Ahh Moomin is my childhood! :'D <3
Almost everyone has watched it here (I live in Norway, Scandinavia).
As much as I love it, it also used to give me a lot of nightmares when I was little.. * - *

Moomin - and the life of its creator - are incredible stories. I cannot recommend them enough. Do find time to read about their creator, Tove Jansson, too - her story is just as fascinating as her work.

Gorgeous little pics you've made here - totally captured the Moomin's unique spirit! =)

so glad you happy! Ah, i love the calm, warm colors and the right anatomy. Makes ME feel good about it. Y'know, it happens to me too when i found complete anime less than 21's (2010-) For example, i read the Marchen Awakens Romance anime EVEN if i never heard of it (and i am so happy now <3) and, like i said, Original Beyblade. 'Cuz watching it is like history, but not JUST history, a new anime i BARELY heard of. See, they're other shows that i haven't discovered it in kid years 'till adolescent years. Happens to me too, my childhood would've looked THOSE up! But... Hehehe, ye. Love it Phui, i'm not much about a fan of Moomins. But this is adorable~.
