This is a compact review based on all THREE seasons (78 episodes) of the Legend of Condor Hero series.

*Please note that only season 1 was voiced in Japanese but all 3 seasons have been Chinese dubbed.*

Before proceeding with the actual review of this anime, I would like to clarify the name of the story. Based on the original novel written in the late 1950s, this story should be called The Return of the Condor Heroes. But somewhere along the way, the Japanese decided to change the name to Legend of Condor Hero, which to add on to the confusion is the same name as read more

This is one of the most intense love stories out there in anime. You can really feel the immense depth of the love. This together with the abundance of strong female characters in the story makes it one of my favorite anime series. The only minor point is that there is a lot of silly martial art fighting going on.
The OP and ED are addictive.

Hotness: very intense forbidden and pure love.

Bishounen: The main lead is a cutie. He could have been more intelligent and more sensitive though.

For those who seek best designs, animation, soundtracks: leave. This is only a place for those who seek STRONG and WELL WRITTEN story over EVERYTHING else (definition of story inclusive of character descriptions + developments + interactions + storyboard).

Giving my full dedication to the whole 3 seasons , it makes me realize that one of the best story are not only to be told from Japan, for it can also be found from other countries as well. Comparing to the anime I have been watching lately, it is absolute no easy task to win over this in terms of story plot.

For anyone who does not know, this is anime adaptation of one of Chinese Classic love stories. Even though there is a lot of drama adaptations(by the Chinese), I find the anime appealing in some ways as it gives a simpler design of characters that have been overemphasize through the years.

Nonetheless, this anime is not without flaws.

The title is incorrect: Unless you read the original story, the actual title of it is actually Return of the Condor Heroes/Condor Heroes and Companions for direct Chinese translation. The title that it is currently named by refer to the prequel of this story
