A decent anime
14 November 2018 | by wikizolotarSee all my reviews

I agree with the first reviewer - it's an anime aimed strictly on the 12 & up demographic. Not just for it's violence and themes, but also the profanity might be a little too much for young children. But I recommend it for older viewers. I was like 12-13 when I started to watch it.

I LOVE the animation. It's not bad at all, but yeah, goofs happen. I like the new designs of the characters. They still have the charm "Ginga Nagareboshi Gin" had. The visuals kinda remind me of the "Inazuma 11" anime.

The voice acting is very nice. I'm delighted with mrs. Kukoryu's performances as Weed and (in a different anime!) Beyal. She sid a great job. Other actors of course, did well, too.

I've got a little problem with it's sloppy writting, but this is at times. For the most of the episodes, it's very pleasant, narrative-wise. I loved the stories as well.

Despite of many people complaining on Weed, he's a likeable character! He might be making mistakes, but it happens to all of us. I also like Kyoushiro and Ryo very much.

The music totally works!

Overall, "Ginga Densetsu Weed" is not for everyone and neither is it a perfect anime, but still - not a terrible one (at least for me). If you wanna check it out, then go ahead. You may not like it, however it's alright.
