The siblings Kashou and Shigure Minazuki enjoy the company of six catgirls. Chocola and Vanilla assist Kashou in his job as a baker at the patisserie La Soleil, while the others—Coconut, Azuki, Cinnamon, and Maple—accompany Shigure in her daily life back at their home.

One afternoon, when Chocola goes out for an errand, she notices a green-haired kitten alone by herself at a park and decides to bring her back to the patisserie. Soon after, the Minazuki household adopts her and gives her a name: Cacao. With a new member in their family, the members of the Minazuki household continue their everyday lives—bound to become livelier than ever.

Nekopara is a visual novel franchise with some animated content such as this 12 episodes anime we have here. The animation is great, the art style is as cute as it originally is in the VN's, the humour is amazing, as well as the voice acting being great in both, English dub and Japanese dub.
Despite it having great and amazing things in it, there are some things that ruin it a little bit. The original source, the VN franchise is NSFW while this anime adaptation isn't which makes most of the younger audience that have watched this anime adaptation confused about it being just ...

Mixed Feelings
Nekopara is just plain boring. That's all there really is to it. It doesn't have much of a "plot," because that isn't what its going for, but the individual episodes don't have enough substance in them to really warrant watching them. I probably would have rated this show a 6 if it weren't for the fact that I was completely bored of it by episode 4. Only reason I really finished it was because me and some friends watched it (and the movie and OVA) as a joke. A boring, 4 hour long joke. The humor in this show is pretty bland, mostly just boiling ...

Recommendation: Skip it unless you really like catgirls.


+ Delivers exactly what it advertises. Each episode is 20 minutes of catgirls being cute and absolutely nothing else. And let's be honest, that's the reason you're going to watch this. So even though it's not a "good" show, you'll probably like it if you know exactly what to expect from it.

+ Can be funny when it leans into the idea of them literally being cats, like Vanilla kneading on Chocola's stomach to wake her up, or them being unable to resist the urge to sit in a random box that's been left out.
