    Very, very interesting
    This show is actually very unique. The voice acting is phenomenal and the music that accompanies it is good as well. However, this show is going to be a hit or miss. I don't see it being any other way. This show is essentially an anime, but uses dolls and stages, etc etc. But the fact of the matter is dolls are dolls, and no matter how detailed, a doll will remain a doll. This reason alone is why ...

    A Unique Experience in Puppetry.
    This show though sometimes odd in its machinations is a true work of art, employing puppetry for all faucets of its story telling.

    The story itself while a tad plain, is actually unique too in "JUST" how plain it is. The villains and heroes are all very rudimentary and standard. Even when they play out joining sides with one another to meet a common end, they are still in a sense tropes. ...

    Favorite anime of all time
    I seriously loved this show! I went in not knowing what to expect and came out craving more! The voice acting, fluid movements, as well as the animations all make this show a worthwhile watch! It was easy for me to forget that characters are puppets and not animations or graphics!

    I would seriously recommend this to anyone looking for a new show to watch! This has become my favorite anime of ...

    I never thought I'd love puppets this much
    I just watched the movie, and it had been so long since I'd seen the first season that I had forgotten just how good it was. I went into it thinking, "Oh yeah, that puppet show was pretty good, right?", and by the halfway point I was thinking, "Holy crap, this is only halfway over and I don't know how it could get even better."

    That basically sums up the entire series. Don't let the ...

    Puppets But Not Muppets
    Puppets. They seem like an immediate turn off. And it isn't like the title, Thunderbolt Fantasy, helps at all at making it look less ridiculous and cheesy. Regardless, you have to be a fool to not give this show a try. I passed over it myself at first but came back to it because it had good ratings. Thank goodness I did.
    Unlike the name of the show, the story is thrilling and complex. The ...

    Thunderbolt Fantasy 5 STARS
    This is quite a unique series the only thing that keeps me watching were the dialogs, character's and the special effects while they fight.
    I would recommend watching this series but some people just can't stand puppetry and some of the fight scenes might be hard to follow.
    My favourite episode would still be the first one from epsidoe 1 then the second favourite one would be along the middle ...

    I never saw puppetry But now i want more
    Im not one to write reviews but omg i want more. The story is feels like a retelling of a classic but at the same time its not. It has its tropes but none that you can truly get mad at. The voice acting is great and the puppetry has that wow factor. i really cant recommend this enough. if you like action adventure and a great story just watch.

    not gonna lie im like fan girling over here and ...

    Definitely Worth a Try - Full of Surprises
    The art will definitely put some people off. Do not let that discourage you however. If you try it and really cannot stand the art style and effects, at least you have experienced a new world today. Any open minded person should at least give it a try.

    Some people complained about the absence of facial expression really makes it harder to read the characters. I do agree. However, as you only ...

    Really Pleasantly Surprised
    I rarely review shows, but wanted to do so here so that someone who might not have decided to watch it saw all the positive reviews.

    I almost passed on this as I figured CGI enhanced puppets weren't something I was interested in watching. But Wuxia TV shows were really popular when I was I child on TV. This is simply a modern version and lots of fun!

    The CGI isn't overdone and doesn't ...
