Storyline

Kôichi Uehara is a fourth grade student living in Higashikurume City, a suburb of Tokyo. One day he picks up what he thinks to be a fossil of an ancient creature but turns out to be a baby kappa (a mythical Japanese water creature) that was sleeping underground for the past 300 years, and he names it "Coo". Kôichi and Coo become good friends and the kappa starts living with the human boy's family. However, Coo cannot not fully adjust to life in present-day Higashikurume and starts to miss his own family. On a hot summer day, Kôichi and Coo decide to go on an adventurous road trip to find his own kind.

The boy goes on the run with the kappa, and keeps running for many days. Yet not one person the boy or the kappa encounters or passes recognizes either of them. See more »

Ugly looking bad movie. Poorly animated and way to long.
22 January 2020 | by mikeluriarteSee all my reviews

Ugly looking bad movie. Poorly animated and way to long. Didn't like how characters moved and their facial expression, but I think their personalities were even worse. The only not stupid character in this movie was the dog. I supose they rushed the production because some parts look unfinished and with no many details. Music was very manipulative but I felt nothing at all for more than 2 hours.

This is my problem with animated movies, If it is bad or boring, It becomes unbearable. A torture session.
