This actually looks promising, at least graphics-wise.

I wander what ppl do they think is going to watch it. Losing superpowers and adding blood isn't going to help them with pre school kids (or atleast their parents) and I can't see many other ppl who could care about bunnys shooting each other. Altho CatShitOne is very promising name.

A little research (well, almost no research, Google hardly counts as "reserch" whe it in turn just spews back Wiki ) turned up this info... there US release of the comic was called Apocalypse Meow...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse_Meow

Apocalypse Meow is a three volume manga series written and illustrated by Motofumi Kobayashi. It was originally published in Japan as Cat Shit One in 1998 by Softbank Publishing, but was renamed for the US release to parody the title of the film Apocalypse Now, which also took place during the Vietnam War. It was published in the UK in 2004 by ADV Manga. It was also released in Poland in 2006, also under the title Cat Shit One. It has been released in France, Belgium and Spain too, as Cat Shit One, by Glénat in 2006.[1]
A computer-generated anime adaptation of Cat Shit One by Studio Anima is in the works.[2] The story will, however, revolve around the Iran hostage crisis, rather than Vietnam.[3]

Plot
The manga follows three American soldiers in the Vietnam War named Bota, Perky and Rats. All three are in the recon group called Cat Shit One. Each mission (or chapter) shows the daily activities of the reconnaissance group in Vietnam. There are sections of the manga which give brief history and truths behind the war, such as the types of weapons used by different countries and the activities of forces in the war. At the end of volume one there is a chapter called Dog Shit One — separate from the main story — showing human characters.

[edit] Character depiction


The manga depicts the characters as different animals according to their nationality as follows:

It seems that the only thing Wiki gets right is the enforcement of copyright on images which partly explains why Wiki is so poorly illustrated .. the rest is as to be expected from a "collective body of knowledge" - it's just common stereotypes, misconceptions and popular folklore and anectdotes presented as "facts".

Sadly, this new flawed and factless revisionist history is eventually going to become the "main stream" and non-fictional research driven volume format encyclopedias will themseleves become misrepresented demons of the past
