(Legend of) Condor Hero Discussion

Okay, Live-eviL has released ep 15 of Condor Hero and it's an awesome episode. This show is really getting better with each ep!

Now, new rule, no more bitching about condor hero releases for at least 2 more weeks

Thank you so much~! I'm downloading it now. I'm *loving* Condor Hero so much! I can't believe I had never heard of it and I'm glad I randomly downloaded it one day. ^-^ Ooh I can't wait~

Okay, I won't bitch. I will however, shake my fits at the sky and wonder why oh why must the only episode we're likely to see for the next few weeks, end on such a cliffhanger?

I've been waiting for months to see Youka -- for lack of a good euphemism -- kick someone's ass, with his new martial arts techniques.

Does that count as bitching? If it does, I'll temper it with a little praise. Great job on this episode guys. Condor Hero is one of the rare animes that I can instantly get back into, even if I haven't seen an episode in a while.

On a side note, was Condor Hero ever released on DVD in Japan?

Just finished watching this episode and I gotta say it was awsome, words cannot explain what I felt when (well u could guess what im going to say but i dont wanna spoil it). In this episode I think I felt what Youka was feeling. Nooooo another two weeks again till the next release, but i'll wait quietly.

I just watched it. Unfortunately the animation for fights is just terrible. Must be a really tight budget.

Miscreant - Not that I had found. If a R2 version came out in DVD, it was likely a short run.

The anime, though, is available as a Cantonese dub on YesAsia.com, but they're no longer carrying the first 12 episodes. The last batch, episodes 13 through 26, is available.

Trust me, if there were any available better raws than the one L-E is using, I would have personally bought them the second they were available. :/

I think it's pretty good, considering it was done in 2001. usually older things pale in comparison when surrounded by the bleeding edge.

I really don't care too much about the animation quality I think the animation level is bearable hardly noticeable. Any fan of CH knows its the story that counts, the story is simply amazing.

Ah! Now I'm dying for the next episode~ I really wish it had been released on R2 DVD because I would *so* buy it. =/ All I can hope for now is maybe someone licensing it .:cough:. ..anywone? lol.

This was a pretty good episode I think. ^_^; I was waiting for him to start showing off his skills. But I cannot wait to see what happens next! X_X

I don't think Mongolians will appreciate you calling them that. The author never depicated the Mongol characters as particulary evil, they are "bad" because of political reasons(though they rape and pillage). Most the really evil individuals are Han Chinese and there are quite a few good Mongolians.

The Mongolians were the "good" guys till the end of The Legend Of The Condor Heroes when Ghengis Khan invaded The Song Empire, thus the Song people hated the Mongols, and this topic of hatred between these two nations will be further explored in the sequel, Heaven Sword And Dragon Sabre, where the distinction between good and bad guys are tackled.

..yeap...the animators are being payed minimum wage...result is a terrible fighting scenes...I curse my boss everyday (not outloud) and do as little as possible..So I can relate to the animators..But I have to say what the drawing lacks, the story makes up for it..overall a definitely addictive anime...

I guess there's little hope of finding the novels in English?

Mind you, I'm not bitching, but from time to time I have this dream where L-E pulls off another "You're Under Arrest 2nd Season Release" and releases all of Condor Hero in one day.

<sigh> Those were days. I even still remember poor Misuzu. Alas, I knew her well. A girl of infinite bandwidth

hehe!! The good old days!! ^_^;;;

But I think if the public found out we were hoarding CH eps, I'd probably receive death threats daily!

I am sorta confused on why Koko was acting all lovely dubby with Youka in this episode...those who have seen the Return of the Condor heroes tv drama or read the novels could answer this. Has Koko forgiven Youka for the incident/misunderstanidng in Ep 8?? Or has she found out the truth??
