Meimi Haneoka, 14, is a normal girl during the daytime, but during the night, she assumes the "position" of Saint Tail, a modern-day Robin Hood who steals from thieves and gives items back to their original owners. She is aided by her friend, Seira Mimori, a nun-in-training, and she is chased by her classmate (and soon-to-be love interest), Daiki Asuka (often called "Asuka Jr.").

If you\'re looking for a good cops and robbers / cat and mouse anime like Lupin the 3rd, keep looking - because even though this series is about a thief and a detective trying to catch her, the robberies aren\'t really what you will watch out for. In fact, I would describe Saint Tail as a love story or romance anime extended over 43 episodes. The thefts are merely a backdrop to the developing romance between Meimi Haneoka and Asuka Jr.

Meimi, of course, is Saint Tail and the young detective trying to catch her is her classmate Asuka Jr. You\'ll have to suspend your disbelief ...

Saint Tail is incrediby similar to Kaitou Jeanne, but i'd prefer St. Tail better. St. Tail was so cute, this type of romance is hard to find nowadays.

Those of you who are thinking of passing this anime by as a bad graphical oldie I suggest you give the first few episodes a watch this show while the art is fairly average for its time it uses color and the magic tricks as a backdrop for Saint Tail's capers and the use of illusions really males up for much of the lack of sophisticated graphics. Art is a 7 ...
