D.N.Angel, Magic Kaito 1412 Recommendations
Both anime are about a legendary thief who took upon themselves their predecessors identity.
Both main characters steal valuables for different purpose (D.N..Angel: to prevent a fearfull event | Magic Kaito 1412: to learn the truth about his father death, and both have a childhood friend with them.
D.N.Angel is more supernatural and shoujo since the MC can actually transform into another being and the reaction is based on romance, while Magic Kaito 1412 is more about finding the real reason for his father murder and foil the organisation plans.
Both are about a phantom thief stealing things while being hunted by the police. The main characters act a little similar during the heist but their motives are a bit different. In both, however, the life as a thief runs in their family.
Both shows involve romance but it's more of a subplot in Magic Kaito and plays a more important role in D.N.Angel. They have supernatural elements as well, though more so in D.N.Angel.
D.N.Angel is a bit darker while Magic Kaitou tries to be more comic.
D.N.Angel is about a infamous thief to stop mysterious events from happening
Magic Kaito1412 is about an infamous thief to find about his dads death and stop a bad organization
D.N.Angel more "dark" and Magic Kaito more on the fun side

Both have police involved
- Both animes are about a school boy, who gains an alter-ego as a phantom thief.
- Both main characters have been trained in the skills necessary for their thievery by their parents and both have a love triangle going on between the main, a girl he likes and his alter-ego (with the girl being completely ignorant of the main and the thief being one and the same, of course.)
- These two series share a very similar atmosphere. That's why I think it's safe to say that, if you enjoyed one, you're likely to enjoy the other.
