One day, a young kitten was on a walk with her mother and siblings; but soon she became separated from her kin. Struggling to find her way home, the kitten soon ran into a young boy named Yohei and his mother; and out of pity, the duo takes the kitten home with them. Unfortunately they discover that they are unable to keep pets in their home, and thus begin a quest to find her a new place to live. From playing with shoelaces to being washed, the cute kitten named Chi will have fun and get to know her new family – though all she really wants is to make it home to her feline mother.
Higepiyo is just like any other chick; he's small, yellow, and... has a beard?! With an imposing presence and his constant sighing, it's not surprising that Higepiyo is the last chick left at the festival stand. Luckily for the now-depressed salesman, Hiroshi and his parents decide to buy Higepiyo for their own bizarre reasons. It's only when the family get him home that they realize just how weird this chick really is. From reading the newspaper to attacking the school bullies over a bread roll, Higepiyo is far from your average pet. Now Hiroshi and his parents must adapt to living with this food-crazed, talking chick - that is, if they can stop living in fear of their new pet! They just have to remember that while Higepiyo may not be cute, he may have a beard and he may ask for a second helping of curry, he's still a chick just the same!
If you enjoy short comedic anime about pets, then both of these series are for you. Though Chi has more realism and Higepiyo is a bit more on the random side, if you enjoyed the slightly different style and comedy of one then you may well like the other.
Pets are a wonderful thing. Both these shows show the care and comedy an owner goes through with their pets. Higepiyo is slightly more out there because it is a chick that can talk to it's owner where Chi is about an adorable kitty. Both have short episodes and are sure to entertain.
Being a mom is never easy, especially when the arrival of spring results in your children drawing weather maps on the walls and leaving their ice cream to melt in your bed! For Rieko Kamohara this is just a part of her daily routine. While her drunken husband works as a travelling photographer and is often away from home, Rieko has to try and balance her job as a manga artist with looking after her two young children, Bunji and Fumi. From looming deadlines and her own mother nagging her about her duties as a housewife, to being hounded by a middle aged man dressed as a fairy who claims to be the spirit of early education, it’s amazing that super mum Rieko manages to keep her sanity intact at all!
Both Mainichi Kaasan and Chi's Sweet Home are slice of life comedies. They both share a similar visual style and if you enjoyed the nature of one, you are likely to enjoy the other.
Both Chi's Sweet Home and Mainchi Kaasan are laid back with simple plots and basic art. They are both from TV Tokyo.
Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.
Adorable creatures, and ones that can sometimes get into trouble.
While Rascal moves on to the story of the young boy, it does spend a great deal of time with the raccoon as a youngin at the start of the series. Chi centers more around the cat than the family that owns the cat, but the harmless vibe is there for both. (both are Family friendly)
Rascal the Racoon, was an odd title a club of mine translated. It might be a bit hard to find a sub, but there is a French and Spanish version available on the net if you speak those languages.
