  • More Thunderbolt Fantasy please!
    I have to be honest: Thunderbolt Fantasy is what brought me to Crunchyroll; it's why I have a subscription. I love it. The characters, the writing, the music, it's all good. I've been following the show since seeing the trailer for the first season on Youtube and haven't looked back.

    More please!

  • If you hate puppetry like I do? Give this a shot!
    Puppets, normally no thanks, but after reading some reviews I decided to give it a try anyways since I'm stuck on finding new good anime series to watch.
    Seen about 2 episodes when writing this, and here is a short summary:
    Kickoff action packed startup with a promising story filled with decent put-together-fights combined with some nice music and good dialogue by actors like Yami from Black ...

  • Love the show! Been watching since Season 1!
    Randomly came upon this show way back and just couldn't stop watching it! I love the time put into the story, puppets and just making it all come together in a action packed flashy sword fighting wuxia vibe! Whenever I get the opportunity I always suggest this show to friends. Great thanks to everyone who put time into this whole show! A live action would be so good!

  • It takes some time....
    It does take a bit of time to get used to the puppet work, and the cut-edits that would make Michael Bay wet himself but there is a decent story that unfolds and is expanded upon in Season 2. The movies also fill in some gaps that I was dying to know, although, they could have been left as a mystery and still would have been fine. A lot of good work was put into these sets and the behind the ...

  • I finally understand why puppets used to exist
    With the digital age, puppet entertainment became a thing of the past and I, including many others, looked down on puppets.

    But this show proves that with dedication, skills and love to the craft, one can produce something entertaining and amazing.

    Story: 10/10
    Art: NA
    Costume: 10/10
    Puppets: 8/10 (Puppets still feel weird to me despite everything so i didn't give it a 10)
    Music: ...

  • WTF......................
    I found the puppets strange at first. But they grew on me over time. I'm not sure the show would work as well if it was animated.

    The music, story, voice acting, characters, over the top CGI all create a fantasy epic that I couldn't help but want more of. I've watched everything from this series and will almost certainly watch any new releases in the future.

    Beautifully presented fantasy anime puppetry.
    Thunderbolt Fantasy is a pretty special show. Is it an anime? That depends how you define it, but I think it takes the best of fantasy anime and presents in an original new way: Taiwanese Puppetry. It is pretty amazing what the studio was able to make the puppets do, things i honestly didnt know was possible. It is a visual treat, there's nothing else like it. The story follows a group of ...

  • Despite being puppet show, more anime than most animes
    This is pretty great show with full of villains, heroes and Han Solo -type antihero, and you're never quite sure which is which. Glorious wuxia fights, keikakus within keikakus, all around good fun for people who like fabulous fighters fabulously fighting, and classic but well executed plot. Recommended to all people who like really well done classic anime tropes and/or beautifully made ornate ...

  • Not anime but true fantasy with hand puppets!
    Puppets! Is this anime? No!

    Do I care? No!

    This is a wonderful series. You do have to have a mindset for watching puppets and if you can't make that jump than this show is not for you.

    Fun and cheesy for someone who grew up on Gerry Anderson
    I am impressed. Love the set design and the costumes.

    Currently watching the second season.
