However, this anime is obviously geared towards kids for the most part and thus can get pretty annoying at times (for instance, how many times will Kirby be told to inhale an enemy he *can't* inhale?). The storyline is nonexistent at worst and bland at best, although the plotline regarding the origins of Kirby is somewhat interesting.
I would watch this anime if you're a fan of Kirby; I would also like to say that you can easily jump into the middle of the series to watch various episodes without having to know a lot of background, which is a plus for me. read more

Story 5/10: Once you see the first episode, the story is pretty much self explanatory. It's mediocre at best to say the least, can get quite cheesy sometimes but still somewhat enjoyable.
Art 7/10: The art is rather good, the characters are well drawn and there is also some 3D animation thrown in which may get a little annoying but it's not terrible. The backgrounds and everything else seem decent but just don't expect anything amazing.
Characters 9/10: The characters are great, likable and somewhat well developed, I'll briefly describe some of the main ones.
Kirby - Although he is a baby, Kirby has the power to suck up any enemy's powers and use their own powers against them. Aside from battling, Kirby loves to eat, sleep, and be around his friends.
King Dedede - He's the bad guy that will do anything to get rid of Kirby. Why? He is actually jealous on how many people like Kirby. He purchases monsters from a company called Nightmare Enterprises (Holy Nightmare in the Japanese version) so that they can attack Kirby. King Dedede lives in his own castle along side with Escargon and other characters.
Meta Knight - He is known to be quite mysterious since he works for King Dedede but even so, he knows quite a lot about Kirby. He likes to push Kirby to his limits so that Kirby becomes more aware of what he is capable of. He is also the last of the Star Warriors that remained long ago on long battles against Nightmare. He usually doesn't like to get involved into any situation until the last minute so that he makes sure Kirby is prepared to fight any unexpected monsters. Overall, he's a smart and skilled warrior that knows how to get things done.
Keep in mind, there are some characters that never appeared in the Kirby games but they seem to fit in well.
Voice/Music 8/10: The voice acting in both the Japanese and English dub are well done. The music in the Japanese version was actually better than the English version. If you seen the English dubbed version you'll always get introduced to the annoying Kirby intro and it's also in the credits while the Japanese version is the complete opposite.
Overall 8/10: Although Kirby: Right Back At Ya! is quite good, it does have it's flaws but even so, it's one of the better cartoon shows Nintendo has created. It would have been better if 4Kids didn't get their hands on this show since a few scenes were taken out/edited and this hurt the show from what it originally had. If you're new to Kirby then this show wouldn't probably be a good start but if you're a fan of Kirby and have not seen the show, it's worth giving it a try. read more
