One of my childhood's best anime!
6 November 2006 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

I grew up with Kabamaru IgaNo! I think it's one of the best cartoons of the 80s ever. Check out the episodes in Greek language as well :) This cartoon was a major hit in Greece in late 80s and all children who grew up with it are now looking for it on DVD so that their own children can have the same experience they also had with Kabamaru. Unfortunately all these have been replaced with cartoons like POKEMON and DIGIMON all with violence and stuff.. shame!

The story is of a boy who loses his grandpa and starts living with his grandfather's mistress who is a school director. funny things start to happen when he tries to cope with modern life in the city since he grew up entirely in the woods
