Creation

Lupin III Vol. 1 (Sep 1974)

Fujiko Mine is a main character from the Lupin III series that was created by Monkey Punch. Lupin III first appeared in Futabasha's seinen magazine Weekly Manga Action on August 10, 1967 through to 1972. The second series, Lupin III: World's Most Wanted, was serialized in the same magazine from 1977-1981. Monkey Punch has described the tenuous relationship between Fujiko and Lupin by describing it as "they enjoy each other" and compared it to his own marriage.

Fujiko's name literally translates to "twin peaks of Fuji". This is a pun of her generously proportioned bust, which has been the only standard feature in her designs through the decades.

Her first appearance was in Lupin III Vol. 1 Ch. 3 "Mystery Woman", and her first anime appearance was in Lupin III - Episode 1 "Is Lupin Burning...?!". She's been voiced by various actresses throughout the long run of the various Lupin III anime.

During a 2007 poll held in the Oricon magazine, readers had been asked which character they would most like to see have their own featured series. Among the female readers, Fujiko ranked at number seven, and took fifth place in the overall votes. In that same year, Oricon asked readers who was the most beautiful woman in all of manga. Fujiko took first place among both male and female voters. Mania.com recognized Fujiko as the second most iconic female manga character.

In 2012, Fujiko took on the starring role of her own Lupin III spin-off called Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. The series first began airing in April 3, 2012.

Character Evolution

Fujiko Mine is the only member of the reoccurring main cast from the Lupin III series that has had major redesigns through the different iteration of the series. The only standard feature is the enormous breasts that she's famous for. She's more shown having long brown hair and brown eyes. The episodic nature of the manga series, her appearances have been treated as her first.

Fujiko is not considered part of Lupin's main game and is often pitted against him for the same goal. Her personality has been frequently depicted as superficial and greedy. Though, she more often teams up with them in the end. She's been very promiscuous through the series and sleeping with other men to gather information. This is actually similar to Lupin womanizing ways from the original manga. In fact, it should be noted that Lupin and Fujiko frequently slept together in the manga. It was the anime productions that had Lupin coming on to Fujiko but almost never succeeding.

Despite Fujiko's frequent treachery, she's always been concerned about Lupin's safety and has shown to even love him, but only admitting so when she believed one or the both of them were near death. In the instances that she's honestly thought Lupin has died. She has broken down crying and calling out unashamedly that she feels that she can go on without him. However, this honest admission of her feelings never lasts once she finally sees he's alive.
