Kaitou Saint teeru is an anime not to be underestimated.. I watched this anime because in generally I am a huge fan of shoujo romance animes, aswell as oldschool ones.. and alltho I was kinda sceptical to the plot upon reading... I forgot about that pretty fast.

I will be writing a spoilerless review about the anime kaitou saint teeru.

Haneoka Meimi is a girl very much unlike any others. While she seemingly is like all other girls you can see, Nobody knows that in reality she is the mysterious phantom thief Saint Tail. Saint tail working for the sake of greater good and helps people toubled by stealing or using illegal means for helping... she is also being chased by the police. Among the police force you'll find Asuka jr, a boy with a sincere wish of catching saint tail, thus proving to himself he would make a great cop in the future.. Due to his father he is there for every mission with the police force, but soon Asuka finds himself falling for both Meimi and St. tail. As kaitou saint teeru unfolds, you will find yourself laughing, crying, and absolutely completely adoring it. its not boring for a second, it makes you want to keep watching.. and the plot is more wide than what it seems to begin with originally upon watching....

This anime has it all. An enjoyable soundtrack, great character developments and surprise elements.. Kaitou saint teeru is an anime I would recommend to people generally fond of shoujo and magical girls animes, romance and oldschool animes. Give it a chance, watch it.. surely you will adore it. This anime only gets better as you go on, and the graphics are amazing as this is an anime from 1995. I truly will say, this is one of my alltime favorite animes.. While in overall this is a magical girl anime, it contains in overall no magic powers, moreover magician powers. Haneoka's parents are both magicians and they've tought Meimi what they know of magic making her able to use magic using her hat or cards\her staff ingame... By this, I feel like they in overall kinda made a somewhat realistic twist to the anime, not making it all magical girl styled.

Watch it, you will not regret it.. This anime has top ratings for everything from me. I completed this anime about a year ago, and it hasn't left my mind for a secound ever since.. I've rewatched it so many times I kinda lost count, and yet.. It was worth every minute watching it.
