This anime is about the everyday life of a cat god who was kicked out of heaven because she is a lazy bum good for nothing. Her parents asked her to go down to Earth and stay there. She now lives with a human girl who runs an antique shop. The anime is mostly about the cat god and her fellow gods spending time together and getting into some trouble along the way.
People would’ve probably just passed through this anime and didn’t give it a second look. I kind of understand because this anime is a bit dull and plain. An anime released in 2011
shouldn’t be dull and plain yet this anime remarkably is. There is nothing in this anime that you haven’t seen before and almost all of its elements worked against it.
The one big problem about this anime is that the first episode introduced all the characters and it already had an already established status quo. The cat god, Mayu, was kicked out of her house in heaven but the next scene we see is her in a house with a girl. So there was a time leap and the anime kind of just told us that the events in between wasn’t important but it actually is. Out come a bunch of characters who casually speaks to one another as if they’ve been introduced already but they weren’t. The anime immediately told viewers that this is what we have: a bunch of characters talking to one another. It’s now the viewer’s job to catch up with the anime. Most first episodes start out strong with an exciting premise but this anime opened with a yawner that will hardly interest you. The one thing that made me want to watch about this anime though is the way the characters interact with each other. I’m not saying it’s great but there is some pretty impressive blending here. Also, I don’t judge on first impressions. “This anime will get better” is what I said to myself.
This anime will only start to get good though after the third episode. Like I said, the character interaction is it’s only saving grace. The story is non-episodic and they come off as a bit predictable. Why watch an anime if you already know how it will end? This anime is of the Comedy genre and it’s flat. It most certainly won’t make you laugh. Believe me, I tried and forced to laugh but it won’t. It’s just too simple to even try and make you laugh. Even the characters are a bit flat because they didn’t have a proper introduction. There are a lot of negative aspects in this anime that it overwhelms its good parts. This anime is just meant to be watched for simple fun and nothing else. Oh, don’t marathon it as well. It won’t do you any good and you’re just punishing yourself.
The episodes have some basic set up to them and they are mostly divided into three types. The first type is episodes about a random god and some trouble it causes on the characters. Just like the first episode, the characters are scrambling to chase off the god of poverty that wandered into their town. The second type is the simple kind of episodes where the characters just hang out and do random things together. There are episodes like telling ghost stories or helping a mangaka with her work. I like these episodes because the characters play off each other and their individual charm gets to shine for a while. The third type of episode is about Mayu and her relationship with Yuzu, the human girl who owns the house she lives in. These episodes are particularly deep because they explore some dramatic moments of their relationship like the incidents after Yuzu’s parents die and the events on how they first met. This is the special part of the anime but you first must not over think the anime and just have fun while watching.
The character design is simple. I actually like this kind of design because the simplicity makes the characters more pleasing to look at. If you look closely too, some of the characters have some big boobs on them. I love how some fan service is able to make its way on the character design. It has some “moe” on some of the characters as well. They were cute and they were paired with some cute voices. The outfits are pretty nice as well. There is a large range of outfits in the anime from simple shrine maiden clothes to some frilly dresses.
6/10 “It’s a pretty nice anime if you want to just sit back and relax and just enjoy some silly random fun.”
The anime is OK. That’s it. I’ve said all I can say about this anime and it’s up to you if you will like it or not. There are some nice things here. In the overall look of things though, this anime is sadly forgettable.
If you are searching for chibi art and a fan of cute animals such as nekos (cats) or kitsunes (fox), you might enjoy this. ^_^
Artwork: Colourful + Simple -> Designed to ease viewers in, as the design is to reel you into the aspects of childish fun & games.
Story: A very spoiled neko -_- , and must be punished -> outcome? You decided: "Stay spoiled" || "becomes Obedient" :T + random storylines that gives you a chuckle or two to remember.
Sound: Additional sounds such as passive natural background noises included should be a supplement to this anime. As of now, the sounds are
aligned so it does give the anime the push it needs to go to.
Enjoyment/Character: Roles are entitled to them: Different reactions are shown based on their personality & moral, all tied down to the aspects of respecting their "role" they have to play as. Plus random characters are introduced very smoothly to bring you the "More the Merrier" embracement feeling.
Overall: This is a comedy, get a couple of laughs out :Dc
