Neko Pitcher

I'd like to show you the newest cartoon to be featured in The Japan News newspaper, called Neko Pitcher... about a cat who is a baseball pitcher... which seems appropriate enough since my son is making me watch a horribly predictable movie called Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch... a 2002 movie about a dog who... whatever.

Neko Pitcher--that's him in the image above--is written and drawn by Sonishi Kenji (surname first).

Anyhow, click HERE for a look at Neko Pitcher, which has been translated quite well from its native Japanese to English.

I'm just not sure if it's supposed to be funny or not - because it's only mildly amusing.

I know one shouldn't criticize unless one can do better themselves, but the concept just seems weak...I mean that cat isn't even wearing a uniform! Where's his baseball cap? How does he grab a baseball without a thumb?

Does the cat throw anything other than furballs?

I'm not sure which is turning me off baseball more... Still... you get 27 outs before the game is over...
