Rough, but Sincere   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

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.

Once you got past the first ten chapters or so. The flow really improves, whereas at first every page was really busy with unnecessary stuff. After that, though, it evolved into a nice, light shoujo romance. D'awwww.

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.

Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne does not offer anything new for the mahou-shoujo genre. It is obviously affected by Sailor Moon. Maron's design as Jeanne looks like Usagi, the mysterious guy that is her rival but he also help her and he is her romantic interest is also like Tuxedo Mask and the two main eternal enemies. What is original though is, that the author decided to use a historical figure serving as the reincarnation of the main character and the religious elements. I liked that.

Other than that, quite cliche; Both story and characters.

I found all of the characters stupid. Maron is just your very typical shoujo-manga girl where she can't stop thinking of her romantic interest and where she will do something silly. Her romantic interest is the typical again shoujo-guy, where is mysterious and he pick on her. Oh yes and Maron has a best friend that is also doing silly things.

The artwork is pretty but Arina Tanemura is making the characters eyes extremely huge.

It was an okay read, I guess. Check it out only if you are a mahou-shoujo fan.

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

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.

I first read this series almost 5 years ago, and I totally loved it. I am a devoted fan of shoujo manga because of this. So after rereading it recently, I have to admit my judgement is partially based on nostalgia. There's a lot of "typical" shoujo stuff in here... but I really do think Tanemura-sensei's plot and story were very well thought-out and intriguing for this series. (I can't comment on how it compares to her other series—I started reading Full Moon at one point but lost interest, and I haven't tried any of her other series since then). Most of the characters are also admirable and interesting. The art is pretty flowery (and mega-huge eyes, my goodness) but it's a lot of fun if you don't mind that sort of thing. Tanemura has a pretty cool fashion sense.

Also, Chiaki is soooo cool. biggrin
