Sometime in the future, insects on Earth have become immune to insecticides. As such, small, uber-kawaii dolls have been created to take care of insect problems. Thus they battle insects with their vast array of weapons, and do other things as well.

[1 OAV episode (10 Min Long), based on the 4-koma (comic strip) manga of the same title. There is also a game out of the same title. It is unknown whether additional episodes will be created or not.]

As of 9/14 : ANN has announced the HoiHoi-San TV Series!

lol if this isn't one of the cutest and best little oavs ever! the concept is entirely original and just too damn cute. there's no lack of cool weaponry and fighting and heh you could just squeeze the the life out of this and take it home. ten minutes is just too short.

Just to chime in from the far and distant bleachers.. WHAT A TWISTED SINGLE EPISODE THIS IS!! Hoihoi-san kind of reminds me of escargot..a small taste of something very wonderful, and then you really kind of want more.. but there is none.
Starting with a very bizarre premise of a cute but small lethal housemaid robots designed to deal with the little problem of pesticide resistant insects, most of the action occurs during the night time hours, out of sight of most ordinary people. While technology can be very amazing, one should not be surprised if it picks up a few quirks, bugs and very strange problems along the way, problems that the average user might never be aware of. But the HoiHoi-san model of pest control device seems twisted enough to deal with whatever issues or challenges that might present themselves.
Set up in very short vignettes (or sequences,) this 10 minute long episode just dives into a story line to tell of a (very) strange and twisted (night-time) world in which a certain HoiHoi-san model unit has to confront some very uncommon problems, and of her valiant efforts to fulfill her programmed duty. (Just prepare to laugh at the whimsy and absurdity of her efforts!!)

I'm not sure if this is just a one-shot to promote the game or whether it will be used to shoot off an anime series. However, at only 10-minutes thus far, there REALLY isn't enough here and some back history needs to be explored for Hoihoi-san and Combat-san. Very cute and some pretty funny moments, especially with Combat-san's conflict!

I don't know if there will be more or not, but I sure hope there is. This could be a real hit if it turns into a series.

Additional: The writers of this little episode assume the viewer has already read some of the 4-koma manga. So without spoiling anything, you should know that Hoihoi-san and Combat-san are made by two different companies. ^_^
