SynopsisJing may appear to be a young boy, but his remarkable skills make him one of the most feared thieves on the planet. Along with his feathered partner Kir, Jing travels from town to town, stealing anything of value regardless of the amount of security. But when he's in a pinch, he has one more trick up his sleeve: Kir bonds with Jing's right arm to perform the effectively deadly "Kir Royale" attack. And because of all this, Jing is infamously known by many as the "King of Bandits."

I watched this anime a while ago, but I remember how I felt about it.
Was there one? As from wiki "King of Bandits Jing is a series of short, usually disconnected stories starring the young boy who calls himself Jing, the Bandit King. Although Jing's reputation seems to extend throughout the universe of the series, many enemies underestimate him, not expecting the "great" King of Bandits to be a "little kid"."
Quite accurate, a different story each episode. I admit, a few episodes did have a bit of charm to them, and the short romances that Jing experiences in the series were somewhat cute, but that's all the series gives. A light story, that allowed the creators to put little thought into the series. It can work, and I've seen it work, but Jing does not pull it off in a way I found satisfactory.
Though art, as is most things, is down to the viewers taste, I don't have much complaints about it. It's wasn't great, but I was happy with it. I'll leave it at that.
I found the music, the opening especially, to be very standard. Nothing stuck out all that well to me, and I was happy to skip it while watching. Overall, I don't particularly remember any of the music, nor am I bothered by this.
I actually found the characters really boring, Jing was a 'cool' young dude who didn't say much, somewhat carefree even. But nothing original really made me interested in his character. As for that stupid bird that followed him, all I could think of was that annoying parrot from 'Aladdin'. Minor characters that Jing ran into in the series did have a bit of appeal, but again, nothing really interested me or stuck out as original. I didn't even find them to be well done cliche's.
Some episodes entertained me, strangely enough one would be the episode with the Ghost Ship. I have been complaining about cliche's but sometimes they can appeal. A little, anyway.
Each episode left me with a feeling of disappointment, and sometimes confusion. I had no idea where the series was headed, and the 'ending' if you call it that was completely unimpressive. If you want a light-hearted series that doesn't demand much attention, however, then perhaps you should try it out. I'd imagine it may also very suitable for younger viewers, but it's nothing special. read more
they both similar animes , both have adventures each episode in another town they checking each episode have mysteris about the town ^_^ ,two great animes
Jing: King of Bandits is a philosophical, episodic anime (like Kino's Journey) that focuses on the main character and his sidekick. They travel the world searching for something--in Kino's Journey, it's knowledge; in Jing, it's treasure. All in all very good anime.
Kino travels from country to country and staying no longer than three days, which is just long enough to gain an understanding of the people living there. Jing travels from land to land in order to seek various treasures, staying only long enough to get what he wants, but not before becoming involved in the affairs of the people there. Both shows feature the titular characters traveling with a sidekick. Both main characters are tough and free spirited, and while they will help others in need, they'll only really do so out of self-interest.
Both shows feature storybook-like settings that are fantastical in nature, but each story has some meaning or theme that they try to explore. Their effectiveness can vary, ranging from remarkably profound to being heavy-handed, but both shows make great attempts to give insight into many philosophical and literary ideas. In both shows, each story presents a scenario to the viewer, where they are invited to find the reason behind the story, the real-world implications they have, questions that arises the implications, and possible answers that could be extracted by both the execution of the story and one's own interpretation. These stories may not all have deeper meaning, but the way they're presented leaves them open for investigation and discussion.
Kino's Journey is slow and passive while Jing: King of Bandits is an action/adventure/comedy that gets serious every now and then. Fine works both of them, but keep in mind that while they attempt to do the same thing, their presentation styles are different.
both are episodic fantasy anime about a mysterious person and their talkative partner who travels the world just to do so and finds interesting things along their way
Differences: Jing is more action and comedy while Kino is more philosophy and drama
Both shows are broken into short stories that last a few episodes. They both discuss the themes of otherness quite well while travelling and posing philosophical questions. Jing and Kino are both wonderful characters and I wouldn't mind watching their travels continue forever :D
Lol some infamous legendary super strong guy that travels around and does stuff ^.^ and they can shoot stuff outta their arms O.o
Trigun & King of Bandit Jing are quite pretty simular ^^
they both are adventure anime,when the main char,Vash from Trigun & Jing from King of Bandit Jing,travels from town to town,in order to find something,and help to a lot of people in the way,while their journey,they encounter a lot of enemies that know that there is some great King of Bandits like Jing & Vash the Stampede,and they dont belive they facing the real ones,both are comedy,adventure anime, similar to each other,if u liked one of them,I almost sure u will like the another.
