Ryuunosuke Natsume is the son of genius inventor Kyusaku Natsume and overbearing Akiko Natsume, CEO of Mishima Heavy Industries. Using funds from his wife's company and the brain from his son's beloved cat, Kyusaku creates a revolutionary android called Atsuko "Nuku Nuku" Natsume. To Kyusaku's disgust, Akiko wants to use her husband's technology to create weaponized robots for her company's customers, resulting in Ryuunosuke getting caught within the explosive fights between his parents

The android Nuku Nuku tries to live as a normal high school student, adopting the role of Ryuunosuke's elder sister, but usually ends up acting as her family's protector. Nuku Nuku will do anything to protect the ones she loves.

Don't take it too seriously. It's just there. Here is the lowdown: The father and mother are divorced. The mother is the president of a business conglomerate that builds weapons for the military. The father has custody of the son. To alleviate his loneliness, the father makes his son a companion: a battle android with a cat's brain. Why? Because anime.

The episodes follow the catgirl, Nuku Nuku, and her shenanigans with the father, son, ...

A classic favorite. Good comedy and action sequences, and of course the joy of seeing Nuku Nuku battling in swimsuits, volleyball shorts, maid dresses, and other revealing outfits.

The story begins with a father and his son running away from a hovercraft Young Ryunosuke finds a kitten in ...
