Fuku-chan was one of the most popular newspaper comic strip boy-characters in Japan at the time. The film portrays a submarine attack on an enemy cargo ship. Though this, too, was to boost patriotism, Japanese children particularly enjoyed the scenes in which the kitchen crew cooked in the submarine kitchen. Released in November of the same year, the food shortage was quite serious in Japan, and the abundant food supply in the submarine kitchen -- vegetables, fruit, fish, rice, and more which were already luxury items in Japan at the time -- was prepared into various dishes along with a merry, rhythmic song.

Mixed Feelings
Fuku-chan's submarine has surprisingly turned out to be the better one of the various Japanese war propaganda films I've come to watch so far. The amount of detail in every frame is quite a sight to behold. From the backgrounds in nature to the inner walls of the submarine, I never felt the quality of the art direction drop from its stellar heights.

As far as pacing goes, the movie is a slow crawl. It's goal is propaganda and it works on that with a hammer instead of a precision tool. Patriotism and fervor are a constant refrain throughout the film, but the plot drags ...
