This show is exactly what it sounds like— a retelling of a bunch of children’s folktales from Japan.
I actually enjoyed it. I know nothing about folktales from Japan, but I love this kind of thing.
I wouldn’t recommend it to most people, however. Why? Because the target audience is four years old. It’s literally read by a narrator like it’s out of a book. The animation doesn’t have much effort put in. And the stories are all for children.
But I enjoyed it, I’ll keep watching. They are good stories.
