Kimba IMO
3 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

I'm writing because I felt really angry with last comment. Note that I first watched Kimba this Year.

Just for beginning, Kimba was the first Anime in being made in full color, if you watched it for the first time during the XXI Century then you might think animation is quite crappy... but for those times it was outstanding, specially for a Japanese cartoon.

What makes Kimba so different from the other cartoons of time is that each character has depth by itself. Along the different episodes they grow, learn and keep the essential lines about their personalities. The main character, Kimba/Leo, has many doubts about himself and his ability to rule at the beginning of the series, but along them he gain experience and self-esteem enough to don't live behind the shadow of his father's greatness. Also each episode deal with a lesson on morality and justice.

Kimba specially explores the relationship between Humans and animals and delivers a simply message of understanding to everyone.

Is it childish? Well, of course it isn't the same to watch it being a kid than an adult, but you can now certainly understand things that by that time you couldn't. Besides, if you watch any cartoon made for kids, of course that you should spec it to be childish!!

Kimba the White Lion is at all, the perfect merge between Japanese Anime's storytelling and depth, and American cartoon's cuteness, charming characters and sense of humor that make it easy to bare for young children.
