    Charming and relaxing
    If you come for never-ending battle sequences, pantsu shots and other weeaboo cliches, look elsewhere as this is not the show for you. If however you're able to appreciate some classic, folksy storytelling of the sort your grandparents would tell around the fireplace, you're in for a treat. Folktales from Japan's animation style is simplistic yet endearing and it properly conveys the mood of the ...

  • Series Full of Wonderful Stories
    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 ...

  • Good show that anyone of any age can appreciate
    The stories are good insight to the culture and are quite entertaining. Sometimes I find that watching this was soothing/relaxing to the point that it helps me fall asleep (I have insomnia). I can only hope they don't stop making new episodes.
    There are varying art styles within an episode. Some are quite cartoonish, others resemble more traditional water color styles, but all of them are ...

  • A really underrated show
    Intro:
    This show is magnificent. It's for all ages and each episode consists of 3 different stories. Each story have a different and unique art style.
    I'm disappointed that it's so underrated.

    Story: 9/10
    Each story is based on folktales from Japan. They're all enjoyable.

    Animation: 8/10
    As for the animation I would say that it's simple, yet nice. It works well with ...

  • Very enjoyable and fun
    I really enjoyed the series, i was done in an entertaining way. Not only are the stories interesting, but they add a bit of comedy in many of the stories and know when not to add lame gags that would cheapen touching stories. Another aspect that I enjoy is that it's just as much an artist/director showcase; each story is done in a different art style; though it does repeat already seen styles.

  • Relevant, Enjoyable, & Entertaining
    I just got started on this series earlier yesterday, but boy am I hooked.
    These folktales still pertain so much life lessons that we could all still learn from, despite whatever age we may be. I really enjoy how each story has a different animation style and pacing.

  • What wonderful stories with good morals
    These are stories that are not only great for kids, well great if they are good with reading subtitles or can understand Japanese, but also for adults. I'll watch an episode sometimes before going to sleep - the story telling style is great, and these could be used as bed-time stories also

  • Folktales with a kick!
    This series is probably one of the most culturally enriched shows to bless CR. With each episode split into three individual stories, you can guarantee you'll walk away learning something.

    Being an avid history and myth-otaku myself, many of these stories are loosely based around real stories handed down through the ages. Do not be fooled by the idea that this is for children, as some of the ...
