In The cheery Ochibi lives a free and carefree existence in Mametsubu-cho, a little village in Japan’s historic city of Kamakura. Together with his buddies — the dog Nazeni, the cheeky cat Jack, and the ever-hungry canine Pankui — he looks forward to the new discoveries and acquaintances that the changing seasons bring. Spring offers flowers and greenery, and summer brings opportunities to bathe in the cold water. Autumn delivers blazing red maples, and winter brings steaming, substantial dinners. These events and seasonal changes are shown with a soft and tender touch, bringing out the warmth in the nuances of daily life.
