Takumi Tsuzuki is a high school student who attends the Umenomori Private Academy, free of charge, alongside Fumino Serizawa, a childhood friend of his whom always says the opposite of what she feels. He spends most of his time at school fending off Chise Umenomori, the granddaughter of the board chairman and a pampered princess, who is constantly roping him into her eccentric hobbies. After school, he goes to work at the "Stray Cats" confectionery, a cake shop run by his adoptive older sister, Otome Tsuzuki, until it's time to go to bed. This is the average routine in the day and the life of Takumi.

Mayoi Neko Overrun follows another seemingly average day in the life of Takumi. With his sister away from the shop, having gone to save someone else in need of help, Fumino takes it upon herself to wake him up so that he won't be late for their usual walk to school together, giving him a glimpse of her blue and white striped panties in the process. What a nice way to start the day.

When Otome returns home, she brings with her a girl named Nozomi Kiriya, whose hair and mannerisms resemble that of a large cat. It turns out that she is a runaway that Otome can't help but take in. Takumi's ordinary days are transformed into splendid chaos as he tries to unravel who this mysterious beauty is and what she's running away from...

I have very mixed feelings about Mayoi Neko Overrun. It's quite something to say that a series is both generic yet still one of the more... unique harems to come out in a while. This all stems from the fact that the scriptwriter, director and key artist changed every single episode for the twelve week duration of the series. The result is that studio AIC squanders what little potential the series already had and gives the directors free reign to do one-shot episode experiments. What would have been a mostly cliche but still above average harem turns into possibly "the" trainwreck of the year.

In short this show is a disaster. Well, the first three episodes were sweet and I actually enjoyed them. At that time Mayoi Neko Overrun! seemed like a typical harem with a good character development. I was even thinking that Overrun is worthy of eight points, no kidding. But then the randomness came.

Y’know, randomness is not really equal to bad quality. Take a look at Galaxy Angel — that show is so damn random but it’s hilarious. It has good humorous episodes and equally good dramatic episodes in stock. But sadly I’m not here to speak about Galaxy Angel, I have Overrun to review. Thus read more

It's not a great story, you will not have a complex story on this one so if you care about story on a comedy anime then this is not for you. The story revolves on a mysterious girl that acts like a cat or it might really be a catgirl they don't really explain why she is like that and she meets this guy Takumi who was an orphan and convince her to live with him and her ''sister'' who adopted him and basically is about their daily life and comedy.

Mayoi Neko Overrun- Just like a Benz car, great at first, and then 2 months in it's the biggest mistake you've ever made.

Just like anyone else, I read the reviews for this anime and of course everyone says it's horrible. But of course, just like everyone, I couldn't resist the great introduction, and the cute pictures and characters so I watched it.

Actually at first I it was pretty good, the story with the main character being an orphan etc. etc. and at that moment I was like WTF if everyone talking about? this anime is great! great art and story!
