Synopsis

In ancient times, a Persian merchant gets lost in a windstorm. Suddenly a spiritual deer of nine colors appears to guide the man. Later on, the deer rescues a man drowning in a river. In exchange, the man promises not to reveal the deer's whereabouts. The man reaches an imperial palace. The king insists on hunting down the spiritual deer down to make clothes out of the deer skin. The man gives in to his greed and leads an army of warriors to the spot. He falls into the river again, hoping the deer will show up to rescue him. This time, all the warriors' arrows turn into dust and the man is drowned.

Somewhat brief review for this anime;



There's not much story to this short little film. At its core it portrays themes of greed, love and your brothers keeper. The story is centered around a magical nine colored deer who has the power to grant one happiness and health. Naturally, being Ying and Yang in the world, there are those who both abuse and cherish this magical deer and its powers. A greedy snake merchant trying to turn his luck around (although there is equal exchange between the deer and the snake merchant), from a spoiled queen who uses sympathy to get what she wants.

So, this movie is based on the nine-colored deer which is basically something like a spirit that protects and helps others. The art and animation are actually pretty well-matched for the story as the story the same is based on folk-tales from ancient china. As each old tale, this one teaches you some valuable lessons about greed, contribution and beauty. It is a simple story but actually pretty nice to watch.
