Phantom Thieves

Once a drunken man abuses a woman on the road and joker defends her. He is falsely charged and sent on probation to Tokyo to attend the Shujin academy. One day Shujin Academy’s volleyball teacher molests and abuses his student Shiho Suzui. She will attempt suicide. Shiho will be in a coma and thus she cannot give her statement on the crime. No other student will be willing to give a statement against the volleyball teacher.

Shiho’s friend Ann, Joker and their friends decide to make the teacher confess his crimes by changing his heart. They succeed in doing so. As a result, Joker, Ann, and others form the Phantom Thieves army.


The people whose hearts Phantom thieves changed show a sudden change in behaviour which is very unnatural. There is no result when police interrogated these victims. Phantom thieves became very difficult to find. Many people including student council president supported phantom thieves army but at the same time, many of them questioned their methods.

Phantom thieves army is dissolved because Jokers’ probation is dropped and he can return to his home town.
