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 is not an anime that stands out because of its art, sound or neither an amazing plot, but oh boi do I enjoy it.

You would enjoy it if:
- You are a fan of hamsters
- You enjoy/don't mind explicit content
- You are not looking for an elaborate plot

English sub(had some brief moments of english dubbed.)

If you can look past the animal cruelty with is kind of hard to do, this make for an interesting show. I like the English language because it has a lot of play on words. That is precisely what this focus here; Except not English but Japanese. Jokes were funny to some regard but were frankly over done and kind of silly. Silly due to childlike humor and veered left when it clearly was going right seconds before in a matter of speaking.

Ecchi is perhaps a reason one would watch this. Sadly i have to ...

It's a shame that such marvelous show doesn't have more reviews. It's short, quirky and unique comedy. The show is about daily life of a woman who lives in an apartment with her pet, who does the chores. The comedy is heavily based on characters and their interaction than other elements. Story is one of them and the show feels like it's slowly paced and barely any changes happen at all. But that's the only downside, characters and situation are on the focus and create amazing atmosphere.
The show is comedy of character. We don't know much about the characters: most of their names, occupations ...
