I personally have enjoyed what I have watched of Kirby because I am a huge Kirby fan at heart. There are adorable parts to each episode (in other words, everything Kirby does is cutecutecute), and, honestly, that's enough to keep me entertained at times.

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 read more

This is my first review on this site, so bear with me. I watched Kirby: Right Back at Ya when I was younger, so nostalgia might play a small factor in this review.

The series has its ups and downs. I personally dislike the dubbed version by 4Kids, since every other sentence out of a character's mouth is a corny pun, and somehow 4Kids managed to butcher an already stale story line from the original Japanese version.

If you expect complicated story lines and many plot twists, this show isn't for you. It's simple to follow, since it's a show aimed at kids. If you plan read more

Disclaiming begin. This is what you would call an initial review. It is my impression of this show after watching a good handful of episodes. This is a long series and if I am to be honest I don't think I will finish it. As a side note to all you nintendians out there I am not a fan boy nor am I a hater. This is just a review from a dude that watched the show. On to it we go.

This show is about as Saturday morning cartoon as it comes. It is cute as all hell and not in the traditional anime style read more

(This is my first review.)

I've always really liked the Kirby games, but in most of the games, there isn't really a story and you don't really get to know how the characters act, this show has an actual story and characters with personalities!

At first, I was worried that this show would ruin my opinion of the games, but it just provided some explanations for things and made me really like this whole franchise even more than I used to.

This show's story is mostly just that King Dedede tries to defeat Kirby using the Demon Beasts he orders from Holy Nightmare Co while messing read more
