Synopsis

On a fateful day, a young girl named Ai takes a taxi to her new home in Animal Village. After being swindled by her landlord, Tanukichi, into working for his delivery service, it is not long before Ai meets other village residents: Kotobuki, the mayor perpetually worried about his reelection; Yuu, the only other human around, with a passion for random antics and costumes; Bouquet, an overly energetic but rather friendly cat; and Sally, an elephant who dreams of being a fashion designer. New friends seem to lurk in every nook and cranny, but despite that, Ai still struggles to find her niche in this town—until some mysterious notes left on the beach give her a glimpse of a greater purpose.

Background

Doubutsu no Mori is based on the 2001 video game series Animal Crossing by Nintendo. The movie began production following the success of Animal Crossing: Wild World, with the 2005 Nintendo DS game shipping a total of three million copies in Japan at the time. Some video game staff worked closely with the project to ensure the movie would widely appeal to audiences, just like the games.

The film was released on DVD in Japan on July 25, 2007.

What can I say its Great. Animal Crossing just melts the heart strings but also ...

THIS IS THE GREATEST FAN DUB I have ever seen. When Nintendo of America say no just do it yourself and it works so well. I honestly don't know why Nintendo of America never dubbed this movie as it would obviously been great for bringing fans into the franchise. I understand some people prefer subs but as a child's movie a dub just makes sense. Plus listening and being able to focus on all the details the movie has to offer is really enjoyable.

This anime adaptation is focused on the second entry in the game franchise Wild World for the Nintendo DS, and as such is filled with music, and art that is derived from that game. On that note, this movie is an incredibly charming and enjoyable ride. The plot focuses on a new arrival to the town, Ai, as she learns new things, makes new friends, and goes on a wacky adventure near the end. The anime, if you didn't know, is an adaptation of the (to my knowledge,) Japanese exclusive Animal Crossing Wild World manga, and as such adapts the first three issues, (to my ...

Mixed Feelings
First review, so please bear with me.

I was surprised at seeing that majority of the reviews I've seen on here are positive, so here's one with an opposite tone. Naturally, this review is overall negative.

I expected a lighthearted, character driven slice of life, but what I got was a movie too ambitious for it's own good.
