2nd series of Dogtanian, not quite as good as the first, but very good.
I enjoyed the first series of Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds very much as a small child but was rather too old to be watching the second series when it appeared some years later, because I got home later from high school not because I wasn't interested in seeing it. I bought it recently because I love a good swashbuckler and was very pleased with it. It isn't quite as good as the original series, but still pretty good for those of you who liked Dogtanian, Ulysses 31, Dungeons and Dragons and The Mysterious Cities of Gold. I'd say it doesn't look quite as nice, the backgrounds are much the same and I wouldn't say the animation was inferior, but somehow Dogtanian himself doesn't have the same charm and I think the characters have bigger heads in relation to their bodies and all the cardinals guards seem to be duplicates with no pigs as they had before, otherwise it looks much the same. I haven't read the Dumas novels so I can't speak for how closely it resembles the stories, however I felt they should have dwelt longer on the Man In The Iron Mask storyline, and Athos seemed more foolish than in the first series. Still it was consistently entertaining, I am glad I bought it, and I would definitely watch it again. The only thing that puzzles me is why, years later, Captain Widdimer is still employed by the cardinal when he has obviously proved himself so useless?
