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.

I was not going to see this anime at all, but i heard a lot, that Nyan Koi! was really funny, so i wanted to see if that was true, to my surprise it was really funny but the story and characters needed more development to be better.

The story is not bad, is just good, because this hooks you up to keep watching to see what will happen to Junpei, if he converts to a cat or he breaks the curse and because of this curse, a lot of funny moments are triggered, so for that, this was good.

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).

Nyan Koi follows the life of one Kousaka Junpei, a high schooler who lives with his mother, sister, and pet cat, but who suffers from read more

“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

I actually enjoyed and loved this anime!! I've watched it like 4 times or so. One of my favourites! (I'm canadian so it is "OU" >.> ) This anime revolves mainly around cats & comedy :D

It's suppose to have romance, and it does but it doesn't overpower the anime with JUST ROMANCE so don't get confused and be like "ughh another anime with a random guy and all the girls want him" because IT IS and it turned out pretty cool! Asides from other animes (shounen or harem whatever) this one comes up with reasons .___. not 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
Some female characters from Nyan Koi are similar of the female characters of Love hina. Both are harem, are comedy and some ecchi parts
