  • 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.

    I'm In Total Love With This Series
    I took a chance on this about a year ago and ever since I'm SO happy that I did. I've been in love with learning all I can about Japan even down to the stories and tales they tell/told their children while growing up. I'm 27 years old and I've watched every single episode so far and I adore them all❣ If I had children of my own I would show this to them because the morals are so sweet and ...

    Fascinating tales!!!
    If you've watched anime, chances are you've at least heard the names of some of these folk tales, such as Momotaro or Tanabata. This series fills in the gaps, and does it wonderfully. If you've always wondered if Japan had folktales just like us, then watch this series.

    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 ...

    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 ...
