Hustler vs. Magician (ハスラーVSマジッャン Hasurā VS Majishan?) is the 3rd episode of Magic Kaito 1412 anime.






While playing a round pool with Aoko, Kaito is harassed by a goon who warns that his Boss will buy the Blue Parrot Billiards Club, owned by Jii himself. Jii remembers playing a great billiards player, Tsuujirou Hasura, who also happens to works for the Boss of the goon from earlier. After hearing how Jii was hustled out of his gem-encrusted pool cue, Kaito brings him and Aoko for an undercover theft/retrieval. KID sends an advanced notice of his theft to Hasura, and Jii brings the pair to the pool bar with Hasura; the only catch is that Kaito and Aoko pretend to be married university students to be able to enter. Kaito plays a few rounds where he loses each and in his last ante wagers Jii's club and Hasura's bejeweled cued. Aoko abruptly arrives inebriated after having drank a couple Martinis and plays on the piano to a tune matching Kaito's rhythm and Kaito wins using a spectacular pool technique his father taught him as a boy.

  • Resolution


    Manga to anime changes

    • The manga version of this story features Inspector Nakamori, who accidentally gets Aoko drunk at the Blue Parrot (while under the influence of alcohol himself). He later leads the charge to arrest the gun smugglers. The anime removes the Inspector entirely, implying that Aoko got drunk on her own.
