• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Maron Kusakabe may seem to be an Ordinary High School Student, but secretly she is the Reincarnation of Joan of Arc, Kaitou Jeanne! Maron is on a Mission From God to seal demons hiding in works of art, which possess and corrupt pure-hearted people that admire their beauty. Unfortunately, sealing the demon also causes the artwork it inhabits to disappear, making Jeanne seem to be nothing more than a petty (if stylish) thief to most, meaning that the police and Maron's best friend Miyako, who dreams of becoming a detective, are dedicated to catching her. Fortunately, Jeanne has God's blessing and a number of divine tools at her disposal, giving her an edge over them.

Because her divorced parents live and work overseas, Maron lives alone in her apartment with tiny angel Finn Fish. Across the hall live Miyako and her family, unaware of Maron's identity. Then, Handsome Lech Chiaki Nagoya moves in next door. He gets on Maron's nerves, but Miyako instantly falls head-over-heels in love with him. Soon after, Kaitou Sinbad, another kaitou wielding the same powers as Jeanne, appears on the scene and starts competing with Jeanne to see who can seal the demons first. Finn and Maron wonder who he could be, as Maron was supposed to be the only kaitou. Finn and Maron both conclude that Sinbad must be Jeanne's opposite — a kaitou working for the devil. All may not be as it seems, however....

Published in the shoujo magazine Ribon from 1998 to 2000, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne is the first major work by Arina Tanemura. It was adapted into a 44 episode Anime by Toei in 1999. It stands apart from most Magical Girl series by having a Broken Bird heroine, and can be quite a Tear Jerker at times.

Tropes used in Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne include:
