King Arthur and the Knights of Justice was and still is one of my personal favourite animated shows. Whether it is my favourite of all time I am not sure, but what I do know is that I really love it.
Animation: The animation quality is very good. It has fluid character designs, vibrant colours and detailed background art. Together they do very well in conveying a sense of wonder.
Music: The background scoring is beautiful, haunting and rousing, often in the same episode and even at the same time. The real revelation in this respect though is the main theme tune, one of the catchiest there ever was for any animated show and maybe ever.
Writing: I always love good writing in any film or show. King Arthur and the Knights of Justice's writing isn't just good, it is great. Filled with humour, suspense and intelligence.
Storyline: There are some very compelling storytelling here, with a fantasy-adventure atmosphere that is perfect considering the title. There is the good and evil theme but it is interesting rather than bland and clichéd, like I've known some films and TV shows of the genre to be.
Action sequences: Sometimes tense and suspenseful yet always thrilling and excitingly paced. I also loved the weapons of especially the hero characters.
Characters: All the characters have distinct personalities and are interesting in their own way. Despite the somewhat standard concept of good and evil(though it's acceptable considering the genre), none of them fall into being stereotypical and underdeveloped. More importantly the heroes are likable and the villains are appropriately antagonistic.
Voice acting: The voice cast consist of several talented voice actors, including Kathleen Barr, and all the time they give dynamic vocal performances.
Overall, a fantastic yet sadly underrated show. 10/10 Bethany Cox
