A short series for young children tells the story of a chirpy nobleman's child from Heian-era Japan who time-slips into the modern world. He has wacky adventures living with an ordinary Japanese family, whose son Kazuma becomes his special friend. References to 11th-century culture and modern aspirations mix with artwork that looks naïve but is calculated for comic effect. Like Teletubbies, it's paced slowly and simply for easy assimilation by the young. A short film, Summer of Promises (2000), introduces Semira, a strange boy who comes to play with Ojaru and his chums and bears a marked resemblance to a boy of the same name who spent a summer with the village elders when they were boys, long ago. A very different blast from the past would characterize director Daichi's Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl.
