Synopsis

It's nearly the end of the century, and one girl has been breaking the news: Kaitou Jeanne, a phantom thief supposedly sent by God, has been stealing paintings all around the city. Her real identity is Maron Kusakabe, a 16-year-old rhythmic gymnastics enthusiast and student at Momokuri Academy— something unknown to all, even her best friend Miyako Toudaiji, who is in charge of the police chase for Jeanne.

Hidden inside the paintings Maron steals are demons sent by the demon lord, who plans to weaken God's power by having his minions possess human hearts. Assisted by the minor angel Finn Fish, it is up to Maron as the reincarnation of Jeanne d'Arc to assume her alter ego, hunt down the cursed paintings, and seal the vile demons away. However, the tough job of balancing this duty with her lonesome high school life only proves more challenging when a mysterious new phantom thief makes his appearance—Kaitou Sinbad.

So, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne? To be honest, i adored this manga, and I reckon it was a LOT better than the anime; concidering the plot was slightly different, I preffered the manga's plot.

The story itself had me flowing tears the last couple of chapters, and I adored the "happy ending" {although... it... I dont know... it wasnt really THAT good an ending... if you only read until the last battle is finished... but I still adored it to bits}. I reckon it had a pretty unique, but not overly original, plot which a lot of people would enjoy ^^ Put probly girls more than boys... ...

Mixed Feelings
Art: The art is very nice.
I like Arina Tanemuras style.
The cuteness of it.

Story: The story is okay. Not too good. I think I liked it more at a younger age than now when I am older. Some cute moments here and there.
The story in itself ain't the best.

Characters: I'm loving Fin and Access alot. Mostly Access. He is just too adorable. Can I keep him for myself? I like when the main characters are transformed.

It's worth reading if you like Arina Tanemura's art style.

I remember liking this more when I was a teenager. I liked the idea of Jeanne d'Arc reincarnated into modern times. Perhaps, I'm being nitpicky, but I feel like there was not enough research done on the subject before the author created this.

The manga has little to do with Jeanne d'Arc itself. The premise would have worked better had the reincarnation plot thread been removed and a fictitious reincarnation been used in place. Maron has no connection with Jeanne other than simply being her reincarnation, the history is downright atrocious, and once actually borders on offensive (I'll get to that later).

Chiaki is not a likable ...
