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!
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.
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.
Kappas (Water Imps) and humans have a long history together in Japan, and in today's urbanised world, kappas can be purchased as pets. This is what a young man decides to do, and names his water imp 'Kaatan'. With no prior experience of keeping kappas, the new pet-owner consults a 'How to Raise a Water Imp' manual. He cares for, tames, and trains Kaatan, enjoying the imp's charms and patiently enduring his messes! Whether it's potty training or going out to play with other kappas, there's always an adventure for Kaatan and his new owner.
While Kappa no Kaikata is of a more gentle nature, both that and Higepiyo are about ordinary people adapting to living with a rather unsual pet. Higepiyo is much more wacky, but both are comedic, slice of life anime, so if you like one, then why not try the other.
Both anime are about their owner and a strange pet. Both have rather interesting funny moments to them and heartwarming ones. Sometimes they get just plain strange. Both have short episodes as well. Try one if you liked the other.

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.
The battle between good and evil wages on in the town of Kawasaki! Sunred, a sarcastic, cranky hero often battles the forces of Florsheim, an evil organization out to achieve world domination! But for General Vamp and the rest of the Florsheim gang, attaining such a goal won’t be easy.

If you like slapstick comedy. These two anime would be a good choice to start on. Tentai Senshi Sunred shows how the battle of good and evil can turn so childish. Higepiyo shows how little things would matter to anyone.
