"Animation masterpiece"

If you are a fan of anime/animation then you need to get this series. If you like adventure, twists and turns, nasty villians and wonderful heroes, then you need to get this series. If you have kids and you want them to watch something that's enertaining AND educational, should get this series.

“The Mysterious Cities of Gold” is a certainty for one of the top, if not THE top, spot in animated series from the last 30 years. It follows the adventure of orphan boy, Esteban, from Spain to the New World in the time of the Conquistadores, searching for his father who he believes may still be alive and is linked in some way to ‘The Mysterious Cities of Gold’. He is joined in his adventures by great friends and companions, and encounters nasty villians and dangers along the way.

The plot is a fantastic piece of writing and engages you throughout the whole 39 episodes. It includes incidents, places and people from reality and it is through this that the educational part of the series comes through. At the end of each episode, some aspect of the story is highlighted in a short, fascinating snippet. There are also great twists and plots and superb character development.

I cannot recommend this series enough, go ahead and treat yourself!

"One of the BEST 80's Cartoon Shows EVER"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

This series brings anyone back to their roots with a great story line. I used to love this show but was sad when I thought I would never find it again. However when I found this I couldn't believe my luck. It is exactly what I hoped for if not more.


One of the best-loved anime series of all time, Mysterious Cities of Gold developed a huge cult following when airing on ABCTV in Australia, and finally comes to DVD in a 6 disc collectors edition.

In the tradition of Miyazaki's Spirited Away, the series features riveting characters, fantastic animation, and a magnificent plot that starts in Barcelona in 1532, and follows a young Spanish orphan names Esteban as he treads the path of the setting sun to Eldorado in search of his father and the Mysterious Cities of Gold.

When Esteban accompanies a party of Spaniards searching for gold in the New World, he is joined on his quest by Zia, an Inca girl kidnapped from her family who is also searching for her father, and Tao, the last descendant of the sunken empire of Hiva. Aboard the magnificent Golden Condor their adventures take them through an Inca empire under Spanish attack, to the vast Amazon forest, and the land of the Mayas. Resisting attack from tyrants and traitors, their goal is not gold but a long-awaited reunion with their loved ones.

This acclaimed animation classic is presented here in its entirety, all 39 digitally remastered episodes in one must-have DVD collection!
