Not a single review yet on this anime. I'm not surprised. I know how many people will watch this series regardless of a review, so let me inform you that my intention is really just to rake up and reflect on my childhood days as well as to contribute a little to this anime, (not to mention I was immensely bored as well) but don't underestimate this.

The Legend of Zorro. 'Another ripoff' is what you might think. That's not the case (atleast not completely). This is hardly the type of anime you'd come across, even while searching randomly. Nor is it something you would give read more

Many of us who have seen this series,will remember it as one of the first anime enjoyed as a child.

In terms of plot, it read more

Who? A cosplaying Shirota Yuu?? No, the cunning fox of Spanish California, the one and only Zorro!!

Does this outstanding way in announces a great adaptation? I want to answer yes and no. Let's elaborate more on exposition, beforehand. Some inexact points, you can notice in this read more

Kaiketsu Zorro is a series that I think most people will either love or hate. If you watched it when you were a child or you like children's series in general, you will probably find it entertaining. If you're expecting a faithful Zorro adaptation or a mature story, you'll most likely be disappointed.

First things first, the creators of this anime have taken some liberties with the characters and premise. The basics are the same - Diego de la Vega returns home to Spanish California because his father is worried about the state of things and the corruption of the army. Diego realises that he can't read more
