In 1992, Japan and India were celebrating 40 years of strong diplomatic ties. A part of the celebration was this project. Which was worked on by Japanese & Indian animation studios alike and based off of the Hindu epic, Ramayana. 

I'll be honest, I'm not super familiar with the epic. As such, I probably won't notice if the film gets some details wrong. You'll have to wait for the anime versions of The Iliad, Beowulf & Journey to the West to see me get into heavy scholarly detail about adaptation differences.


We open with a countryside being terrorised by demons. Or maybe they're just British imperials in read more

It's an epic story based on the Indian epic poem written by Valmiki(Ratnakkardah).Lord Ram is beleived to be 7th incarnation of Indian God Vishnu.The joureny starts when Lord Ram was just 15 and the devil King Ravan was at peak of his powers.The character shown By Lord Ram is definitely one to be thrive towards.The story is well written and every character is important.Story just doesn't revolve around Ram,Sita,Lakshman and Ravan.There is subtle importance of all the characters.Sound effects considering the technology present are very good.It is overall very good story with happy but incomplete ending.Overall it is worth watching once in a read more

The art is somewhat outdated but still very fluid and life like. The fight scenes are greatly choreographed and animated.

The characters are greatly adapted and complex. almost no main characters moral in this anime is truly black or white. The characters are read more

This is the first anime that I've ever watched. I didn't event know that it was anime until recently. I've re-watched it many a times, for me at least, the story never gets boring.

The animation is beautiful, the war choreography is still one of the best that I have watched. Bringing the mythical epic to animation was a great task which was beautifully done by the animation studios and the artists involved. The soundtrack is just amazing. I think this is the only anime which has a Sanskrit dub including the songs.

During lockdown, due to re-telecast of the live action drama of the read more

Famous Actors You Didn't Realize Voiced Anime Dubs

Sometimes anime lands some big names to star in its English dubs. From Patrick Stewart to Bryan Cranston: these are the big name actors who make an appearance in anime… or at least, their voices do.
