Short Film Recommendation

What could be cooler than tactical bunnies shooting terrorist camels? Clearly the Japanese don’t have the racial issues we do here. But I just watched this and it looks fun. Blackhawk down with bunnies, basically. It’s called Cat Shit One. Here’s the trailer.

I’m not sure where you can buy this, or even if it’s available in the US, but presumably it will be. Resourceful people can probably find it.

    Dude… the Japanese racial issues make ours look like a tea party tiff.

    My understanding is they don’t have much of an issue being racist, or what we would consider racist here.

    It’s episode one of a series that just started airing.

    If you search around for “Cat shit one” and “apoalypse meow” you can find the original comic book (manga) version of this, which was set in vietnam using the same characters.

    The US guys are rabbits because it’s a japanese pun. The word for rabbit is apparently “usagi” which when romanized spells USA GI. The terrorists are camels because, um, yeah.

  4. Jim W says:

    And yeah, it’s available. Torrents abound.

    A friend of mine introduced me to it a few days ago… I didn’t get around to watching it until last night.

    The whole thing is good, but the funniest scene is when Perky tells Botatsky that he has too much stuff on his rifle.

    John A,
    good (somewhat) news! There was an english translation of the manga (as Apocalypse Meow) 16 years ago. The bad news is it’s out of print and copies are selling for big bucks.
    http://www.amazon.com/Apocalypse-Meow-1-Motofumi-Kobayashi/dp/1413900178/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1279743251&sr=8-2

    I have the 3 book series, and it’s a fun read, and well drawn.

    Expect the anime to make it to the US next year in english.

    Nice! I’ve read Apocalypse Meow before. Too bad youtube pulled the vid, it might get people interested in the show. Way to force people into torrenting it, youtube!!

    I think they have it set up so that only people in Japan can watch it on youtube.
