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.

This is not a place for those who seek best design, animation, soundtrack. This anime only portrays more on a well written story over everything else (including character developments, interactions, story flow).

After dedicating myself to all 3 seasons , the anime has played a role in showing the realization that best story are not only to be told from Japan, for it can also be found from other countries as well. It is not a simple task to win over this in terms of story plot.

My review of this anime series (all seasons):

Story S1 + S2 10/10

The art, sound, and even action sequences were nothing more than mediocre, but the story is where this anime really outshines so many others. It is true that it is a little on the older side, and the animation quality is definitely not the best. Even so, I was so enthralled in the love story between the two main characters that everything else hardly mattered.

Still, I would strongly suggest watching the English Subbed version of this anime. I happened upon the dubbed version, and the voices were a little hard to listen to, so for this, I would say the subbed version may come read more
