Curl up with Cat Planet Cuties, the Show that will have you Eating out of its Paw
9 January 2015 | by totalovrdoseSee all my reviews

A series that includes a sexy cat woman and her municipals, a clueless nerd, a ruthless assassin with a pure heart, a former secret agent, a barmy uncle with military experience, deranged cultists and villainous dog people, would in most instances never work, and despite the original episode been rather difficult to fathom, the show, outrageously enough, becomes an entertainingly enjoyable ride soon after.

When it comes to Japanese Anime, it seems many people think of Pokemon, or Ghost in the Shell, and though there are animations directed towards young and adult audiences alike, there is another variety specifically targeting fan boys and adolescents with rampaging hormones. Similar to Date A Live, Heaven's Lost Property, Sekirei and Akiba's Trip Undead and Undressed, among many others, Cat Planet Cuties is not a show destined to be loved by all.

But for those who don't mind raunchy humor, occasional nudity, flirtatious references, sexually themed conversations and women bickering over their unanimous feelings for a certain someone, then this program will undoubtedly enthuse. Although none of the episodes are capable of going a full 21 minutes without articulating a reference to women's chests, unlike other programs, this occasionally seems more tasteful than vulgar. Although women are more often than not stereotyped as gorgeous babes with massive chests, the show does note on more than one occasion how one's inner beauty is most important.

Cat Planet Cuties follows Kio, a genuine nerd with a good heart and an even better mind, however when it comes to the ladies, he is ridiculously clueless. Already, this premise sounds familiar to other Anime in the genre, but wait! All of a sudden, Eris, who is the female embodiment of every Manga loving, cos-playing geek's fantasy, pounces into his life, and decides that for the duration of her stay, his place of residence will be her home away from home. Originally from the planet Catia, Eris has cute little ears, a long slender tail, and curves in all the right places - and she's just invited many of her friends over to play. With a combination of high ranking cat women and cute kitten assist-droids, Kio is sure to have his hands full.

On a minor level, Cat Planet Cuties could be representative of female empowerment, with a cast of strong women who are as smart as they are adept at self-defense. Comparative again to other Anime, rather than the lead male chasing after the girls, it is the other way round, which leads to a series of often humorous confrontations as alien and human alike bicker over their desires for romance.

When it comes to Anime on TV, graphics always vary. In the case of Cat Planet Cuties, the resolution is certainly near the top of the spectrum, with a brilliant use of color, and beautiful animation sequences. The soundtrack especially adds to the invigorating flavor, the opening and outro themes efficaciously illustrating the romantic ideas continuously been played upon.

With a combination of super sexy women, entertaining action scenarios, sci-fi spoofs, and hilarious sequences, I only wish there were more episodes of Cat Planet Cuties, which unfortunately only ever saw one season. This aside, tonight, why not curl up with kitty and watch intergalactic space divas with pussycat ears and tails fight for peace and equilibrium on Earth!
