Pom Poko is a 1994 Japanese animated fantasy film directed by Isao Takahata and animated by Studio Ghibli. Consistent with Japanese folklore, the tanuki (Japanese raccoon dogs, Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus) are portrayed as a highly sociable, mischievous species, able to use the science of illusion to transform themselves, like the kitsune (foxes) and other shape-shifters. Visually, the tanuki in this film are depicted in three ways at various times: as realistic animals, as anthropomorphic animals that occasionally wear clothes, and as cartoon figures based on the manga of Shigeru Sugiura. They tend to assume their realistic form when seen by humans, their cartoon form when they are doing something outlandish or whimsical, and their anthropomorphic form at all other times. The main characters are: Abbot Tsurugame (Osho), Shoukichi, Bunta, Gonta,Fireball Oroku, Tamasaburo, Okiyo, Seizaemon, Ponkichi, Hanako, Kumataro, Hayashi,Sasuke, the 3 transformation masters: Inugami Gyobu, Kincho Daimyojin VI (daughter Koharu), Yashimano Hage and the fox Ryutarou.
