Trivia / Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

  • The series marks the first time either Michelle Ruff or Richard Epcar lent their voices to a Texas production.
  • The Other Darrin: In a way. The Funimation actors for Fujiko and Zenigata had retired, so actors from the "Red Jacket" cast were used instead — Michelle Ruff reprised Fujiko, and Richard Epcar took over for Zenigata.
    • Zenigata's an especially notable case; they were trying to find voice actors with experience with the franchise. While Michelle Ruff reprised her role, most of Zenigata's voice actors weren't even in the industry anymore, either having retired or moved on to other things. Christopher Sabat, who voiced Jigen in all of Funimation's dubs, admitted that it felt a bit odd calling up Richard Epcar, seeing how he voiced Jigen in Red Jacket. Fortunately, Richard liked the franchise and was happy to be involved in any capacity.
  • What Could Have Been: The production crew behind Toonami on [adult swim] were eyeing this show as a potential replacement for Michiko & Hatchin. However, because there was too much nudity that would've had to be edited out, they instead went for Samurai Champloo.
