As Mario is playing a late-night video game, the in-game character Princess Peach suddenly emerges from his TV set! Then, in the midst of the confusion, another invader from the game world follows: the evil Bowser, who quickly steals Peach away and returns from whence he came. After a series of events Mario and Luigi soon find their way to the Mushroom Kingdom for the adventure of a lifetime. With Hammer Bros and Piranha Plants around every corner, the duo must now find the Princess before Bowser takes her as his bride – and to do so they first must find three legendary items: the Mushroom of Strength, the Flower of Courage, and the Star of Invincibility.
Dont' get me wrong. Just because I rated this so low doesn't mean you shouldn't watch it. If you want some fire in a pan from 1980's Japan, here it is! I literally rated it 1987 because that's when it came out. The animation is 1980s The "story" is 1980s The "sound" is from a video game The "characters" exist The whole thing is just a series of one things led to another that could make some great 30 second Youtube clips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzlZy9zpw0Q Go ... enjoy it?
If you were looking for a big dramatic story detailing the back stories and personalities to the worlds most famous plumber thus adding greater depth to the Mario games, than you'll be disappointed. However if a fun and hilarious cartoon starring Mario and Luigi sounds like a good time to you, than you may like this anime. This anime loosely follows the original story of Mario, while taking a lot liberties with the original story. There aren't any huge revelations that adds to anything we already know about the characters, except for one twist at the end of the movie that never gets brought up in any future material ever again. But I found this show to be very entertaining and funny. This anime is a lot of fun. I recommend that you watch it if any of this sounds interesting to you, but do not expect anything than whats already there. Also the animation is really lacking but it isn't the worst animation ever. Despite my low scores I genuinely enjoyed this anime.
