Stories without a good or evil side but have morally grey protagonists who have their eyes on the same thing are truly one of the best.
Kaitou Queen wa Circus ga Osuki is the perfect example of this trope and features a thrilling chase between a queen and a circus crew.
The protagonist is a queen known as the Phantom Thief Queen, whose age and gender remain a secret. They fly worldwide in an airship seeking treasures with their partners Joker and RD.
With their eyes set on the legendary cursed jewel, ‘Rose of Linden,’ Queen encounters a mysterious circus troupe who has already taken the jewel with them.
Now, this action-filled and thrilling novel series will be completing 20 years of its publication next year, and this means a special celebration is bound to happen.
Kaitou Queen wa Circus ga Osuki (Mirage Queen Aime Cirque) novel has announced a theatrical OVA adaptation slated for summer 2022 with a brilliant teaser.
The teaser is a thrilling compilation of scenes featuring Queen, their crew, and the notorious circus troupe.
The troupe consists of eccentric personalities, including a hypnotist, a magician, and an acrobat, and Queen will be going against them all to get back the jewel.
It also featured a mysterious clown belonging to the circus troupe and a flashback involving him and a kid. Do you think Phantom Queen and the clown share some history or have met in the past?
Along with the teaser, the franchise also revealed the main cast, and we have them here for you:
|Joker||Kazuki Katou||Kento Aizome (B-PROJECT)|
|RD||Yūma Uchida||Kyō Sōma (Fruits Basket)|
The story and concept are pretty engaging and refreshing to watch because who doesn’t love a good chase between two genius thieves?
I have high hopes for this one, and it has already become a part of my most anticipated releases list.
