A true Christmas gem. With only a short run time of 30 minutes, i recommend Orurorane the Cat Player to anyone who is looking for something cozy and heart warming. Orurorane the Cat Player might have a bit weaker animation than other anime from around its time, but I felt that the emotions and groovy happiness it portrays is still successful.

I felt this required a review as some might give this anime a pass based off its low watch rate and score. However you should definitely give this a chance if you are looking for a mid 90's feel good Christmas music comedy!

Mixed Feelings
A slightly androgynous young man, down on his luck after being fired from the orchestra, receives some singing cats from a wizard and teaches them to perform a concert.

That's the PLOT, but the actual purpose of this story is to give a short and sweet slice of life in the chilly winter of a small city. Nobody's that well off, the weather isn't great, and the protagonist never really improves his situation from being poor and jobless. Generally, though, the mood is happy, and the story focuses on the quiet, pretty moments that punctuate the hardships of a young adult life.

It's a bit too short ...
