Ta-chan is the king of jungle. He was abandoned in savanna, and has been raised by a chimpanzee, Etekichi. He has a dearest wife, Jane who used to be a top model in New York, but now she looks... Anyway, to protect animals from poachers, Ta-chan is fighting against them with his disciple, Pedro, and a master of Chinese martial arts, Ryo.

This anime is based on the manga with the same title; it begins as a comical parody of Tarzan. The first several episodes are comedies, but the rest of the series consists of (rather) serious episodes.

I'm surprised there's not a review for this already, given how despite how obscure it is, this series is still within the top 2000 on this site.

Tar-chan is an obscure battle Shonen that barely receives any notice within not just the anime community, but even in Japan, with it's sole appearance outside of it's own anime/manga being it's titular protagonist being playable in two Jump crossover games. This lack of popularity would have you thinking this series isn't that good at all, wouldn't it? Well, you'd be wrong.

Tar-chan's plot, like many Jump series, is one that transitions from a comedic series into a battle read more

*First review and mild spoilers please bear with me*

So Jungle no Ouja Taa-chan or Jungle King Tar-chan for the English title is an anime that aired in the 90s though the original source material, the manga started publishing in the 80s and got lots of more volumes than the anime only covered with it's 50 episodes length which to me is a good thing anyways given how awful this anime is but I'm sure my rating for this spoiled it already, yes I did end up hating it and let me explain my reasons as to why.


Basically there is none but I didn't read more
