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.

Cat Soup and Super Kuma-san are two really, really messed up one episode OVAs with the perfect combination of cuteness and creepiness to make for a hilariously wicked watch! Both are HIGHLY recommended from me.

NekoRocket
Okay, I blame Sothis for this... :) Both of these are one-shot OVA's about... well... weird things. Where Cat Soup takes a more surrealistic approach and boggles your mind with random melding images, Super Kuma-san takes something perfectly normal and distorts reality with it to the point where you begin to question the animators' substance abuse habits. I can't recommend these enough, if you enjoy random and just plain weird things.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Super Kuma-san and FLCL share a very quirky abstract weirdness that can't properly be defined. If you found one amusing, then I'm sure you'd get a real kick out of the other. Neither one is very long, and could easily be seen through to the end in a very short time. quite funny.

Super Kuma-san... I didn't get it. But it reminded me of FLCL. And that show I got and thoroughly enjoyed. So if you've watched and enjoyed Super Kuma-san and are looking for more out-there wackness, be sure to pick up the amazing FLCL.

In the year 20XX, insects have developed immunity to every kind of insect spray. To counter the incredible rise in insect numbers the Japanese government developed tiny extermination robots code named "Hoihoi-san". The popularity of Hoihoi-san units rises not only as a night time extermination unit, but for doll collectors as well! However, when a rival company introduces its own tiny extermination robots a new form of corporate sabotage begins, as they target not only the insects, but all Hoihoi-san units themselves!

It amazes me how bizarre these one episode OVAs can get, and Super Kuma San and Hoihoi-san definitely excel in that department. With a short run time and plenty of wackiness to occur, you'd have to enjoy one if you liked the other.

In both anime cute, toys/toylike creations pack a mean punch, shocking many of the unexpecting human witnesses. The cuteness in appearance and some actions are contrasted with bursts of energetic violence.

Afro-ken

Afro-ken

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?

Both have similar animation and make little sence if any. Lots of randomness. If you liked one you'll like the other.

Atama Yama

Atama Yama
  • OVA (1 ep x 10 min)
  • 2002

After a miserly man consumes a batch of freshly-fallen cherries (seeds included), he finds himself in a hairy and unfortunate situation - a small cherry tree has sprouted from his balding forehead! With his mountain-like head becoming a tourist attraction, what's a miser to do?

While Atama Yama and Super Kuma-san don't share much in common other than extreme weirdness and a sort of surrealistic set of imagery, I can only think that if you really enjoy one, you can't help but enjoy the other.
