Apocalypse Meow gets Animated

Filed under: Tacos — S. @ 11:10 am

Motofumi Kobayashi’s three volume manga series Cat Shit One took a look at the Vietnam War from the American soldier’s perspective on the ground with an animal twist. Not unlike Art Spiegelman’s epic Maus graphic novel, soldiers take on a more cutesy form with rabbits for Americans, cats for the Vietnamese, and a handful of other animals representing the other countries involved during the war. The series managed to make it to the American shore through ADV Manga’s short life as Apocalypse Meow.

Now Studio Anima, who typically animates CG scenes for video games, is bringing back the series with an updated storyline. Cat Shit One: The Animated Series moves the rabbits’ struggles from the American soldier in Vietnam to the private contract soldier fighting in Iraq. If URDA: The Third Reich can manage to get licensed, adorable bunnies with guns should be a shoe in.
