Anime with thieves

No lupine. Something where the main character/characters are thieves. Or other crimes/shady things for money is acceptable .

Would Gintama be a good start? It sounds kinda like cowboy bebop/samurai champloo- both of which I liked.

Thanks

Gintama's main character is a samurai in an era when samurais are supposed to be not needed anymore, but still does samurai stuff. Nothing to do with thievery.
It's a great show though, but not what you are asking for right now.

Not sure of how good it really is (I was watching it when I was a kid and all I remember is that the female leads actually had boobs and were sexy as hell compared to the other cartoon girls of this era), but Cat's eye fits your request. It's very old though, so don't expect too much of the art / animation. It's Tsukasa Hojo (City Hunter, Angel Heart)'s first manga

Gintama isn't really anything like Bebop or Champloo, it's much more of an anachronistic comedy, with some amusing references to shonen anime. It does have one character who is a thief, but she isn't one of the lead characters. But even though it's not what you're looking for, I'd recommend you watch it anyway since it's pretty funny.

I'll second Nijuu Mensou no Musume, though not all the episodes are subbed yet. The main character, Chiko, and her mentor are thieves, and quite clever ones. It's a pretty exciting show and Chiko uses her brain as often as her fighting skills.

Darker Than Black would sort of fit what you're looking for

I wouldn't call any of those recommendations as truly being what OP wanted.

There's only one series I've ever seen that fits what OP wants - Daughter of Twenty Faces. This is a very superior series as well.

Not really an Anime, but a Manga

Silvery Crow

Only thing I could come up with

The OP also said "Or other crimes/shady things for money is acceptable", so I really don't see how Daughter of Twenty Faces qualifies and the likes of Baccano!, Noir or Black Lagoon do not. Especially Baccano! whose main characters are robbers and many of the other characters are mobsters and other shady figures. Not to mention how completely awesome the series is. Or the fact
Spoiler for Daughter of Twenty Faces, not a major spoiler but just to be sure:

I don't !
One of the posts above mine either has been edited or deleted (don't remember who posted about it), but it was the one recommending it. I merely posted another opinion about the show.

Spoiler for Daughter of Twenty Faces, not a major spoiler but just to be sure:
I'd say the reverse and that Twenty Faces is the only true thief series out of them at any point. Baccano is immortal alchemists and Mafia thugs. Noir is boring/mediocre assassin work. Black Lagoon is socopipathic/theological mercenaries. I didn't see any thievery in them.

I'd repeat that you really need to read the third sentence of the opening post.

In those more general terms, granted. I was going more by the thief label. There's a big difference between a thief and a mercenary/thug/Mafia.

Of course but I never claimed otherwise. I explicitely referred to "the shady things for money" request.

True that. I probably overdid it. Apologies, Matrim.
