Jing 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."

Laohoam- To me this anime had a lot of potential, but failed to reach it. The lack of a plot is what got me the most. Though there was some episodes that tied together, other then those the only thing that really tied the anime together was the fact he was the king of bandits. I would recommend if you want a few short stories, which is what each episode pretty much was, but all and all it was ok.
Zarroc- it was good.

Tadgh: For starters, I really liked the art style, it was what attracted me to this anime in read more

I bought King of Bandit Jing as a Complete Collection because it was actually quite cheap and because I've heard it was quite good.

When I started watching I kind of got the feeling, that watching all the episodes in a row might take away some of the feeling of the anime, because the episodes are in most cases unconnected. For that reason I wasn't really captivated by the anime. Starting from episode 6 though, it got alot more interesting and I started to really enjoy it. It was alot of fun to watch and the characters are totally amazing. With some difficulties at the beginning, read more

I watched this anime a while ago, but I remember how I felt about it.

--Story: 5--
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, 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
Both series are about master thieves & their attempts to steal high-value targets.
It's the same with the main characters traveling around, but the main character in this one is very adventurous while going in search of treasure with his sidekick; it's also very sad and can be very memorable at times.
master and weapon, solving different tasks (in soul eater for 'level up' purpose, in jing - mostly for fun), fantasy setting, a little similar art style. Both childish but interesting
Both are slice of life series and contain inklings of comedy. Each episode is a new adventure, a new lesson learned. They focus on what we should really treasure in our short life.

Even though the art and characters differ greatly, they have the same feel although the main characters of Hatenkou Yuugi are more emotionally invested with the people they encounter and develop their values and essentially themselves as the journey of life pushes them forward while, the Bandit King, Jin, appears to be a little more indifferent towards the side characters granted, he still ends up saving them, however, he doesn't mature as the series moves forward but this is because he has already developed his morals and does not waver in upholding them.
Both main characters are renounced as the best thieves in their own worlds and in both series, each episode provides an insight in their talent as thieves.
