If you liked the My Neighbor Totoro anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Ryoku, Aru, Muha, Ron, Hana, Cafe and Chai are colorful tea-dogs who want nothing more than to enjoy each other's company and be friends. Along with the finicky tea-cats, this group of companions will learn valuable lessons about life and friendships, in this quiet 5-minutes-per-episode series filled with positivity and morals.
Both Totoro and Ocha-ken are designed to be watched by children, but can also appeal to adults and older kids. Though Totoro draws in an older audience through its mature storytelling and Ocha-ken uses adorable mini stories and a simple art style, both are children's animes that adults wouldn't mind watching along with the kids.

Mimiko befriends the panda and later the panda's father, and they begin to live together as an adopted family. However living indoors isn't easy for giant pandas, and to make matters worse, several townspeople want to "save" Mimiko from her adopted panda family!
