Cat Soup (Nekojiru - Sou) is probably one of the trippiest anime I have ever watch, and it is also one of my favorite short films. A half - hour short film with cute cats, what could possibly happen right? No, trust me - this isn't for kids at all. From the first look, I thought the art was pretty like Hello Kitty. The art first looks like a hand - rush drawing from a young child. For some reason, I really like the artwork in here: It could be cute, odd and creepy at the same time. Even at the most disturbing scenes, I still can not move my eyes away. The plot is extremely strange though. It is about a young cat (Nyatta) traveling with his brain - dead sister (Nyako) to the dead land to get the half of her soul back (after Jizou took that half of her soul away from her). They go to a world that is as weird as hell, a world that everything could happen. The entire show gave me the feel like it is a dark, hallucinogenic and uncontrollable dream (reminds me of fever dreams). In the ending, I see that the cats return to their home together, and then the whole family disappeared together. This film maybe can be interpreted in different ways and you would not be wrong either way - It could be a happy film, or a sad film, depending on the way you think about it. In the end, I think Cat Soup is a deep, dark and unique anime. If you like weird stuffs and got interested in this, you could give it a try. It will not be like any anime you have watch before.
The anime is somewhat disappointed me, and stands no where near the manga (Kagerou days). The art was good, but not as the manga. The plot and way to described is too confused that I have to watch again three or four times to understand it. But the one which makes me disappointed the most was actually the music. I watch the project songs before and it's great (sang by the Vocaloids - IA and Miku) but the voice actor who sang those songs was ... Ughhh... So, at the end I think the manga was much better. If you are going to watch this, recommended you to watch the manga instead. The anime wasn't s good as I think, but still the plot was good.
Gintama is probably my favorite anime ever. It contains almost all kinds of tags (well, maybe not all but it's a lot). One of the best comedies ever. The firstly episodes, the anime was somewhat boring but if you keep patient and continue to watch, it will eventually become much better. The jokes are super hilarious and could makes you have a stomachache from laughing too much. Though the jokes are somehow ... dirty (some of it talk about balls, penis, etc. but still awesome jokes). The anime was also unique and famous for the ability to 'break the fourth wall' - in some episodes, even the characters just sitting there and complaining about the staff was too lazy, or the anime was too boring. The anime is just too funny and too good for entertaining. But that's not all. Gintama is the kind of anime could brought you all kinds of emotions: Happy, sad, angry, ... This anime is funny but it do have serious and tearjerker scenes (this happened surprisingly often in a comedy anime). When it comes to serious, the action was great and the power was so wonderful than you ever expected in a comedy anime. And especially Gintama have lots of tearjerker moments and sad pasts. Gintoki, the main character is a 'lazy poop samurai' - everyone think like that. Nobody knows that he has a sad past (he has no family, his teacher dead because of him, became homeless, ...) So as Kagura, the main female character - her mom dead, her dad always go away without looked after her, her brother joined Harusame, her whole family was corrupted...). The lately arcs in the anime (and chapters in manga) show that the anime is not always funny as everyone thinking. Highly recommended. It surely suitable for comedy - fans and sometimes tragedy - fans too.
