  • You'd think a city full of theives would be more exciting.

    In the first episode of KoBJ, Jing and Kir arrive at the Capital of thieves, the home of all devious criminals. Jing is there only to look for the double mermaid. This episode was very average, and not much happened. The double mermaid turned out to be an old lady who Kir had hasseled, and her daughter. Everyone in the capital of theives wants to get at the treasure of the double mermaid, including the big, yet obnoxious Vodka. He and his men come up with a few "bright" ideas, but they all fail. Jing is the only one smart enough to reach the double mermaid. The Capital Of Theives was a good episode, but wasn't as exciting as other episodes.moreless
