Daisuke Niwa is an ordinary middle school student who has inherited an interesting family condition. Upon seeing Risa, the girl he adores, he transforms into a daring phantom thief. When the phantom thief sees his own object of desire, he turns back into Daisuke. The only way to cure this craziness is if Daisuke can get Risa to fall in love with him, but how can she love someone she can’t see?

This is another one of my favorites! I absolutely LOVE this series! The main reason? This guy right here:
DARK MOUSY. Sexy phantom thief. *swoon* He’s one of my top 3 favorite manga crushes ever! I love him so much.♥
And of course the cute lil furry guy on his shoulder – Wiz! He’s freaking adorable, I love him too! Plus he transforms into Dark’s wings, it’s awesome. I want a Wiz stuffie so bad, haha.
I love the plot of this one, too. Riku and Risa are twins, and Dark and Daisuke are two halves of the same person, and they have this crazy love square going on (not in a bad way, I promise)…it’s great! I love that Riku makes Dark change and Risa makes Daisuke change.
Side note, I forgot how much Risa pissed me off. She’s so shallow and superficial! It drove me crazy. 
If you enjoy manga and love shoujo, I highly suggest this one! The series is AMAZING, and it gets better as it goes on. Plus it has some of the best art I’ve ever seen in a manga.
assessmentPlot: 5/5
Art: 5+/5
Originality: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Pace: 5/5
Cover: 4/5
