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,

Well, it took me forever but I was finally able to get all the seven volumes of this series. I used to love the anime when I was a kid, even if the Italian broadcaster butchered the story, splitting Seria into two identical twins because they feared that knowing that a little girl could be a nun would be very, very dangerous to little Italian minds.


Maybe I'm a bit too old for this story. I like the fluffiness of it and I like the art. But it's really a childish story.

The two bonus stor

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.
