Ayuko Hatta's original Wolf Girl & Black Prince (Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji) shōjo manga centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyōya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog.
Kanae Ito will play Erika Shinohara in the anime, while Takahiro Sakurai will play Kyōya Sata. Kenichi Kasai will direct the anime at TYO Animations from scripts by Sawako Hirabayashi with series composition by Sawako Hirabayashi. Maki Fujioka is designing the characters, and Go Sakabe is composing the soundtrack for the series.
In Hideyasu Takahashi's Joker (Kaitō Joker or Mysterious Joker) manga that inspired the anime, there is nothing in the world that the mysterious phantom thief Joker cannot steal. He goes after one treasure after another in unpredictable capers with seemingly miraculous tricks.
