Manga: Wooser No Sono Higurashi
Wooser no Sono Higurashi (Wooser's Hand To Mouth Life) is a CGI anime series, premiering in the fall of 2012. It follows the daily exploits of Wooser, a strange creature resembling a mouthless bunny, and his random thoughts, percolated with his occasional lechering at Rin and Ren, the girls whose house he bums in.Season two premiered in January of 2014.
Wooser No Sono Higurashi provides examples of:
- A Date with Rosie Palms: In one episode, Wooser is right about to engage in this... but he steps on a tack, and it hurts so much his soul comes out of his body. In the end, body and soul are lying in bed next to each other, so Wooser did get to spend time with himself.
- Art Shift: Constantly. Apart from the style seen in the main image, the show switches to pixelled art in-between shorts, and sometimes it uses more traditional Anime style.
- Episode 1 of Season 2 is the best example, as it is entirely animated in that style, making viewers believe the whole season is going to be like that, only for Wooser to come out of his "costume" and greet the audience at the very end.
- The Cameo: Fellow Sanzigen Studio star Miss Monochrome, during the first episode of season 2.
Wooser: "Chamber, what did they say?"
- Followed by Iona in episode 2.
- Senketsu in episode 5.
- Chamber in episode 6.
- Which managed to include an Actor Allusion, to boot:
- "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Both ending themes are sung by cast members (Tia and Mamoru Miyano respectively).
- Expy: Look at Rin in the image above. She resembles Chie Satonaka in her casual outfit.
- Fetish: Wooser's is high school uniforms.
- Furry Confusion: Wooser loves eating meat and other characters wonder if he eats rabbit meat.
- Subverted, he's an alien.
- Hot Springs Episode: Episode 7 of Season 2, first part.
- Loveable Sex Maniac: Wooser, oh so much.
- Magical Girl: Rin and Len transform to fight a giant Wooser in one episode.
- Medium Awareness: Episode 3 has Wooser declare the series is cancelled due to his illness.
- "I'm getting sick of these collaborations!"
- Mood Whiplash: The last episode of season 2, which is Wooser defending earth from an alien invasion. And possibly perishing...
- No Mouth: The black dot is his nose.
- NoseBleed: Wooser in the second episode after lying down on a flight of stairs to see a girl's panties as she walked over him.
- He does it again at the hot springs.
- Posthumous Narration: In the last part of episode 2 at Wooser's funeral.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Wooser only looks the part.
- Schrödinger's Butterfly: In Episode 5 of Season 2, Wooser monologues about using his dreams to become a hero. We are then treated to a vision of him arriving from outer space, saving babies Rin and Len from a fire in which their parents were killed, and basically raising them afterwards. This could be easily attributed to one of Wooser's delusions, but at the same time he's making his speech, Rin says "Mama... Papa..." in her sleep, implying it all really happened.
- Shout-Out: In the introduction, both girls are wearing a very peculiar hat and overall...
