Wild Heroes starts with Kibo returning to his town as he gets transferred. Back in the day, he was a member of a gang. With originally six members, his gang used to rule the neighborhood. Be it 100 or 200, no one had either the courage or the strength to beat his group. One day Kibo had to leave the battle ground and no one knew the reason behind his act. Everyone thought that he was terrified of his enemies, but the reason was entirely different.

The actual reason behind him leaving the fight was he had to save his mother’s marriage. The audience will become aware of it by the end of the first episode. Kibo faced his old enemy group who was holding a young girl hostage. This was against the rules old gangs had which included not harming the children or the women.

Kibo saved Hikari (the young girl). She had no recollection of who she was and why she was kidnapped by the gangsters. All of this pointed towards that she was either someone with influential parents or one with parents from the enemy gang.

At the end of the first episode, a police officer comes and takes Hikari from Kibo and his group claiming that they’ll return her to her home. In reality, he wasn’t taking her back but was returning her to the exploiters. Hikari had left something hidden at her home and everyone was searching for it.

It would be interesting to know about the identity of this girl and why an old gang reconciled to save her from the goons. Her coming back to Kibo’s life was good because she reunited his old group and the misunderstandings were cleared. We’re back with the ‘Who are you?’ group.

In my opinion, Japanese anime is much better than their series because they at least know how to wrap up a story in 20 minutes and how to keep the audience engaged. Wild Heroes is an average series that proves how the Japanese creators are still lagging in terms of making series.

What was with “Who are you? I am myself” rants? These were cringe moments that formed a part and the basis of the series. The majority of this series is predictable and you don’t need to be too versed with shows to know what will happen next.

The first episode tells us a lot about what is going to happen in the rest of the series. There are a total of ten episodes with a duration of 45 to 50 minutes each which makes you sleepy as you approach the next episode.

The actors in this show haven’t done a plaudit job. Japanese series have a lot to learn from Korean series as the latter knows a sure-shot formula to succeed. Wild Heroes is a series fit for those who enjoy watching fights between gangs i.e. like action. You might get disappointed as the action department too fails in multiple scenes and scenarios.

Final Score – [4/10]
