A brilliant series worthy of recognition
4 January 2016 | by m-ozfiratSee all my reviews

When I first went to North Cyprus as a child visiting my family i came upon this series whilst watching TRT television and at its premiere release enjoyed the bubbly characters and the sporadic comical and emotional situations around for which the series revolves and one in which children can enjoy and relate to becoming entranced in to the show.

Until recently i could not remember its name and by luck and hard searching found it on the internet and now I am happy I can put a name to it and know more about the background to the series such as the fact of it being based on a children's novel.

The characters are well written, executed and deep that captures emotion and feeling as reflected and embedded in the great Japanese animation that all works within the programme

The series evolves very well as it progresses. Visually it also captivates the emotions of people making you feel as if you are reading the novel which makes it in my opinion a Manga epic with great presentation and music. This show gave me happy memories and it will not disappoint.
