Kaito Kuroba is a seventeen-year-old high school student who is an adept magician due to the influence of his father, Toichi Kuroba who died mysteriously. Eight years after his father's death, Kaito discovers a secret room in his home that was set up by his father to reveal itself on that very day. Finding Kid the Phantom Thief's gadgets and costume in the room, Kaito dons the disguise and decides to confront Kid who has recently resurfaced after his eight years of absence. Kaito discovers Kid to be Konosuke Jii, his father's butler, who ascertains Toichi was the first Kid the Phantom Thief. Jii reveals he took on the role as Kid to lure out Toichi's murderer. Upon learning that his father was murdered, Kaito continues the role of Kid the Phantom Thief as he searches for his father's killer.

"The following review contains spoilers!" Best Phantom Thief anime of 2014!                                                                                                                            Magic Kaito 1412 is remake of Detective conan /case closed spin off tv special magic kaito. The Story: Kaitou kuroba a teenager who performs magic trick for fun at school and to mess with his friend Aoko nakamori.One day Kaitou kuroba stumbles through a trap door in his room and discovers that his father, Toichi Kuroba, was the original Kaitou Kid. Kaitou put on his father’s costume to discover the identity of the new Kaitou Kid,Turns out to be his father’s old assistant Konosuke Jii. Jii tells Kaitou that his father had been murdered eight years ago, and that he had dressed as the Kid to lure his father’s killer.So Kaitou becomes the Kid as he is more skilled and young than Jii.Kaitou finds out that killers are after a pandora gem and so he vow to find the Pandora gem first and destroy it. The Animation is the best part of the anime as they made alot of changes to visual to match today’s standards and modernizing outdated technologies in anime. here are some comparisons betweeen detective conan and magic kaito 1412. The Open theme is great and BGM fits the anime quite well. The Characters lack development as each episode repeats a pattern as a new gem is put in a exhibit or a royalty comes to japan with 1 or someone challenges kid -> then he goes to steal it -> police fail to catch him -> kid finds out that its not the pandora gem -> he returns it back to police. But still each character is fun with kaitou performing new tricks , inspector ginzo nakamori being fooled and the episodes with conan trying to stop kid. Overall the anime feels repetitive but with all new magic tricks and when conan comes to stop kaitou kid from stealing the gems,which are very entertaining to watch dectective vs phantom thief action. If you are looking for a magician+thief action anime this is for you :D and This is a must watch for detective conan fans.My Favorite Quote - Kaitou Kid : Ladies and gentlemen!,I bring you marvelous illusions that will make tonight sparkle! Just in case u don't know 1412 in the anime title Magic Kaito 1412 is read as kid. look the picture below u will understand.


Lets start with saying that it is more a entertaining series than actually a good series. You follow a thief while he steals juwels to avenge his father, who created the identety of The Phantom Thief and was the best magician in the world but has 'died' (you never know with magicians) 8 years before the series starts. This new Phantom Thief uses magic tricks and illusions to escape from the squad constructed to him.  Most of the episodes start with a bit of recorded advise from his father which he uses later in the episode, then you get a heist or a cute character moment (with Kaito being overpowered) and later he steals the jewel he wanted to steal. That is almost every episode in a nutshell. It would become boring to see the same story a few times over , you say?Actually not, it is not about that Kaito steals the juwel, but how he does it. He refers to himself as a showman or magician and makes every heist a extrodinairy preformance, for the officers, the onwatchers and the viewer. Which, together with his cheeky personality and his fear for fish is really fun to watch. So watch it if you want magic, cheeky kids and fun. The downside is that, like in Detective Conan, physics aren't quit aqurate, to say mildly...Kaito keeps about 2 or 3 under his standard clothes and somehow changes within half a second and he somehow he can walk on a rope with rolerskates. The cops who follow him are to obedient to there hot-headed leader who gets irrational when angry, which is something Kaito uses a lot. This inspector is by coincidance also the father of his best friend and he doesn't mind if Kaito comes to the prepperations of the securety (of the juwel he ancounced to steal). So definatly don't watch it if you want your science to be acurate. (But you are watching anime, the science is never acurate in anime, otherwise you'd be watching Sherlock Homes and not Detective Conan)
