Magic is not real—everyone knows that. When performed by a true expert, however, magic possesses the ability to amaze and wonder its audience. Kaito Kuroba, son of world-famous stage magician Touichi Kuroba, is no stranger to this fact. Well-versed in the arts of deception and misdirection, Kaito frequently disrupts the lives of those around him with flashy tricks and pranks. But when Kaito accidentally stumbles upon a hidden passage in his home, he discovers a secret that may well have been the cause of his father's death eight years ago—the dove-white outfit of Kid the Phantom Thief. Wanting to find out more about his father, Kaito dons the outfit and searches for the Pandora Gem that is said to grant immortality. However, he is not the only one after the gem—the organization responsible for his father's death is also hot on his tail!
Magic Kaito follows the rebirth of Kaitou Kid, phantom thief of the night. Utilizing his dummies, disguises, and signature card gun, Kaito sets out to steal the world's most precious jewels, uncovering the truth behind his father's death and the rumored Pandora Gem along the way.
Kaito Kid revolutionized the art of theft. He steals priceless gems in front of the police’s face like a magic show. The police hate him, but the people love him. He is glamorous in his ways of stealing. Brilliant entrance! Brilliant escape! The police aren’t dumb, but they get played like fools by Kaito Kid. Kaito Kid is the magician of the sky. Watch Magic Kaito and see what a great thief is like.
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
continue, which I hope it does. It really does open up a new direction for everyone to enjoy.
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.
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)
It was a great change
from DC original animation. A lot flashier and smoother. I say that it fits the show well. The only thing that bugs me was that how much they resemble Shinchi and Ran but they are quite different. Just recognize that Kaito and Aoko have spiky hair while the DC leads have straight hair.
The soundtracks were great and matched each moment well. Nothing more to say here.
This is the gem of the show. The characters like DC were well made and covered almost everything. For an OVA, it brings out their personality well. Kaito with his Kookiness and magic while Aoko is always supporting her father and etc. I got attached to the cast quickly and you can't hate them at all. Every character has a part in the story.
I enjoyed it greatly.
Go watch DC first then go to Magic Kaito. I mean DC has Kaito too but then Magic Kaito gives us a glimpse of his life
Birthdays are something we all look forward to. We get to throw a party, invite our friends, receive gifts and stuff ourselves full of delicious cake. Let's see what anime characters get up to on their birthdays.
