Synopsis

When Takeru Amato moved into his new apartment in Akihabara, he was warned that there was one problem with it. He wasn’t warned, however, that the problem was a hole in the floor that leads to the realm of the zodiac gods. He also wasn’t told about Nyaa-tan, the eccentric, immature, prospective zodiac-sign cat.

Nyaa-tan would like nothing more than to join the rest of the girls, otherwise known as Eto-shin, in the Chineze zodiac, but she’s going to have to fight to work her way in. Fortunately, establishing a relationship with Takeru can help her with that. In Etotama the members of the zodiac don’t just represent people’s births; they draw their power from positive human emotions in the form of energy called Sol/Lull. With this power, the Eto-musume, or potential Eto-shin, can change from their mostly humanoid appearances into smaller “pretty modes” that can battle with each other in the Eto world.

Nyaa-tan needs to get Takeru to warm up to him fast, and not just because they’re living together. The ETM12 selection festival to determine the next member of the zodiac is coming soon. With Takeru’s good graces, Nyaa-tan just might be able to fight off the other Eto-musume and the 12 Eto-shin themselves, and finally take her place in the zodiac.

Etotama is fun, then its gets cool and it left me speechless of how good it is.

The only reason i'm placing such a high rating on what looks like some
shallow fanservice like anime is that... for me - its not like that at all.

Most people complicate things on how anime must have "this or that" level of animation, sound, blah blah blah for it to be good.

My only basis is solely
"did this anime teach me something important and did it well?"

For me, Etotama delivered - it taught me how to have fun.

Story wise, its simple and easy to comprehend,
I actually appreciate how the read more

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig. The Chinese Zodiac is a figure that has long since been used to identify one's characteristics and personalities, since there's a saying that people are like a certain way on account of their perspective zodiac animal. So, with an anime about this particular zodiac that is NOT Fruits Baskets, what are we to expect with Etotama?

Story (6.34/10): Etotama's story is based around the life of one particular individual named Amato Takeru, a high school student who moves into a rather large house by himself in Akiba. There, he notices a read more

Just over 3 months ago when I was searching for new titles to watch, I chanced upon this one and went like "What in the world is this?" 12 weeks on, I am a pretty satisfied viewer of this relatively unique series, because I'm quite confident that we will never see anything like it again.

[STORY: 9/10]

Without much hesitation, I'm easily giving this a high score. The very instant I knew it was about members of the Chinese Zodiac battling out with one another in cute chibi forms, the decision was made. Because I am absolutely fascinated with this idea. Coming from a Chinese background, read more

Since when is the last time you watched an anime that is so much wacky and nuts that you pretty much gave up your soul to Satan? Well, if you have not seen this anime yet, you are going to miss the experience of getting sucked into Satan’s chamber. At the same time, no spoilers in this review.

So, Etotama popped up this season. I did not know what to expect when I first heard about it, since I came to put in on my watchlist because of the voice actresses involved. But upon watching the first episode, I just find out how insane it is. read more
