Riku and Risa are twins, and Dark and Daisuke are two halves of the same person, and they have this crazy love square going on (not in a bad way, I promise)...it's great! I love that Riku makes Dark change and Risa makes Daisuke change. Side note, I forgot how much Risa pissed me off. She's so shallow and superficial! It drove me crazy. If you enjoy manga and love shoujo, I highly suggest this one! The series is AMAZING, and it gets better as it goes on. Plus it has some of the best art I've ever seen in a manga.

    Wow. Found this series on my shelf and decided to read it again. Maybe my tastes have grown a bit since I last read it, but I don't like it nearly as much as I once did. I find the characters a little whiny. What I once thought was fast-paced now seems poorly paced. Overall, it doesn't seem as good now than it was when I first got it... Maybe my fondness actually stems from later volumes, rather than the first. Wow. Found this series on my shelf and decided to read it again.

    I decided after a long debate with myself that I was going to add all the mangas that I read but to compensate the idea of not adding them all, I will only add the first volumes of the ones I finished reading. I'm actually still reading this. This is my third attempt or my fourth or my thousands attempt (I own the first 8 volumes). It's not that I don't like it, I do love this series, I believed I watched the anime five times already but every time I try to read I end up stopping at some point b I decided after a long debate with myself that I was going to add all the mangas that I read but to compensate the idea of not adding them all, I will only add the first volumes of the ones I finished reading. I'm actually still reading this. This is my third attempt or my fourth or my thousands attempt (I own the first 8 volumes). It's not that I don't like it, I do love this series, I believed I watched the anime five times already but every time I try to read I end up stopping at some point because I don't have time and I restart every time again. So the beginning of the story and this Volume I know almost by heart. Yet it always makes me itch to watch the series again even if I believe that the series is better. This time I'm finishing it. I have a manga app, and I'm having time to read it at work, this sounds bad but I work as a centralist, so I have to wait till there is a phone call to answer and in the mean time I decided to read manga. Who knows what more I will read this year! This is in my book-boyfriend list because of Dark. More I don't have to say, I still love him. The first time I watched this series was around 2007, so it's time to celebrate this ten year anniversary by finally finishing the manga. The story about a boy that becomes fourteen and shares his body with the famous phantom thief sounds like a tough world to keep up with, a double life and a stealing one for that matter. With a twin that's in love with you that keeps stalking you. What better shoujo does exist? So to add what I thought about this series: It was very funny, it was a nice conflict with the switching bodies and the love DNA what it was basically about. It was a total different setting from the series and I think I even prefer this version if you do not count that IT DOESN'T END! I'm slightly hating on this mangaka because it randomly stops because she wanted to do something else (if this is true tho) and the series end with this huge cliff hanger where never will be answers about.. really? Yes really! I thought it was a joke, it is not and it is super frustrating.

    4 stars...leaning towards a 4.5. I love the anime so much, and now I'm trying to get through the manga. I live Satoshi so much, but Daiske and Rika are adorable, too. I also really enjoyed the short one-shot at the end. 4 stars...leaning towards a 4.5. I love the anime so much, and now I'm trying to get through the manga.

    Sometimes it was hard to me to follow the intended love story in this, if it was the intended love story. The plight of our adorable, unfortunate, yet carefully trained heir to the Niwa clan, Daisuke Niwa captured my heart every time I looked into his enormous eyes.

The plight of our adorable, unfortunate, yet carefully trained heir to the Niwa clan, Daisuke Niwa captured my heart every time I looked into his enormous eyes. The fact that he got manhandled all the time at school (what’s Takeshi’s problem any way?), while being more than capable of picking locks and dodging traps his mom set up for him was an intriguing paradox. The Niwa family, their history of art thieves, and providing host bodies for the Phantom Thief Dark, of one person having the power to transform into Dark was all fascinating. What I didn’t understand was the love Dark and Daisuke were supposed to fulfil. Was it really about the Harada twins? Why? Risa Harada had moments of beauty, yet she was more interesting in obtaining a boyfriend as a status symbol than having a connection with another person on an intimate level. She wanted a status symbol and a means of outdoing her twin sister, neither motivation really impressing me or showing enough strength to really be impressive. Nor was I clear why Dark liked Riku Harada. Riku acts more as an obvious foil for Risa or a means to keep Daisuke from transforming than anything else, someone for Daisuke and Dark to react to than a desirable character in her own right. The most intriguing and desirable character was Satoshi Hiwatari, whose adversity towards Dark heated up the pages, yet his sweet, almost tenderly menacing moments with Daisuke (or Wiz) were some of the most intense parts of story as well as the most eye-catching panels. This is where the emotional energy and conflict leapt out at me, showing what truly felt like first love. It was those panels which sucked me into the story, along with my desire to see more of the connection between Satoshi and Daisuke/Dark. Second in power was the mysterious bond between Daisuke and Dark himself, sharing the same body, yet two different people. This bond was intriguingly intimate when removed from a forced sense of romantic rivalry over the twins. Or is there more to this rivalry than meets the eye? Perhaps the twins will grown and develop into characters I’ll understand the appeal of. The short story at the end was cute, but really didn’t grab me about a girl trying to summon a shikigami and the awkward relationship between herself and the shikigami she got. The artwork in this book was truly stunning. Satoshi and Dark were exquisite art candy while Daisuke’s sweetness and innocence was a striking contrast to both of them. All of the characters were quite distinctive. Risa’s most desirable moments were in some of the illustrations which made her beautiful while Riku was more subdued, yet her eyes held more depth and emotion. The twins stood out the most as potential romantic interests in the artwork itself, yet the story, text, and dialogue didn’t quite live up to this imagery, not did it convey why Dark and Daisuke are in love with them. What beauty, character strength, and plot energy this volume contained was enough for me to really enjoy it, though, and pick up the next book.

    The author, a comparative rookie at his stage, has a definite Shonen tint to their art despite this being a manga for girls.

As an introductory volume from a debuting mangaka the standard is relatively decent. The setup is established, the characters well introduced and everything is prepared for adventures down the line. The problem though that despite the improvements in art and writing as the series progresses is that this series is left incomplete. The english language publisher Tokyopop went under and the series took a generous hiatus from publication in Japan of a couple of years. IF you choose to follow this series you must be prepared to deal with this rather crucial element and a long wait before reaching the latter half of the series. The hiatus occurs at what appears to be a midpoint in the series with several new mysteries being introduced and no sense of clarity being offered to any of the pre-existing plot elements. The series is clearly written for younger girls but is shrewdly designed to appeal to the make audience as well with lots of action and phanthom thief shenanigans to entertain you. This particular volume is a little short on content, padded with short stories submitted by the same author which really should have been left for later volumes. Average at best and for younger teens only. The plot and characters are too shallow to appeal to older demographics and the art wavers in the first half of serialization. Weaker than much on the market but it does succeed in tacking certain boxes which guarantee a squadron of female fans.

    I have read this series and I absolutely love it. The mixture of chracters and the plot are phenomenal. Especially the contrast between Dark and Daisuke's personalities. Dark is a charismatic, and suave phantome thief, while Daiskue seems to be your typical everday 14 year old middle school kid (although he comes from a family of phantom thieves, and has received special thief training from his mother and grandfather).

Dark is a charismatic, and suave phantome thief, while Daiskue seems to be your typical everday 14 year old middle school kid (although he comes from a family of phantom thieves, and has received special thief training from his mother and grandfather). His life is normal at first until he learns about the abnormality caused by the Niwa genes. Apparently when he sees his crush he transforms into Dark (the legendary phantom thief). You think transforming is the only problem, but then he has Satoshi Hiwatari on his trail. This guy works for the police force (although he is only 14) and wants to uncover Dark's true identity. From stealing rare pieces of art to school life, and romance you get a bit of everyting in this graphical novel series. It will keep you on your toes, on the edge of your seat.

The art is just beautiful. The Dark/Krad and Daisuke/Satoshi dynamics are great. I love the concept of a Phantom Thief. My two biggest issues with it are 1. That's it's unfinished, obviously and 2. Risa. My word she is one annoying little child. I skipped scenes with her in it because she's THAT obnoxious.

    Currently my favorite series. Great characters, chaotic but plausible and easily followed plot, intense idea, low-to-no mature content, and all around way too much fun, not to mention incredible art. All the way around, I really can't find anything wrong with this. :D Currently my favorite series.

    I haven't read these since Middle School, and let's just start with the disappointing news that this doesn't hold up, and definitely didnt age well. I kinda forgot that the characters are in middle school, with the main character just turning 14. I usually just mentally age up all characters in books any way. (Like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.) It just makes it weird how young they are because this whole plot is based around a boy, who transforms after he feels emotions of love for his crush. S I haven't read these since Middle School, and let's just start with the disappointing news that this doesn't hold up, and definitely didnt age well. I kinda forgot that the characters are in middle school, with the main character just turning 14. I usually just mentally age up all characters in books any way. (Like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.) It just makes it weird how young they are because this whole plot is based around a boy, who transforms after he feels emotions of love for his crush. Sure, its supposed to be kinda cute, but it wont stop until his crush returns his feelings which is just...weird. Like obviously it fits for Daisukes situation. But what if somone in his family found someone and it worked out. Like for me, one of my first girlfriends I got along well with and dated for a long time (in middle school terms atleast). So that Niwa family member just....wouldnt be Dark? Its a flimsy plot element and just kinda dramatic considering they are only 14. The issues continue when we look at Risa. Daisukes love interest. Who rejects Daisuke and starts this whole dramatic plot. We dont have any history for any of these characters, but to me, it doesnt seem like they were friends before. But after Risa rejects him she just strings him along, (assumedly because she likes the attention), the definition of friend zoning. Shes really annoying and not likable, luckily Riku, her sister is. But that brings up another weird issue. When Dark, the Phantom thief appears, he falls for Riku....for some reason? It doesnt make sense why Dark, who just appears, likes this girl that neither of them talk to. The books ends in a really terrible fashion as Dark accidentally ends up in Rikus room, and when she starts to freak out, Dark pins her down, and awkward-flimsy-cutesy-anime physics kicks in and they end up kissing and then Dark flees. This is played off as kinda endearing but no...its kinda horrifying, and really should not be a plot element. This part is all the more disturbing because earlier in the book the girls are all gushing about how hot he is and he can do whatever he wants because he's attractive. Not. Ok. So besides all of that I still like the general set up. Mangas are so hard to review and rate because they are so short. I like the art, and its a small aspect, but I like how the creator changes their clothes, its a little touch that isnt found often in anime/ manga and Im a fan. The fashion is pretty cool. I also just really like Daisuke. I think he's cute and kinda awkward and you really feel for him and his weird life. Being a teen is hard enough, and now he's stuck with some family curse.

Daisuke can't turn back to his normal self and the only key is the Maiden or "Saint of Tears" statue but instead of actually turning back he sees the sister of the girl that rejects him(The girl that rejected him was Risa and her sister is Riku) and he suddenly turns back. He notices that to turn in to dark he has to look at Riza and to turn back he has to look at Riku. This book went very complicated as he starts to change back and forth even more and I despised when Riza wanted to become Daisuke's girlfriend when she said she didn't want him because he wouldn't raise her social standing. I can't compare this book to others I've read because this book's drama was a bit frustrating with Riza in it. She is very selfish and wanted to be better than her sister. Though I liked the part where the other character, Satoshi, came and started becoming friends with Daisuke and Satoshi was an emotionless teen so it was a very big surprise he wanted to be friends with Daisuke. I can relate to Daisuke with him being courageous yet shy at the same time because that's how I act with mostly strangers. I would recommend this book to manga lover's, complicated plot people, and drama lovers.

    Actual rating: more dipping into a 2.5 stars, but on the higher end of the spectrum (2.75?? If I did my ratings like that xD) This was such a weird story... I mean its basically about a 14 year old boy who turns into a slightly older boy when he's turned on ("in love" apparently), and steals art too... When you break it down like that, its pretty silly and strange. It can be pretty funny though, so I am some what intrigued to see what else happens.

I was confused at first because I didn't understand that it was a separate thing but I really enjoyed it. I wonder if the story was ever continued. Overall, I would say that I'm somewhat intrigued by where this story goes, so I'll probably check out another few volumes before I decide whether or not to dnf the series. Pick it up, give it a go and enjoy! >(^_^)< Gén

    entertaining. Good art, a lot of shoujo I've been reading has had...middling art so it's nice to have some higher caliber work. A 14 year old boy assumes his destiny as the Phantom Thief Dark when he thinks about his first love (Risa, who turned him down after he confessed his feelings to her) and reverts to mild-mannered Daisuke when Dark thinks about *his* first love (Riku, Risa's identical twin sister). Daisuke can't return to being a normal boy until his first love Risa, returns his feelings entertaining.

Daisuke can't return to being a normal boy until his first love Risa, returns his feelings for him. Also, there's a weird shape-shifting rabbit-squirrel thing that can change into either Dark or Daisuke if the situation calls for it. Riiiiiiiidiculous.

    D.N.Angel was one of the first manga series I ever read, and it was so much fun to revisit with my nostalgia goggles firmly on. The story is about a boy who finds out his family secret on his 14th birthday; that the men in his family transform into an infamous art thief whenever they experience romantic feelings, until they get their first crush to love them back. It's such an adorably absurd premise. I just wish the two love interests were more fleshed out as characters, as they come across as D.N.Angel was one of the first manga series I ever read, and it was so much fun to revisit with my nostalgia goggles firmly on.

I love Daisuke's mum though! She's so proud of her kleptomaniac son and she makes him pyjamas and is just the best.

    Interesting phenomenon happens to a young boy. Transforming without wanting to into a Dark Thief because it's in his family genes. Love unrequited forces him to turn into the boy who steals and who can't be stopped. Who knows about this besides his family? Who has found him out and knows his identity? I'm intrigued enough to continue reading to find out in the next volumes. I love the drawing. I find the panels and the story a bit difficult to follow sometimes but I can figure it out eventually.

    My first manga. Like most comic books, I have trouble figuring out what's going on a lot of the time. I'm used to reading words and tend to gloss over details in the pictures that would give me information needed for someone trying to follow the plot. The story is aimed at a demographic I'm not part of. I'm glad I'm not longer a manga virgin, and I have two more readily available which I plan to read, but I'm unlikely to seek it out for myself.

    I didn't like it, and I didn't hate it either, I'd give it 3 star's but that doesn't quite feel right so maybe 2 to 2.5 stars? Didn't go in with a high expectation so it didn't really let me down. Could very well be cause it's first in series the author held back and then invested more in later issue's. Added the next volume to wishlist so I'll give it a go and see where it takes me from there.

    This was such an interesting but strange series. I'll have to do a re-read, but I don't remember understanding exactly what happened in the end...lol I loved all of the characters, but while the plot was interesting, it seemed to add some twists that didn't make much sense.

    Interesting story, middle grade, I like it ok but it is a lot like Kamikaze Kaito/Phanton Thief Jeanne. Not sure if I will continue since I really like the other series.
