Go To
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 2 premiered in January of 2014, and Season 3 in July of 2015.

Wooser No Sono Higurashi provides examples of:

  • 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, and again in Episode 5 of Season 3, plus Manager Maneo and Ru-chan.
    • Followed by Iona in episode 2. She reappears in Episode 6 of Season 3, together with Kirishima and Haruna.
    • Senketsu in episode 5.
    • Chamber in episode 6.
    Wooser: "Chamber, what did they say?"
    Chamber: "They said, 'I'll call the cops'."
    • Chihaya Kisaragi makes a reluctant one in episode 8, when the group break into her apartment to celebrate her birthday.
    • Kuma/Teddie in Episode 9.
    • Monokuma drops by in episode 10.
    • Yukari in the stinger for episode 11.
    • Episode 1 of Season 3 features the Ultimate Force Zero and Pigmon.
    • Yui Mikoze appears at the end of Episode 3.
    • Angela in Episode 4.
    • Of all people, Hime-chan, the Crunchyroll mascot, gives a message in English in Episode 7.
    • Artist Mel Kishida in Episode 10. On his birthday, no less!
    • On the other hand Wooser himself cameos several times on Space Patrol Luluco. Fittingly, since the first part of the show is set in a town where humans and aliens coexist.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Seasons 1 and 2 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.
  • Hot Springs Episode: Episode 7 of Season 2, first part.
  • Lovable 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.
  • Mood Whiplash: The last episode of season 2, which is Wooser defending earth from an alien invasion. And possibly perishing...
  • NEET: Wooser, but don't say that to his face.
  • 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...
    • Black★Rock Shooter in episode 2.
    • Wooser opining on how he'd like to be a Grasshopper Hero.
    • Of all things, the "mascot" of anime streaming site Crunchyroll makes an appearance in one episode (voiced by one of their brand managers to boot).
