Review Wendy & Pirates | Wendy, John & Michael | Peter, John & Michael | Wendy & Lost Boy
In contrast to the other WMT anime, this is a very free adaptation of J.M.Barrie's classic. However it's colourful and a lot of fun, with comically nasty pirates and a playful Peter and adventurous Lost Boys. As one would expect of a Japanese adaptation, the girls, ie Wendy, Tiger Lily, and Luna (the latter not in the book) are all strong, sensible characters, with Wendy cast firmly in the role of Little Mother.
