Did You Know?

Trivia

The director originally wanted to cast Pierre Coffin (voice actor of the minions from Despicable Me) for the lemmings, but couldn't afford him due to going overbudget on the animation. See more »

Goofs

Polar bears can hold their breath underwater for less than three minutes, making the ending scene where Norm is drowning useless, because Norm could have just pushed the bars away(because he weighs 300 pounds) and swam up to surface. See more »

Quotes

Norm: Lemming! Look out!
[three of the cavies are squished by an elevator, only to a second later remain intact]
Norm: Waaaait for it... Geez, they don't call this place a concrete jungle for nothing.

One of the greatest animes I've ever seen!
13 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Oh my gosh. I thought after Cory In the House, anime could not reach that height again, especially after garbage like Attack on Titan and Ponyo.

With shows like Johnny Test, we've merely scratched the surface of potential for a new otaku golden age. My Little Pony further progresses it into something highly enjoyable, but it doesn't quite reach that explosion of entertainment that the mid-2000s golden age did (Shrek, Cory In The House, Bee Movie).

And then came Norm of the North.

Screw Attack baby-ass Naruto. Sianara Wind Rises. THIS is the new standard for ALL future anime!

I have never seen a single anime before with THIS amount of effort, passion, brains, and most importantly, HEART put in. The story is so complex and engaging. A bear discriminated against and outcasted from society discovers that his village is becoming invaded and enslaved by an ancient legend proved true: The army of human supremacists who spread their propaganda among their people to devour a race weaker then them. Norm the Bear must voyage to the world of the enemy and convince their people to unite in harmony with the bears in order to save his village from tyranny, fascism, and genocide.

Every character is incredibly deep and impressively characterized. The animation is unique where it makes the world feel lifelike yet fanatical enough to submerge you from reality.

Dare I say it Norm of the North is better than CORY IN THE HOUSE!!!!

11/10. It achieves the impossible.
