*English is not my first language! This review will be edited... eventually!*

I think it should only be appropiate to give my very first review to the very first anime I've ever seen... and it would be this! Moomins, or Muumilaakson Tarinoita, as it would be called here in Finland, is without an doubt, one of the very best works of anime, that I've ever seen - period. Not necesarily "the best" because of the plot, nor even for the story, but because of the characters, and the world they bring to life, simply just by being there.

As a child, I grew up watching this read more

Inspired by Tove Jansson's book series about the Moomin family, this wonderful experience of what not many know is an anime, is a masterpiece TV anime show of 20th century - well at least in my opinion. Considering its goal were the kids of younger age, yet even adults loved, and still love it, Tanoshi Moomin Ikka (also simply known as "the Moomins") is a lovely experience for anyone wanting to try the Moomin way of living.

While some of the episodes do get back remembering happenings from the one before, it doesn't really matter if you saw it or not - almost each episode read more

Having watched every episode there is of this show the three past months, I can safely say that the Moomins will fit everyone with a sense of adventure. It's calm, it's exciting, and most of all, the characters are lovable.

The series follows the basic formula of nearly every other Anime. Something happens, the Moomin family must fix it and everything turns out well. However, the series isn't completely episodic. There is a handful of episodes which introduces new characters, while others add background history, giving more depth to the main characters. The best way to watch this is in chronological order.

The animation is fantastic and read more

aah...Moomin or "Muumit" as we say here in Finland was the show of my childhood, like the normal Finn that i am. I dont even remember when i first watched these.
The stories were and still are pretty damn entertaining. They take you to so many different places out of this world, from past to real time. i dunno how to explain but they just were so well written.
The art style was all new when Tove Jansson first published her novel stroies or what ever theyre called. And Japanese made quality work animating it. You could sense clearly all the feelings of the characters and read more

As a first review of mine, It is fitting to begin with the series me and many others have first seen. To summarize, this is an excellent adaptation of the original stories, and has established itself as one of the best children's anime series that also adults can easily appreciate. This review is based on the Finnish dubbed version.

Story 10/10

Story arcs of the original work are split into singular episodes and larger arcs of several episodes. It is in the latter that this adaptation truly shines. While these are self-contained stories, I recommend viewing the series in chronological order. The changing of seasons is an read more

Tove Jansson's Moomin is a national treasure in Finland, and its author a major literary celebrity. Almost every Fin who grew up in the 90s has probably seen at least a few episodes of Tanoshii Muumin Ikka, although they may not have known that they were viewing a Finnish re-dub of a Japanese cartoon, just as I couldn't have told you that Pokemon was Japanese when I watched it as a child. It's not as well-known elsewhere - as a matter of fact, I seem to be the first non-Scandinavian read more

And thus me childhood began.
Moomin is a childrens book/comic made by Tove Jansson and Lars Jansson. Then for some reason the japanese made a moomin adaptation of a finnish childrens book, but oh boy I loved this as a child and even now I still do. It's fun for all ages.
There is not much of a story to speak about. Its kinda episodic show. There are few longer parts that I remember. One is when the moomin valley transformed into jungle and they had to destroy it since there were man eating plants. Then of course moomin pappas childhood.
The characters. Here are the important read more
