Don't let the looks fool you, this is no simple children's show. While the setup is the same, this show has very mature humor and even a decent amount of death and gore. Anyone who doesn't mind somewhat dated animation and dark humor should be in for a real treat with this series...and it only takes about 30 min to watch the entire thing.

Animation - 7
The art is pretty old fashioned as well as simplistic since it's portrayed similar to a children's show, but I think it adds to the appeal. The simplistic style lets the viewer take in everything that's happening on the screen read more

Nekojiru is about a family of personified cats, focusing primarily on the older sister and her baby brother, as they interact with humans and other talking animals. The duo is selfish and cruel, beating up anyone who gets in the way of their fun.

As a result, these episodes often feature brutal mutilation and death, especially when the much-maligned pigs are involved. At first, this type of bloody gag comedy is fresh and funny, especially considering the cute and childish animation aesthetic.

However, very quickly, the humor starts to feel over-used, boring, and worst of all, predictable. The first two times pigs get killed, it`s funny, but read more

Nekojiru is a bit more grown up than Higepiyo but they are very similar.
Both are extremely crude in it's humour and in it's characters.
