Fujiko Mine. Known from Lupin III created by Monkey Punch, debuted in Weekly Manga Action on August 10, 1967. She is one of the oldest Waifus and anime heroine in the service, who is still on duty, including the Detective Conan Crossovers. ;-)
She is a professional criminal and burglar that regularly uses her attractiveness to fool her targets. Unlike the rest of the Lupin III cast, Fujiko's physical appearance changes for most installments in the franchise.
Fujiko was a source of inspiration for the characters Yukiko Fujimine and Vermouth in Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan manga; Fujimine representing the good side of Fujiko and Vermouth the bad.[SECRET REPORT: Weekly Shōnen Sunday; 10. July 31, 2013]
Funny fact. A running gag in the Lupin III franchise is the constant attempt of Lupin to peeping when Fujiko baths. There are indeed massive merchandise, which revolves around this topic. ;-)
Why I adore Fujiko Mine so much is not just her sexiness, or that she knows how to play her charms to wrap men around her finger. Her character is also extremely funny, tough and if she is not kidnapped again for the plot, then she likes to take the loot away from the others. Moreover, her past has been quite mysterious for decades. Lupin the Third – Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna is one of the best anime miniseries I’ve ever seen. If you like the Sex’n’Crime genre, of course.
The death of Kazuhiko Kato (alias Monkey Punch) in April 2019 is certainly a serious blow to the Lupin III franchise. He was a driving force, who knew how to put strong female characters into the scene, but also how to make them entertaining, tough and attractive at the same time. The world needs a lot more waifus like Fujiko Mine. ;-)
