Yes, I was stingy with the overall ranking. The story was wonderful, the ending.. could have been better. I would have loved it if we had some closure for Tanda and Balsa. I would have also loved to see Chagum as the Emperor. Other than that, this is a beautifully orchestrated masterpiece that needs to be as famous as, say one of Miyazaki's films. I loved every second of it. Matter of fact, I finished all 26 episodes in one day. Completely worth your time! If you're unsure, just give the first 5 or so eps I shot, and trust me you'll be hooked. 5 is an esaggeration, I think after 2 eps, one would be completely absorbed into the dynamics, politics, every-day ups and downs of New Yogo Empire! Enjoy!
