Chitose-chan is a penguin who lives in Kyoto. Getting in touch with people and getting fed delicious food as she curiously walks around Kyoto streets is her favourite thing to do. The story features popular places in Kyoto like Kiyomizu Temple, Ginkaku Temple, and Gion from the Penguin's point of view. This is a short story about a penguin that is nostalgic and warm, curing and relieving the heart.

If this isn't the cutest thing I've ever seen, idk what is, honestly. Straight up masterpiece! Legit was crying inside when I reached the end of this; wish it could've gone on forever (season 2 someday pls!?) ;~;

Seriously though, really adorable and enjoyable series. It's about a Penguin called Chitose who goes to live in Kyoto and goes on lots of cute adventures. That's all you need to know. Watch it, you won't regret it!

- The art works really well in my opinion
- The ending songs are 👌
- The noises Chitose makes and the emotions she shows really tug on the heart man

Chitose-chan is quite possibly one of the cutest and most enduring animated animals I have had the pleasure joining in it's adventures. While I am going to go a bit into detail about what I thought was okay and what I really enjoyed, I will say now that this is a definite watch (especially for a short anime series) and would watch another season if produced.

The story is literally the synopsis and while it doesn't get the chance to expand as much as I would like into it, does deliver at least one interesting new fact about Kyoto or a heartwarming moment with Chitose-chan.

Speaking of, ...

A very cute quick watch for anyone who likes penguins or cute anime. I think it would be a good show for a younger child or a family to watch together. There’s not really any big overarching plot, but the plot of each episode is nicely done, especially for the time frame it’s in. My biggest quip is that they reuse the same voice actor for at least 6 different characters, but for a production this small it’s understandable. I think more episodes would’ve been nice as well, especially with the episodes being less than three minutes each.

Sound- 6/10
Story- 6.5/10
Characters- 7/10
Animation- 7/10
Cuteness- 8/10
Overall 7/10
