Review: Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne by Arina Tanemura (Volumes 1-7)

Synopsis: By day, Kusakabe Maron is an ordinary high school girl with more than her share of problems. But by night, she is Kamikaze Kaitou Jeannereincarnation of Joan of Arc! Her mission? Hunt down demonpossessed paintings and exorcise the evil spirits! But accomplishing this mission puts her in conflict with the authorities who only see her as a mysterious stranger vandalizing works of art. With only the help of angel-in-training Finn, she must survive high school during the day and fight evil by night! (from the online description)

Review: I picked up the first six volumes of these seven volume set at a booksale, for dirt cheap. That was my only introduction to it before I jumped in. I like the premise - the idea of demons in paintings - and that Jeanne (or Maron) goes to save them. The God/Lucifer stuff was a bit weird - and the angel stuff seemed rather random. But it was entertaining and amusing, as is, and I enjoyed reading it. I might not gush enthusiastic about it, but it was fine.
