I saw two raccoons in this morning.
They were so cute!
They were walking. teke, teke, teke, teke...
I think they were common raccoons or Japanese raccoon dogs.

Umm... I cannot place.
You probably know the movie "Pompoko" by Isao Takahata (Ghibli studios)...?
The little magical beasts are called "tanuki".

Oh, I don't have watched 'Heisei Tanuki Gassen Ponpoko'.
Real tanukies are not magical beasts ;-)

This movie's title is 'Heisei Tanuki Gassen Ponpoko' in Japan.
Is it 'Pom Poko'?
