Saint Tail is a pretty cute series, with a magician/thief doing a Robin Hood act (stealing only to help others or to return stolen items to their rightful owners) with the help of her friend, a nun-in-training. I don't really have any complaints about the series (even the obviously flawed understanding of Catholicism is more earnestly oblivious than insulting) but I didn't feel attached enough to it to continue the series.

Wonderfully sweet and fluffy shoujo manga which quietly subverts and adds a lot to the genre. It's one of my favorites.

Meimi Haneoka is a normal girl in a Catholic school. But when night comes, she becomes the mysterious thief Saint Tail, who steals to right wrongs and stop criminals. But the classmate she has a small crush on, Asuka, is the son of a famous detective. He has vowed to do nothing else but stop her. But then the two of them start to play a dangerous game of challenging each other,

It's the unbelievable story of an elementary schooler who is the "Magical Theif Saint Tail." Her father is a magician and whose mother was once a master theif, so she gets it from her parents, definitely. She steals in the name of the church and returns things to their rightful owners. Think Robin Hood with a nun-in-training for a friend.

Fun characters, crazy heists... It's absolutely unbelievable, but if you can suspend your belief and go along for the ride, you'll love it. Definitely.
Baca buku ini kurang gregetnya, enggak kayak waktu pertama kali baca. Banyak banget bikin bertanya, "WHY?"
