Irresponsible Captain Tylor

Irresponsible Captain Tylor

The future of humanity is in peril, as they are confronted with the threat of an intergalactic clash with a warrior-like alien race, and the only one who can save them is... Captain Tylor?! Join a crew of misfits and rejects including an alcoholic doctor, a gorgeous nurse, an anal-retentive commander and a bunch of really stupid marines as they try to make it out in space and to discover whether their captain is a misunderstood genius or a total moron like he seems to be.

If you liked Lupin The Third, you'd also like Irresponsible Captain Tylor, because the characters in both anime are very similar. Their attitudes and behaviour are reminiscent of each other. Also, they have the same type of setting and humor. Yamamoto is always on the lookout for a chance to get some form of command, hoping to get a ship of his own one day. Zenigata, on the other hand, tries to catch Lupin in order to reach his goal in life. Yamamoto's mental health seems continuously imperiled thanks to Tylor's behavior and the same goes for Zenigata. Tylor is a great show that you have to see if you liked Lupin The 3rd.

"Which is the L, and which is the R?" That's one question Jack Hofner and Rowe Rickenbacker of the duo L/R hear much too often. Employed by the Royal Family as secret agents, it's their job to carry out various agendas to protect the good of the people of Ishtar. With Jack's suave manner and Rowe's rebellious attitude, there's nothing that can keep them from their goals - whether it be helping restore a long-lost princess to her throne, racing against time (and a laser-shooting satellite) to find treasure within ancient ruins, or discovering the identity of a mysterious terrorist called Angel.

Both L/R and Lupin are great spy stories (though L/R are the good guys and Lupin a criminal) that will entertain any fan of the genre. L/R's animation is very similar to Lupin III and they both have the same musical feel.

Magic Kaito

Magic Kaito
  • TV Special (12+ eps x 24 min)
  • 2010 - ?

By day Kaitou Kuroba is a regular high school student with an aptitude for magic, but by night he transforms into the notorious thief and master of disguise, Kaitou Kid! Announcing his next target to the police by way of a note, Kaitou Kid uses every trick in the book to steal the loot of his dreams from under the nose of his rival, Inspector Nakamori. From a jewel-encrusted crown to a rare pink diamond, there's no challenge too tough for the young thief, no matter how impossible the situation may seem or how many officers attempt to stand in his way.

Both Lupin and Kaito Kid are notorious thieves who use tricks and misdirection to fool their various rivals (Zenigata and Nakamori respectively). They also both have a habit of sending notes announcing what they will steal and when in order to challenge the police. While Lupin is generally more grown up in terms of content, if you like the action and trickery of one, then definitely try out the other.


  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...

While Lupin is more suited to older audiences, I think both of these anime have a strong resemblence with each other. Lupin is about criminals while Metropolis is about the same. They both have assassins and guys who try to rival them and help out with the people they like/love.

Monkey Punch no Sekai: Alice

Monkey Punch no Sekai: Alice
  • OVA (1 ep x 47 min)
  • 1991

Alice was a beautiful woman who betrayed the wrong man and died, and as a result of her actions, the man (a mad scientist) decided to resurrect her. Using the skin from his brain, heart, and "love organ", he spent sixty years designing his beloved's new image and purpose: to be men's eternal sex slave. Fast forward to the present, and the man is on his death bed. He charges Don Jirochou, his adopted son, to hunt down Alice and kill her for her betrayal. And so, Don sets forth to find Alice and put an end to her - but not before he puts it IN her as well, multiple times!

Well, the same studio created both Lupin and Alice, and it shows. The character designs are remarkably similar, though admittedly Alice looks absolutely horrendous in comparison. Each has a suave leading man who is great with the ladies, and the same kind of campy feel; the only difference is that Lupin is decent and a classic, while Alice is pretty much the worst anime ever. If you liked one, you may enjoy the other - just keep the difference in mind.
