Storyline

The 3 Kisugi sisters, Rui, Hitomi and Ai run the Cat's Eye Cafe. They are the daughters of Michael Heinz, a painter who mysteriously disappeared in the seventies. In order to find out what happened to him, they steal each item of their father's collection from their new various owners. They send out cards labeled "Cat's Eye" to the police warning them every time they plan a theft, but still manage to escape. Inspector Toshio Utsumi, in charge of the Cat's Eye case, happens to be Hitomi's boyfriend which proves very helpful for the girls, but creates obvious problems for Hitomi's conscience.

A retro classic filled with action, comedy and romance
4 May 2016 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

Here is a retro classic in anime I automatically love after sneaking a peek at an episode on YouTube. The series is about three sisters: Rui, Hitomi and Ai Kisugi, who are coffee shop owners by day. But slick art thieves known as "Cat's Eye" by night.

Now I know for a fact that they never wanted a night-life of crime, but it was the only way to piece together their papa's art collection to find out where he had disappeared all those years ago. But for middle-sister Hitomi, it was really hard for her because her boyfriend Toshio Utsumi is a police detective out to catch the infamous "Cat's Eye." Out of the three sisters, I love Hitomi and Ai; Ai's such a darling. Anyway, I really love this anime with its superb animation and a story filled with action, comedy and romance; I really ship Hitomi & Toshi.
