A 13 episode anime adaptation of the King of Bandit Jing Manga.

Jing looks like an ordinary kid, but in fact he's a master thief. He and his lecherous bird partner, Kir, can steal anything, whatever security measures are taken. And if Jing ever finds himself in a tight spot, Kir can bond with his arm to form a supergun.Yuichi Kumakura's manga was animated for TV to show some of Jing's criminal triumphs, resulting in a series of capers like a kiddified Lupin III, with just a touch of a Slayers-style cynic's attitude toward the genre. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the opening sequence, when the camera focuses on a lone figure, only be told it's got the wrong guy. Just as with Jing's antecedents in anime and manga, the master thief is soon stealing more than just trinkets; he rescues a girl from a slave market and becomes embroiled in a search for perfect paint colors. Later episodes take a leaf from the Young Kindaichi Files, stretching across two- and three-part story arcs. One focuses on a collection of astrologically themed gems that is almost complete and only requires Jing to acquire the Sun- and Moon-stones. The final sequence finds Jing forced to endure gladiatorial combat in an arena, where, like all master thieves before him, he hopes to win the love of a noble beauty. A three-part video sequel, King of Bandits Jing in Seventh Heaven, followed in 2004, again directed by Watanabe with design and animation by Oka. Jing and Kir get into Seventh Heaven, the most notorious and most ironically named prison in the world, to try and steal the Dream Orb from convict Campari.
