General summary of Lupine III

Arsène Lupine III, the grandson of the fictional thief Arsène Lupine, is considered the greatest thief in the world. His right-wing husband and best friend is Daisuke Jigen, an experienced marksman who can shoot a target accurately in 0.3 seconds. Although Lupine and Jigen often work as a two-man team, they are often aided by Goemon Ishikawa XIII, a master swordsman whose sword can cut anything, and Fujiko Mine, a deadly woman and Lupin's love interest. Although Fujiko generally works with others, she occasionally takes advantage of Lupin's interest in her to steal the treasure for herself. Lupine and his gang are constantly being hunted down by Interpol's inspector Koichi Zenigata, who has made it his mission to arrest them and hunt Lupine around the world.
