One word is all you need to change the path you lead. The detrimental choices of life is but a commodity that leads you to a whole. Here we follow a Web designer named Souta Tawara, who, after his father’s death, visits his childhood prefecture of Kagawa, the home of Udon noodles, which funnily enough doesn't play a part in the body of the story, but to an extent remains part of the overaching plot. He soon meets and houses a young “boy”, and the story begins from here.

Considering this is a Slice of Life anime, story isn’t something of total necessity, however there read more

10/10 BEST SLICE OF LIFE ANIME EVER!
I'm just gonna keep things short. Watch this anime! Watch it! Watch it! I could guarantee that you won't regret after finishing this anime, cause I sure don't. This anime is very Barakamon-ish, so if you like Barakamon, then don't hesitate to start this series. If some of you want a critique review on this show, which i don't know the reason why, I will give you one.

Story 9/10
Like who watch SOL anime for story? Although there is one but it doesn't play a huge role on the anime so.....yeah.

Art and Animation 8/10
Cute art. Decent animation. Nothing to read more

Have you guys seen barakamon or Amama to Inazuma? If you have and liked them you will surely like Udon no kuni. This is the cheerful anime of this season. Getting straight to the point the anime doesn't really have an elaborate story line. One thing great about that is this anime feels complete this season alone, so no waiting for a new season and wondering if it will ever be made.
Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari is about a guy called Souta and his chance encounter with Poco who turns out to be a shape-shifting tanuki. The story progresses with Souta remembering things about read more

The story of Souta and Poco is, to say the least, heartwarming. Over the course of twelve episodes, the relationship between the two unlikely pair, a web designer and a shape-shifting tanuki, unfolds as they interact with other characters from both rural and urban environments. The general message conveyed is that of familial love and bonds; however, this does not only pertain to conventional families but found ones, too. Though the plot lacks complexity, aside from the occasional drama that comes with exertion and exhaustion on Poco's part (as maintaining a human form is demanding), the story is compelling and certainly draws the viewer in read more
