Pom Poko

Pom Poko
  • Movie (1 ep x 115 min)
  • 1994

In modern Japan, Tokyo is expanding and considerably reducing animals' habitats, including those of the tanuki (raccoon-like creatures). What humanity doesn't know, though, is that tanuki are intelligent creatures, that can talk and even walk on two legs with the power of transformations! To secure their survival, the two combating tanuki clans join forces against mankind in a war they dub 'Pom Poko'! Humans are a difficult adversary, though... can the tanuki open mankind's eyes to the beauty of nature, before their homes are replaced by yet another suburb?

Both movies are about animals that must figure out a new place to live after humans have come and destroyed where they were. While the rats in Kawa no Hikari just move on, the tanuki of Pom Poko stay behind and fight for their home. Both are very realistic settings aside from talking animals of course. Pom Poko is slightly more dramatic where Kawa no Hikari is pretty light hearted but both share a wonderful tale of creatures fighting for survival. Great family flicks! Check em out!
