(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

So I'm gonna be quite blunt here, I've watched Kirby Right Back at Ya maybe two and a half times. Once fully in English & about halfway through in Japanese. Based upon a popular video game series by Nintendo & Hal Laboratory, the anime did it's own strange adaptation based upon the video games. There's one thing to note about the anime also, most notable the English dubbing company. Apparently, while some people claim that 4kids is the butcher of all decent anime *cough Sonic X, *cough One Piece.* With the Kirby anime, honestly to me it's not all that different from English to Japanese. read more

Story/Characters (7/10): This show is a show aimed at kids. It has an easy an simple plot that anyone can follow. Kirby, a pink (alien?) star warrior crash lands on the planet of Pop Star. There he befriends the citizens of Cappy Town and defends them from monsters that their king, King Dedede, sends to kill Kirby.
The characters are very likable. Tiff and Toff are Kirby's best friends who will always look out for him. King Dedede is a funny yet foolish villain whose reasons for antagonising Kirby are like that of Lex Luthor's hatred of Superman. And lastly, Meta Knight, the coolest character in read more

This is my first review, so it may not be that good.

Kirby: Right Back at Ya! is a decent anime, which is pretty different to the games, despite them being about Kirby. The anime has lots of characters and monsters that do not appear in the games, so if you want to watch something with lots of different monsters, then this is for you.

The story of Kirby: Right Back at Ya! is ok. The problem with the story is that once you have watched the first few episodes, then it is just like that for the rest of the anime; King Dedede and read more
