Plot concept: This original stop-motion Sanrio production features beautiful photography, lighting, sets, and intricate dolls.
While not anime itself, there’s long been an interest among many anime fans for this Sanrio project with the 1979 stop-motion film Nutcracker Fantasy.
That release includes the original Japanese language with English subtitles as well as the previously produced English language dub. Now, they’ve brought the show over to RetroCrush where they have separate dubbed and subtitled options available.
