An adventure action animated drama produced based on "Toho Kaiko" which was aired on NHK in 79-80. "Marco" was born as a jeweler of Venetia, but my father who had been trading with the East has been leaving home for a long time, while my mother is a different person. I was brought up by my aunt's hand. And when Marco 15 years old, my father will return home as a messenger again under the original Fabyli. Marco who initially had a confounding feeling to me for the first time decides to leave the East with his father to the word that he can become a man who can cut out his fate of his aunt. In 1271, Marco travels with his father and uncle to the east.

This work is an animated piece made in accordance with the silk road boom of the time, finished as an adventure story drama based on the adventurer Marco Polo's "Toho Kaiko". NHK broadcasts "Silk Road" in each feature, but this work is made according to the adventure format like "Journey to the West" based on the information obtained by the interview.

The hero's "Marco" is not strong in strength, but it is a straight colored type of hot-blooded boy and there were somewhat drunk, but the roots were in front of a man with a good feeling. The personality was somewhat similar by the way the facial expression looked like ancient development. Takashi Toyama is the same voice actor. My father `Nico Roso 'was a dundey calm deposit type and my uncle' Nicolo 'was a pretender. The former king `Fira Rai 'was drawn as an arrogant king who understands Marco in this work. As you know, because it is a former culprit of the former prime minister, there is only a bad image in Japan, but here it was quite a great presence. Marco 's friend' s Mongolian soldier `Kogatai 'and Hamalek' s Sharif. 'It was nice to have a small boat boy and a' Shaumi 'acting together with the second half Marco. In women, `Cocaine Princess' with the Marco one line in the latter half was nice and quiet but I liked Kogatai's sister's innocent 'Orge' more.

Although the story development is made in accordance with the actual Marco.Poro travel notes, it is drawn as a moving original story as an adventurous act theater. "Marco" who went on a journey to the east according to my father and uncle at the age of 17 met a variety of people in Central Asia through various towns, encountered various events and became gradually growing through experience The deployment was very good. It is very nice feeling that it is an anime version of the Silk Road world that shows various costumes and cultural differences and people's living in various places. From the end I do not feel that I have entwined elements of "Sindbat" and "Journey to the West", but there was a magnificent mystery and romance.

As this adventure is very spectacular and full of romance, the story is also moving, many things still think that it is still the best adventure work, so the evaluation is [highest!]. At NHK, the tape of this work is unknown, so it can not be re-broadcasted or DVD, so it is regrettable that we can not see this work so far. I believe in the possibility of finding and are waiting.

When I was a junior high school student, I was crazy.
It is the best work I have seen.
From the beginning to the end seems to be seeing beautiful high-quality scrolls, I remember being sacred time for me.
And there were many irresponsible stories, which together with the history of the Silk Road of the Ryukyu Ryuhua, was also delivering an unspeakable taste.
Kei Ogura 's album is still listening well now.
I like "travel preparation again".

I would like to have a rebroadcast by all means.

Marco Polo Adventure! It is nostalgic. I was looking forward to it every week.
The Chinese version of the ending song "If it is a dream," is not it? Ogura Yoshi Complete. Single Collection. It is in 1977-1988.

When I was a junior high school student, I was crazy. We interweaving live action and animation and talk about history, its talking point, it was awesome.
When the bizarre warrior, Phantom Chapandou comes out and finally leaves, the scene of saying "Let's meet with a small priest, somewhere else in the sky" to Marco Polo from horse is still forgotten not.
Every time the ending was always flowing, I could not do anything for a while, and I was soaked up as a buddy.
I am beating while listening to Ogura Katsura's CD "Marco Polo's Adventure" including that ending.
By the way, I really want to hear the ending that Marco has changed since I reached China,
I do not understand the title and it is not included in the CD. Does anyone know?
I remember that it was the lyrics "Anything, any person, if it is a dream".

I remember it a little.
I see. Did not you rebroadcast?
I feel like the last seemed vain.

It seems that it is relatively good-quality work in the animation program which was once aired on NHK, but it is regrettable that it has not been rebroadcast. "Oga Monogatari" does not seem to be able to rebroad now, and "Captain Future" has only one rebroadcast, is not it? What on earth is it !?
