Young Mari hates eating vegetables and drinking milk so much that she has nightmares about being force-fed the items. One day at school, the young girl chokes down her milk and vegetables and promptly faints from the shock. When she wakes up in the nurse’s office, she comes face to face with Ninninman, Piman and Milk, three food sprites that only appear when Mari drinks her milk and eats her carrots and peppers. Though Mari is less than enthusiastic about being haunted by her most hated foodstuffs, can the three spirits help her realize the importance of friendship, and maybe even teach her to finish her meals?

Due to the lack of free time which is supposed to be allotted for my daily serving of anime, I resorted to watching short anime films and such. Of course, I was hoping to find something as magnificent yet light as Tsumiki no Ie. Then I stumbled upon the 4 short anime shows that comprised the 2010 Young Animators' Training Project. As the name of the said endeavor implies, its an on-the-job-training project funded by the Japanese Animation Creators Association to train fresh aspiring animators. Although I found it not as touching, unique and outstanding as Tsumiki no Ie, this anime collection was still worth read more

Young Animator Training Project/Anime Mirai short reviews: Part 4/12

I feel I should have liked Super Veggie more than I did. The whole veggie eating thing is just part of a larger theme of overcoming your fears, which is a pretty universal narrative anyone can understand and empathise with. Plus I usually like stories with little kids as protagonists. They have energy and enthusiasm but I can also sympathise with their small-time conflicts which translate into much broader and more universal feelings of loss or regret or fear or whatever. Thing is, Super Veggie doesn’t lean on that side heavily enough. The kid doesn’t feel read more
