Folktales from Japan (Furusato Saisei Nippon no Mukashi Banashi)

(?? episodes)

What’s it about ?

Exactly what it says on the tin. Each episode is comprised of three different (and unrelated) folktales.

Production Values

Very low ; the artsyle is deliberately naive, and the animation takes every possible shortcut.

Overall Impression

Well, this is definitely a collection of Japanese folktales. Perfectly alright for what it is, but I’m clearly 20 years to old to have any interest in this beyond the novelty of the first episode. I’ll pass.

I've been kinda blogging about anime for years... but mostly on forums (such as's Tangency) and other sites. This site is an archive for all that stuff, just in case.
