Storyline

Ebichu the hamster seems like the perfect house pet: she cleans, shops, cooks, does laundry, and anything to please her master, known only as "Office Lady" (OL). Unfortunately, OL and her unfaithful boyfriend, combined with Ebichu's uncontrollable exuberance and love for ice cream, often earn her severe and bloody punishment. However, Ebichu doesn't seem to mind the abuse if she achieves her goal of making her beloved master a little bit happier. Written by Anonymous

You may never look at Hamsters the same way again...
8 July 2003 | by kyllir02See all my reviews

I must admit when I first heard of Ebichu, the housekeeping hamster, I was sceptical, the picture I was shown was a horrendously cute hamster, but after I watched it, I was completely blown away! This anime throws stereotyped hamster stories out the window! Ebichu is a talking hamster that keeps house for her master, who is an office lady, and is at what is considered the oldest a woman can get before losing all chances of getting a decent husband. It was originally aired in Japan in a program block called 'anime bubble bubble hour' or 'anime awa awa awa' (awa is bubble in hiragana, and hour in katakana, its quite clever) What this program did was stretch the limits of what could be shown on television, Ebichu, while cute and naiive, can also at times be quite dirty-minded, and her master can at times be plain dirty, the humor in this show is more than enough to keep me coming back to watch more! I warn you though, you will never look at chestnuts and squirrels the same way again! Or animes about hamsters for that matter...
