Kaitou Le Vin: a manga with Mission Impossible theme

Most shounen or seinen manga theme which popular in public are about adventure, action, martial arts, horror or drama theme mixed with love or friendship elements. Reader can be expected hooked by story development or cliffhanger situation at the end of chapter and want to know what happen to main character on next chapter. This repetition theme is good for publication but get boring if mangaka unable to improvise his/her story into different level or story development. For example, Fairy tail or Case Closed (Dectective Conan). Nevertheless, those series still popular today due by their rich art.

Kaitou Le Vin, however, introduces genres that rare to be exploited, action, thriller and deception. The setting is similar to "Mission impossible" series but it only focused for rare wine. The story evolve around wine burglar group with same name. Each member is a specialist in their field, such as actor, tech geek, female fatale, jack of all trade and leader.

In addition, they are perform mission for good cause or gentlemen thief style. Their client often victim or original owner of target wine which lost the item ages ago and it fall into wrong hand today. It was Kaitou Le Vin’s duty to return the bottle wine safely into the client.

The first mission is good one and expect to be more exciting in next story arch.

The story line in manga and light novel version are even more complex. Worth for reading too.

Anime cannot be compare to cartoon which aimed for children. Some anime are design for adult or young adult people who have better knowledge and can separate between fantasy or reality.
When I watched “Ghost in the Shell movie” as children ages ago I thought was that the real world in 1997-2000 where people got cybernetic implant and supercomputer affect our daily life.
Later, I watched the movie in 2000, I already had enough knowledge and mature enough to understand that it was just fantasy and had fun watching it.
I think this a best way to describe my maturity development.

My first exposure to manga world is “Doraemon” 1st volume. I thought it just like European comic, such as, Tintin or John & Pirlouit. Nevertheless, I was wrong and sucked into Doraemon and Nobita’s silliness and humor situation until today. Good old time.

Sai no Koi is a good manga for anyone who want remind their youth or puberty time although I do disagree with older woman “Love interest” between Hinohara-sensei and Nagai. It’s much admiration than love. But, everyone have different opinion.
The selling points of this manga are art and story line.
