The whole lot of you. (except for the guy who suggested Lupin) are either dumb or seriously lacking in attention/reading comprehension skills.

The OP doesn't want anime whose authors stole ideas from other anime.

The OP WANTS anime where the Main Character steals shit from other characters.

... OP: Daughter of 20 Faces.. might be another one worth your time. 20 Faces is a master thief to rival Arsene Lupin. but he's more than that too.

I have to second the suggestion that if you're into anime theives you HAVE to watch one, some or all of the MANY Lupin the Third anime out there. They're old and old school but a lot of fun. They are also the prototype for much of what comes later.

Another old anime is a series called Cat's Eye. About two sisters who pose as rundown shop keepers by day and perform sneak theivery by night to avenge and redeem their dead father who was ruined and framed by the people they target. The main love interest is also the police detective pursuing their night time alter egos. Just to complicate their already complicated lives.

that's just off the top of my head.

[Edit a couple more]

009-1 is a spy thriller set in an alternate future where the cold war has gone on for an hundred years or so.

It's not thieving per se, but there's plenty of capers as the main character does her deadly dance with other spies over all kinds of secrets.

Just about everyone in Black Lagoon is a thief or a murderer or both or worse... but it's not really your traditional caper series.

More to follow if I think of any.

Thank you for the suggestions. I will check them out asap

There is at least one episode of Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2nd Gig that is a deliberate nod to those sorts of Caper flicks. Major Kusanagi actually poses as a sneak thief "casheye" as part of a sting operation her unit (Ministry of the Interior: Section 9) is running on some wealthy suspects. however the entire series of GiTS: SAC is quite fun

Louie the rune soldier
sometimes get's himself into places he shouldn't be but that's more of a fantasy comedy

Lina Inverse, the heroine of Slayers is a self admitted thief unfortunately she's not a sneak thief, she's a "Beat up the local bandits and take all their ill gotten gains for herself " thief.

I lol'd when I saw some posts.

Anyways, the only thieving anime I can think of is Mouse which is available here on Crunchyroll, though they only have the first 6 episodes. I honestly don't like it at all, but you could try and watch it.
