User Reviews

Great Series! =D
9 April 2006 | by TailsProwerSee all my reviews

Reminiscent of shows such as Pokemon, Zatch Bell features a lot of versus battles. The storyline isn't hard to pick up on. While in England, Professor Takamine comes upon a boy in the middle of a forest, dying. The professor saves his life, and the boy, whose name turns out to be Zatch Bell, thereafter feels indebted to him, insisting he repay the favor. The professor sends Zatch to Japan to meet his son, Kiyo-- a fourteen year old genius who's about as arrogant as they get. Zatch's job is to help Kiyo learn to make friends. However, Zatch retains almost nothing of his memory from before he was rescued by Kiyo's father, and thus Kiyo ends up entangled in a bit of a mess upon discovering who and what Zatch really is...

This show is a lot of fun. It's not perfect, but the characters are entertaining, and the plot becomes more engaging the further into the series you go. The author (of the manga series that this show was based on) has sort of a strange sense of humor, and it even shows through in the toned-down English version of the series. The (English) rating is 8+, so you can't expect much in the line of blood or violence, even despite the battles, and the show in itself seems to be a tad bit notorious for the reuse of animation sequences where possible, but all in all, it's entertaining. :)
