Dark Side Cat is an upright-walking feline with a killer fashion sense, a natural talent for parkour, and a desire to smash as many cars, stores, and kick as many human heads as possible.

Essentially, he's a giant asshole, who makes life for the relatively innocent humans of his town an absolute nightmare.

It's an intriguing premise for a series, and with its fast pace and occasional laughs, Dark Side Cat is a quick, enjoyable 6 episode, 6 minute watch.

However, there are flaws preventing this from being anything truly great or special. For a series based around Dark Side Cat's dastardly exploits, there simply aren't that many read more

Ankoku Cat is a six episode ONA from Fanworks, a studio I've never reviewed or seen anything from before. Mainly because they haven't done that much. I only found about ten anime listed as having had them work on them, most of which are series with really short run times. So, let's take a look at Ankoku Cat and try to get some idea of what they're about.

Darkside cat is a strange, interesting show. It’s pretty much about a rebel humanoid cat that gets in trouble a lot with the law. In the course of one evening, chasing after a mouse, he breaks a fire hydrant, creates a traffic jam, and runs from the police. Now this show doesn’t really follow Dark Side cat but really what happens because of his interactions with the people of the city.

He himself is always silent with the same ‘bad boy’ look in his eyes and yet there are times that he actually does seem nice, mostly to the cats around the area. Each story read more

I hadn't even heard of this series before now. And, considering it's only 6 short episodes, hardly surprising, right? I needed a show with a black cat for an Anime Challenge though, and this fit the bill. And that was that.

[Story] [6/10]

Cats fighting (?) evil! CATching mice and causing trouble. Not much else to say about this, it feels like it could go on for a long time, with many many short episodes. It's fun, light, and episodic!

[Art] [7/10]
The art reminds me of western animation. It's very stylised, and not at all like the typical Japanese anime art. but it's solid and fun.
