Cardia lives alone due to a strange condition which causes anyone who touches her to be burned as if by acid. She cannot remember how this came to be, since the last thing she recalls is her father admonishing her two years ago to never fall in love. She finds an unlikely ally in the form of the chivalrous thief Arsene Lupin, who may be able to help her find the secret behind her condition.

(Most of one episode watched):

Is this a prequel for the Lupin III series? When I heard the name of the male protagonist, Arsene Lupin, that thought occurred to me. But one thing which didn't occur to me at any point was much interest in this story. Whereas Lupin III is a wisecracking thief with a good deal of panache, this guy doesn't even seem to tell bad jokes, much less good ones, and is pitched at us without any personality except that he's trying to undo a (slightly) bad deed committed by a British aristocrat and soldiers (would it have been too difficult to check and find what the traditional color of British uniforms is red, not yellow?), so he must be the good guy, right? And Cardia must be good, since she is cute and has a curse upon her. That sort of unambitious storytelling doesn't cut it with me and I quickly got the feeling that I was only wasting precious time by watching this show. I never felt any curiosity regarding why Cardia has this strange problem, since she was never introduced well enough for me to feel any sympathy for her.
