Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi Vol. 1 Blu-ray
Classic Japanese folk tales anime series digital remastering
It ran for 20 years from 1975 to 1995 and its contribution to the preservation of Japan's classic folk tales was immeasurable. We are talking about Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi (Japanese Folk Tale Manga), a legendary anime series created by also legendary studio Group TAC that brought to life hundreds of Japanese folk and fairy tales. The Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi Vol. 1 Blu-ray is a digital remastering of this classic Japanese TV show, featuring 12 of its greatest hits!
It features well-known stories like that of Yuki Onna, the supernatural snow girl, and Momotaro, the small boy born from a giant peach, as well as lesser-known ones like that of the actor Tanokyu or the rolling bean Mametsubu Korokoro. They are just like they were in the original series but at 4K resolution and with much better sound quality. They also come with Japanese subtitles, so you can also use them as a Japanese learning tool – just like two generations of Japanese viewers have!
