On the planet Zora exist two societies: the Innocent, an advanced culture that lives in domed cities, and the Civilians, who are forced to live in the harsh desert wilderness. As dictated by the Innocent, any Civilian that commits a crime is forgiven if they are not brought to justice within three days.

Civilian Jiron Amos seeks revenge on the villainous outlaw Timp Sharon who murdered his parents, despite the fact the three-day period has long since passed. Hoping to get his revenge by stealing the mecha Xabungle from the merchant Carrying Cargo, Jiron teams up with a group of bandits known as the Sandrats and kidnaps Cargo's daughter Elchi, who ends up being sympathetic to his cause. Jiron's quest for revenge soon grows into a conflict much bigger—one that will eventually see the Civilians rise up against the Innocents' rule.

I just finished this anime yesturday, I'm surprised at how fast I devoured this anime!

For a 1982 anime, I must say the art is pretty decent and I got used to it quickly. The soundtrack is appealing and the characters design is alright. The voice acting is well done and the seiyuus are well choosen, but noisy it's at time. (a lot of screaming or loud voices but i'm sensitive so maybe that's just me) The sound quality is good for a 40 years old anime.

The characters are lovable and the personnalities are varied. The villains are also as lovable as the mains ...

Xabungle is a Tomino mecha anime that is fully light hearted, it does not take itself seriously. This is a good thing and makes it very enjoyable. There are roots to concepts seen in more serious Tomino mecha anime - like Zeta Gundam - within Xabungle, and the same beats are hit... but while this normally causes the show to feel repetitive if you've seen other mecha works of Tomino, Xabungle is different enough that it doesn't suffer at all from this. I've seen a lot of Tomino mecha anime and while almost all of them are good, they do hit on the same characterization, ...

Xabungle is a mish-mash of genres combining westerns, mecha action, sci-fi, and comedy focused on a young man named Jiron Amos who partners up with a gang of sand bandits and the crew of the landship known as the Iron Gear to seek out the whereabouts of the murderer of his family named Timp Sharon. Within the world of Xabungle, mechs called Walker Machines are used by landships to combat one another and there is a three-day rule in place where all crimes have to be resolved within that time or else they are pardoned. In addition, there exist two living beings within the series: ...
