'All those rectangular faces? Oh, they'll turn round as well.' - Maru Maru, OP to PKN

Laydees. Dudes. Everything in between. Non-organic lifeforms. This - and I repeat, this - is the stuff. The anime of the season? There's some stiff competition, but quite possibly - there's a lot of potential in this lovechild of Chi's Sweet Home, Welcome to the NHK and Mawaru Penguindrum.

So, Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki (that's Fluffy Observation Diary to you peeps who like Anglais) is a story of a totally rad cat. The deal here is, and I'm not kidding, he's circular. Try to wrap your head around that for a bit. read more

Recently, there seems to be an increase of anime short series with episodes spanning from 2 to 3 minutes per episode. Pretty much all of these are comedies that rely on quick gags to entertain for their short running times. Needless to say it is not a very diverse field, and its pretty easy to tell whether the show will be a success or a dud almost instantly. Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki most certainly is a success. While I could simply say this is because the show's gags work and leave it at that, I will elaborate further because I'm silly and like to do this read more

Both are about a homeless cat who get's taken in by a family.
While Chi's Sweet Home is more concise and story-driven, Poyopoyo is a definitely a bit more ridiculous and all over the place.
Both are series about a different cat, but in Nyanpire the cat is a vampire-cat and in Poypoyo he's a round cat. And both have a short duration time~
