In the year 1532, a Spanish orphan named Esteban joins a party of Spaniards in their search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in the New World, hoping to find his father. He is joined on his quest by Zia, an Incan girl, and Tao, the last descendant of the sunken empire of Mu ("Hiva" in the English dub). The series is a mix of ancient South American history, archaeology, and science fiction. Esteban, Zia, and Tao encounter the Mayans, Inca, and Olmecs during their journey. The characters discover many lost technological wonders of the Mu Empire, including a solar powered ship (the Solaris) and The Golden Condor, a huge solar-powered would-be ornithopter (mechanical bird), capable of traveling considerable distances under the sun's power alone. They are constantly pursued by antagonists Gomez and Gaspard, who are also in search of the Cities of Gold. It is the 16th century. From all over Europe great ships sale west to conquer the New World, the Americas. These men eager to seek their fortune, to find new adventures in new lands. They long to cross uncharted seas and discover unknown countries. To find secret gold on a mountain trail high in the Andes. They dream of following the path of the setting sun that leads to Eldorado, and the Mysterious Cities Of Gold.

You know what, I don't think I ever saw the last episode either.
I just started watching them again on streaming site 'Crunchyroll', I might have to stop and wait for this box set instead as I can justify buying it at this sort of price.

I'm almost certain it will be.

Yeah they did find the CoG, the two medalians were used on the statue's nipples to open the gate, I remember it well, lol.
#21
i boght the hmv exclusive one and got it a week ago, my kids think i'm mad because they prefer scooby doo! i was also lucky that when i bought the hmv one i was entered into a competition and i got a original photo cell along with another 4 or so winners. was thinking of sticking the whole thing on ebay and seeing how much the film cell adds to the value.
great cartoon though
