Meimi is an ordinary Catholic schoolgirl who transforms at night into the daring thief Saint Tail. It's in the genes, as her mother was a notable burglar before marrying her stage-magician father, but she only steals from those who deserve it, or to help others. Her best friend, Seira, is a novice nun who somewhat heretically hears confessions from troubled parishioners and then blurts out the details to Meimi. Meimi then yells out, "It's showtime!" whereupon God Almighty transforms her into an angelic superthief in a costume based on a magician's female assistant: top hat, revealing bodysuit, and fishnet stockings. While Saint Tail restores valuable items to their true owners, the hapless police are unable to compete with her divinely assisted crime spree, though Meimi's classmate Asuka is the son of the beleaguered chief of police, determined to track down Saint Tail and hoping to capture Meimi's heart as well. A resurrection of two of the most successful themes of the 1980s-magical girls and TMS's own burglars-for-justice series Cat's Eye-with a dash of Las Vegas showmanship and Catholic guilt. Meimi regrets the embarrassment she causes Asuka's father as she carries out God's work. Based on Megumi Tachikawa's manga.
