Itsuwaribito is gay. Actually, I lie; it's actually really friggin hilarious. That, coupled with the fact that Utsuho is a master of the art of deception, martial arts, and has the greatest poker face in the world, makes Itsuwaribito a highly-anticipated anime for me. I mean, who can resist? The action is good, the story has lots of room for improvisation, and all the characters are memorable (even if the story only introduces a handful.
Basically, Utsuho always lies (even about lying). Thus, he naturally becomes a thief. But he's actually one of those gentleman thieves in which he "steals from the rich and gives to the poor" so-to-speak. You know what, I'm going to end up spoiling everything, so why don't you give it a look yourself?
P.S. There's a talking baby ferret in it.
