Magic Kaito (まじっく快斗) is a Japanese shonen manga series by Aoyama Gosho. It canonically crosses over with Detective Conan, and has had several anime specials and a 2014 anime series produced.

Canon Overview

Kuroba Kaito is a high school student who one day discovers that his deceased father, Kuroba Toichi, was not only the international phantom thief Kaitou Kid but was also murdered in what was thought to be a stage magic accident. In response, he takes on the role of the Kaitou Kid himself to bait out the killers, who turn out to be an organization who seek the immortality granting gemstone Pandora.


Due to the fact that Magic Kaito has crossed over with Aoyama's later series Detective Conan multiple times, the fandom is closely intertwined with the Detective Conan fandom. As a result, many fanworks feature characters and scenarios from both series, with one of the most common pairings being Kuroba Kaito/Kudou Shinichi.
