    I Found This Entertaining
    I found this quite interesting and entertaining. The storytelling was good and carried well over the 40 episodes. Great opening and a great conclusion. The music wasn't the best, but it was ok. The characters were quite well done from both drawing and in characterization. The animation was ok for not being current. Overall I would recommend this to those who like the sci-fi genre. It's got aliens, ...

  • An animated scifi masterpiece that everyone needs to watch
    This anime is based on a french scifi series which started in 1967 and just finished in 2010. This is an all time classic. The plot and storyline from each episode is well developed. The major different from this and a Japanese anime is the character development. The main characters are loveable and totally different from your standard cookie cutter japanese hero/heroine.

  • If he may know which way to go;
    Hard work went into this show so it's unfortunate that the outcome should be an unwatchable mess. It starts by ripping off 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court' and then abruptly switches to trying to emulate 'Outlaw Star'. No arc is established to help frame events, the universe is badly explained, the characterization changes suddenly to suit the requirements of the plot. Add to that ...

  • Refreshing & Nostalgic
    The animation is great, if you like this style. Ditto for the voices.

    The only con I can think of about this show is that it was more episodic than storyline driven - but the story is there, and no episode is worth skipping.

    OK for kids, takes a bit to get into for the rest of us.
    OK, this is a fun little show. If I were to compare it to Japanese animated shows, I probably would have rated it lower. This is more of a Saturday morning cartoon. For what it is, I think it is pretty great. It is NOT a Japanese Anime and it will not tickle everybody.

    From what I've read, it is originally French cartoon and this version has an Australian (?) English dub. The dub is terrible, ...

    it was comedic and entertaining
    I really enjoyed watching this. I love the classic feel its funny, action packed, and it feels like something that came from the mind of a true inspirational genius and i thought personally time travel was explained differently and in a way that could keep you guessing. Albert certainly choose articulate times to intervene and the main characters keep you guessing they are very much so in love and ...

  • Very good adaptation of the French comic book
    It is probably not possible to make a perfect animated adaptation of this most excellent French comic book series, unless Peter Jackson picks it up with a large budget.
    But this anime series does a very good job to keep many elements we love from the comic books. Foremost the cast of alien creatures is done very well, from what I have seen so far.
    The comic books audience was from young to ...

  • Saturday morning cartoon meets interesting plotline
    I am surprised that this is on Crunchyroll - but not unhappy. This is one of those that I would recommend since it is somewhat different than everything else currently. You just have to put up with: the corny music, fail transitions, irritating decision making by the characters, and of course the somewhat antiquated animation (though it's interesting in and of itself). Oh, also the English (is it ...
