I don't know why this exists, but nevertheless I'm happy that it does. Thank you random Youtube recommendations.

The story of Akai Kutsu! Onnanoko! is the equivalent to a Looney Toons sketch. A disguised cat stalks a mouse, corners its prey, leaps.....and somehow manages to miss entirely falling to his death off a three story building. I was immediately hit by a wave of nostalgia remembering Tom, Sylvester and Wile E Coyote as they chased their prey to no avail. Comedy needs to be added as a genre to this short film.

While poor animation and below standard character designs are usually negatives, it only helps to accentuate the silliness of this short. Even if this was likely targeted towards children, the mature can still find brief entertainment in a classic cat and mouse chase with a hilariously predictable outcome.
