Fujiko Mine, Lupin and the gang are never too far out a frame. I also found it refreshing to see them focus on one of the supporting cast members instead of just making it all about Lupin. This is definitely one of my favorite Lupin installments yet and it's a good place to start if you're new to the franchise because it is basically an origin story of how the gang got together.

    Get ready for a more adult, manga-oriented take on the Lupin III mythos, all from the perspective of Fujiko Mine. This retelling of the early days of the Lupin Gang is nothing short of brilliant. The daringly different animation style and character designs fit the story being told to perfection. Sketchier renderings, darker tones, and an art style that is more true to the manga (though it doesn't duplicate Monkey Punch's original designs) is highly appropriate for something that starts as an unrestrained, chaotic, erotic romp and gradually morphs into tense gothic horror.

    Yes, there's nudity. Whatever. Get over it. The Lupin III franchise, as a whole, has never been all that shy about sexuality, so I fail to see the fuss.

    One is a collector's edition set and one is the standard box set. Funimation likes to do this for fans of series they release, though it's hard to distinguish which one is which at the moment since they aren't labeled differently. The only difference is whichever one is the collector's set will... Read More
