| is it any possible to say that an anime show can overcome most of what we can consider today as fantastic.
this show is so good that it easily beasted shows like dbz and pokemon. this show doesn't have overpowered childish soperpowers or over the top fanservice or everything els we consider anime to be.yet this show with its simple minded dialuges has such a touching story to it.every kid is connected to hes mother and seeing this little kid going miles just to be with hes mother made us the viewers toss aside our dbz figures and pokemon cards and go deep inside this little kids world and share hes struggles and feel hes pain and learn about life the way it really is. this show targeted children and not only it managed to attract them by the thousands but it also attracted adults and teenagers to it the way no cartoon ever managed to do.years later its still aired on TV here in israel .this show truly is timeless and its so sad to know it will never get the fame it deserved worldwide.
