Pom Poko will teach you the ancient Raccoon transformation art

I have lived for many years in Tama where “Pom Poko” is located and I often go jogging at night along the Tama River, where I sometimes have real life tanuki cross my path. They will disappear into the grass, and I have never seen a change in form, but “Pom Poko” insists that they can integrate into human society. So who knows, maybe the next pedestrian or pedestrian you pass will be tanuki in disguise…

The title “Pom Poko” is an onomatopoeia of the sound of tanuki beat their chests. The full Japanese title of the movie is Heisei Tanuki Gassen Ponpoko. Heisei refers to the era ending in April 2019 with the history of Emperor Akihito abdication of the thronewhile gassen often translated as “war” in this context.

When I was re-watching “Pom Poko” over the weekend, I took a break in the bathroom and stumbled across the news before starting the series again. New York just announced a state of emergency through a new one polio outbreakand thoughts on this – on monkeypox and all the different coronavirus variants of the 2020s – make a sad fitting pairing with “Pom Poko” and its environmental themes. it (which makes people even more hungry in “Princess Mononoke”).

In “Pom Poko”, we see nature, personified (or animal-like) by raccoon dogs, finding all the stops in an attempt to fight humans. The tanuki quickly celebrate their victory, and some of them carry an undying hatred of humanity. But older, wiser people feel grief over the loss of their lives. “We wish that we could save our forest without harming any humans,” said one.

Can we live in harmony with tanuki.
