Kaito Kuroba, a normal teenage student whose father is often absent for vaguely defined reasons. When his father dies under mysterious circumstances, he is made aware of his father's secret identity; a famous international criminal known as International Criminal 1412: the Phantom Thief, and that he was murdered by a mysterious organization for refusing to aid them in retrieving the "Pandora Gem"; a mystical stone said to shed a "tear" during the passing of a particular comet, the consumption of which bestows immortality. He vows to prevent the organization from gaining immortality, and assumes his father's identity as he begins his quest for the gem. His only clues as to the gem's location are that it glows red under the full moon and that it is a doublet: a gem hidden within a larger gem. Thus, it would have to be a relatively large one with a bizarre history, and always stored in a place that never receives moonlight. He thus researches and steals famous priceless gems with odd histories from incredibly well-defended areas, and always returns them after the very next full moon.

This anime special is an excellent addition to the Detective Conan universe. As a fan of Detective Conan, I enjoyed this in-depth look into the workings of Kaito Kid. It really explains, sort of, why he is the way he is and the reasons for him choosing this path. Unfortunately only one episode has been released so I can't say if the story will be as engaging as Detective Conan, but it looks promising.
The artwork is excellent, in my opinion, and the characters are promising if you haven't already read the manga. I feel any Detective Conan fan will really enjoy this expansion should it read more

It's a work of art!

There's a reason why this Ova has a higher rating than the original series. Detective Conan is great but it lacks the flair that only KAITOU KID can do. DC is based on murders and crimes but this OVA is more on the background of our favorite thief. We get to know the makings of KAITOU.

Story 9/10

It's beautiful, it's intriguing and it leaves you laughing or awing. The story of a Thief who hunts down the truth. It's simple but his life is complicated. Just like a roller coaster (watch it and you'll be drawn in)

Art 9/10

It was a great change read more

Kaito Kid revolutionized the art of theft. He steals priceless gems in front of the police’s face like a magic show. The police hate him, but the people love him. He is glamorous in his ways of stealing. Brilliant entrance! Brilliant escape! The police aren’t dumb, but they get played like fools by Kaito Kid. Kaito Kid is the magician of the sky. Watch Magic Kaito and see what a great thief is like.

Both series are about master thieves & their attempts to steal high-value targets. 
Both are about a phantom thief stealing things while being hunted by the police. The main characters act a little similar during the heist but their motives are a bit different. In both, however, the life as a thief runs in their family.
Both shows involve romance but it's more of a subplot in Magic Kaito and plays a more important role in D.N.Angel. They have supernatural elements as well, though more so in D.N.Angel.
D.N.Angel is a bit darker while Magic Kaitou tries to be more comic.
