Lupin, Jigen and Goemon are on a quest to find treasure hidden on Drift Isle- a mysterious island scattered with corpses. However, while searching for the loot, they come across a monstrous security system. Never one to run from a setback, Lupin decides to challenge the Military General who rules the mainland country, and steal Drift Isle’s treasure. However, with the security system to crack and the nation in a state of rebellion, Lupin has a lot to contend with… especially when he has a bounty placed on his head: $1 million, dead or alive!
Black Jack is a deeply shady character; a heavily-scarred and black-wearing unlicensed surgeon who charges extortionate fees, he cuts a sinister figure. Children fear him, and the medical establishment despises him. He lives on the edge of town, speaking to only a few people, and he comes and goes as he wishes. When a serious attempt is made on Black Jack's life, destroying his cliff-top residence in the process, Black Jack swings into action to find the culprit. His only clue is a faded sepia photograph, showing his mentor and benefactor, Dr. Honma, alongside other mystery figures. Traveling around the world and facing great dangers, Black Jack seeks to find out the truth behind the organization which wants him dead!
Both Black Jack 21 and Lupin III Dead or Alive involve the protagonist being targeted by people who want them dead. Also both are at times extremely over the top and for maximum enjoyment should not be taken TOO seriously. So if you like the action and death threats in one then you may well enjoy the other.
Fujiko Mine: a woman so beguiling that the greatest thief on earth, Lupin III, has vowed to claim her as his most prized quarry. And while men lust after her, she only has eyes for one thing – all the beautiful treasures in the world that she can possibly steal. From the haunted opera houses of Japan to the boobie-trapped pyramids of Egypt, Fujiko uses both violence and sex to manipulate those who stand in her way. But with the tireless Lupin intervening in every situation to 'take' her, and the skilled rogues Jigen and Goemon entangling their own personal vendettas with hers, how is a woman to realize her wildest desires?
Lupin titles are non-linier. You can watch them in any order.
If you want another Lupin title like Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna, that is edgy, and had a more artistic look to it, you can not go to far from the title Dead or Alive. Of the Lupin titles these two had the most stand out animation.
If you saw Dead or alive, and like that high quality, and Lupin a little more serious (well as serious as lupin gets) catch Fujiko Mine
