A cute story from the early years of Japanese animation. The story is simple - a group of ducklings and a group of frogs fight over a couple of eels. There is minimal dialogue and the story should be perfectly understandable to those without any Japanese. It would be unfair to compare the standards of art and music to modern animation, but the art is endearing and the music nostalgic.

Viewers should note the 1940 release and watch for parallels between the frogs and the ducklings, and Japan's WW2 involvement. The director - Mitsuyo Seo - primarily made propaganda animations, despite being previously arrested and read more

STORY: 2/10

-The story, well, what to tell about the story? It is poorly explained and, well, it is very difficult to understand, since it has no voices.

ART: 4/10

-I give four for art because it was made in 1940, and compared to other animes of the time, this one is a little beautiful

SOUND: 3/10

CHARACTER: 1/10

-The characters are ducks and frogs. They are badly drawn and VERY strange haha

ENJOYMENT: 2/1O

-I gave two because the art is funny, but some parts are really boring

0VERALL: 2/10

-The anime is read more

I just want to point out that most of the interpretations above are wildly incorrect given that this was released in 1940 - much before the escalation of the Japanese-American conflict in the Pacific theatre. If anything, this was the period when the Japanese were occupying Manchuria and making deep excursions into the Sino mainland. If anything this conflict is representing the Sino-Japanese wars that were the precursor to Japanese alliance with the axis.

1. The frogs begin by bullying the ducks, the frogs live on an island - Japan is considered the Island kingdom while it is China or the Middle Kingdom that was based read more
