Magic Kaito is a Japanese phantom thief manga series written and illustrated by Gosho Aoyama, that began in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday in 1987. The story tells of a thief named Kaito Kid. Aoyama stopped work on the manga after the first two tankōbon volumes were published in 1988, and only occasionally updates it: the third volume was published in 1994 and the fourth volume in 2007; two more chapters were released in 2011, and another three chapters will be released between October 1 and October 15, 2014. Kaito Kid and other characters from Magic Kaito make occasional appearances in Detective Conan, another manga series by Aoyama that has also been adapted into an anime. Several animated television specials based on the series have been produced, with twelve having aired between 2010 and 2012 to date. A 24 episodes anime series titled Magic Kaito 1412 was created by A-1 Pictures and began airing on October 4, 2014.
