Reason for Award
Ojarumaru, the son of an aristocratic family, “time-slips” from the ancient Heian Period into the home of the modern lad Kazuma, and turns the whole neighborhood upside down. A classic comedy cartoon in the Japanese tradition. The dissonance between the Heian Period and contemporary Japan invites endless laughter. The unique characters have won over children and adult viewers alike. This is a TV cartoon series you can share with your children without hesitation.
