When I borrowed the DVD from my sister I was sceptical at first because she said she didn't really like it and the graphics weren't really outstanding either. How wrong I was. Kappa no Coo to Natsuyasumi is one if the most amazing animes I have ever seen. I must admit I expected it to be rather boring and not special at all but I was so wrong. I enjoyed every minute of it, it was fun to watch, I laughed a lot, and I cried a lot too. The story really touched me, the characters really grew on me (even the supporting ones!) and read more

If there's anything this anime could remind you of then it's the movie "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial".

A boy finds a strange (initially fossilised) creature, a Kappa named Coo, with a kind character. The family gets attached to Coo and struggles to keep him secret from the public. Coo soon starts to feel lonely and separated and wonders about his own kind.
Even though there's a lot happening in between and afterwards, the movie has a very, VERY calm and smooth way of storytelling but doesn't create a feeling boredom. If you're looking for action and a propulsive plot, then this is nothing for you.

Most characters have depth read more

Humanity was destined to rule, and selfishly at that, it seems. If you're reading this, you're guilty of conquering. While it may not be on the scale of raiding and pillaging villages to gain land, you are indeed living on the natural habitat or animals, both big and small, and that is sort of what Summer Days with Coo illustrates. It gives human-like qualities to turtle-like creatures, called kappas, allowing us to see the consequences of our actions without discarding it as "they're only animals." It gives us a sense of sympathy. At the beginning of the film, a samurai kills a kappa as he read more

I originally watched this since I really find yokai interesting & thought this would be a cute movie from what i gathered from the bio of it. While it was a fairly cute movie it did have a very dark side to it.

It really exposed the nasty side of human beings in this film, to the point where it almost made me uncomfortable. I am very sensitive about the fair treatment of animals, so just as a warning to anyone like me, you may be bothered by a few scenes in this film. Apart from that it definitely had some funny & cute moments read more
