Ratings & Reviews
An Artsier and more abstract take on Lupin
For those used to seeing zany capers The Woman Named Fujiko Mine might be offputting; it's darker in tone and more thoughtful in the way that some might call pretentious but it's an interesting take on the character of Fujiko in particular. This series expands on her as The One Heart Lupin Can't Steal while also taking her in new directions. While men like Lupin have often been considered as an ideal and not just a man it's much rarer to see that done with women like Fujiko; the idea and results both are worth watching as there's a strong artistic vision here though not every episode works and some are very paint-by-numbers.
At its best I'd compare it to Utena and at its worst it's good if less wacky Lupin. While I've always liked the Lupin dub's cheesiness I'd recommend watching the Japanese track for this one; there's a stellar performance by Yuki Kaji that you should hear if you only know him for voicing milquetoast harem show protagonists.
