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
The trio sure is daring running a café right in front of the police station with the name of the criminal group… Wearing masks or disguises is also not necessary if you are as good as them… And on top dating the detective in charge of the investigation… Hilarious. Shows like this one must be a nightmare for the Japanese police!
Knowing that this show is from 1983 it looks very good and the animation is all right.
