Demetan comes from such a poor family that he cannot even go to school in his woodland pond community. However, he has a friend named Ranatan, the lovely, gentle frog girl who is the daughter of the pond’s rich ruler. Naturally her father is quite displeased by this relationship and he seeks to break it up. Nevertheless the young frogs continue with courage and confidence, not only to live their own lives but to guide the heartless leopard frog to a sense of justice and generosity. Gradually the pond community responds to their sincerity and joins them in a march toward a bright future.
Opening & Ending
I really wanted to post the Japanese ending, but the video quality was more than bad, so I decide to only post the French version.
Hard, hard the life of a little frog in a new pond when our family are poor and the crush is the daughter of the king of the pond.
I don’t remember most of the story, only remembering some part of it. I do own the DVD so when i will really feel nostalgic I would be able to watch it, without driving myself crazy by trying to find the episode online.
