Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine (LUPIN the Third -峰不二子という女- Rupan za Saado Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna?) is a television spin-off based on the Lupin III manga series written and illustrated by Monkey Punch. It was produced by TMS Entertainment, and broadcasted by Nippon TV between April 4, 2012 and June 27, 2012.

This TV spin-off was made to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Lupin the 3rd Part 1. It focuses on the franchise's heroine, Fujiko Mine, as she undergoes various missions and encounters the rest of the Lupin III cast for the first time. It is the only installment in the franchise to be directed by a woman and the first TV series in which Lupin is not the main character.

It started off a more mature oriented universe of the franchise known as "Lupin the IIIrd" that character designer Takeshi Koike took over to direct.

  • This was originally going to air in the US on Toonami however due to the gratuitous nudity of the show, it got refused.[1] It would have required vast amounts of editing before it was suitable enough to meet broadcasting standards. Due to this, the English dub went straight to DVD and Blu-ray.
  • The original website was however the page has since been removed. A partial archive can be found here but the broadcast page was not backed up.
  • The "Koikeverse" series & movies follow the mangas in character personalities & art closely & have no shared continuity with parts 1-5. However, Part 5 references the events of the series as well as all the others. There is no consensus as to whether it's a prequel or an alternate continuity.
  • The title comes from a line said in Part 1 Episode 5 by Sandayu Momochi.
