After trawling through the database I came across a little known item called Neko Rahmen. Once reading about and also hearing that it was to be broadcast on Vuze I thought I'd give it a shot. However, I was ultimately left feeling somewhat disappointed.

Story: The anime essentially revolves around a cat which runs a ramen noodle restaurant and his only regular customer. Although at first it looked fairly promising, it almost inevitably became quite repetitive. Don't get me wrong, there were some episodes that were absolutely hilarious, but they were too few and far between. Let's just say variable to say the least.

I watched this little gem on Crunchyroll, and had a blast doing so. 30 minutes of sheer fun and laughs. Great voice acting for both main characters, Taisho and Tanaka.
The story is about a cat who was "destined" to be a model, or so he says. Anyway, he ends up on the skids...on the verge of suicide, he is saved by a ramen cook, who later befriends him and the rest is history as our hero, Taisho, tries to make an "honest living." Tanaka-kun, is the only real loyal customer he has and a funny one at that. Wait til you meet Taisho-kun's daddy...hilarious!

The character design is like is similar, with few colors and without much detail.
While both series have comedy , the difference is that 'There She Is' is more romantic, with much more music and history, while Neko Rahmen is more parody.
Both are series featuring animals main having a restaurant. Both have support characters that are human.
They're both cat-centric short-episode comedies, with offbeat art and jokes. Sometimes more bizarre than amusing, but strangely appealing and with catchy openings.

Poyopoyo is a lot more focused on cuteness and philosophy (especially ethics and metaphysics) however, while Neko Rahmen is more like a sitcom with social and consumerism satire.
Both is a comedy and take place in a ramen shop, where funny peole (or cats) meet each other. The apsurd japanese humor is the leading line of the act.
Neko Rahmen is a extremely random anime, Gyagu Manga Biyori is even more random! 0_o
Short, about kitten, flash-made and weird.
