This is a compact review based on all THREE seasons (78 episodes) of the Legend of Condor Hero series.

*Please note that only season 1 was voiced in Japanese but all 3 seasons have been Chinese dubbed.*

Before proceeding with the actual review of this anime, I would like to clarify the name of the story. Based on the original novel written in the late 1950s, this story should be called The Return of the Condor Heroes. But somewhere along the way, the Japanese decided to change the name to Legend of Condor Hero, which to add on to the confusion is the same name as read more

For those who seek best designs, animation, soundtracks: leave. This is only a place for those who seek STRONG and WELL WRITTEN story over EVERYTHING else (definition of story inclusive of character descriptions + developments + interactions + storyboard).

Giving my full dedication to the whole 3 seasons , it makes me realize that one of the best story are not only to be told from Japan, for it can also be found from other countries as well. Comparing to the anime I have been watching lately, it is absolute no easy task to win over this in terms of story plot.

This is one of the most intense love stories out there in anime. You can really feel the immense depth of the love. This together with the abundance of strong female characters in the story makes it one of my favorite anime series. The only minor point is that there is a lot of silly martial art fighting going on.
The OP and ED are addictive.

Hotness: very intense forbidden and pure love.

Bishounen: The main lead is a cutie. He could have been more intelligent and more sensitive though.

Both are set in ancient china and feature martial arts action. Both adventure through various places and grow stronger after various battles and training. If you liked one I'd highly recommend watching the other.

Both are set in ancient china and feature martial arts action. Both are centered around male heroes who get stronger through battle and training. If you liked Hero Tales I'd highly recommend Condor Hero

Similar star crossed lovers plot with a dash of sexual assault to liven it up.
