Moe Cockroach

It has happened. They have made a moe manga where the main character is a cockroach. It's a comedy slice of life 4koma, so it's not incredibly deep or complex, but the premise and character design are cute and not something you see everyday.



Spoiler for sample page:

All I have to say is that if cockroaches were actually that cute, they would already rule the world.

To me, this series is interesting for two reasons.
1: It has cute cockroaches doing cute things.
2: It's interesting from a more "academic" point of view as well. Reading this is sort of like exploring the frontiers of moe. I mean, I never thought I would see a scene where the main character is getting sprayed with insecticide and go "Awww, that's cute."

Saw this on Sankaku a few months back.

Ask yourself this: Can you ever smear that poor little thing into a paste under your heel? Cockroaches have feelings too!

Oh lol, I'll be sure to check this.

I can already picture her having lots of bug-moe friends to tag along.

Nay! Cockroaches must be exterminated with extreme prejudice. With Pesticide!

(Insert Evil Laugh!)

Aww, she looks so cute, but I'll still be destroying those things when I see them...
*shudders* Sorry, I can't stand those things.

Looks like a good 4-panel though, maybe I should check it out further.

Fun idea so I'll be checking it out.

Kinda reminds me of Chokotto Hime, which btw is like insanely moe. If you like this should def check out Chokotto Hime.

Um... my default method for handling adult cockroaches is to... run from them like a baby.

Muri, muri, muri, muri... the thought of cockroach innards smeared across my heel is enough to send shivers down my spine. Please think of my feelings!

Ok so since the thread title does not compute, I thought I'd take a look, thinking "how the hell..." anyway, this looks fun, so I'll be following it...but owe is the name of the cockroach that shalt cross mine path!

No! All Cockroaches must be exterminated! No mercy shall be given! Dalek-style extermination of the pests preferred!!

I've had this on my Wish List for a while. It looks very adorable so I'll probably be checking it out soon.

But it still doesn't change the way I think about cockroaches. Maybe if they were all as moe as this one I would be less inclined to step on them.

Chapter 2 is out, and we get to meet a new character! Even if our heroine isn't good at making human friends, she sure is nice to her cockroach friends.

"Someday, I'll crawl all over your face!" It's no surprise the poor conductor freaked out so much Btw how come they're always hungry and aim for actual food instead of leftovers?

So, the official title is Cockroach Girls?

I was already getting used to call this Moe Cockroach instead.
