Classification WMT
Review I've only seen two or three episodes in monochrome, and one in colour, but my first impression is that it's rather undistinguished. The animation is not so different from the other earlier series, and the story looks lively. There is some fun, for instance,when Huck Finn tries to capture a wild pig. It may appeal if you like watching laddish adventures, but there is plenty of other anime that offers similar pleasures.
