Under the veil of the shining night, the mysterious phantom thief Joker performs daring heists on one valuable treasure to the next. Although often backed into a corner by persistent police investigator Dokusaburou Oniyama, the self-proclaimed "Miracle Maker" uses his arsenal of flashy tricks to escape, straddling the line between science and magic.

In the middle of a heist to steal the "Dragon Gem" from the mansion of a haughty multimillionaire, Joker meets Hachi, a clumsy but earnest ninja. Hachi is after the same treasure but idolizes Joker, who in return merely sees him as a nuisance. Still, the two are able to work together to perform a successful heist. Seeing Hachi's wit and courage, as well as his convenient ability to perform housework, Joker reluctantly accepts him as a disciple.

As they set off with their eyes set on the next prize, Joker and Hachi butt heads with other phantom thieves. Facing both old friends and new foes alike, Joker competes to become the best "magician" of the shining night.

Season 1 review. Let me start with QUEEN is really CUTE and PRETTY, and one of my most favorite anime girl ever. Her diamond eyes are so attractive and her design just sings cute cute and cute. In the first season, she don't debut until episode 8 if you waiting for her, and at the start she is filled with hatred because of Professor Clover, so no diamond eyes yet.

Since this is Season 1 review, I'll give an introduction to Kaitou Joker. It is the trollest anime I've ever seen and it is also a children's show. WOW, I did not know I'd be loving read more

Honestly, I freaking love this. Although others compare it to Magic kaito, it isn't the freaking same! Just because both are phantom thieves doesn't make them copy cat one another..
Kaitou joker is a thrilling, comedic relief, adventurous anime that will set you on your toes to cheer for Joker. Although this anime may not seem ideal for those who are looking for a more "mature and serious" atmosphere, the anime does have its serious moments. Joker is a magician who has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, from balloon gums to flashing cards and joker's funny disguises, there are even times where he read more

I've found this anime by random chance, and got attracted to it due to its art style, that it is kinda good for the target audience, kids.

The story on show is episodic, but vaguely connected as the plot advances to expand on the characters. The structure on the episodes it's usually that the main characters plan a heist, announce it into advance and then execute.

The way the heist is realized is usually with disguises, dispositives and gadgets, but it always amuse the viewer. The humour/comedy is the kind of thing that works for kid shows, like the sidekick getting mad at the protagonist because he read more

Joker is about said Phantom thief who travels the globe in search for treasure to steal, but he always sends an advanced notice so it's fair challenge between him and the current owner of the treasure.(it's still stealing though). What I like about joker is that this is an episodic anime, anime usually has story progression in every episode unless it's has filler or is poorly written but this series is like an action cartoon like Miraculous Ladybug or Danny Phantom where there are stand alone adventures but They also have episodes with story progression. It's a nice change of pace considering it's anime. I read more
