like a nice cup of hot cocoa.
it might sting, but when you taste it,
it warms your heart.

Just like some of the other works by Tanemura-sama, it built up from a sort've bore to an interesting climax. What I mean is, it was light and nice, but built up to more depth.

This is definitely a great manga. Sort of typical Shoujo-ish, but it's amazing all the same. It's a awesome plotline, and I did quite like the art style.
I'd probably give it a 9, but I've given it a ten because it the end part with Access and Fin reborn was really too sweet!! And the Zen-kun part too!!

Interesting Twists   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

It's very cliched at the beginning. It has most of the cliches of Kaitou-manga (where the main character's friend and/or classmate is trying to catch them, ect) and also slips into the magical girl category, where everything is a cliche in itself. The first time I read it, I only made it through a chapter and a half because of this.

However, I recently decided to give it a chance, and once I actually got into it, it was good. The cliches do not hinder the story as much as they seem to dominate it in the first chapter or two, and once you get past them it's very enjoyable. You do not have to drag through too many chapters for development to happen and there is not chapter after chapter of the same thing.

What makes the story is the twists. The (cliched) characters all have proper motivations and deeper personalities. Unexpected revelations between characters make it very interesting as you reach the end. The end itself was satisfying.

Overall, it would really depend on your tastes. If you really hate cliches, you decide if you feel like sticking around until it starts to dig deeper.

I got this when I was only in second grade. I was amazed by the beautiful art and intriguing storyline. Everyone else just wanted to see "the smart girl's weird backwards comic book", but I loved the story for what it was. This got me started on becoming a mangaka. Thank you, Tanemura-sensei. Thank you, Maron-chan. And thank you most of all, Zen-kun, for opening my heart and letting me cry for you and all those who cannot live as long as they want to...

I love this, it was a great break from most other magical girl stories smile
I love the idea that the main characters a thief, and most people don't see her as the good guy. It's a nice change for once.
And I'm a huge Arina Tanemura fan, and this is definitely one of her best, if not her best in my opinion.
I would recommended this to anyone smile

Compared to the Episodes it seems it was big time rushed...It good but in the first couple chapters equal basically half the damn episodes...I love it too but she wasnt like that in the episodes and the grandfather and the police wasnt either. But it was a awesome story!

Rough, but Sincere

Art: This story is clearly one of Arina's early works. This is most obvious with character and costume design - the faces are much too angular, especially in the early volumes. She does get shading and dynamic layouts very right, I have to give her props for that.

Themes: We've got a tricky situation on our hands. The story uses Christian elements in ways that may be seen as misguided or offensive, and students of history may be put off by the representation of Joan of Arc as a magical girl. I found myself cringing multiples times for these reasons but… There is a sincerity and thoughtfulness even in these inaccurate interpretations. You get the sense that Arina has respect for the Christian interpretation of God, and may have been working out her own feelings in the story.

Story: We've got a magical girl/phantom thief/supernatural romance story here that can be very corny in the more episodic chapters (I found myself only skimming those). The romance is alright… Chiaki is a little too grabby for my taste, but I have to give Maron props for acknowledging her feelings while still standing up for herself with dignity (most of the time). In the end, as I alluded to above, I think Arina's goal was to try and inspire her readership with themes of selfless love: whether it be between God and Man, Man and Woman, or two friends. It lacks polish, but for a rough work I find it well meaning and sweet, misguided though it may be.
