Story 10/10

You all probably know the original book from Robert Louis Stevenson "The Treasure island". Well, as this anime is based on the book, you would assume that the story is pretty much the same. You're right, it is, except that in my opinion it's a little bit...more exiting. Those who have read the book know that the pirates didn't find the treasure because Ben Gunn had already dug it out and hidden at another place. It's completely different in the anime. Here, is the secret of the treasure much more puzzling, an amazing quest left by the famous captain Flint. So, read more

This is Treasure Island, the classic book brought to life in anime.

This is one of the best classics i can possibly think of. Staying really close to the story it really brings the story to life for me. The show executes the atmosphere greatly too. The music,background noises and sound effects are well selected and timed to create some of the most dramatic and lighthearted moments i can imagine.

The character portrayal of long john silvers is a very lasting impression. It really shows the duality of his character while maintaining his opposing force threw the entire series. Jim is depicted a bit annoyingly tho, a read more
