Synopsis

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

Recommendations

These two anime are written by the same person and take place in the same universe. Detective Conan is technically a spin-off of Magic Kaito, but has upwards of 600 episodes while Magic Kaito has 5 (so far). Kaito Kid makes frequent appearances in Detective Conan, only one of which are shared between the two series (this so far is only in the Magic Kaito manga, as the anime has not yet reached that point).
Although the genres are totally different, but both of them talk about a thief, a phantom thief who challenge the police..Both of them are different when it comes to the characters and that but if you like the idea of a "Phantom Thief" you will like this
