Junpei Kousaka is a second-year high school student who despises cats and has an allergy to them. It just so happens that his high school crush is Kaede Mizuno, a girl who adores cats. One day, while walking home from school, Junpei kicks an empty can and unfortunately beans the local neko-jizou-sama (guardian deity of cats). He finds he can now understand what cats are saying, including his family's own ill-tempered cat, Nyamusas. However, if he does not grant 100 wishes from cats, he will turn into a cat himself.

One of the problems with harem rom-coms these days is the tendency to try and be creative in unusual ways. The problem, specifically, is that the writers and mangaka assume that by simply including something like aliens, youkai, body switching, etc, etc, then the story automatically becomes new and innovative.

Fujiwara Sato, the creator of the manga upon which this anime is based, decided to adds cats. No, not catgirls, just cats (although girls are present in the story as well).

“Yo Kou-baka, I heard you’re cursed. Wahahahaha!”

If you were like me, not sure whether to try watching a show about talking cats, then rest assure because Nyan Koi is more than your average pet-talking anime! Produced by AIC, it should come as no surprise if Nyan Koi manage to remind viewers of another “semi” AIC production known as Seto no Hanayome. Both are considered rom-com harem and they share many common traits in my humble opinion. Thus it is very tempting to make comparisons between them, but I will restrain myself to the best of my ability to not do so too often in the read more

Nyan Koi! is a harem anime which tries its best to do something new, but unfortunately, it turns into just yet another bland series with the usual touch of supernatural in it.

The plot revolves around the male lead, Junpei, and his quest to help a hundred cats to avoid turning into a cat himself - due to a curse brought about by his own clumsiness. So every episode or so we get to see a new cat with some trouble, and our allergic hero trying his best to help the poor cat.

Now unfortunately it isn't as promising as this might've sound. Nyan Koi! is read more

Mmmm, I see quite a few of Nyan Koi! reviews being presented at this present moment, and to be fair, if you want to read a well written review; read Archaeon's review. My review will not be as fluffy, nor as well written.

Now let's start with Nyan Koi!'s biggest problem; it's a harem. Apart from harem fanboys, are there actually people that watch anime fairly objectively who enjoy harem anime? No, probably not. You know there's this thing about harem, mmm,..... what's it called? Generic? Ah yes, generic. This anime is no exception, it's generic, has a weak storyboard and try to save this already read more

Anime: Seto no Hanayome
The similarity between these two series exist not only in genres (comedy, romance, and parody), but also in execution.

Anime: Mayoi Neko Overrun!
Both focus on cats, beyond the typical harem where the main character is involved. 
reportRecommended by sete7
Anime: Asobi ni Iku yo!
both involve a regular guy getting pulled into a cat world
the main guy also has a childhood friend that likes them
they both have a decent amount of comedy in it
and there both harems so they have those generic episodes like the pool/beach one and the onsen/hot-tub one.

Anime: Mayo Chiki!
Has a similar feel to it. The harem theme is the same. Also the main character both have unusual disease(?) The guy is allergic to cats like how jirou is allergic to girls(?). They both have love/comedy too.

Anime: Love Hina
