In 1625, the young D'Artagnan leaves his village in Gascony to embark for Paris with his grandparents' blessings, taking only his father's sword and a letter of introduction. Seeking audience with Tréville, Captain of the Musketeers of the Guard and his late father's comrade, the poor nobleman aims to become a great hero in the service of King Louis XIII.

The young adventurer is astonished by the massive size of Paris, but also overwhelmed. He wanders the city streets, befriending a young orphan named Jean. However, he also ends up offending three of the Musketeers of the Guard: Porthos, Aramis, and Athos. Confronted by the Parisian guards over their illegal dueling, D'Artagnan and the Musketeers fend off five of Cardinal Richelieu's soldiers, and the four of them quickly become friends.

The four new comrades set off to stop the Cardinal from starting war between England and France, and protect the image of Queen Anne d'Autriche, the wife of Louis XIII. But what will be the cost of their efforts?

What can I say... It's my favorite anime!
There's adventure, action, suspense, romance, drama, comedy - it has it all. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made my heart beat faster. I think this is why I love this series so much: it's extremely complete.

Although it mixes several genres, the main one is definitely adventure. Almost every single episode has some exciting experience, where the musketeers (particularly D'Artagnan) are exposed to danger and have to take risks and show their bravery. It's really impossible to get bored while watching it.

The characters are awesome. Even though my ...

When i talk with people about Anime Sanjuushi, everybody thinks i am talking about Wanwan Sanjuushi, the same story but the characters are animals. When i compare both i feel Anime Sanjuushi is a much superior version with a deep human touch, this anime is funny and cartoonish but it can also be sad and surprising.
