20面相におねがい!! (Nijū Mensō ni Onegai!!, 20 Faces, Please!!) is a manga by CLAMP; published as "Man of Many Faces" in North-America by Tokyopop.
The story revolves around a nine-year-old boy named Akira Ijuhin who steals beautiful and valuable objects to please his two mothers and is known to the public as the dashing, clever thief named the "Man of 20 Faces".
The storyline of Man of Many Faces occurs simultaneously with both CLAMP School Detectives and Duklyon. As demonstrated by a conversation between Nokoru and Suou which also takes place in School Detectives, while in Duklyon Akira and Utako appear to be the same age as in Man of Many Faces.
Although Akira Ijuhin is a master of disguise and an expert thief, nothing could prepare him for his first destined meeting with the heartbroken Utako Okawa.
On that fated night, the famous thief has the only thing that he does not even think of (considering his age of nine) stolen – his innocent heart. The two fall in love, but what is Akira to do about his secret job?
The whole two volumes of the series is a melody of love between the renowned mysterious thief 20 Faces and a smart kindergarten girl Utako Okawa.
Despite their very young age, they also struggle through any obstacles in order to reach the heart of one another, to strive for each other's love.
