In Videos: Japanese Anime 'Moyashimon Microbe Theater'
Moyashimon is a Japanese anime series about Tadayasu Sawaki, a first-year college student at an agricultural university who is blessed (or cursed) with the gift of being able to communicate with microbes. Naturally, these microbes are small, cuddly, bouncy, fat creatures with emotive faces and squeaky childlike voices.
At the end of every episode the microbes star in their own "Microbe Theater" segment. After the jump, check out Episode 5, which features the microbes that ferment alcohol. [Thanks to Gordon Mark for the heads up!]

Also, check out the opening credits to the series that mixes real life scenes with animated microbes . This is what the world would look like if you had Tadayasu's power—cute and potentially insanity-inducing, due to always being surrounded by microbes.
