Blue Blink (青いブリンク Aoi Burinku?) is a fantasy adventure anime series created by Osamu Tezuka. The anime is based from classic film Konjok-gorbunok by Ivan Ivanov-Vano.[1] The film in turn is based from Pyotr Pavlovich Yershov's The Little Humpbacked Horse.

This was Tezuka's last anime series.[2] Osamu Tezuka died while this series was in production. The studio completed the production according to his plans.[1] The show is currently streaming at Anime Sols, but will soon be removed, because it did not meet its goal of crowd-funding for DVD. It is alternately available for legal streaming at Viki.com. [3]

Story[edit]

The story opens with the meeting between our hero, Kakeru, and a mystical pony named Blink. Kakeru saves Blink from a thunder shower and in gratitude, Blink tells him that if he is ever in trouble, all Kakeru needs to do is call out his name three times and he will appear. At the end of the summer when Kakeru returns home, his father, a writer of children's stories, is kidnapped. Kakeru, weeping, calls out Blink's name and, as promised, Blink immediately appears, and the two set out on the trail of Kakeru's father.
