Veggie Heroes: The Vampiyans!
Japan is definitely a progressive country in many aspects, but, as their many Far East neighbours, they do not shine when it comes to compassionate living and show almost no respect towards innocent fishes and seafood (why calling these seafood at all? anybody with a good alternative? what about seafriends?).
Yet, there are some enlightened minds without dubts (check back for future post about the height of Japanese vegan friendliness). In fact, a new cartoon recently released out of Japan is about the Vampyrian. That is a cute and friendly family of Vampires who are... totally Vegetarian!
According to the production site the Vampiyan Kids are
a noble family of vegetarian vampires, banished from Monster Land for their
inability to scare humans. To lift the exile set on the family, Papa, the head
of the household, must scare 1000 humans. To this end, he attempts to use his
magnificent skills in making new inventions, but always and inevitably fails. To
complicate things further, Papa's daughter Sue falls in love with a young
human boy and no longer wants to return to Monster Land. Will Papa ever get
his family back home?
Cute! This seems a rare example of fun yet child proof Japanese animee! And definitely veggie forward! More generation of Japanese veggie kids to come?
