An Honourable thief

Postby sherlover on 24 Jun 2011, 15:57

so what do you think about this new manga Dorobou wa Koi no Hajimari a.k.a an honorable thief..i bet its great so lets begin the official discussion :D :D

now for summary:Kit Smith, honoring her father's dying wish, has moved to London to pose as the niece of Rose Singleton, a member of the ton. Kit can't imagine what influence her gambler father exerted to bring about Kit's introduction into polite society.

Hugo Devinish, a second son, went to sea as a cabin boy and is now a prosperous merchant and ship captain. He decides to attend a party in town to check up on an heiress that his young nephew is courting.

Meeting Hugo at a party, Kit wonders why he wishes to dance with her—until she overhears him explaining his mission to a friend. Kit muses that they must be talking about her. So, the family watchdog has been dispatched to investigate her, eh? Kit thinks it's not very charitable of him to describe her as "a chit with more hair than conversation." But more than that, she wonders why he thinks she's an heiress? Still, if he wishes to dance with a simpering simpleton, she can well oblige him!

I absolutely love this book! I'm not sure why, but whenever I see a female thief it makes me smile. I guess it's because most crafty thieves are portrayed as handsome men, so a female is refreshing. I really enjoy her personalty as well! I can't wait to read the next chapter!!!

I think it's great, every chapter has been really exciting...I think it's hysterical how Kit keeps acting like she's really boring and can't speak very well around the guy character(can't remember his name)hope it stays exciting and doesn't do one of those crash endings... :D

I'm really loving this one so far! And I love how it's stretched out a little longer into two volumes! It's still a quick read, but this way you get more details on the story.

The storyline feels really familiar to me, so I get this feeling that I might have read the book? Yet it doesn't really trigger any memories... Lol! It just seems that way.

I hope it stays as good as it has been so far. Can't wait to read more of it~

This book is one of my fav too. I think the guy name is Hugo.
I have the novel version and I must say the novel and the manga are both great. :D

I think that it is the feminist in us talking. The heroine of this story is different and that is why I like it.

fav. parts of the story: Kit pretending to be dull.

Hugo getting knocked out by the maid.

and anytime Kit is running up down as a ninja.

interesting can't wait to read it, it will probably be a really good one, since most of the ones I've read here are really good.

what i really enjoyed was the entire "imma thief in the regency era" thing. with the taboo of females wearing pants, let alone going around at night to steal, is very enticing! if it had been in the modern age, i doubt it would have been as interesting as it is now. what do you guys think?

oh and hugo is quite the looker. although at times i've got to pity him (and his male pride)
