Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rilakkuma's Theme Park Adventure is an original animated series about a bear. The show is a spin-off of the hit Rilakkuma and Kaoru. This stop-motion anime drama is catered towards a slightly younger audience than the original show, due to its light-heartedness and setting. Mild violence and scariness, including being stuck in a tree and a virtual reality duel are featured. Themes of the show include unexpected adventure and friendship.
Is It Any Good?
This series has sweet messages about the fun nature of serendipitous adventures. Rilakkuma's Theme Park Adventure is sure to be hit with fans of the beloved anime characters and the original Rilakkuma and Kaoru series. The show's soft color palette, stop-animation, and plush characters are unique and eye catching. However, the show's slower pace may not sustain show younger's viewers attention, and the lack of diverse characters on screen is somewhat disappointing. That said, you never know what adventures these quirky characters may go on next!
