* AwfulTruth: Maron is on a MissionFromGod. About halfway through the manga and towards the end oft he anime, she finds out that [[spoiler:she's been working for Satan all along, her MentorMascot is a FallenAngel who was in on the whole thing, and the two have been conspiring to [[BreakTheCutie break her]]. In the former's case, this has been happening since [[spoiler:she was an infant]].

* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Jeanne d'Arc herself'', of all people. Both the manga and the anime have Maron meet the historical Jeanne d'Arc. In the anime she reminds Maron of her true purpose, motivates her and helps her get back on her feet. The same Jeanne d'Arc in the manga has given into her fate. It's ''Maron'' who convinces her that not all hope is lost.
* AdaptationalModesty: Any references to Jeanne being "pure", Noin attempting to rape Maron, or [[spoiler:Maron and Chiaki]] having sex are absent from the anime adaptation.
* AdaptedOut: Most of the angel-related backstory is only found in the manga. This includes Finn's and Access' backstory in heaven, angels Toki and Celcia, and the actual reason Finn started [[spoiler:working for the Devil]].
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Chapter 17. Coming right after the Zen arc in the manga, it deals with Kagura and his feeling for Yashiro. While there's a DemonicPossession that ties it into the rest of the story, it only seems to be there to make the LoveDodecahedron even bigger.
* ArcWords: Any reference to "wind". God can't interfere in human life beyond creating wind, several characters wish they could "fly away", Maron is described by several people as a gentle wind, and in the end Maron states that she wants to become a healing, challenging or supporting wind in people's lives. Chapter 23, in which Maron meets [[spoiler:Jeanne d'Arc]] is titled "The Wind Is Born". The title of the story itself includes these arc words – "kami kaze" means "divine wind".



* CoitusEnsues: Manga-only, chapter 29. [[spoiler:Maron and Chiaki have sex in the night before the FinalBattle.]] Two full-page spreads are dedicated to it.



* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: The trope is present, and the reason why God doesn't have a lot of power in the human world.
--> '''Noin''' (anime), [[spoiler:'''Finn''']] (manga): "God can only do three things for humans. Firstly... He brings forth their souls. Secondly... He watches over those souls. And then... He can move the earth's air... "

world. The following quote is presented in a positive and hopeful way in the manga, sarcastically in the anime.
--> '''Noin''' (anime), [[spoiler:'''Finn''']] '''Finn''' (manga): "God can only do three things for humans. Firstly... He brings forth their souls. Secondly... He watches over those souls. And then... He can move the earth's air... "


Added DiffLines:

* FillerVillain: CuteMonsterGirl Myst who appears in the anime at the same time Noin does, and sends [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters oft he Week]] after Jeanne.


Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: The Christian church who burned Jeanne d'Arc at the stake was a villain to begin with, but the whole of France including the bishops being possessed by demons invokes this trope.
* ImmortalityInducer: God can give a human's soul the [[BornAgainImmortality power to reincarnate]]. Demons can give humans the power to [[TheAgeless never die of old age]].
--> '''Noin: ''' "A human whose heart has been possessed by a demon evolves into a stronger demon. [...] They don't die."


Added DiffLines:

* LivingShadow: Most demons lack shape or form, appear as shadows in the artwork they inhabit or as the shadow of the person they possess.
* LoveDodecahedron: PlayedForDrama. Consisting of several love triangles, only ''two'' of which don't intersect, but TriangRelations really doesn't quite cover it anymore.
** Both Maron and Miyako fall in love with Chiaki, who pretends to flirt with Maron but later actually falls in love with her. Both Zen and Yamato have an unreciprocated crush on Maron. Yamato later falls for Miyako, who [[PairTheSpares eventually]] returns his affection. With Maron being the {{Reincarnation}} of Noin's love Jeanne d'Arc, Noin believes in a ReincarnationRomance with Maron, who's not interested at all. At least he's still adored by his [[PetTheDog demon pet dragon Silk]]. Another one of her previous incarnations, [[spoiler:the biblical Eve]], was loved by both [[spoiler:Adam and ''God'']], but the latter seems to be over it by the time he appears in the story. The only person for whom Maron develops romantic feelings is indeed Chiaki. He, hoewever, is still loved by his former [[ArrangedMarriage fiance]] Yashiro. At least until she starts dating her admirer Kagura, who didn't confess his love earlier because he's the Chiaki's family butler.
** As for the angels, both Access and Toki love Finn. The latter loves Access but [[spoiler:is seduced by the Devil]] after [[spoiler:falling from heaven]]. Oh, and [[spoiler:Satan himself]]? He's actually [[spoiler:the loneliness God cast out of his body after banishing Adam and Eve from paradise]]. Remember how we said these two Dodecahedron's don't intersect? [[ILied We lied.]]
* MagicHair: The angels' hair contains their power.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerDyesYourHair: An angel's hair color can change after receiving a significant amount of power. Finn's hair becomes green this way.


Added DiffLines:

* StableTimeLoop: Maron and Noin's trip to [[spoiler:fifteenth century Europe]] is present in both the manga and the anime, but only the manga plays this trope straight.
** [[spoiler:Most of France]] is possessed by demons. As it turns out, it wasn't [[spoiler:the historical Jeanne]] who sealed them once and for all, but Maron. It's also [[spoiler:Jeanne d'Arc]] in the past who gives Maron the power to transform without Finn's help in the present day.
** Noin Claude was once possessed by a demon and eventually turned into one himself. The demon who possessed him was [[spoiler:is own demonic future self]] in order to ensure that he would [[spoiler:live long enough to meet his love Jeanne's reincarnation]].
* SympathyForTheDevil: One of the last chapters reveals that the Devil was born [[spoiler:from God's loneliness and sorrow]] which he felt after [[spoiler:banning Adam and Eve from paradise]]. AllLovingHeroine Maron certainly agrees with this trope.

* EvilPlan: The Devil's plan throughout the series is not only to weaken God's power, but to [[spoiler:break Maron's spirit]]. In the manga he does this to [[spoiler:end Jeanne's cycle of reincarnation]], in the anime this [[spoiler:weakens her holy shield]].

Because the items these demons hide in vanish after being sealed, she's mistaken as a PhantomThief and constantly on the run from the police. A skilled gymnast and acrobat, the majority of her attacks use feminine tools such as ribbons and flowers to fight the demons.
* FerrisWheelDateMoment: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged]]. Maron and Chiaki share a ride on a ferris wheel in chapter 3 of the manga or episode 15 of the anime. While it's not played as a romantic moment, it builds trust between Maron and Chiaki when she tells him about her parents' MeetCute and her ParentalAbandonment.

* MeetCute: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged]] in the case of Maron's parents. They met twice in front of the same carousel, years apart and by various coincidences, and fell in love. By the time of the story, they're working in different countries from each other and their daughter, and they unknowingly cause a HeroicBSOD in Maron by [[spoiler:telling her they're planning a divorce]]. As it turns out, [[spoiler:the Devil appears to have intervened to destroy their feelings of love for each other as part of an EvilPlan to end Jeanne's cycle of reincarnation by breaking Maron's spirit]].

->''"Strong and serious... Matchless and marvelous... Energetic and fearless! – Game Start!"''
-->-- '''Jeanne's Transformation Catch Phrase'''



[[BrokenBird Maron Kusakabe]] may seem to be an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, but secretly she is the {{reincarnation}} of Joan of Arc, {{Kaitou}} [[MagicalGirl Jeanne]]! Maron is on a MissionFromGod to seal demons hiding in works of art, which [[DemonicPossession 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 ([[PhantomThief 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.

[[ParentalAbandonment 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, HandsomeLech 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, [[TheRival 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, KamikazeKaitouJeanne is the first major work by Creator/ArinaTanemura. It was adapted into a 44 episode {{Anime}} by Toei in 1999. It stands apart from most MagicalGirl series by having a BrokenBird heroine, and can be quite a TearJerker at times.

By the time of the story, they're working in different countries from each other and their daughter, and they unknowingly cause a HeroicBSOD in Maron by [[spoiler: telling [[spoiler:telling her they're planning a divorce]]. As it turns out, [[spoiler: the [[spoiler:the Devil appears to have intervened to destroy their feelings of love for each other as part of an EvilPlan to end Jeanne's cycle of reincarnation by breaking Maron's spirit]]. Only, that's not really the case: [[spoiler: it's [[spoiler:it's revealed that they would have broken up anyways, and no intervention was required]]. At the end of the series, [[spoiler: her [[spoiler:her parents are shown meeting each other again in a third iteration of the same MeetCute, implying that it really was the Devil's intervention that caused it]].
* MentorMascot: Finn Fish serves as Jeanne's. [[spoiler: Too bad she's not entirely trustworthy.]]
* MirrorMatch: [[spoiler: The final battle in the manga has Maron fighting an evil twin version of herself.]]
* MissingMom: Chiaki's died when he was five.
* MissionFromGod: Jeanne. [[spoiler: Subverted when Jeanne finds out she's been working for the Devil this whole time without knowing it.]]
* ModestyShorts
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Finn Fish]]
* MustNotDieAVirgin: In the manga before the final battle between [[spoiler: [[MirrorMatch Maron and herself]], Maron finally [[LoveConfession breaks down in front of Chiaki]], who [[CoitusEnsues responds in kind]]. ]]
it]].



* ObfuscatingStupidity: In the manga, [[spoiler:Miyako always knew that Maron was Kaito Jeanne, and was intentionally failing to catch her]].
* OnlySixFaces
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: In the manga, angels are [[spoiler: amnesiac reincarnations of pure humans on Earth]] that carry and collect God's power, and are separated into ranks based on how much divine power they have built up over the years. These ranks can be easily distinguished by their size and their wings - Finn, as a low-ranking angel, is [[SleepModeSize small]] with [[GoodWingsEvilWings white wings]]. [[spoiler: Fallen angels contain no power, and literally drain the power from angels they come into contact with, whether they wish to or not.]]
* PairTheSpares: Yamato and Miyako
* PaperThinDisguise: Averted: Maron and Jeanne have completely different hair and eye colors and hairstyles, instead of just wearing different clothes. And even then, some people notice that they look similar.
* ParentalAbandonment: Maron's parents both moved overseas when she was small and never call or write her.
* PowerGivesYouWings
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Finn dies shortly after getting redeemed. However, redemption also [[RedemptionEarnsLife earns reincarnation]].]]
* {{Reincarnation}}: Not only is Maron the reincarnation of Jean D'arc,[[spoiler: but she (and Jean) are also the reincarnation of Eve (Yeah, [[Literature/TheBible that Eve]]) in the manga and Chiaki is heavily implied to be Adam's reincarnation. Also Finn Fish is the angel-incarnation of Natsuki, a young {{Miko}}, who was murdered by her own possessed brother for profit (almost twice). Also, she and Access Time are both reborn in the end of the manga as Maron's and Chiaki's daughter Natsuki (yeah, creative) and Yamato's and Miyako's son Shinji.]]
** ReincarnationRomance: Noin has a twisted idea that this is what he'll have with Marron, who is Jeanne's reincarnation. At the end of the manga, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Marron, and Jeanne and the reincarnations before Jeanne, are all reincarnations of Eve and Chiaki is implied to be Adam's reincarnation]]. Slapped on one final time with [[spoiler: Natsuki (reincarnated Fynn) and Shinji (reincarnated Access)]], though Arina's notes on them reveals that the romance might not work immediately, due to only one of the reincarnated party having memories of their previous life and love.
*** A side story included in the rerelease does indeed deconstruct this. [[spoiler: Natsuki sees Access in her dreams and believes him to be her lover from a previous life, but she doesn't know that this is actually Shinji and thus sees his persistent advances as annoying.]] They manage to work it out, though.
* SadisticChoice: Noin sets up one of these as part of the process of [[BreakTheCutie breaking Maron]]. Seal the demon, kill the child. Leave the demon, and it will eventually consume the child's soul. [[spoiler: She decides that she’ll watch over the boy until he gets his upcoming heart surgery, and she’ll do her best to keep the demon at bay without fully exorcising it. And then Sinbad shows up and kills the demon himself, causing the boy to die, but he later becomes a kuro-tenshi.]]
* ShootTheDog: Sinbad burning the photographer's house. This generally seems to be Sinbad's raison d'etre.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Finn versus Fin. The latter is less like a normal name, but makes more sense with her name. (It's supposed to be a pun, ''Fin'' Fish.)
** She's called Fynn in Norway and Germany for some reason...

* StepfordSmiler: Maron.
* TakeAThirdOption: Maron tries this with the possessed boy. [[spoiler: It doesn't work]].



* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Access loves pancakes. [[spoiler: So does his human reincarnation.]]
* TransformationSequence: The second is really long.
* TransformationTrinket: The rosaries.
** Subverted at the end. Chiaki no longer needs to transform to use his power (since Maron knows it's him), and Maron no longer needs it ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome period]]'' since she is no longer using the power of her trinket, but the power of her self-belief.
* TraumaticHaircut: Ever wonder how Finn got that odd haircut, short in the back with long sidelocks? [[spoiler: In the backstory, a demon-possessed human cut her hair in order to steal her angelic powers. It [[SuperpowerMeltdown worked too well]] and a bunch of humans died in the explosion, resulting in Finn's banishment from heaven.]]

* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Jeanne herself and later [[FallenAngel Finn]]. Although in the manga, Finn wasn't unwitting and argued that she was using Satan just as much as he was using her.]]
* VirginPower: Maron can only turn into Jeanne if she is "pure" (leading to Noin [[DefiledForever attempting to rape her so that she can no longer become Jeanne]]). [[spoiler:As it turns out, though, that's not the definition of "pure"; being "pure" means having a pure soul and believing in your own purity, and Maron realizes this about halfway through the series, also inspiring hope in her past reincarnation.]]
* WasItAllALie: [[spoiler: Maron asks Finn this after the latter reveals that she's been evil all along. Finn initially says that yes, it was all a lie, although she later admits that she did really love Maron.]]
