Every town needs a hero. Unfortunately for the human residents of Dark City, theirs is a stray cat. Swooping from roof to roof, its first thought is always of food or being able to catch an elusive mouse – saving the day is just a fortunate side effect. From rescuing lost children to putting a stop to careless littering, Dark Cat finds himself caught up in numerous problems – though caring about none of them. As his name spreads, he finds himself the center of attention as reporters desperately try to snap the unlikely hero. Cheeky and mischievous, this feline favorite wants to protect his kind; but can this renegade kitty stay out of the clutches of a mayor determined to rid the city of strays?
Carving a lonely figure on the skyline of his home city, Catman is a solitary guy who spends his days as he pleases - except, he doesn’t always have that much luck and really hates the town he’s living in. From whiling away the hours at the slots to playing drunken games of bowling, Catman just gets on with life and does whatever he feels like.
Both series take a look at cats in the human world that cause interesting situations. Dark Cat actually has humans in the show where Catman turn cats into human like beings living out their daily lives. Both have a interesting soundtrack that helps the viewer feel more about the show, especially in Catman. Both are abstracty in their style and have short episode lengths, if you liked one I'm sure you'd enjoy the other.
Both Catman and Ankoku Cat are hort animations that focus on a less than normal feline. Though Ankoku Cat is more of an anti-hero, and Catman simply apathetic, both are characters that live outside of society's norms. Though the animation of both isn't particularly amazing, both heavily utilise music, so if you like one, you may enjoy the other.
Dark Side Cat and Catman both feature, as their names imply, feline main characters. The other one is a hero and the other, well... a little less so. Flash animation was used in the making of both titles, so if you liked the style in one, watch the other too!
Taishou is the dedicated owner and chef of a small ramen shop in Tokyo – and he's also… a cat?! Though enthusiastic to run the best possible eatery, the feline's cooking skills leave much to be desired – a fact that Tanaka-san, Taishou's most frequent customer, experiences on a regular basis. With part time helpers such as a kleptomaniac bum, and schemes to bring in business such as serving a restaurant critic gourmet food instead of the usual swill, Taishou's ramen shop is never a dull place to patronize or work at!
Both anime are about cats causing mischief for the town they live in. Both have interesting animation from the norm and have short episode lengths. Both are cute comedies that are sure to get a giggle or 2 out of you. I found Neko Rahmen to be WAY more hilarious. Check out one if you liked the other.
Both Ankoku Cat and Neko Rahmen are short animations that focus on the lives of an odd cat who has a habit of causing mischief. Both are fairly comedic, particularly when it comes to the reactions human have to the felines' antics.
Catman is still revelling in his solitary lifestyle, and wanders the streets passing the time however he sees fit. From becoming inspired by his kung-fu movie hero, to starting up a feud with a local apple salesman, the apathetic and foul-mouthed feline takes each day as it comes, even if it means getting beaten up or losing a possible lover…
Dark Side Cat and Catman II are both short anime about a cat who doesn't really fit in, who tries his hardest to be the best at what he does, but usually fails. The animation styles are also what these titles share, so consider watching both.
Catman is still as unlucky as ever, to the point where even falling from a building leads to him to become an enemy of the cheese-bearing mafia! Though his life is anything but dull due to encounters with flirtatious booze hounds and street gamblers, Catman is content to live the way he wants: moving from one drink-fueled brawl to the next.
Both these titles feature a cat as the main character, who both fall short of being a hero, no matter how much they'd like to be one. Although in Catman III, the animation style has changed quite a bit compared to it's prequels, I'd still recommend watching Dark Side Cat as well.
Reinya is an ordinary convenience store clerk – by day that is; but at night she becomes the notorious thief, Kaitou Reinya. From her secret underground base, the young robber spends her time freely alongside her accomplice, Chutaro, as she plans her next great heist or simply watches her favourite soap opera. No matter what the loot, as long as it’s gold and catches her eye, then Reinya will steal it and claim it for her own, all while avoiding the semi-watchful eyes of the Oedo Police Department.
Both anime are about cats or cat like people causing mischief for the town they live in. Both have interesting animation from the norm and have short episode lengths. Both are cute comedies that are sure to get a giggle or 2 out of you. Check out one if you liked the other.
