Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi Vol. 2 Blu-ray
Digitally remastered classic Japanese folk talk anime series
Children all over the world have been learning about their culture from fairy tales since the dawn of time and Japanese children are no exception. For the children who grew up between 1975 and 1995, these tales were invariably delivered by the TV anime series Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi (Japanese Folk Tale Manga), which consisted of 10-minute cartoon versions of the stories. Now you too can enjoy a dozen of them on your home screen with the Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi Vol. 2 Blu-ray!
Some of the titles in the Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi Vol. 2 Blu-ray are very well known. Probably the most famous is the story of Urashima Taro, the fisherman who saved a turtle that turned out to be the daughter of the dragon emperor of the sea, and who lives in the underwater kingdom for three days but returns to the real world to find that 300 years have passed. The Blu-ray disc contains 11 other tales to help you investigate Japan's rich tradition of storytelling.
