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.

Wow, I can’t believe that the anime of the decade has come out so soon!!!

I never thought in my wildest dreams that frickin Nekopara of all things, a bare bones visual novel featuring sex scenes with incredibly well animated cat girls named after foods, would ever get an anime. But thanks to the wallets of an agglomeration of weebs of culture who were somehow able to raise over 1 million dollars for this anime’s creation, Nekopara the anime was conceived. And that my friends is why this is the anime of the decade, because it represents the dedication and perseverance of countless anime and visual read more

Winter 2020 has been a pretty dismal season for anime overall. Eizouken will of course run away with anime of the season because it had exactly ZERO competition that could stop it. It doesn’t matter how boring, self-indulgent, or repetitive it is. Yuasa directed it and Eizouken has a budget, so compared to the rest of the Spring 2020 lineup it’s like watching Canelo Alvarez fight a bunch of children. My personal anime of the season is Interspecies Reviewers, but I can’t review that for a few more days. Instead, let’s look at a series that apparently met Funimation’s high moral standards. This is the read more

Music and art both are top notch. That's why we had our hopes high. But with every new episode it became more and more clear — Nekopara is hot garbage.

Each catgirl gets one comic gag assigned in the beginning of the season, and then writers exploit it repeatedly in almost every episode. Including bringing character up just for a few seconds to show yet another version of the same joke they made in ep1.

While each episode has an interesting idea — Cinnamon exploring her breeding desires or Cacao looking for new owners, every single one of them fails both to develop said characters read more

A question: I'm pretty sure it's established somewhere in the VNs that they're genetically engineered 'cat girls', so why call them 'cats'?  Are there actual cats in this world aside from catgirls, or are all cats catgirls now?  Yes, I seriously thought about this hypothetical question while watching the show.


Within the Minazuki household lives six different catgirls.  When the older of the two siblings leaves to start his own patisserie business, the two youngest cats follow their master and appear in boxes as he's moving in while the other four cats and his little sister stay behind in their family home, occasionally coming by to read more
