Bunz and KatzThere is an alien force out to invade Earth. They has been studying Dirt (aka Earth) for years through our satellite transmissions and they have come to believe that the planet is filled with sailor girls, giant robots, and cute mascots. Did I mention that the satellite feeds they were monitoring were anime? To prepare for the invasion, the alien force deployed a scout ship armed with a fierce solider and her companion. The pair have disguised themselves as a sailor bunny girl named Bunz and a robot cat-like creature named Katz. Bunz and Katz discover that Dirt is quite unlike what they imagined and the inhabitants don’t heed the plans for total annihilation, especially when they are dressed like anime characters.

Bunz ‘n’ Katz is a single panel webcomic drawn by Josh Quagmire. It pokes fun at anime culture and humanity’s apathy. Bunz and Katz represent a conquering alien race, but no one takes them seriously. They are comically confused about why the humans don’t cower in fear about their impending doom and they strike out to trying to fulfill their mission. This, of course, leads to hilarious misunderstandings prone to make any anime geek or those familiar with anime stereotypes smile. Most of the comics are one-page gags that revolve around the duo’s attempts to enforce their miss; there is a continuous plot but it usually takes a backseat to the humor.

The comic’s art resides completely on the borderline of reader liking it or disliking it. It’s not quite anime-style, it’s not quite American, it is Quagmire’s parody mishmash he has labeled as comix. I wouldn’t go so far as to label it a “comix” webcomic, which brings to mind the underground era and Robert Crumb. The art is an exaggeration of multiple styles and suits the story.

Bunz ‘n’ Katz may have sporadic updates, but it doles out laughter quicker than Katz can do an impression (inside joke, read the comic!).
