Phantom Thief Roman is best explained as Lupin the 3rd meets Bakumatsu era Japan. The titular thief calls himself Roman despite his real name being Manjiro, he bares a striking resemblance to Lupin with the addition of a beard. All in all it looks like a roaring good time, the kind of fun that only Monkey Punch knows how to create.
