Movie Reviews

Try it, it's a fun series!
RavenRing | USA | 08/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series is about a boy named Jing who, as the title suggests, is King of Bandits (as in skill, not through election). His only companion is a bird named Kir who can bond with Jing's arm to form a sort of magical cannon for the attack "Kir Royale". This attack is a little repetitive (as it is his only attack), however, it isn't very long and it looks cool. Jing is an interesting character, very calm and laid back. His demeanor is always that of someone who knows exactly what is going on and what to do. It isn't easy to tell if this is true or not.

As far as I can tell, there is no overall plot to this series. It is a bunch of short stories, most only lasting for a single episode (there are 13 episodes in all). While I would have enjoyed an actual story line (Jing is a fun character with lots of mystery surrounding him), I really liked the freedom that short stories gave. I looked forward to each episode, but it wasn't urgent for me to see the next episode because I just NEEDED to see what happened next. All of the stories excluding one were very entertaining and even that one wasn't too bad.

Both the English and the Japanese dubs were good, though I preferred the Japanese version as Jing sounded more like a kid (as he is supposed to be). The English voice just sounded a bit too old for the character.

All in all, I would really recommend this series to anyone. So go see it!"

"So far, not much story has deveolped (but thats expected from just episode one), the only thing learned so far you learn who the main character and his partner are. You also get to witness some of his abilities, that he and his partner share, which looks pretty cool and seems to have a devastating effect on the opposing side.

In episode one you meet Jing and Kir. Jing comes off as the calm, determined type. He of course turns out to be king of the bandits (as the title suggests), and it's easy to see why. He steals a rare stone that another bandit keeps in his mouth, without the guy knowing. All just to prove a point. Kir, is his side-kick albatross. Kir's main point of the show seems to be your comedy relief, as he wisecracks and has a perverted needs to stare at womens chests.

The animation is smooth and has it's 'eye-candy' moments. The story seems to be that of a slow developing but entertaining one none-the less. Think along the lines of One Piece, only not as cheesy (that's not to say One Piece is bad, I like One Piece as well, but I think I like this one more. ).

I hope by reading my review, you come to your own decision. As we all know, everyone has their own tastes and opinions."
One of the best Series I have seen in a long time

"King of Bandits Jing is a new Anime from Yuchi Kumakura's manga. It centers around a young boy named Jing and his friend/partner Kir. Jing is known as the King of Bandits. He can steal anything he wants, but he only goes for things that look good, and are priceless treasures. His past is unknown but he has a strong sense of justice. He also has the looks that make ladies attracted to him. But it's his bird partner Kir who has the eye for the ladies. Jing's adventures including a ghost ship, a town controlled by time, a village of eternal youth, and many other weird and exciting places. Something I love about this series is the music. It rocks. The opening is probably my favorite anime opener. My only complaint about the series is that there is little character development, or any history about the characters or the worlds that exist in this anime. So you just have to go with the flow. Highly reconmended for people who like action, comedy, and sometimes the just plain weird."
Action and... stuff...

"Even from the first episode, you can tell that this series is going to be great. Jing, the cute main character, is proclaimed the King of Bandits, though no one believes it at first because of his young looks and carefree personality. He only cares about one jewel in his collection, the one that has an image of a young woman in it. The first few episodes will hook you if you're looking for something funny and with great detail in the animation. I highly recommend this for anyone!"
