Not only does the 2022 title feature adorable-looking eggs with equally adorable voices, but it also tells a very heartwarming story of perseverance, courage, and adventure. What’s more, the animation of this release is a sight to behold from start to finish; so much so that it may leave you wondering how the animation studio, OLM, Inc., managed to pull it off.
Gudetama: An Eggcellent Adventure follows an egg, Gudetama, and a check, Shakipiyo, as they embark on a wild journey to find their mother. Doing so proves to be very difficult since they are being followed by a mysterious man who desires to capture the talking animals. However, this issue pales in comparison to the fact that Gudetama is expiring by the minute.
With time running out, Gudetama and Shakipiyo must work relentlessly to be reunited with their mother. But will nature take its course before these cute creatures can do so? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
Last but certainly not least, the cast of this title includes Akiyoshi Nakao, Serene Motola, Sarutoki Minagawa, Shunsuke Takeuchi, Seiran Fukushima, and Shimofuri Myojo; names that you may have seen around before. All the more reason to tune in!
