For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!
Both D.N.Angel and Magic Kaito present the premise that the best thieves are indeed magical. Even if D.N.Angel takes this a bit more literally. Both anime say that thievery is more or less in a family's blood. Also, those 'romantic childhood friend' vibes you get from Magic Kaito is more greatly detailed in D.N.Angel, where one of the main focuses is how Daisuke and his alter-ego Dark are caught in one body, while in love with two different girls. The art for Magic Kaito is sharper and clearer, but is shorter, featuring only one episode rather than D.N.Angel's 26. Despite these differences, they both have similar types of humor, and the character's personalities are unique. At the very least: worthy of your time.
they are both the same bunch of thivies stealing precious object both let nothing stop them as they announcing the object they are going to steal and steal it right under the police's nose

Both anime focus on one thing: family. From stealing works of art to precious diamonds - both centralize around the fact that thievery does in fact bring people closer together: as cheesy and ironic as that sounds. Whether that means you're getting closer to your dead father or a rag-tag group of bandits, the fact remains that putting your neck out with/in memory of someone brings you together whether you like it or not. Because of this, both anime give off the same sort of "We're in this together" feel...
And for both: You keep wanting more!
