"No Place Like Home" – Tarepanda Goes On An Adventure! (manga)- 10/10 Turkeys

The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure. ~Joseph Campbell

Genre: Fantasy/ Comedy

Review Status: Complete (1 Chapter/ 1 Chapter)

Licensed: Unlicensed in the US

Art/Animation: Nice, clear, cute. Bright colors and easy to follow and understand. There’s very little dialogue- it’s mostly pictures.

Summary: Cute little Tarepanda one days wants to go on an adventure. But, after a few bad turns, he realizes he misses home. (MAL.net)

Review: Well, this was an adorable one-shot. A little stuffed panda decided that he should go on a walk, gets lost, and has a little adventure of his own, before finding his way back home. Along the way he comes across many things- from artists painting in a park, homeless in the streets, kittens waiting to be adopted. He also goes through many things, from being hit with a soccer ball, to falling off a cliff into the ocean, being sold at a fish market. Tarepanda often depends on the help of humans to get from one place to another, and sees many things in the city. But with everything Tarepanda goes through, Tarepanda finds that adventuring can be exhausting, and gets some help to do so. And in the end, there really is no place like home!

Recommended: Any age. It’s cute and easy to understand, and nothing offensive.
