Synopsis:

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Afro-ken! He can blend into a flock of sheep, be a makeshift tree in an orchard, act as a stunt double for beer foam, and even replace the clouds in the sky; all without ever saying a word! Watch Afro-ken as he skips through the streets of Japan, bounds through fields of cotton candy, and fends off caveman attackers in ancient times; all without breaking a sweat! But can he manage to avoid being struck by lightning yet again?

Regardless of the fact that both Afro-ken and Dogtato-kun are about dogs, each is a short and whimsical look at very randomly designed characters. There's not a lot of substance to be found in either, but it's pretty clear that if you liked one you'd like the other.

If you enjoyed watching the antics of Afro-ken, a canine protagonist with a difference, then you may enjoy Dogtato-kun, another canine with a twist. With a light sense of fun about both anime, you may enjoy Dogtato-kun if you liked this.

Cat Soup

Cat Soup
  • OVA (1 ep x 33 min)
  • 2001

Cat Soup is an extremely abstract, abnormal, and at times, disturbing adventure, from the director of Nadesico. This 30 minute OVA follows two kittens through what seems to be the underworld, as they search for one of their lost souls. Along the way, they encounter new (edible) friends, scary situations, and even the end of the world! Will these felines manage to return unscathed? Or more importantly, avoid becoming the main course for dinner? Confusion abounds in this quirky OVA.

Both of these anime are very very......... strange I suppose would be one way to put it. Afro-ken is more about MC Afro-kens life and friends where as Cat Soup has something more like a adventure story. The characters never actually speak in both anime, although in Afro-ken there is a narrator. If you're into things which are absolutely crazy in what you're seeing based on human thinking and logic then you will like both of these. So if you like one you'll probobly like the other as well.

Di Gi Charat

Di Gi Charat
  • TV (16 eps x 5 min)
  • 1999

One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.

Although Di Gi Charat and Afro-ken have very little in common, they do share two common elements; random and peculiar humour, and an almost 'cute' sort of animation.

Kogepan

Kogepan
  • Web (10 eps x 4 min)
  • 2001

After accidentally falling into the oven as he was being removed, Kogepan, a piece of red bean bread, became burned. Unlike the other breads such as Kireipan and Ichigopan, Kogepan is somber and has a dark sheen. However, he’s joined by others that are burned just like he is, and together all of the baked goods have fun together talking about life and even taking a trip to the beach.

Afro-ken and Kogepan are both a little bit odd. In my opinion, Kogepan may be watched a little bit more by younger audiences. Afro-ken is a little cute dog thing and Kogepan is a little cute bread thing. So if you like little cute things and anime that lean a little bit towards the younger audiences, watch both of these.

Ocha-ken

Ocha-ken

Ryoku, Aru, Muha, Ron, Hana, Cafe and Chai are colorful tea-dogs who want nothing more than to enjoy each other's company and be friends. Along with the finicky tea-cats, this group of companions will learn valuable lessons about life and friendships, in this quiet 5-minutes-per-episode series filled with positivity and morals.

Ocha-ken and Afro-ken are both fairly pointless but cute shorts about a Japanese merchandise character. Personally, I think Afro-ken is a lot more strange and hilarious than the much more tame and timid Ocha-ken, but regardless, if you liked one you'd probably like the other.
