The manga series was followed by a sequel series known as ''King of Bandit Jing: Twilight Tales''; which does away with some of the sillier notes and replaces them with a slightly darker more mature tone - Jing himself seems to be a few years older at this point. The closest that the anime series got to a sequel was an OAV called ''"King of Bandit Jing: Seventh Heaven"'' which somehow managed to be even more incomprehensible than the main series was; this in turn was based on events covered in the ''fourth'' volume of the original manga.

The manga and anime are a series of short standalone stories written around the treasures sought after by Jing. He is usually accompanied in each adventure by a "Jing Girl", a female companion whose personal story arc is tied closely to the specific tale she appears in. Much of the appeal of the series comes from the fantastic and often surreal world that Jing lives in, bordering on the Expressionist style.

King of Bandit Jing is a series of short, usually disconnected stories starring the eponymous young boy. His partner is a wisecracking albatross named Kir who can transform into a WaveMotionGun by fusing with Jing's arm; this is the only supernatural power that Jing possesses. Although his reputation seems to extend throughout the universe of the series, many enemies underestimate Jing, [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller not expecting the "great King of Bandits" to be a "little kid"]].

Each story focuses a new treasure or object that Jing is seeking.
