King of Bandit Jing

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

King of Bandit Jing, which is known as Jing: King of Bandits in Japan, is an anime series based on a manga series by Yuichi Kumakura.

The main character of the series is a boy named Jing, and he calls himself Jing, the Bandit King. While Jing's reputation is known far and wide, many of the enemies he encounters don't expect the bandit king to be a kid. Jing is dashing and has exceptional skills, but he's also rather laid-back. A signature piece of Jing's wardrobe is a flowing orange trenchcoat. During the series, Jing is seen carrying around a crystal that is embedded with a picture of a woman's head with long hair; however, the importance of this crystal is never explained.

Jing travels the world with his sidekick, Kir (a feisty bird with a big mouth and is greedier than Jing). Even though Kir is a bird, he likes to chase after human women. However, Kir is constantly being rejected; but this tends to be more due to his manners and personality, and not so much due to the fact that he's a bird. When Kir fuses to Jing's right arm, Kir can fire a large ball of energy that is called "Kir Royale."

The only other recurring character in the series is Postino. He's a mail carrier who travels on a motorcycle, and tends to show up right on cue when Jing is in need of help.

Even though Jing travels all over the world, the stories that take place seem to have a slight formula to them. Each story includes a treasure or object that Jing is seeking, a woman or girl accompanies him on the quest for the item, and an enemy who is either protecting what Jing wants to steal or steals the object before Jing does.

After watching some of the English dub of King of Bandit Jing, I feel that the series is not meant for very young viewers. Personally, I would recommend the King of Bandit Jing series to anime viewers who are 13 or 14 years of age and older.
