Episode 1: Magic Kaito: Kid the Phantom Thief

Summary: The mysterious thief, Kaitou Kid, returns! The next morning, gossip of Kid follows Kuroba Kaito into classroom. After pranking his childhood friend, Nakamori Aoko, she retaliates and compares Kaito’s magic to Kid’s. This provokes Kaito into challenging Kid, and he leaves school to begin planning.

Meanwhile, Nakamori Ginzo, the Divison 2 Inspector, ignores a murder case in the face of Kid’s return. Both he and Kaito (who is now at home) watch as Kid’s heist note is reported on the news. Kaito recalls his father, Kuroba Toichi, fondly and thinks of Toichi’s “Poker Face” lesson. Placing his hand on his father’s portrait, Kaito is surprised when it moves and sends him tripping into a secret room, while the portrait twirls to reveal a portrait of Kaitou Kid.

In the meantime, Aoko meets with Kaito’s mother, Kuroba Chikage, begging for a way to get revenge for the prior prank. Chikage, despite being a little distracted by the noise “that room” made, tells Aoko about Kaito’s one true weakness. Within the secret room, Kaito discovers a cassette tape that Toichi set up, but it’s too mangled to play properly. A top hat and a cape drift behind him, and he decides to confront Kid in order to unveil his father’s last magic trick.

At the heist location, Nakamori-keibu, the police, a masked Kid, and a dressed up Kaito count down the seconds until the heist begins. The power is cut, the gem is stolen, and Kid escapes out of a window. While the police try to figure out where he went, Kaito shocks Kid by revealing himself on the rooftop. As a distraction, Kid turns his body invisible, but Kaito shatters the trick once Kid leaps at him.
