Anime shorts with cats as the main characters! If you absolutely love anime about cats, then these are must-watch!

First bananya and nyabo is really similar both are cute adorable shows both have "nya" in the title and both are about cats they are really nice shows and if you finished bananya i would recomend nyabo to replace cute bananya

Bananya and Micciri Neko are both short shows focused on cats, each episodes features a certain characters and highlights them at the end. These two shows are animated very similarly and have the same sort of set up each episode. I would say both are kid-friendly and fairly laid back. If you liked one I would recommend the other.

Both are short anime about cute cats and are recommended to watch after watching a heavy show.

Both very adorable shows about cats that have some sort of quirk to them. Bananya is a banana, Poyo is spherical. Both have short episodes, 3 minutes long. Both will make you question your age and cry/gush with how adorable they are.

Bananya and Pingu in the City are both children's series with animals going on uncommon adventures which have developed a periphery demographic online. While Pingu in the City lacks narration, both are easily accessible for all ages due to the simplicity of their storytelling.

Both have protagonist with a goal they are determinated to complete. Both protagonists have friends that go along with them in the most part of time. Both animes have a focus in the humor but without forgetting the story. Both have focus in the character development.

Both cute, short and sweet anime series that will cleanse your palate after watching heavy shows, like Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress or D. Gray Man Hallow.

Both are short stories about cute, unique cats, that do cute things. 
report Recommended by NiklasNya
Both anime involve cute animals doing cute things, and amusing the viewer. They are probably targeted for children, but adults can enjoy them easily, too. They are short and you can watch entire season under 30 minutes (3min per episode).

Both anime are about animals that go about their lives while humans aren't around. 
report Recommended by BitterLemon
Both series are about cats that seem to have a special ability or trait that are absurd to your average cats (Mikan being a walking/talking/drinking alcohol cat, Bananya being a banana cat). Both are very fun watches for cat lovers, and are sure to bring a smile to your face. The differences would be Mikan Enikki is known to humans while Bananya is not, and Bananya is a very recent anime, made in 2016, while Mikan is a classic from the 90s.

Larva and Bananay are both lighthearted comedy series with small episodes and something to turn your brain off. :) So yeah if you need a short break then they are both great in their own way. One being overly cute and the other being more classic cartoonish humor :)

Short comedy anime with simple (but not bad) animation with protagonist who is an anthropomorphised food. Said protagonist is also cute.

If you like short hilarious series with minimalistic flash-like artstyle, Bananya and Kuruneko are brilliant choices! Both portray cute cats and relationship between them and are quite the same in mood.

Cute and funny short story of a cat . Great artwork and music. 
report Recommended by keyzc
Cute and funny 3 minutes long episodes can be found in both series. If you like one of them and want to chill with a short comedy anime, the second one is right for you.
