One of the Greatest Animes of all times...
27 April 2005 | by d1ment1aSee all my reviews

Puraresu Sanshiro or Plawress Sanshiro or simply Jumaru is an anime dated back in the 80's...It's about a boy Sanshiro who owns a plastic doll, Jumaru, which guides through his computer in wrestling matches with other owners..Plawress is the name of the sport...Sanshiro wants to participate in the Pan-Japanic plawress tournament but he isn't a member of the Plawress club..The anime centers in the matches Sanshiro gives with Jumaru and his efforts to become a member of the Pan-Japanic Plawress club to be able to participate in national and international tournaments... "Plawress Sunshiro" isn't famous like "Kabamaru"(Ninja Boy) but it's a fantastic anime from all the aspects. It's anime design though classic for that period is very beautiful, it's music fits the whole concept very good, the characters are well thought, the humorous,tragical and action elements are well combined and the plot is not tired-some...If you find it (personally i search the internet but i didn't find anything, until a friend gave me a DVD with episodes 1 -12) watch it and i am sure that you 'll love it...
