About The Eccentric Family Blu-ray

The Eccentric Family contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Masayuki Yoshihara.

In modern day Kyoto, humans live in the city, tengus take to the sky, and tanukis roam the earth. One such tanuki is Yasaburo, the third son of Soichiro Shimogamo, famed tanuki leader who met his end far too early at the hands of a group of humans and their year-end banquet hot pot. Yasaburo has since embraced his "fool's blood" and strives for a happy, carefree life. But between taking care of his old tengu master Akadama-sensei, avoiding the life- threatening advances of the beautiful human Benten, dealing with his dangerously stupid twin cousins, and avoiding becoming a hot pot himself in the next year-end banquet, the young tanuki has his proverbial work cut out for him!

An engrossing tale weaving together Japanese folklore with the trials and tribulations of a family that's lost its way - or might have never had one to begin with

by

There's nothing quite like the Eccentric Family - it makes the mundane seem magical and the magical seem mundane, features some downright Shakespearian plots that, while grave, always feel a bit humorous and characters who're always overflowing with charm without being so very in-your-face about it as anime, in all its unsubtle glory, tends to be.

Running through all of it is the fool's blood of this tanuki family that causes them to put their fun and mischief before anything else, even at the cost of their very life - for that is truly the most admirably foolish way to live.

This one's hard to describe the exact appeal of without getting very wordy but I can't recommend it enough.
