  • I was pleased to recently show off my first purchase of Japanese Chirashi movie posters in this post This weekend some new Chirashi arrived from Japan to add to my growing collection. I love the artwork on the 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as the Pom Poko special cut-out version.

    Pom Poko is a delightful environmental fable told from the perspective of the “Pom Poko” raccoons. The raccoons of the Tama Hills region near Tokyo are dying out because their land has been taken over by urban sprawl. In an attempt to save their forest and the species that reside within it, the raccoons turn to their ancient transformation powers to scare away people from the area.

  • Pom Poko is a movie that will be terrifying to any member of our species that carries a Y chromosome. Because once you see a magical Japanese raccoon dog use his testicles as a makeshift pouch, parachute, trampoline, sack of deadly doorknobs and other makeshift weapons, you’ll be left cluthing them for the rest of your life.

    Tanuki show up all over the place in anime and manga, as well as pop culture in general. Often they'll make cameo appearances, never to be seen again, or can be major characters like in Pom Poko. Here's just some titles they've appeared in, but please do reply in the comments if you can think of others!
