"It’s been quite a few years since the last Lupin the Third series aired on TV, but in that time there have also been a number of movies all showing in more from the world’s best thief. Now, a new series has come and instead of following the standard layout of quirky adventures for the title characters and friends, this new series focuses on one big story line focused on the main female, Fujiko Mine. Does this new series have what it takes to carry the name of Lupin the Third? How does giving Fujiko a central role in the plot impact the entire series?"
