Unico

When young Unico the unicorn is born with a magical power that makes everyone around him happy, the gods become angry, believing that only they have the right to decide whether mortals should be happy or not. Thus the gods order the West Wind to take the young unicorn to the Hill of Oblivion, till the end of time. However the West Wind takes pity on the innocent, helpless Unico and instead puts him down on the remote Land of Mist, beginning a series of events and adventures for the little unicorn.

It was hard for me to rate this since I around 4 years old last time I saw this film. So, I absolutely loved it...hard for me to know what...

It's cute. Very cute. The little demon and cat make for some fun times, and Unico himself is adorable. If you like Osamu Tezuka's work, then enjoy...
