I love this anime!
19 February 2008 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Wow... I'm the first one to give a comment.... ehem..

First of all, when I first laid my eyes on this anime when I was still in 6th grade, it took my breath away....

This anime has everything... comedy, action, adventure, drama, horror(OK, No horror.... I'm just kidding). This anime has potential and can easily be loved by anyone....

OK, our protagonist... the young swordsman that goes by the name, "Yaiba". He's a young kid who lives in the forest with his dad to train his skills as a swordsman. He's got 2 pets with him to help him in his training, a vulture and a tiger. As far as I can remember (for Christ's sake, its been 11 years since I've seen this), after the incident in the 1st episode, Yaiba's dad has recommended that Yaiba should go to Japan and train harder. So after all is said and done, Yaiba goes to Japan.

That's that!

I'm not going to spoil anything anymore.

For your sake, Yes YOU! THE ONE WHO'S READING THIS! If you haven't seen the anime yet then stop reading this and go watch it!!!

All in all, a solid 10!
