Americans Think of Zombie Apocalypses, Japanese Think Of….

…donut kitty apocalypses.

No, seriously, it’s a story about Donyatsu, a kitty-shaped intelligent donut, as he wakes up in a world full of dead humans, predatory mice, and other donut animals. I kid you not.



There are times when it’s a bit gross, as the manga likes to have the occasional poop joke once in awhile. The artwork of the empty world though is detailed and haunting, and the cats come across as gentler versions of survivors. They even regrow if eaten, and soon an assortment of cats and other food animals are gathered together simply for companionship, and answers about what happened to all the humans? You wouldn’t think a silly premise would be so compelling, ┬ábut it is.
