Taruto is a little cat who has just moved to a new city with her master's family. Taruto spends her days making friends and exploring her new home town. She also has a knack for getting herself into trouble. And it turns out that Taruto just might be a legendary magical princess. Almost none of Taruto’s friends believe that she can use magic or that she’s a princess, but Taruto is determined to prove it to them. But Taruto's magic is so unpredictable, you never know what's going to happen when she uses it.

This is definitely a show intended for kids, but I enjoyed it immensely. I got somewhat hypnotized by the unending cutesiness, and for some time after viewing an episode I would use cutesy words. The power of cute compelled me.

Taruto is a cat. However, she regards herself as the equal of any human, and so the viewer sees her as a cat-girl. This can be a little disorienting for the first episode, until one realizes that the humans without cat ears are actual humans, and the people with cat-ears are cats who think of themselves as human.

Taruto is very young and kittenish. She ...

Magical Meow Meow Taruto is an anime that, while clearly being aimed at a younger audience, still keeps a consistent storyline and has its dark moments.

Starting off quite innocently and without much substance, it soon evolves into a slice of life with a few fantasy and even action themes.

Mixed Feelings
Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto is a cute show. Cute is its raison d'être, and viewers should be warned to expect a kid's show with no real tension or storytelling merit. It is classic stuff- a secret princess, magic, and animals that can understand each other but not be understood by humans.

However, I've ended up watching it three times through by now. It's entertaining and cute fluff. As an entire genre has built up around adults watching cuteness for its own sake in the anime industry since Taruto was introduced, it may be worth considering for viewing by adults as well as children.
