Michael the orange tiger cat returns for another series of vignettes.

The sketches this time include a three-part send-up of The Fugitive, the famous 1960's TV show. Richard Kimble is now a veterinarian on the lam (lamb?), running from a false conviction for a murder committed by "a man with overbite." Despite the omnipresent danger, he must stoop and intervene whenever he sees a cat (always Michael) suffering; after treating the patient, he plays a trick on the cat and runs away. (He's a fugitive, after all.) Another sketch draws parallels between wandering husbands and wandering house cats, who seem to have similar proclivities. Two more point out what happens when a cat's instincts run up against the requirements of baseball or pro wrestling.

Not a lot to say about "What's Michael? 2". This sequel to "What's Michael?" is just more of the same. I was hoping to see improvement from the first OVA and so I was pretty disheartened to find absolutely nothing had changed. If this second OVA had dropped the cat abuse I would give it a slightly higher score just for that, but it's still there so...

There's no overarching story between the first and second OVA, so if you watched the first OVA you're not missing anything by not going on to watch this. If you didn't like the first OVA, I would strongly encourage ...

Not as unpalatable as the original, but that's not saying much since this one is still pretty terrible. It's not the animation or even the voice acting/sound/music so much as it is the general vibe of the show. They try for gags, but the gags just aren't funny. A lot of them revolve around infidelity and animal abuse. At least there was no nudity in this one. Also, I guess this is an art design issue, but the cats just look creepy. I think they're supposed to be cute, but they have dead eyes and bizarre facial expressions. So it's especially uncomfortable when they dance, ...
