The show’s appeal is drawn from three main sources: the 80’s anime feel, English dub, and the tournament story arcs. First, I’ll say this anime has withstood time pretty well. The artwork doesn’t feel inferior or subpar when compared to contemporary shows. Instead, it gives off a very 80’s vibe. A lot of that has to do with the clothes and hairstyles characters wear, the shades of blue and purple used in the background, and vocabulary used.
