This anime I remember as a child but all I have ever seen it in was in English. The display photo made me remember that I loved these videos as a child and I know now they are probably really hard to find.
The reason my review rating is so low even though I enjoyed this classic work is just that. This is a classic, but it has definitely aged, the sound, art, and character quality when relating to newer productions makes this work seem really shabby.Though as I watch it I know that I would definitely fall in love with it again and again read more
