The animator's imagination that depicted a town of animals turned "Chushingura" into an exciting story tailored for children.
|Cast||Ayako Hori, Hideo Kinoshita, Kou Nishimura|
The film presents a simple story using the movement and characterisation specific to anime. The puppy Rock seeks revenge, with fellow dogs of the town, on Killer the tiger who murdered Rock's mother who protected the forest. Original scenario by Osamu Tezuka. The personified mole and shrinking tail of the fox are expressions unique to anime. Dogs and birds exchanging information, and the sewage being networked under the manhole excite the imagination of children.
