chii’s Anime Snack of the Week: Catman

There are plenty of people out there that love to make weird and interesting series from time to time. Catman is just one of these kind of titles. This web flash animation was Ryosuke Aoike's first work and ended up winning him a GRAFIKA design festival prize for Best Digital Animation. We follow Catman in his human like world as he goes through his daily routines and has some awesome random adventures.

Catman loves his cigarettes









Positive Points

  • It's short so it'll take under an hour to watch all 3 series
  • No talking, just subtitles
  • Got some pretty kick ass songs played during the show
  • Fun just to sit back and watch

I hate it when that happens too

Gambling machines are evil








Negative Points

  • The animation might be a turn off
  • It doesn't really go anywhere
  • Some might not overly enjoy Ska Punk music which is played all through the animation
  • Might be too random

Catman watches movies









Catman gets beaten up a lot

Why chii thinks you should watch it

If you are anything like me and enjoy shorts of animation, this series is a must watch. I also really like the fact that it was made in Montreal, Canada and that the music was even done by a local Montreal Ska Punk band, The Planet Smashers. All 3 web flash animations get a solid 7/10 from me. Watching Catman go about on his daily routines really makes you think about just how simple and complicated living ones life can be.

Day 195/365


From the anime Catman, Catman is a cat that is Anthropomorphism. Follow him as he goes on about his daily life in a city with many other cats like himself.

Why I like him: He drinks, goes bowling, and ponders many things in life, like love.

Why I hate him: Nope, he's one cool cat... lol

Overall: Short and random Catman spans 3 short series that I actually enjoyed a far amount. No talking, just subtitles with music by The Planet Smashers.
