Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Magic Kaito is a five-volume, thirty-six file manga series starring Kaito Kuroba, an Ordinary High-School Student. He has a pretty sweet life: a small but nice house, a loving mother, and a childhood friend in Aoko Nakamori, whose father just happens to be a respected Inspector at Ekoda's Division Three. He's also incredibly smart, athletic and has fast fingers.Everything's perfectly fine, until one day when he finds out about a recent resurgence by a local villain, a mysterious Phantom Thief clothed in white and famous for his signature cape, hat and monocle who specializes in using stage magic and street magic to steal his targets. Feeling challenged, he decides to find out all he can about the man.That's when he stumbles upon the secret room in his house filled with props and innumerable pieces of junk. And also a white tux, a cape, a top hat and a monocle. Alarmed by the discovery of a veritable Bat Cave in his own home, young Kaito suits up as best he can and heads out to ask some questions. Turns out that the guy currently running around is not only an old friend of the family, but Kaito's dead father was the original Phantom Thief - until one day he was brutally killed in an 'accidental' explosion on stage. The old friend of the family, Jii, is under the impression something incredibly funny happened, and not anything particularly ha-ha funny either.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Well, turns out he's right, and now the only way to find out what happened is to lure the killers out into the open the only way Kaito knows how: by taking up his father's mantle and becoming the new Phantom Thief.His new name? Kaitou Kid.Sound familiar? It should. The Kaitou Kid also happens to be one of the most popular characters of Detective Conan - the infinitely more famous detective show by the same mangaka, Gosho Aoyama. The two series are set in the same 'verse, and since Magic Kaito volumes stopped being produced, you can thank Canon Welding for his continuing existence and that of his peers.A twenty-four episode adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures debuted during the Fall 2014 Season, which sees some technological upgrades (for instance, Kaito reads media coverage of his exploits on a smartphone and converses with his mother over Skype).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })

Secret Identity: Only Kaito, Jii and his mother Chikage are meant to know that Kaito's the Kid. Hakuba and Akako know, too, but Kaito will always deny it when they mention that fact to him, even if his excuses might sound like Blatant Lies at times.

Indeed. The first and second volumes of the series show Gosho's style was much more cartoonier and, in some ways, sloppier: lanky bodies, thinly inked lines, and abuse of screentones. His style got more proportioned, refined and cleaner as time went on.

Brainwashed and Crazy: Inspector Nakamori when Akako puts a magic necklace on him that sends him into snarling shoot-everything mode. (She apparently forgets about it, and it's still on at the end of the chapter.) The 1412 anime takes care of that, as Aoko breaks the necklace when she gives her dad an Armor-Piercing Slap at the end of the story.

Calling Card: Kaito always sends a letter ahead to let the police know what he's going after in the form of a riddle. If nothing else it means that he finds out quickly when someone is planning on framing him for something, and can take steps to properly humiliate them.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Magic Kaito (Manga) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Compared to the series' Spiritual Successor, which takes place in the same universe, Magic Kaito contains a lot more fantastic elements (such as a Ridiculously Human Robot and actual witchcraft) than the more down-to-earth and naturalistic Detective Conan. Kaito's characterization in particular has changed a lot over time: fans of his suave and generally non-violent characterization in Detective Conan are usually shocked at how much of an impulsive, mistake-ridden, and sometimes violent person Kaito is for much of the earlier manga chapters. The change is likely due to Aoyama continuing to tweak and reimagine the character during the years-long hiatus Magic Kaito went on; it's notable that as Aoyama Canon Welded the two sibling franchises, Magic Kaito chapters became a lot more similar to Detective Conan in stakes and tone.

Crazy-Prepared: In chapter 31 Kaito is mentioned to have multiple plans in place for his current heist, all lettered. He also knocked out a random police officer and disguised as him, then disguised as himself on top of the police officer disguise, just in case. Heck, he crazy glued the officer disguise in place in case Nakamori pinched him. It came in handy.

But Not Too Foreign: Hakuba might seem like a pompous Brit (and is even introduced with the Union Flag), but he's only half-English. This is pointed out during his first appearance when, despite being one of the most well known detectives in England, he's also shown to be the son of the highest-ranking police officer in Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan's Superintendent General).

Betty and Veronica: Or something like that. For Aoko, she could pick either Kaito or Hakuba, although everybody knows how this one goes in Gosho's work. However, both can be pretty arsy.

Hired to Hunt Yourself: In an attempt to catch KID, inspector Nakamori asks Kaito to help him by using his knowledge of magic tricks. Of course, to keep it interesting, a second thief is after the McGuffin of the week.

Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?
 Magic Kaito (Manga) / int_9723e2cd
comment
Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?: A valid question. Kid in early Magic Kaito chapters uses multiple rocket-powered vehicles, including a scooter that can ride down the side of a building. What stuff does Kaito make, and what's been lying around the KID Cave / fancy-den-behind-a-painting for eight years? It's not unreasonable that Toichi (and maybe his largely unknown secondary cast) could have set it all up, but the only gadget we know for sure he used is the hang-glider cape, and Kaito had the card gun before learning about Kid. The 1412 anime tries to answer this question in the second episode - Jii supplies Kaito with the gadgets, and a shot of a yellow Volkswagen Beetle pulling away from outside of the Blue Parrot heavily implies that he obtains them from Kudou Shin'ichi's neighbour Professor Agasa. In chapter 34, Kaito mentioned that Jii's professor friend fixed up his motorbike after it turned into ashes, it might possibly be the same one as mentioned in the 1412 anime. Also, in Detective Conan, Professor Agasa mentions in one chapter he lent his Volkswagen Beetle to his bartender friend, heavily hinted to be Jii and furthering the connection.

MacGuffin: See Green Rocks. Also, any piece of artwork Kaito is aiming to steal will usually become one, considering said object will little have any effect on the plot (except that one time the MacGuffin was a statue).

Oh, Crap!: Basically Kaito's expression when Aoko tosses away his hat when he's currently Kaitou KID, and found out his identity, he was even sweating a lot. Though Aoko thinks Kaitou Kid disguised himself as Kaito in chapter 35, so he's safe, for now.

Goofy Print Underwear: In one chapter, Kaito flips up Aoko's skirt and recoils in horror - Aoko, knowing that he often does this to her, had put on panties with a fish print! (Kaito is mortally afraid of fish for reasons that were never explained).

Cerebus Syndrome
 Magic Kaito (Manga) / int_cfdb9e17
comment
Cerebus Syndrome: As mentioned above. It's a rather unorthodox case in that it didn't develop this until after it hit an irregular publishing schedule; the first dozen or so chapters (comprising the first two volumes) ran monthly throughout 1987 and 1988, and featured virtually no "serious" elements (unless one counts Akako's introduction). After that, the manga largely went on hiatus (with the occasional story released every few years), as Aoyama was busy working on Yaiba and later Detective Conan. For the record: Hakuba's introductory chapter came in 1990, while Snake and Pandora weren't established until 1993.

Eureka Moment: In one chapter, Kaito figures out how a street magician got a parliamentary pin after a kidnapper claiming to be the Kaitou Kid took the Japanese Prime Minister, when Aoko tells him the key to beating the boss of their video game is to defeat the king controlling him first.

Stage Magician: Kaito's father was one and Kaito is pretty much practicing to become one. Also the Hopper Magician Troupe in "Red Tear", who are rather good, and, aspiring...the Prime Minister. Who's atrocious.

Art Evolution: This manga's early artwork can be very jarring if you've dropped by from reading any volume of Detective Conan, or even from the Shounen Sunday specials. Indeed. The first and second volumes of the series show Gosho's style was much more cartoonier and, in some ways, sloppier: lanky bodies, thinly inked lines, and abuse of screentones. His style got more proportioned, refined and cleaner as time went on.
