Fragglepuss Anime Review 150: Bono Bono / Bonobono


Bono Bono / Bonobono

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Woodland Critters, Short-form

First Aired: Spring 2016, currently there are 35 short-form episodes

Summary: Bonobono is a sea otter living alongside several woodland friends. The animals spend their days participating in a variety of activities, whether Bonobono is teaching his raccoon friend the appreciation of riding waves or learning how to climb a tree. The series appears simple on the surface with bright characters completing basic tasks, but it is surprisingly deep as you listen to some of their conversations. One episode discusses the meaning of dreams while another explains how some things are considered beautiful to certain individuals because they are not able to see them often. The series is nice because the vibrant characters are enough for young children to enjoy while the message presented in each episode can be beneficial for children old enough to understand.

You might enjoy this if: You want a series that you can sit down and watch with your kids. It’s also good for a quick pick-me-up after a bad day.

You might not like it if: You can’t get past the simple animation.

Note to the Viewer: The Bonobono series originally began in March of 1986 as a manga. The series has gone through several adaptations, including a few films, a game and two anime TV series.
