Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls is a YouTube-hosted Fanime series, which has gained a certain amount of infamy in some circles just for existing. The show chronicles the lives of Cat Girl Raku-chan, her best friend Koneko-chan, and the object of her desire, the blue-haired Hitoshi-san. Animated in MS Paint and supposedly voice acted by Japanese forum members, it's a confusing mishmash of Japanese Media Tropes and Gratuitous Japanese. Most episodes are but a few minutes long (including the theme songs), leaving little room for Plot or Character Development.By around the third episode it becomes apparent that Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls is probably a Stealth Parody of Western Otaku culture, and many viewers consider the creators to be Trolls of Tara Gilesbie proportions. However, the creators do have a trove of concept art and character designs that implies that this was a sincere project.You can watch the entire series on this playlist, and several episodes have also been uploaded to Nico Nico Douga for added MSTing fun. If you don't feel like you can face it alone, there is a "Let's Watch!" of the series here. The creator has a deviantARThere.Compare and contrasts to Tsuki Desu, Large Bagel, and Tokyo Crystal Mew.
Tropes that Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls provides an example of:
Cat Girl: Raku-chan and Koneko-chan are the eponymous "Neko Sugar Girls", though they're never referred to as such, and the fact that they're catgirls is never actually mentioned until Raku-chan turns into a cat.
Cerebus Syndrome: At first the show begins as some sort of Romantic Comedy style anime, but starting with the fourth episode it soon becomes dark once Raku-chan becomes infected with rabies. With no Snap Back or Status Quo to rely on, Raku-chan soon becomes weaker, before eventually running away due to feeling like a burden to her friends. Eventually, after what appears to be a message from some sort of divine entity, Raku-chan transforms into a full cat. Eventually she is returned to her former self, however it appears she is still suffering from the effects of the rabies. Meanwhile, Hitoshi-san beings to see his captor everywhere. Episode 9 reveals that Raku-chan had a bakeneko (or neko demon) inside of her, though it was taken out of her by Vet-sama. Of course to the audience, most of this will behilarious.
Series Continuity Error: In episode 5, Raku-chan is clearly wearing just a bra when she begins talking to Koneko-chan on the phone, but after the shot switches to Koneko-chan, she is immediately in her blue shirt.
Sudden Downer Ending: The finale ends with Raku confessing for Hitoshi, only to find out he's dating his stalker now. Raku dies of a broken kokoro and the final screenshot is Hitoshi's mortified face. The finale itself kept on going up and down with the mood, with one moment Raku nearly dying and the next we get happy montages.
As of December 2012, there are 10 episodes (not counting specials) comprising approximately 68 minutes of material. However, the intro and ending themes shave about 2 minutes off of each episode, giving us around of 62 minutes of actual storytelling, over 100 tropes and almost no actual plot. There has never been a show that did so much, and yet so little.
Useless Protagonist: Hitoshi. He looks to made out to be the Papa Wolf to Koneko and Raku, But as soon as episode two starts he is kidnapped without any trouble and has to be saved by Koneko and Raku in episode 3.
