Ok, to be fair this anime makes little sense if you didn't read the manga, and unfortunately it is in itself super short (each episode running for about two minutes with twelve episodes in total), which results in a story that doesn't make a lot of sense.
So what is Donyatsu all about? A donut shaped cat awakes after a coma to find himself alone on the desolated streets of Tokyo: the humans and animals are nowhere in sight.
Our donut shaped protagonist has no idea who he is or what is his name, luckily for him he encounters a bagel cat, along with several
other pastry shaped animals; all appear to suffer from amnesia.
It's pretty funny, and interesting as you see these oddballs trying their best to make sense of what the hell happened on earth, especially in light of the urban landscape being decorated with human skeletons at nearly every turn.
Donyatsu does not rise any existential questions, nor does it try to get over your head, yet one thing is clear; there is something very dark lurking underneath the surface of this kiddy-like colourful anime.
I do recommend you read the manga: it's so much better and actually makes sense. The anime is more of a supplement.
What did you think of this review?
