Laughing Under the Clouds is an anime series from FUNimation that first aired in 2014. The show is set in a fictional world inspired by historical Japan and follows the adventures of three brothers who must protect their village from supernatural threats. The brothers are named Tenka, Soramaru, and Chutaro, and each has their own unique personality and skills. Tenka is the oldest and the leader of the group. He is calm and level-headed, with a strong sense of responsibility to protect his brothers and his village. Soramaru is the middle brother, and he is more impulsive and hot-headed than Tenka. He is fiercely protective of his family and friends and will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Chutaro is the youngest brother, and he is the most innocent and naive of the group. He is also incredibly strong, despite his small size.

The three brothers are members of the Kumoh family, who are charged with maintaining the peace and protecting the village from evil spirits known as Orochi. Orochi are powerful beings that can possess humans and cause them to act out violently. The Kumoh family has been tasked with defeating the Orochi for generations, and each generation passes down their skills and knowledge to the next.

One day, a mysterious stranger named Botan arrives in the village. She is a young girl with an affinity for music, and she immediately befriends the Kumoh brothers. However, it soon becomes clear that Botan is not who she seems. She has a connection to both the Orochi and the Kumoh family, and her presence in the village sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy everything the brothers hold dear.

Laughing Under the Clouds is a thrilling adventure that combines action, drama, and humor in equal measure. The show is beautifully animated, with vibrant colors and detailed character designs that bring the world to life. The voice acting is also excellent, with Christopher Wehkamp, Robert McCollum, and Morgan Laure all delivering standout performances as the Kumoh brothers.

One of the strengths of Laughing Under the Clouds is its ability to balance serious themes with lighthearted moments. The show deals with issues like family, loyalty, and sacrifice, but it also knows when to lighten the mood with a well-timed joke or a comedic scene. This makes the show engaging and emotionally resonant, without ever feeling too heavy or depressing.

The action scenes in the show are also a highlight. The Kumoh brothers are skilled warriors who use a combination of martial arts and supernatural powers to battle the Orochi. The fight choreography is impressive, with each battle feeling unique and exciting. The show also has a great sense of visual style, with the Orochi themselves being particularly memorable and creepy.

Overall, Laughing Under the Clouds is a fantastic anime series that is well worth watching. It combines a compelling story with engaging characters, thrilling action, and stunning animation, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre. Whether you are a seasoned anime fan or a newcomer to the medium, this show is sure to impress.

Laughing Under the Clouds is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2014.
