Lupin the Third, grandson of the "gentleman thief," Arsene Lupin, traveles the world in search of challenging loot to steal, along with his companions: The sharpshooter Daisuke Jigen, the swordsman Ishikawa Goemon XIII, and the deadly beauty Fujiko Mine. Chasing them to the ends of the earth is the redoubtable ICPO officer Inspector Koichi (The Ol' Man) Zenigata. Whether it's a billion dollars' ransom menat to save the city of Pisa, Italy, a solid gold van, or the mask of Tutankamen, Lupin will go after it! Written by

The third season's opening credits are a montage of Lupin and his gang showing off their skills (Lupin at a pool table, Jigen shooting a grape off a bunch, Fujiko dancing, Goemon cutting down an opponent), while Zenigata chases them. See more »
I'm not a huge fan of anime, but for some reason, I love Lupin. Ever since it premiered on Adult Swim back in January, I've gotten a huge liking for it. Plus, it's so darn entertaining!!!
The cool thing about this show is how Lupin, and company in each episode always encounter a bad guy who may have something involved with what they're after. Of course to add more trouble is the restless Interpol inspector Zenigata whose been after Lupin for 7 years. In between these factors is off the wall antics, sexual themes, and lots, and LOTS of cleavage(courtesy of Fujiko).
Overall I like the show. It's pretty appealing, and it won me over from day one. If you've never seen this show, I suggest you check it out. You may like it.
P.S. Fujiko is HOT for a cartoon!
