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

This show tends to get compared to Happy Tree Friends, but it comes from a very different place from that.

People tend to label violence and alcoholism and the like as "adult" themes and teenagers particularly will gleefully consume things that are "adult" because it's cool and edgy. This appeal of deviance explains the popularity of "Happy Tree Friends". But that's not what Nekojiru is about.

Childhood is not as sanitary as western media would have you believe. Nekojiru comes from a place that is thoroughly childlike and innocent. Children are morbid and curious, brutal and cruel, innocent and nonjudgmental. Children like to kill bugs, and ask read more

*This is my very first review, so I apologize if I do things wrong xD;*

This "show" (more of a series of shorts) is extremely dark for what it is and looks like. Basically, mix Hello Kitty with Happy Tree Friends and you get this.
It's very simplistic in animation, yet has scenes with gore and blood.
Also, lots of pig racism. Lots and lots of it.
The humor was dark and crude, and, honestly, I enjoy that type of humor, so the 30 minutes it took of my time was worth it for me, but if dark humor isn't your thing, stay away from this series.
