  • 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 ...

  • Amazing storytelling experience
    These are classic fairy tales told in such a beautiful, children's book way. I am really quite in love with the whole thing. They cover 3 fairy tales an episode and often that is all you need for the roots of our storytelling past.

    Some of the stories and characters are quite repetitive, but some of the antics and differences between versions of stories are quite genius. I really enjoy the ...

    Spiritual "successor" of Manga Nihon Mukashi Banashi
    As it has been already mentioned, "Furusato Saisei Nippon no Mukashi Banashi" is essentially the 2K-envision of "Manga Nihon Mukashi Banashi" (which were Japanese folk-tale-oriented episodes of "Manga Sekai Mukashi Banashi", which told stories all over world not limited to middle-Europe). This is mainly noticeable with the varied stylistic changes seen between ...
