YesAsia Editorial Description

Studio Ghibli and Grave of the Fireflies director Takahata Isao create a magical, but sobering tale about preservation with 1994's Pom Poko. The fantasy film takes us into the world of the Tanukis (Japanese raccoon dogs), who are about to take on the human world to ensure their own survival in a rapidly developing Japan. Takahata blends elements of traditional Japanese folklore and a strong message advocating for environmental protection into a wonderfully strange tale about a courageous group of animals fighting to protect their home. At the time of its release, Pom Poko won the Best Animated Film Award at the Mainichi Film Concours and represented Japan at the Academy Awards Best Foreign Film race that year.

In the 1960's, the lives of the Tanukis living in the hills of Western Tokyo are threatened when urban development moves into their area. Since then, natural resources (including land) have become so scarce that groups of Tanukis are now fighting each other for their habitat. Before the fight goes further, matriarch Oroku urges them to stop fighting and use the effort to put a stop the human world's development. Soon, the Tanukis unite in their fight against the humans. When their first several plans didn't work, Oroku comes with a risky plan so crazy that it might work after all.

Blu–ray edition includes storyboards (in picture-in-picture mode), dubbing script, a special rakugo performance about Tanukis and trailers. It also comes with a picture label.

[ストーリー]
自然の恵み豊かな多摩丘陵。そこでのんびり暮らしていたタヌキたちの間に、餌場を巡る争いが起こる。調べてみると、餌場の激減は、人間たちによる宅地造成が原因だと分かる。こんな争いをしている場合じゃない!このままだと、餌どころか住む所すらなくなってしまう。ここに丘陵のタヌキたちの大会議が持たれ、開発阻止を決議。人間たちに立ち向かうため、まず茶釜やだるまなど簡単に化けられるものから始められ、お地蔵さんや招き猫など次々と難しい課題へ移行していき、総仕上げは、人間に化けて街に繰り出す街頭演習。タヌキたちの特訓のかたわら、宅地造成は着々と進められていた。いよいよ卒業テストに合格した若手タヌキたちの人間撃退作戦が開始される。大木に扮してトラックを妨害したり、ダンプを“八畳敷き”で目隠しして転落させたり…。タヌキのせいとは知らない人間たちは「開発のありかたに疑問」と報道、束の間、タヌキは大喜びする。その一方、四国や佐渡に住む長老たちの援軍も仰ぐために使者が差し向けられた。緒戦の成果に力を得たタヌキたちは、化け学を駆使したゲリラ作戦を展開。ところが新興住宅地で続発する怪事件は、面白可笑しく報道されるばかりで、開発阻止にはほとんど効果がない。焦りが広がる中、待ちに待った長老たちが到着した。三長老は、化け学の粋をこらした“妖怪大作戦”の発動を宣言。これにより人間たちの間にタヌキに対する尊敬と畏怖の念を蘇らせ、ひいては開発を中止に追い込もうと目論むが、しかし、人間たちの図太さは想像をはるかに超えていた。最初のうちこそ驚いたものの、途中からはおばけ屋敷さながらの大変化に喜び出す始末。あまつさえ、レジャーランドの宣伝に利用されるに及び、タヌキたちの間に、次第に落胆と自暴自棄の気分が広まっていくが…。

[解説]
タヌキだってがんばってるんだよォ。
