Japan-made stop motion animation series Rilakkuma and Kaoru, bought by Netflix, managed to attract attention with its first season. But is this enough for the second season?
Netflix’s new Anime series combines the Kaoru story, who is our main character in the series, with beautiful life lessons and conveys it to the audience. The series is quite successful when it does this until now. The anime, which attracts the viewer regardless of generation, introduces the motifs of Japanese culture quite successfully as well.
The series, which started on April 19, became the favorite of the audience. The series, created in partnership with Dwarf Studio and San-X, visually delights the audience with fine details. The story, which proceeds around a young businesswoman in her 20s, is also about Rurukkuma, Kauru’s lazy housemate.

What is Rilakkuma and Kaoru Plot?
“Rilakkuma and Kaoru” is a contemporary “Winnie The Pooh” with a little “Bridget Jones” theme coming out of Japanese culture. Rilakkuma, a cute teddy bear designed by a young woman, has been known in Japan since 2003. Netflix has now adapted it as a stop-motion series consisting of an average of 12 minutes.
The series’s main character is a young woman named Kaoru, who works in an office job. Kaoru shares her apartment with three toy animals. Rilakkuma is a sleepy, lazy bear just like Winnie The Pooh. It symbolizes the comfort side of human beings. The second toy animal, Korilakkuma, is a childish, immature little bear. Third, Kiiroitori, a hardworking, very meticulous duck. You can think of Kaoru instead of the character of Christopher Robin, and an apartment with a large garden where Kaoru lives instead of the Hundred Acre Forest.
