Very beautiful anime, akin to Miyazaki's work
8 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

If you like Miyazaki's anime work, you will probably enjoy "Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox". The story is the only thing you might have qualms with, as it is clearly not so well worked as the animation, but it is certainly not bad. The Korean legends are interesting. The only things that did not really have a purpose are the aliens. Yes, you read that right: aliens. Just replace those with friendly forest spirits and it's all good.

Bottom line: a very well done anime, emotional, but not too much, complete with evil and good characters and, indeed, shady ones (you will understand the pun once you watch it). Again, if you like beautiful animation and childhood stories and legends, you will love this film.
