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!
Being both web shows of only 5 minutes [:'(], Hetalia and Higepiyo shows that even 5 minutes is enough to give top notch quality comedy to viewers and fans.
Hetalia skillfully posts a great deal of comedy while keeping the historic happening and facts intact.
Higepiyo demonstrates how it would be like if a chick got smart and sassy. This anime also shows how little things we overlook can be a big deal to anyone else.
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
Both are comedy/parody anime that are made up of short episodes. Hetalia parodies world history while Lychee DE Light Club parodies the manga it's (loosely) based on. Personally, I thought Hetalia was much better than Lychee, but if you like parody anime that has episodes that are 5 minutes long or less, then you might as well check out both.
The year is Future Century 60; much of mankind now lives in colonies surrounding the earth. After being ravaged by countless wars, every four years the dominance over the colonies is decided in a martial arts tournament called the Gundam Fight. This year marks the 13th tournament, and Gundam Fighters representing their colonies have begun to gather. Their purpose is to fight, and fight, until only one remains to claim the title "Gundam of Gundams." But Domon Kasshu, Neo Japan’s representative, has another secret mission; and should he fail, all of mankind may pay the price. Gundam Fight! Ready! Go!
Do you like the worlds countries projected in funny and interesting ways? Look no further than these 2 titles. G Gundam tries to take its self a little seriously and has mecha in it where Hetalia is pure parody and features chibi characters sometimes but both will make you laugh at how countries are represented. Check em out!
In the name of keeping global peace, politicians have come up with a new method of sorting out disputes: they meet in locations across the world and wager on a game of Mahjong. Koizumi is the former Prime Minister of Japan’s Cabinet who is not only a Mahjong master, but won't let anything stop him from attending a game – not even three bullets to the chest from hired hitmen! No matter what obstacles appear in his path, be they alien-controlled ministers, weapons of mass destruction hurtling towards Tokyo, or the resurrected form of Chairman Mao, Koizumi will play his best hand, down to the very last tile.
One features countries as bishonen (Bishonen world leaders) kinda acting out history; the other features world leaders playing mahjong. Both are better than they sound.
It's silliness and absurdity abound as neither could be taken seriously and are pretty funny; if you're in the mood for something that wouldn't tax your brain and is comedic. And to top it off, both come in bite-sized installments so you wouldn't overindulge all at once if you watch a handful of episodes.
