    A really fun and action-filled adventure/romance story, Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne has amazing illustrations, but at times it falls flat when it comes to being really effective or emotional.

    5 SterneAls Teenager habe ich damals einige Manga verschlungen und die Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne Serie war und ist meine Lieblingsmanga-Serie. Ich weiß nicht wie oft ich sie damals gelesen, aber so wie ich mich kenne sehr sehr oft. ;)2018 habe ich mir deshalb vorgenommen die Reihe nochmals zu lesen, weils so schön war.Zu allererst einmal liebe ich die Story mit Marron als Reinkarnation von Jeanne d'Arc. Ich glaube der Manga und auch der Anime haben bei mir das Interesse an der echten Jeanne d'Arc geweckt. Ich bin zwar alles andere als gläubig, aber die Person Jeanne d'Arc fasziniert mich einfach.Da ich Animes und Mangas liebte bzw. liebe in denen junge Mädels gegen das Böse kämpfen (Sailor Moon oder Wedding Peach), war Jeanne natürlich auch ganz oben auf der Liste. Die Story aus Geschichte, Comedy, Freundschaft und Liebe ist einfach super.Arina Tanemura, die Schöpferin von Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, hat ein unglaubliches Talent. Ihre Figuren sind super gezeichnet und haben tolle Charaktereigenschaften.Band 1 ist der Anfang der Serie und gibt einen Überblick über Marrons Leben und ihre Doppelrolle als Kaito Jeanne. Wir lernen ihre beste Freundin Miyako kennen, ihren Engel Fynn, ihren Schulkameraden Minzuki und natürlich den Playboy Chiaki, der eigentlich gar kein richtiger Playboy ist. Am Anfang mochte ich Chiaki so gar nicht, was sich aber von Kapitel zu Kapitel änderte.Marron übt außerdem rhythmische Sportgymnastik aus!! Ich bin schon immer vorm turnen und der rhythmischen Sportgymnastik fasnziniert gewesen, vielleicht auch weil ich selber alles andere als sportlich bin. :DWenn ihr auf Shojo-Mangas steht und auf starke Mädels, die gegen das Böse kämpfen, dann ist Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne genau der richtige Manga für euch.

    I really liked the first volume of Full Moon O Sagashite, so I was pretty excited to read Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne. Sadly, it's just not up to the same standard. I understand that this is an earlier work, which explains so much. Like why the artwork, while pretty, isn't quite up to the quality of Full Moon. Or why I didn't find myself at all emotionally invested in the story. In the end, there was nothing that really made this stand apart from other books for me.

    No words. Just beautiful. Amazing series and an amazing fantastic life I'd love to live. Beautiful, awesome and unique draw style...I'd spend hours and hours contemplating one single page.Thank you, Tanemura. You're such an artist and my favourite mangaka.ACCESS, MARRY ME PLEASE.

    "Chiaki" MY HEART ALREADY CAN NOT TAKE THIS

    Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne ist für mich ein weiterer Einstieg in die Mangawelt und eine der schönsten Kindheitserinnerungen für mich. Diese siebenteilige Mangaserie wurde parallel zur TV-Serie Jeanne, die Kamikaze Diebin 2001 rausgebracht und weil ich diese Serie damals geliebt habe, erschien sie mir als passende Wahl um nach den Comics nun auch Mangas für mich zu entdecken.Es geht um ein junges Mädchen namens Maron. Sie lebt alleine und hat nur ihre beste Freundin Miyako. Vorallem aber hat sie ein Geheimnis. Sie fängt im Namen des Herrn Dämonen, die sich in schöne Gegenstände eingenistet haben und die Seelen der Besitzer für sich haben wollen. Die Kraft des kleinen Engels Fynn, ihre ständige Begleiterin, gibt ihr die Kraft sich in Jeanne zu verwandeln und besondere Kräfte zu entfalten, womit es ihr leicht fällt die dämonenbesetzten Gegenstände zu stehlen, was die Polizei - angeführt von Miyako - zur Verzweiflung treibt.Jeanne bleibt aber nicht lange alleine, denn ein anderer Dieb, der sich Sindbad nennt, fordert sie zu einem Spiel heraus.Weil ich die Serie sogar noch heute in und auswenig kenne, dachte ich, die Geschichte würde mich nicht überraschen. Der Plan war etwas neues zu entdecken (Mangas), aber durch etwas vertrautes (Jeanne) besser reinzukommen. Die Zeichnerin und Autorin Arina Tanemura hat mir aber einen kleinen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht und ein paar winzige Änderungen vorgenommen. Zum Beispiel die erste Begegnung mit Chaiki - dem neuen Nachbarn - wo Maron viel übertriebener reagiert, als ich die Geschichte kannte. Dadurch wurde auch die Freundschaft zwischen den beiden Mädchen ein kleines fitzelchen anders.Es war zwar immer noch die Geschichte von Jeanne, aber meine Aufmerksamkeit war auf höchster Stufe und ich habe Jeanne nochmal neu kennen gelernt.Die Entwicklung im Manga ist schneller als in der Serie und trotz so manch kleiner Umstellung hatte ich großen Spaß an Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne.Kindheitserinnerungen sind immer die schönsten und Jeanne war die beste davon! <3

    This was the first manga I ever read years ago and I like to read it once or twice every year, because it reminds me of my childhood. It's still as cute as ever and Arina Tanemuras drawings are still one of my favourites. :) On to the next one :) can't let chiaki and marron waiting.

    Review for complete seriesAlthough seemingly an ordinary girl, Maron lives a double life in which she goes out at night disguised as thief Jeanne to steal paintings. But Jeanne doesn't steal just any paintings - as the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, she only has her eyes set on paintings concealing demons sent by the devil. But it isn't long before the devil sends more than just demons to get in Jeanne's way - thief Sinbad isn't far to try and steal the paintings before she can.Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne was my first manga and therefore holds an unshakeable place in my heart. I remember the times I watched it on TV, not really knowing what manga or anime was, and just utterly falling in love with Jeanne's violet eyes. It was only by chance that I came across the manga in a bookstore - that was the beginning of my manga collection which now, a decade later, would put most libraries to shame. Of course, the biased and nostalgic me would say this is the greatest manga out there and it is absolutely flawless. Yet I also believe that there is no such thing as a flawless work. Reading it now is different from reading it ten years ago. But it is no less enjoyable. It stands out from other magical girl series in many ways!For one thing, Maron and Jeanne look completely different - it always irked me how most magical girls are never recognized by other characters despite the obvious. Unfortunately, Sinbad can't boast the same - but at least he's got a mask and is found out quite early in the story. The concept of Joan of Arc's reincarnation, the demon-infested paintings, and the character's motivations strike me as much more plausible. Tanemura's art style has always been a major point in her works - provided you like typical shoujo style. Fortunately, I've always liked the shoujo style and I think Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne is showing the author at her best. Although it isn't as refined as her later works, it has the most heart. The characters are adorable, believable and they feel. You can easily see Tanemura pouring her heart into this series while, in more recent ones, I always feel like she is just trying too hard.The same holds true for the comedy. The humour in her older works has always been a major plus point for me. It is often very simple - just in the expressions characters make. I could never decide what I liked most about this series; the humour, the art, the characters, the emotion. Not to mention that this series also draws a heavy focus on friendship and family. Even side characters get their moments to shine. Like any other serires, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne has its weak points and it won't be everyone's cup of tea. Yet I can't find it in my heart to point them out as I hold this series so dear, whatever flaws it holds now come to me as adorable absurdities.

    Such a fun story! I love the illustrations. It reminds me of Wish, which I also loved!! I like this edition far better than the Viz Media edition because it actually keeps the mangaka's notes in the margins and at the end!

    Time for another manga series. And yes, I have a lot, so be prepared.I'm reviewing the entire series here, hence some things hidden under spoiler tags since they technically spoil volume 1 (but not necessarily the whole series). Just a heads-up.I got into Arina Tanemura thanks to Full Moon o sagashite, and I wasn't sure I'd like everything else she'd done, so that's why it took me a while to get into her first major series: Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne. It took some getting used to since it turns the clock back regarding Tanemura's experience, which sometimes shows in the drawing style (not that she isn't good or anything in the beginning, but it's funny to see her style gradually change during the series. Maron's almost unbearingly cute in some of the final opening pages). On a long side note, the translation I have is a little... dated. Some attempts at localizing (Chiaki protesting he can't have a driver's license as he's under 16 (USA legal age), while I really doubt he's younger than Maron. Either way, it's 18 in Japan, which would make more sense), some attempts at keeping the Japanese aspects (they never seem to figure out when they want to use suffixes and when not), and I think they put Maron's year of birth at 1989 somewhere, though the story itself takes place around 1999, at least around the turn of the century. I also missed some word jokes like the 'medium rare/rare' one (what was that in Japanese, really?), but okay, I can live with that. I'll cut back on the brackets now... Anyway! One thing I really like about Tanemura's series is how it's never about the initial set-up. There's always something deeper - first of all to the characters, with pretty much every major one getting their own background and motivation. Secondly, the story as a whole. Though KKJ is still a love story and about a girl capturing demons, (view spoiler)[it also touches upon the notion of God and purity and human nature, which is pretty tricky/risky but handled pretty well, I think (better than the anime, judging by those few episodes I saw before tuning out). I'm not religious per say, so I didn't feel it was insulting to my own notions. I could see how it can be to christians, what with basically reinterpreting the Bible and the notion of heaven, God, reincarnation etc. So there's a warning if you feel sensitive about these things. Personally, I think any kind of religion is fine, as long as it's something you can find comfort in, if it's according to the letter of an already established religion or not. Anyway - the first time I read the final volume, it totally took me by surprise. The whole reasoning why Maron transforms into Jeanne in the first place is thrown upside down halfway through the series, and forces you to rethink. It's quite a mature series in its way. (hide spoiler)]I'm still not giving 5 stars, however (technically 4.5), (view spoiler)[ because I would have liked Maron to focus a bit more on herself as a person with strength of herself, rather than depend on Chiaki for said strength. Sure, it fits with the notions I mentioned before, so it makes sense. I feel a bit conflicted about it for that reason, since she does show she has her own strength, but still draws that power from being with Chiaki. Oh well, maybe I shouldn't overthink shoujo and accept that if I pick up romance, it's gonna be romance and needing that other person so very much all the way. (Five years ago I wouldn't have had any complaints about that whatsoever, I think.) Another point was the ending, which was a bit... convenient maybe, but again, it made sense in its own way (with Maron's parents, for example). And a convenient ending can be nice ever so often, right? (hide spoiler)]. So, technically 4.5 stars, but okay, goodreads says 4.

    My library has all seven of the CMX volumes of Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, so I decided to check them out. I'm not really a fan of Arina Tanemura, but with relatively short series, I thought I'd give this one a try.The first few volumes are fun, delving into the magical girls' genre with a fun twist that our heroine is the reincarnation of Joan of Arc. The characters and story are cliche, the art is standard Tanemura fare (bug eyes! urg...), but it's a fun diverting read. Then, midway through the series things get weird. My husband and I always get a kick out of seeing how Japanese try to incorporate Christianity into their stories and get everything backwards and just plain wrong. This series is a perfect example of twisting Christianity into some strange merge with Buddhism and whatever else. I couldn't make sense of it all while I was reading, but was so intrigued by how crazy the story got that I couldn't put it down. This definitely ranks up there as among one of the weirdest manga I've ever read. Just, wow. I also have a gripe with our heroine's reaction to being assaulted and the treatment by the author like it's no big deal. In fact, I have a lot of gripes about how our heroine is treated by most of the guys in the series. This was originally published in the late 1990's, so I think shojo manga has come quite a ways where we have stronger heroines. At least, I'd like to think so.

    Compared to the other volumes of in the series, and especially with other series byArina Tanemura, the first volume of Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne is a little sub-par. The story relies heavily on the usual magical girl cliches and tropes; the romance/love triangle between Miyako, Maron, and Chiaki is relatively uninteresting. Overall, there isn't much to make the story compelling or keep the reader emotionally invested; the one exception is the scene on the ferris wheel where Maron says that because her parents often fought, she didn't know what love was. This is the one scene that is both emotional and complex, offering intriguing character details about Maron as well as offering readers a connection to the story.Other than that, the romance between Chiaki and Maron feels too obvious; also, as a reader, how am I supposed to take seriously the fact that Maron doesn't know Chiaki is Sinbad? They look exactly the same. Doesn't she recognize his voice? Or his looks? Anything? That's too much for me to buy.In reading this, it reminded me a bit ofD.N.Angel; fans of that may also appreciate this. I love Tanemura's art and I know that future books feature more depth and a better plot; stick with the series. It gets better!

    By day, Kusakabe Maron is an ordinary high school girl with more then her share of problems. But by night, she is Phantom Thief Jeanne. As the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, her mission is to steal demon-possessed paintings and neutralize their evil. Jeanne's only ally is the angel-in-training Finn. Together, they must fight evil by night while surviving high school by day.Arina Tanemura has an art style that I really enjoy but that aside not all of her stories are gems. Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, while interesting to see Joan of Arc reincarnated it seems like there's a lot of things that did not really hit their mark. Some of this has to do with the how Tanemura treats some aspects of Christianity. There's nothing offensive but I think because a lot of Eastern mythos and thoughts treats demons differently that it affected some of the elements of the story. It's an interesting read if you have nothing else to do but some of the story can be a bit difficult to get through.

    The plot of this series is a very generic one. Other mangas have done this storyline much better than Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne did. The most obvious example being Sailor V/Moon. It's the magical girl off to save the world with a guardian to help her, she doesn't get along with a guy, but eventually she falls for him.The manga was so all over the place. The minor storylines of her attacking demons repeated themselves with absolutely no changes to them. The main character was irritating. There was no reason for the romance. It did nothing to add to the plot. It felt like a Sailor Moon copycat that didn't even get close to how intricately detailed and beautifully drawn Sailor Moon was. There's really no reason to continue this series.

    This has been my first manga in a really REALLY long time but I wanted to pick it up forever since this was my favorite anime when I was younger. I used to run to the TV when this was supposed to be on and shipped Maron and Chiaki so hard even before I even knew what shipping meant. We used to play Jeanne in our garden and I even handmade the Jeanne props at home just to be like her.Now that I made clear how much I loved this show it's gotta be pretty obvious that I loved going back into this world all over again.. and also with some more scenes that weren't in the show. Why I never picked this up sooner.. I don't know. But I'm glad I did now and I'm definitely gonna pick up the rest. I love these characters so much.AND THAT LAST PAGE HAD ME FANGIRLING ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    Maron Kusakabe, just your average high school girl living alone in an apartment across from her best friend, or so it seems!Maron is actually the reincarnation of Jeanne d'Arc, and she is the only one who can fight against the demons that are flourishing in the darkness of peoples' hearts and beautiful paintings. The demons' plan is to kill God by tainting every single living heart, thus taking away God's strength that he draws from the kindness in the world! It's up to Jeanne to exorcise the beautiful paintings that the demons take hold of, and to save the world- with only the help of little angel-in-training Finn!

    Definitiv meine allerliebste Reihe von Arina Tanemura. Die Story hat einfach alles, was ich liebe: Humor, Überraschungen, Gefühle, Tiefgang, Freundschaft, Liebe, Verantwortung, Fantasie. Und zudem definitiv mit die schönsten Zeichnungen, auch wenn das erst der Start von ihrer Karriere war.Marron ist ein ganz normales Teenagermädchen. Tagsüber jedenfalls. Doch nachts verwandelt sie sich in die Diebin Jeanne, die heimlich auf der Jagd der Dämonen ist, die sich in wertvollen Schätzen und Kunstgegenständen verstecken. Zunächst arbeitet sie mit dem Engel Fynn allein, doch bald bekommt sie einen Gegner: Sindbad. Steht er auf der Seite des Teufels?

    Pretty artwork, but a mess of plot and characters which are obviously lifted from other, mostly better manga (Codename wa Sailor V, Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, and Saint Tail being the most obvious). I did appreciate the lipservice to the idea that Jeanne can take care of herself, but in the end she's still very reliant on others. In the end, though, we've seen this plot a million times, and in order for it to be worth going through again, the story would have to have something truly original and enticing to draw the reader into it. No sign of that in the firsr volume, and I'm not going to waste my time with the rest.

    Sometimes going into random thrift shops is a fruitless effort. Sometimes you find an entire OOP series in perfect condition.*whisper*This is one the latter*/endwhisper*On a whole, this series is classic Tanemura. Things are never are they seem, your heart will break a half dozen times, but you can keep enough faith to see your babies make it through.Also I adore the fact that it's Jeanne and not Joan. Take that Anglicization! Now give us back Guillaume, keep your William. He's Norman! THEY SPOKE FRENCH. HOW DO YOU THINK THEY RUINE-FIXE-WHATEVERED YOUR LANGAUGE?

    I used to think Arina was a great author and great artist after reading full moon. But when I tried to read her other series as a kid I just tossed them aside annoyed and just bored. However when I looked back on this series and her others now that I'm older I've noticed something and realized why I wasn't enjoying any of her series other than full moon. So many of the characters are carbon copies of each other. She seems to reuse designs and plot points to the point the stories are so similar it feels like I'm reading the same one.

    maybe as the series progresses it will slow down and take some time to actually develop the characters or plot line a little.. at the moment this first volume just moved way to fast the story line was all over the place and by the end of the book I just kinda felt rushed. I've got the rest of the series waiting to be read so fingers crossed there is an improvement

    I thought it was ok, but no more. The author annoyed me with her little stories in the middle of each chapter. At some point I began to just skip them. Sometimes I couldn't understand the pictures enough to follow the context completely. I don't find my time wasted though. Nothing special to me.

    Typical magical girl story, with the God story behind.While the stealing pantings might sound interesting, I had a hard time reading it and Im very surprise how many people like this. I couldnt like any of the characters, specially the boy and the main girl friend...

    This is just one of my guilty pleasure reads. I watched the show way back in the day but never finished it. It's classic shoujo manga with a cliche script and costume changes haha. I still have yet to find the main character late for class with toast in her mouth.

    Hach, die gute alte Maron. Ist inzwischen echt verdammt lang her, dass ich den ersten Band gekauft hab, der sieht dementsprechend auch schlecht aus.Aber damals war noch alles schön. Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne war einer der ersten Mangas nach Sailor Moon. Zusammen mit Detektiv Conan und Inu Yasha. :DInzwischen bin ich (leider?) total aus diesem Genre rausgewachsen und diese übertriebene Mädchenhaftigkeit von allem, besonders dem Zeichenstil, regt mich eher auf.

    I started reading this series because I loved the imagery of a rhythmic gymnast who kicked ass, the idea of catching demons to make people happy, and the lonely heroin and her companion Fynn. I continued reading the series because of the heroin's take on life and the strange romance.By the end of the series this series took on a whole new meaning for me and it remains, in my opinion, the best manga for teenage girls of all time.

    i do have some issues with this series. the whole idea is that she is joan de'arc's reincarnated soul to seal paintings and seal demons. i guess i'm a little tired of people not understanding what being catholic means. saints don't get reincarnated, think of it as like reaching nirvana. it's the end of the line. christians really aren't suppose to buy into the whole reincanation thing to begin with though, but to put a saint like that bothered me.

    This rating and review is for the whole completed story. I remember back then, when I read this story in my last middle-school year, that it was the greatest shojo manga I've read, with thieves theme, fairy, and historical aspect of Jeanne D'Arc. But what actually amuse me was the twist thrown in the end of the story. I remember my more innocent past self exclaimed "What? How come?" and so I absorbed int his story fully. Ah, those good ole days.
