It is a relaxing meditation on daily life’s delights, reminding viewers to see fancy in all things. Though its cutesy atmosphere may give an illusion of lack of substance, “Rilakkuma and Kaoru” proves otherwise; instead, it shines for its honesty; its whimsical world is juxtaposed against Kaoru’s real-world struggles: she must balance work, romance, and independence when trying to maintain her finances and independence in real-world financial struggles while trying to keep her autonomy financially and freedom while trying to maintain her finances and independence economically and independently.
