Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is a 2012 Japanese anime series based on Monkey Punch’s Lupin III manga. Produced by TMS Entertainment and Po10tial, it aired on NTV from April 4, 2012 to June 27, 2012. It focuses on the franchise’s heroine, Fujiko Mine, as she undergoes various missions and encounters the rest of the Lupin III cast for the first time. Unlike the franchise’s previous three televised anime, The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is more sexually oriented in order to capture the “sensuality” present in the original manga as well as darker and more serious. It is also the first in which Lupin is not the main protagonist.
