Every now and then we come across an anime, that maybe nobody has ever heard of--but it really is a lot of fun to watch. Well "Junkers Come Here" is a perfect example of such a title.

Story: 9/10
This title does a great job of mixing drama and slice of life into one story, with a little bit of supernatural fun thrown in for good measure! The plot revolves around a young grade school girl named "Hiromi" and her dog "Junkers." Now Hiromi is the prime example of a bottled up child! Her parents are never around much, she doesn’t have many friends at school, and read more

Junkers, Come Here encompasses everything that is great about animation.

The movie sticks close to the reality we know and avoids topical and epochal content while still using animation effectively to depict scenes that would otherwise be difficult, expensive, or uncanny in other media. While the story it tells is typical, the writing, soundwork, and pacing of the scenes demonstrate mastery of craft. While neither being a dramatic film nor a comedy, Junkers manages to constantly deliver scenes which are wholeheartedly funny, moving, and entertaining. The characters and story deliberately avoid feeling artificial, and even with the inclusion of a talking dog, the movie's universe feels read more

This is an anime for all the latchkey kids out there. This is an anime for everyone that has sat alone at an empty table eating microwaved dinners night after lonesome night. This is an anime for all the people that grew up in broken families, where stony silences and frigid stares were the main means of communicating. And this, sadly, is an anime for me, someone who spent the majority of his childhood, desperately trying to reconcile two hostile parents that couldn't stand to be in the same room as one another. I too spent many late nights waiting to hear that car read more

This heartwarming family film focuses on a young girl named Hiromi dealing with the complications within her family alongside her pet talking dog, Junkers. The film believably deals with the issues of divorce and parental absence that effect Hiromi in this film, issues that you wouldn't find touched upon in many family or children's films. Both of Hiromi's parents have areas of work that require them to have days to weeks at a time away from home and Hiromi is normally cared for by her tutor and family maid. While the young girl puts on the facade of not minding the work of her family, read more

The dogs represent the "look on the bright side" aspect of their stories.

Anime: Uchuu Show e Youkoso
Another film about friendship between children and a talking dog, the schnauzer Junkers.

Anime: Colorful (Movie)
Both provide a balanced mix slice of life and drama using the perspective of the difficulty of a youth's life as the story. They both have fairly plain character designs and a magical assistant of sorts to help the main character in their personal struggles.

Anime: Kappa no Coo to Natsuyasumi
Charming, family-focused drama about a kid with a fantastical pet.
Coo to Natsuyasumi elaborates on the supernatural element, especially how society deals with it, and some dark themes. Junkers' magic remains unexplained, and is more of a plot device supporting the protagonist's characterization and climax. Junkers is also more character-focused, but both have detailed slice-of-life.

Anime: Egao
The anime's are both about a lonley girl finding a friend in a pet. Though Minna no Uta is alot shorter than Junkers 
reportRecommended by MistressRip
Anime: Mimi wo Sumaseba
Both are slice of life, telling the stories of two children growing up, falling in love for the first time and all the rest.

'Whisper of the Heart' focuses more on romance and deciding what direction to take life in beyond school. 'Junkers Come Here' focuses more on a young girl trying to carry on, despite not seeing her parents and them being on the verge of splitting up, also spending a lot of time advancing its lead by using her first crush.

I'd say most that like 'Whisper of the Heart' will also like 'Ocean Waves' and 'Only Yesterday', too - all  read more
