Sumikko Gurashi debuted in 2012 as slightly negative characters who like to stay in the corner of a room. The characters include "Shirokuma," a polar bear who is sensitive to cold; "Penguin?" (with a question mark in its name), a penguin who is unsure if it is actually a penguin; "Tonkatsu," a piece of pork cutlet that was left uneaten; "Neko," a shy cat; and "Tokage," who hides his nature as one of the last dinosaurs.

The franchise has inspired toys, books, stationery material, video games--and now a feature film.

Warning: This review is purely personal and probably won't match with yours.

At first, I'll try to be "objective". The film is mainly for kids, although I think it can also be fun for adults. I think most people wouldn't find it boring, knowing what you're about to watch.

The characters are something that existed before the film (from gachas in Japan), so not much to say here. If you haven't ever seen them before and don't find them adorable, then this film is not made for you.

The music and sound was great, loved the songs on the special moments.

The art design is very simplistic, which is ...

A Bittersweet Traipse Through Storybooks

A beautiful and simple film wherein we get a brief intro to the Sumikko Gurashi characters and then go through a number of fairy tales with them. Some of the stories visited include: Momotaro, Little Red Riding Hood, and The Little Match Girl (without the tragic ending). The animation is rather simple with a nice pastel palette but there is some good usage of 3D CGI and some aspects of collage (one segment with lace trees is particularly striking). If you just want to watch something sweet and kind there are few better ways to fill an hour.

I really didn't knew that there was a movie for this, Sumikko Gurashi is full of cute characters and within this film— you will get to know them and their personalities!

I like anything with Sumikko Gurashi such as stationeries since I love hoarding a lot of them. I did enjoyed the story and narration for this film. It shows the adventures and lives/stories of each characters.

I do also like the art, it's very clean and neat in my opinion.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie so I rate this an 8/10! It's very suitable for any ages, it's really cute! I was smiling for a solid one ...
