The three Kisugi sisters—Rui, Hitomi and Ai—during the day run a small cafe called "Cat's Eye." To discover the whereabouts of their father, the artist Michael Heintz, who has disappeared, Hitomi and her sisters rob art galleries as the smart and mysterious thief "Cat's Eye" in the hope that his works can give them clues about his vanishing. The crucial point is that Hitomi has a relationship with Toshi, a police inspector who has sworn to catch "Cat's Eye"—and of course he has no idea about Hitomi's double life.

Can’t get tired of phantom thief stories à la Lupin III or Kaito Kid? Cat’s Eye has 3 good looking sisters pursuing this infamous profession to find their missing father.

73 mostly independent episodes – Sometimes a bit repetitive but always with some nice action, comedy and eye candy especially for the male audience. The overall plot, the reason why the three Kisugi sisters are stealing art and jewels gets somehow overshadowed most of the time by the frequent burglaries and the hide and seek with the police. But for me this wasn’t that much of a problem. I still enjoyed these easy going funny read more

I wish there was more.

The story line to Cat's Eye is a pretty simple premise. You'd think it would get old quick, but honestly, the premise doesn't wear thin until you get very late into the show. The thing about Cat's Eye is that it's only linked by one element and unfortunately, I don't remember that element ever being dully resolved. It ends as if there were more to come, but still manages to feel like a proper wrap up. In other words, there aren't any huge plot lines left open, just that there isn't a full resolution. Nonetheless, the shenanigans and near misses that read more

I rarely write anime reviews, but this one is so long that I had to compile my feelings on it. Not only is it one of the longer ones I've watched, it's also the oldest one I've watched. It's also one of the most realistic, meaning I was stepping outside of my comfort zone to watch it. The realism is what might make Cat's Eye seem boring at first, but a lot is done with the realism to set up tense environments. The three main characters, collectively known as Cat's Eye, are criminals, but they're definitely the nicest criminals compared to any of the others read more
