Need more Cat Soup anime recommendations? A very unusual story from most anime series, Cat Soup was one of those random shows that did fairly well for itself despite having a very strange story and artstyle. After trying to save his sister's life, and losing her soul in the process, Nyatto must go on a journey in order to get it back. However, his sister is still very much alive and wanders with him, completely brain dead.

You would think that finding anime like Cat Soup would be difficult, if not impossible, to find, but anime is always full of surprises. If you're looking for the next oddball show to watch, we've got you covered with this list of Cat Soup recommendations. Stories like Night on the Galactic Railroad are equally as unique and still have a theme around cats being the main character. When Giovanni goes on an adventure with his best friend, the two are amazed at just what kind of places and people are out there. Or, if you're just looking for a cute cat anime, Chi's Sweet Home may just be the perfect follow up; the everyday life of a house cat isn't all that boring! 

Vote up the best anime like Cat Soup you'd most recommend to other fans of the series!
