Awfully biased and boring

The most obvious problem of this series is its huge bias. The cute little rabbits are the brave warriors that spend most of their time in heroic missions where they kill the cruel cats, sometimes depicted as treacherous terrorists. Guess which ones are the American and which one the Vietnamese. Would you read a comics where some nice little soviet rabbits kill the ugly afghan cats in the 80s? Or some cute nazi rabbits fight against the treacherous terrorists cats of occupied Europe? Please don't compare this to Maus. Both depict humans under animal traits, but Art Spiegelman makes a subtle use of this to add depth to his story and its faceted characters.

In this manga, there are a few hints that the situation is complex, but the global atmosphere is still this extreme caricature. You won't read about the massive use of napalm (that the USA first experimented in Greece to protect the junta), the mass deportation of villagers, the frequent murders of civilians.. even the genesis of the conflict is hidden. Most of the manga is made of independent missions, mostly theatral fights against Vietcong. It's not only biased and simplistic, it's boring.

Even the drawings lack charisma. The rabbits often look stuffed and motionless, and the pictures feel static.

to comment the rabbits vs cats thingie. the mangaka clearly took a page out of art spiegelmans pulitzer winning graphic novel titled Maus where he recounts his fathers struggles to survive holocaust. he used antropomorphic animals to convey the story, mice were jews, cats were germans, dogs were americans etc. in apocalypse meow rabbits are americans, cats are vietnamese, monkeys were japanese and i dont think it was intended as being funny as the story follows american recon team in vietnam war.

just so you wont skip this manga solely on the comment of a silly war between rabbits and cats.
