**The ''1412'' anime tries to answer this question in the second episode - Jii supplies Kaito with the gadgets, and a shot of a yellow Volkswagen Beetle pulling away from outside of the Blue Parrot heavily implies that he obtains them from Kudou Shin'ichi's neighbour Professor Agasa.

Sound familiar? It should. The Kaitou Kid also happens to be one of the most popular characters of ''DetectiveConan'' - the infinitely more famous detective show by the same mangaka, Gosho Aoyama. The two series are set in the same 'verse, and since Magic Kaito volumes stopped being produced, you can thank CanonWelding for his continuing existence and that of his peers.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: The driving force behind Kaito Kid's huge female fan base (which unsurprisingly includes Sonoko from DetectiveConan). * ArtEvolution: This manga's early artwork can be very jarring if you've dropped by from reading any volume of DetectiveConan, or even from the Shounen Sunday specials.

* VillainDecay: Snake arguably gets this; after a threatening enough introduction in "Blue Birthday", he gets handed more and more humiliating defeats from Kaito in his subsequent appearances.

* CerberusSyndrome: As mentioned above. It's a rather unorthodox case in that it didn't develop this until ''after'' it hit an irregular publishing schedule; the first dozen or so chapters (comprising the first two volumes) ran monthly throughout 1987 and 1988, and featured virtually no "serious" elements (unless one counts Akako's introduction). After that, the manga largely went on hiatus (with the occasional story released every few years), as Aoyama was busy working on ''{{Yaiba}}'' and later ''DetectiveConan''. For the record: Hakuba's introductory chapter came in 1990, while Snake and Pandora weren't established until 1993.

** Indeed. The first and second volumes of the series show Gosho's style was much more cartoonier and, in some ways, sloppier: lanky bodies, thinly inked lines, and [[MangaEffects abuse of screentones]]. His style got more proportioned, refined and cleaner as time went on.

At first, ''Magic Kaito'' is very much a formulaic comedy - Kaito notices something shiny, attempts to steal it, and Inspector Nakamori attempts to stop him (most likely failing) - but, just like its better-known successor, the series quite promptly catches CerebusSyndrome, although this series somehow manages it sometimes during its second volume, which is probably some kind of record. Well, yeah, it's still very formulaic afterwards; but the fact that Kaito has a purpose after that point becomes a major part of his motivation. The series is pretty notable, not only for its contribution to the ''Detective Conan'' universe, but also for featuring a lot of arcane magic which, sitting next to ''Conan'', would likely [[HowUnscientific render most of its logic moot]]. (Then again, it ''is'' a manga about one of the more chaotic characters of anime and manga. There's no time for logic when you can manipulate time and space.)
