* VillainProtagonist: A less outwardly villainous example than most, but it's still noticeable. Nyatta may be trying to bring his sister back to life, but he repeatedly displays cruelty against others, ''especially'' the pig.

It centers around a family of anthropomorphic cats, specifically two kittens: the [[IllGirl terminally ill]] Nyako and her younger brother Nyatta. After Nyako dies, Nyatta manages to take back [[OurSoulsAreDifferent half of her soul]] from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ksitigarbha Jizou]]. This brings her back to life, but leaves her braindead. Determined to bring his sister back to normal, he goes on a surreal journey through [[SpiritWorld the land of the dead]] [[ToHellAndBack to retrieve the other half]]. [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Or something.]]

*** In the manga, Nyako gets a PantyShot. It's about as gross as it sounds.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodyHilariousBloodyHilarious: Nyako gets splattered with blood at the circus.



* FanDisservice: At one point, the camera has a rather lingering view of an ass. [[BodyHorror Just an ass]].
** There's also the mansion scene, when Nyatta and Nyako are almost [[ItMakesSenseInContext eaten alive by an obese man in bondage gear]].



* GainaxEnding

to:

* GainaxEndingGainaxEnding: Nyatta [[spoiler: ends up erasing all of reality by bring his sister back to life]].



* MeaningfulName: Nyatta and Nyako's names start with the Japanese onomatopoeia for a cat's meow.

* AutoCannibalism: The Pig ends up being served some of its own fat, by Nyako.

* CarnivoreConfusion: Nyako befriends a pig, [[CatsAreMean butchers him alive]], and [[ITasteDelicious shares his meat with him]].
* CatsAreMean: Nyako is pretty vicious to anyone who isn't a family member.
* CessationOfExistence: [[spoiler:Nyako's family, the world itself, and you, all die in this fashion.]]
** Subverted when time stops; Nyako breaks off and stomps on a person's teardrop...whatever ''that's'' supposed to mean.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:After the quest is over, Nyako's family disappears one by one, and then...]]
* EarCleaning: Nyako's father does this to him early on in the movie. Seeing how Nyaako just ran all night to try and get back his sister, this scene could be considered a HeartwarmingMoment.
** Actually, he's cleaning his ears because he found Nyako half-drowned in the tub. While Nyako was half-dead, he spirit-walked outside his body and noticed Jizou taking his sister's soul, took it back, and when his father revived him by pulling him out of the bath, he still had the soul. To add insult to injury, Nyako's dad is so drunk he doesn't actually even notice Nyako is still unconscious while he does so; Nyako only wakes up just before the mother runs in to announce the death of Nyatta.

* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: There's a scene where Nyako imagines samurai cutting up a fish until there's nothing left of it but its head, bones, and tailfin (that it somehow is able to walk on). Then it swims in the water and ends up on the beach... it's supposed to be symbolic.
