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 read more

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. If you haven't watched it yet, you are really missing out. St. Tail is your average, typical middle school girl, who secretly turns into Mysterious Kaitou (Thief) Saint Tail. This was such a sweet and amazing anime, i cried when it was over with...It was so good, i even considered asking Japan to make another series, like season 2, but I realize now that i am statisfied, even without season 2, i will enjoy St. Tail forever.

Okay I first would like to make clear that everything I say here is my own opinion and I will give my reasoning, a full fleshed review of three pages is not necessary. 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 read more

Kaitou Saint teeru is an anime not to be underestimated.. I watched this anime because in generally I am a huge fan of shoujo romance animes, aswell as oldschool ones.. and alltho I was kinda sceptical to the plot upon reading... I forgot about that pretty fast.
I will be writing a spoilerless review about the anime kaitou saint teeru.

Haneoka Meimi is a girl very much unlike any others. While she seemingly is like all other girls you can see, Nobody knows that in reality she is the mysterious phantom thief Saint Tail. Saint tail working for the sake of greater good and helps people toubled read more
