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.

Dude if I could have half the flair this boy has, I'd be living the good life.

Lupin may have walked so Kaito could run, but man is this boy RUNNING. It's no wonder he's become one of the most popular characters in the Detective Conan universe.

This set of OVAs covers different chapters in the Magic Kaito manga with some pretty spectacular animation at certain times. There's at least one scene that always sticks with me as one of the best instances of overchoreography done right. Some minor details may be changed from the manga, but it usually gives the plot some more pizazz or ...

Mixed Feelings
Overall: 6.85 / 10


We are before the first of the 2 animations that the great Kaito Kid received and in this case the work is by the TSM studio and that was carried out between 2010 and 2012 in a "Special" format, But First of all there is to clarify that we start from the base that this is a work with a lot of "fantasy" in between, and I do not see it reasonable to start falling with a lot of meaningless scenes where no type of "physical" logic is applied and take it from a strictly analytical role.
