Chibi Maruko Chan - A Boy From Italy

(映画ちびまる子ちゃん‐イタリアから来た少年)
 
Synopsis: Based on the hugely popular manga by Sakura Momoko, this special edition film commemorates the 25th anniversary of the long-running television anime series. Chibi Maruko-chan has been dubbed into various languages and airs in many countries around the world, including Germany, India, USA and in the Middle East.

 

She’s the animated third-grader that everyone loves, Chibi Maruko-chan, and she’s back on the big screen after 23 years. This time, doe-eyed Maruko and her wacky friends are thrown into a panic when they are asked to host visiting students from foreign countries. The others are assigned to host guests from India, Hawaii, Brazil and Hong Kong, while an Italian boy named Andrea stays with Maruko. Maruko and the gang leave their surburban hometown of Shimizu to take the students on a tour of Osaka and Kyoto, only to find that Andrea’s amorous approach to friendship completely puzzles her! As she learns more about his culture, she begins to understand why he came to Japan, and even makes a pact with him to meet again.
