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...
Arsene Lupin the Third is the world’s most notorious thief, a master of disguise and an unashamed ladies man! Working alongside his partner-in-crime Jigen, the carefree Lupin, shoots, steals and flirts his way across the world while avoiding his ever-persistent nemesis, Inspector Zenigata. Whether he is trying to win a Grand Prix race, defeat an invincible magician or steal a set of precious playing cards from a millionaire, nothing is impossible for the great Lupin the Third.
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.
