Ebichu the hamster seems like the perfect house pet: she cleans, shops, cooks, does laundry, and anything to please her master, known only as "Office Lady" (OL). Unfortunately, OL and her unfaithful boyfriend, combined with Ebichu's uncontrollable exuberance and love for ice cream, often earn her severe and bloody punishment. However, Ebichu doesn't seem to mind the abuse if she achieves her goal of making her beloved master a little bit happier.

Ebichu was one of the first anime series I watched. I got the DVD as a present and one dark and stormy day decided to watch it. Wow. For the first three episodes I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It is just plain weird. I can't describe it better. It_just_is_weird.

Ebichu is about a hamster called Ebichu. Her owner is a single office lady desperate to find a husband. Many jokes center around Ebichu's owner and her good-for-nothing boyfriend. What makes this show worth watching is its extreme humour that springs form this set-up. Warning to all American kids: Contains adult themes, watch this read more

This sort of feels like a mix between Shin-chan and Chi’s Sweet Home. It’s cute and talks of a cute little hamster’s life and how her owner is to her. In fact, the very first episode shows exactly how her master is… a useless bum. All this women seems to do is whine about her boyfriend and have sex with him. Yes, this shows them having sex a lot. The owner’s boyfriend seems useless to me. I don’t know why the owner hangs around him at all. The owner isn’t really that good herself.

Now that I have talked about all the bad things about read more

One of the funnier animes out there. Adult themes clash with animation and sound effects of a childrens' show. Humor, sex and kawaii in a perfect mix. Highly recommended!

Very simple graphics and animation, but that is kind of the point. The characters look dull at first glance, but once you get to know them, you can't imagine them looking any differently.

Can't give too high a score here, because of the simple looks, but on the other hand this anime really couldn't have a more appropriate animation.

The intro song is cute and catchy, but nothing too fabulous. The reason I rate the "sound" cathegory so high read more

To tell you the truth, they screened this at Otafest, and after watching up to episode 6, i kinda forced myself to watch it.

It's okay I guess, it's just that the comedy and adult humour was a bit to over the top. Looking at the the cover makes it look like a show for kids, but trust me, if you come across this, don't show it to them!

The art isn't the best but obviously the art was made to look like that as I assume the manga was made in the same style.

I didn't pay a lot of attention to the sounds, but one read more

both have similar styles, stupid characters, and the jokes are simply "under the belt"

but ebichu is a bit more... explicit
These comedies are very random, juvenile, absurd and crazy.

Both are comic shorts based on the work of Mangaka Itō Risa and feature speaking house pets. Ebichu is definitly for mature audiences only while Higepiyo is family friendly.
Comedy series which are both very silly in nature, although Ebichu is a lot more adult-oriented, and Azumanga is school-life. Ebichu and her master are comparable to Yomi and Tomo, in that one character teases and annoys the other, more serious character.
Both are short episodical anime full of toilet humor and don't make too much sense, also, both of them are trashy and fall under so-bad-it's-good category.

Both are bizarre, short comedies that don't hold back when it comes to the dirty stuff. Same kind of humor.
