Magic Kaito 1412
I believe that there are two versions of this show airing this season. You have the other version, an annoying and boring version for little children, and this one, supposedly for teens and older. I can’t see it though. I just see two shows made for children. One of them is just ridiculous and the other is watchable.
I’ll get straight to the point; I am not loving the artwork so far. The characters’ eyes just look weird and their expressions at times just look dreadful. It is kind of dragging the rest of it down, because this could be quite the nice-looking piece.
The story isn’t all that bad. I have no problems watching a show about illusions and trickery (or magic as some people call it). Especially if the protagonist’s life would be endangered because the people that went after his father are now coming after him for stepping into his footsteps.
So yeah, I am probably going to give this a fair chance. I suggest you do the same thing. You may not want to watch this if you dislike childish anime, but this promises to be a little different than that. We’ll just have to wait and see.
