SYNOPSIS: THE LEGEND OF CONDOR HERO
Finally! A Kung Fu Anime series that is adapted from an actual kung fu literature classic! In this first volume of the seven volume series spanning 26 episodes, the main character, Yang Gor is taken to Chuen Jun Clan to learn kung fu. He agrees to go once he finds out the Chuen Jun Clan is close to the heart of his family. As an orphan he has often sought clues to his parents' past. Once there, he soon tires of the intense bullying by the clan's priests and escapes after a gruesome showdown. His encounter with the mysterious, beautiful but chillingly cold Dragon Girl
, who lives in the "Tomb of the living dead", will change his life forever. The hauntingly beautiful title song is performed by Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau
. Filled with spectacular fights, stunning kung-fu techniques and imaginative visuals, THE LEGEND OF CONDOR HERO
is a gripping visual feast for all ages!
