"I first saw this while in China, and I spent a half year looking for it. The story goes that there is this orphaned boy who gets trained in a martial arts form. Sounds lame, only the martial arts is more like magic than any tae kwon do or whatever. Eventually he falls in love with his trainer, only due to misunderstandings, she leaves him. When he meets her in the end, she has amnesia, and doesn't recover her memory until they both contract a slow-acting flower poison. Old-fashion cliffhangers, martials action, and heavy plot make this a winner, even though I couldn't understand a word (I could follow it easily by the action)."
Good Classic Set

"Overall, Legend of the Condor Hero box set one (English/anime) is excellent. I just wish that the second and third set comes out in English soon so that I can buy it. And I do mean set, the complete set."

"Bleck, Horrible. The drawings aren't that great and the English voices are horrible. Dragon Girl [Xiao Long Nu] sounds like a 35 year old with an English accent and Yang Guo [Yang Gor] sounds like and idiot. I couldn't even finish this because it was so bad but I heard that Yang Guo dies at the end. THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN IN THE BOOK OR ANY OF THE VERSIONS WITH REAL PEOPLE!!! SPOILER: What happens is that Yang Guo and Dragon Girl are both poisoned. Yang Guo can be cured but Dragon can't. Knowing that Yang Guo will kill himself [not except antidote or just stab himself] she sneaks off one night, carves a note that says meet me here in 16 years and jumps off the Heartless Valley Cliff. The next day Yang Guo sees the note it reads; To my husband Yang Guo. The love between us husband and wife is extremely great. Meet me here in sixteen years. Do not break your promise. Dragon hoped that Yang Guo would believe she was alive and after 16 years when he found out she was dead he would not kill himself. Yang Guo is hind of skeptical that she is still alive so Huang Rong, Gwok Jin [Guo Jing], lies and says that she must have been taken by the South Sea Magic Nun and will meet him in 16 years. He waits 16 years and she doesn't show up for their reunion so he jumps off the cliff. He falls in to water. He comes to an underground cave where he meets Dragon who had some how survived and they go back to fight the Mongolians. They help Guo Jing and save his youngest daughter Xiang. Yang Guo becomes one of the new five greats along with Old Naughty Boy and Guo Jing. Then Yang Guo and Dragon go off to live peacefully in seclusion and are never seen again. Trust me I've read the book twice. [...]."
