Series Full of Wonderful Stories
17 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Like I had said animation is an art form and this world of ours is full of wonderful stories. Also, I'm always on the look-out for new anime to watch like this series. I have watched this adorably funny series on my twin sister's smart TV, and I automatically love it. I also love that this show has a wide variety of art styles that anime fans (both young and old) can appreciate. The animation is some stories reminded me of Sanrio's "Hello Kitty's Animation Theater".

Now I have 27 favorite stories. But if I tell you folks what they are, it would fill up this whole review. Of course, my top favorites are: Issunbōshi (#2A), The Old Woman's Skin, Princess Kaguya (#20A), The Mouse Adopts a Groom, The mysterious love poem, and Yamata no Orochi. Overall, I really love this anime series; even if some stories are repeated through out.
