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.

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 ...

Season 1 review. Let me start with QUEEN's 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 one great troll anime I've ever seen and it is also a children's show. WOW, I did not know I'd be loving it that much! Things get deadly, even braver than Magic Kaito. There's a really ...

Mixed Feelings
This review kind of includes SPOILERS.

Kaitou Joker is a good anime in my opinion but why I'm rating this a 6 is the story doesn't make sense in season 1&2 and about 3/4 of the series is a filler episode.

Also Joker freakin is a time traveler, although they don't mention he's a time traveler but in the whole series about 1/4 of the tricks aren't even tricks and just prediction/already knowing whats happening. Just watch episode 52 on crunchyroll and you'll know what I'm talking about.

I've got the manga of Kaitou joker and the story and tricks are sooo BAD the tricks are so ...
