    Mono no Aware / The Beauty in Impermanence
    Mono no aware (物の哀れ) is a term used to describe a literary construct in Japanese story telling and represents cultural component. Mono no aware can be summarized as an awareness that things are finite, impermanent, and that while sad, this impermanence grants that thing a certain kind of dignified beautify.

    Uchoten Kazoku is in many ways a story about mono no aware. While Yasuburo and his ...

    A interesting story brought to life
    Well I'd say it's well written, beautifully drawn and animated, Acting is spot on. Adult humor with a touch of childish banter. The concept of humans, Tanuki, and Tengu coexisting and interacting with one another and a interesting plot inter-weaved together. I like it!

    This Series is great.
    This is an imaginative series that has fresh new ideas, that are executed very well. The only thing I can compare it to in terms of genre, is something between fruits basket, and FLCL. This is something you should be watching!

    These are simple pleasures...
    I've watched about 5-6 episodes and have enjoyed every one. I wish every episode was longer and I didn't have to wait for the next one

    They are well written and very delicate. I love the interactions and that the magical seems to be well woven into the story and not sticking out. A little bit of myth, mystery, love and family interplay are well balanced in the show. I could watch this over ...

    Beautiful and intriguing.
    This is a beautiful style and a story that pulls you in and mesmerizes you. After each and every episode, it makes you wish for more. It can be funny and serious. You shouldn't be bored while watching this anime. As questions you have gained are answered, more take their place(But not in an annoying way). I highly recommend this to people of all ages.

    Miyazaki-esque with a beautiful & complete story
    Truly enjoyable anime that leaves you with a lot to chew on after the credits roll. If you are looking for something light-hearted that feels a bit like Miyazaki's movies, this is for you. This anime is only 13 episode long and provides one of the most complete stories I have seen to date. Must watch!

    A hidden gem, poetry animated
    I began to watch this show because of wacky and clever humor. I finished it because of the intense drama and bonding of brothers that had become estranged.

    There is little I can say without spoiling the atmosphere, but a tale of fantasy and ridiculousness blossoms into a tender tale of tragedy and betrayal. It ends finally with a story of healing and epitome. A family reconnects after dealing ...

    It can be a Little childish but in a good way.
