It has a decent drawing for a retro anime and has quite a few funny moments as well. It's black and white and there's no sound but those are compensated with an interesting storyline.

As it's based on a Japanese folk tale it should have some sort of a moral and should be teaching you a lesson. This one doesn't, but that's what makes this story more saucy than others. Small spoiler: failure followed by a betrayal.

I liked it a lot and if you are looking for retro Japanese animation, then you should watch this one!
