4.0 out of 5 stars Funny show, but not how you'd think Dec 12 2010
By Evan R. Cassity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
When reading a synopsis for the series, one is struck by the weirdness of the concept. Junpei, the main character, is allergic to cats. By accident, he breaks the local cat-deity statue at a shrine, cursing him. Suddenly, he can understand what cats are saying, and must do 100 nice things for cats or he will turn into one himself. Being allergic, turning into a cat would kill him.

But that isn't really what the show is about. It is a slice of life anime heavy on the romantic comedy, following Junpei in his quest to become closer to his crush, Mizuno. As in most anime of this genre, complications are abound and more than one girl besides Mizuno falls for Junpei, setting up some very amusing situations. Sure, the concept has been done to death (besides the cats) and these types of anime are a dime a dozen. But that doesn't stop this show from being very, very funny.

The characters are really alive. There are some seriously good one-liners in this series, and the dialogue is just comedy gold in general most of the time. I was intrigued by the feline concept of the show, but was surprised to notice that, when his curse became a subplot throughout the series, I didn't mind. The characters really make this show shine.

The animation is fluid and very well done. This DVD set will ship without a dub, so be prepared to read subtitles if that is something that matters to you. Personally, I prefer watching anime in the original language, so a subtitled set is perfect. If you like comedy, slice of life, love triangles, and a little feline mischief, this is a series you don't want to miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable harem anime series with a twist! Dec 14 2010
By Dennis A. Amith (kndy) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In 2007, the manga "Nyan Koi!" by Sato Fujiwara was serialized in the free web comic "FlexComix Blood" and two years later, the manga receives its anime adaptation from AIC and makes its DVD debut in the US courtesy of Sentai Filmworks.

The series is directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Kowarekake no Orgel", "Sket Dance", "Hayate the Combat Butler"), screenplay by Shinichi Inotsume ("Kowarekake no Orgel", "Hayate the Combat Butler", "Sket Dance") and features music by Manabu Miwa and Shigenobu Ookawa. Character designs are by Kazuaki Morita ("My Bride is a Mermaid", "Tentai Senshi Sunred") and art direction by Naoko Kosakabe ("NieA 7', "Kissxsis", "Jinki: Extend").

"Nyan Koi!" is a series about a high school sophomore named Junpei Kosaka and he is allergic to cats. So, much that he hates them and one day, he thinks he hears his cat Nyamsus talking to him but dismisses it.

As for Junpei, he is always dreaming about his friend Kaede Mizuno and wishes he can get closer to her. One day, while he was walking home from school, Junpei kicks a can and it hits a neko-jizo-sama statue (a cat statue that serves as a guardian deity of cats). Having broken the cat statue, now Junpei is forced to grant 100 wishes to cats and if he doesn't do it, he will turn into a cat which will eventually kill him because of his allergy towards cats.

And to remind him and watch over him is his family cat Nyamsus who tries to make sure Junpei know of his curse.

So, Junpei will do all he can to help cats, even though he dislikes them. But along the way, each time he helps the cats, he encounters other girls who start to take a liking towards him (and in the process, making other girls jealous) because of the attention he is starting to receive.

"Nyan Koi!" is 12-episodes long and is presented on two DVD's. Here is a basic synopsis of each episode:

DISC 1:

* EPISODE 1 - The Scruffy Cat and the Cursed High Schooler - Junpei is a high schooler who is allergic to cats. So, allergic that he hates them. But after he breaks a cat statue, now he is cursed and if he doesn't want to turn into a cat and die from his allergies, he must perform 100 favors for cats.
* EPISODE 2 - That Man is a Manservant? - Junpei must help a cat which leads him to his childhood friend and now a girl that despises him, Kanako Sumiyoshi.
* EPISODE 3 - Your Name Is... - A college student/postal carrier named Chizuru Mochizuki is bad with directions and a cat leads Junpei to help her out.
* EPISODE 4 - Beautiful People - A cat owned by tomboy Nagi Ichinose leads Junpei to her. But Nagi despises Junpei because of his friendship with Kaede.
* EPISODE 5 - Times Square - Junpei goes to the amusement park with Kaede, Kanako and Nagase but will Junpei be able to get close to Kaede with the other two girls around? Meanwhile, Kaede may have found out the truth about Junpei's curse.
* EPISODE 6 - Milk and Bitters and Sugar and Spice - Kaede meets two twins Akari and Kotone Kirishima who know about his curse. Meanwhile, Kotone is infatuated with Junpei, while her sister is overprotective of her.

DISC 2:

* EPISODE 7 - Wait Until Dark - Junpei is getting prepared to go on a school trips to Kyoto with his classmates. Also, Ichinose's family in Kyoto will be having a meeting to decide who will be Nagase's husband.
* EPISODE 8 - The Passionate Private Running Coach - Junpei goes to help the next cat in need, but when he forgets to help the cat...the cat wants revenge on Junpei.
* EPISODE 9 - Girls in the Water - The group goes out to swim but Junpei is sick and Kanako wants to take care of him.
* EPISODE 10 - As it happened One Night - The Kirishima twins are counting on Junpei to help them deal with a spirit.
* EPISODE 11 - Friends - It's almost Christmas time and Junpei and Kanako spend time together.
* EPISODE 12 - Does Heaven Await Me? - Kaede is suspicious of Junpei and Junpei must find a way to convince her that nothing bad is going on or else the curse will consume him.

VIDEO :

"Nyan Koi! - Complete Collection" is presented in 16:9 anamorphic widescreen. The animation tends to change from very cutesy style of anime that will appeal to the fans who love cute characters, especially for the cats and then shifting to normal anime style. Character designs are well-done, especially the closeups. The background art tends to differ depending on the scene with some look quite simple to others looking a bit more detailed. I did notice more background art being used in the second half of the series and for the most part, I really enjoyed the character designs for this anime series. For the most part, the animation and art backgrounds for "Nyan Koi!" are very good.

The colors for "Nyan Koi!" are quite vibrant and for the most part, animation is up-to-par with other TV anime related series. It is important to note that because the series was released on Blu-ray in Japan, I wouldn't be surprised if Sentai Filmworks/Section23 Films releases "Nyan Koi!" in HD.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"Nyan Koi!" is presented in Japanese 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo. Voice acting is well done for this series. I felt that Shintaro Asanuma did a great job with the voice of Junpei, very cool, deep voice. Meanwhile, the voice actress such as Yuka Iguchi as Kaede, Ryoo shiraishi as Kanako and Haruka Tomatsu as the twins, all did a fantastic job.

Subtitles are in English.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

"Nyan Koi!" comes with the clean opening and ending themes plus trailers from anime currently available from Sentai Filmworks.

JUDGMENT CALL:

"Nyan Koi!" is quite an interesting harem anime series. Despite the usual storyline of all females starting to like a certain guy, Junpei is an interesting character as his interest is primarily on Kaede and the only reason he was nice to the other girls was because of their cats and his obligation to grant 100 wishes for the cats or else he will turn into one and die from his allergy. It's a bit twisted in a way but "Nyan Koi!" is a pretty fun anime series.

Each episode is connected to each other, so there is no worry of filler episodes. Each episodes tend to focus on Junpei fulfilling the 100 wishes but at the same time, these episodes also build upon him trying to get close to Kaede but yet the others also wanting to get closer to Junpei and we get to see him starting to care for the others but yet the writers finding ways to tease you in regards to Junpei and Kaede's friendship and how close they will get.

But each of the characters are quite fun to watch and it does make me wonder how much crazier the actual manga gets and how many more girls are introduced to this whole harem mix. But because this series alone focuses on not too many characters, each episode does feature plots that further the character development, relationships and jealousies that exist. But it all comes together quite nicely.

As mentioned earlier, this is an anime series that tends to go from serious to a cutesy style but by no means is this an anime series for young children. Yes, it does have many cute moments but it's also important to note that while the series doesn't feature any nudity, there is some perverted humor as characters such as Kanako Sumiyoshi (who has big breasts) tends to jiggle wherever she goes and Nagi Ichinose has this thing about grabbing on Kanako's breast. Also, a few pantie shots that show up form time to time. So, there is some perverted humor in this series but nothing that tends to overshadow the whole storyline.

As for the DVD, you do get 12 episodes and the vibrant animation is quite pleasing. The only downer is the lack of special features but unfortunately, with TV series, it's becoming more of a common place to not see much special features on anime on DVD these days, "Nyan Koi!" is no different. As for those who are video or audiophiles, there is a Blu-ray release in Japan, so it will be interesting to see if Sentai Filmworks will bring out a Blu-ray release to the US. But it's a series that would definitely look much better on Blu-ray, although audio-wise, the series will probably be more ambiance-base since its a dialogue driven series.

But overall, "Nyan Koi!" is an entertaining anime series. I enjoyed it so much that I watched it all in one setting. There is a good amount of comedy, drama and fan-service and I have no doubt that this series will go over well with anime fans. If you love "harem anime", definitely give "Nyan Koi!" a try!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good show, but bad box art Jan. 17 2011
By M. Wilmsmeyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't let the box art confuse you, this isn't an ecchi show. It's the poor man's Seto no Hanayome, which is to say that there's a lot of goofing around, a plot that provides a cheap excuse for said goofing around, and a quick resolution at the very end for an easy, open ending (sequel please!). The show is NOT dual-audio, which is good - there are a lot of things referenced, like ganguro and yakuza, that simply don't translate well. If there's any complaint, again, it's the box art - I have to hide this behind the other DVDs simply because it looks like cheap anime hentai or something.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Adorable Harem Series March 4 2013
By GintaxAlvissforever - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This anime came out around the same time as Kampfer. Compared to the crap Kampfer dished out, Nyan Koi while a simple storyline was very endearing.

The plot does stand out though. The main character Junpei Kousaka is allergic to cats and therefore avoids them when can. One day, he accidentally he breaks an artifact angering the Guardian of Deity of Cats. Now he has the ability to hear and speak to cats and this is because he's been cursed. He has to fulfill 100 favors for cats or he'll turn into one himself. An ironic end for someone who hates cats.

The irony is the plot given isn't actually the main focus of the series. While Kousaka is shown doing things on screen relating to the curse, the focus is about his relationship with his crush Kaede and the other girls. The characters in this series as a whole develop as a person despite there only being 12 episodes (where's my season 2?!)

Most people tend to hate the main guy with the main girl and I would have hated Kaede. But Kaede is so adorable for the female lead. She's kind, helpful and shown to be bad with animals (as cats are scared of her kind nature). I find her kindness toward her rivals as genuine and alas, the other girls find it hard to hate Kaede especially Kanako. The unlucky childhood friend (who is a tsundere) is very understanding for a tsundere. Most tsundere characters are just jerks to the main guy for no reason whatsoever (and while I prefer them over yandere girls, this obnoxious attitude can go too far). Kanako and Kaede are best friends and I find it adorable how Kanako is willing to let Kaede win since she values her friendship with Kaede (but she does continue to struggle with her feelings for Kousaka). And while Kanako does beat up Kousaka, its not extreme as some other anime where the girl breaks the guys bones. The other girls in the harem are rather interesting as well. Nagi, the masculine lesbian (I'm calling it) is obviously in love with Kaede but claims she's just attracted to her beauty...uh...yeah. -_- but she's fluxuating between bisexuality between supporting Kousaka and Kaede's relationship to helping herself out and hitting on them both, but she's actually hilarious and cute at the same time. Finally you got the twins Akari and Kotone...the tsundere and yandere. Now I would hate Kotone, but she's so cute (I'm using this word too much). Her yandere is toned down though compared to others. The worse she does is get Kousaka's number and text him multiple times saying stuff on how he cannot go beyond holding hands but then says that she's fine with him dating her. Her twin sister Akari is also a toned down version of a tsundere (less than Kanako) and while she does hit him multiple times for no reason, again it's not too serious (plus I would like to think the twins are aware that they're in a harem and say a lot of things that the usual stereotype wouldn't say as a result). I would add the mail lady Chiziru as another option but she's not really a love interest as the cool big sis to Kousaka.

Kousaka himself actually is surprisingly likable protagonist (unlike Natsuru who is retarded and Makoto who is such an a-hole.) He generally is a nice guy and not a pervert. Most of the situations he's thrown in is because of bad luck and he has shown to won the girl's over by being kind toward them with the main example being Nagi who was very antagonistic toward him (and he was mean to her back because he thought she was a guy). Despite his hate for cats, he generally seems to start to appreciate them as the series goes on and everyone sees him as a cat lover. Also, his two male friends are hilarious (and one of them is so fabulous~)

Which reminds me, I can't remember the episode, but I feel like it was the best one where Kousaka is accused of being a pervert like the majority of harem animes have but unlike other animes, when he's shown to be innocent, everyone actually apologized for their behavior. What anime does that? This anime is a slice of life but it was very heartwarming to see that the two guy friends that are usually jealous of the main guy getting all the ladies (one of them isn't because he's so gay), the local tsundere and the violent bifauxnen apologize for the misunderstanding (they try to side step it but they knew were in the wrong).

Overall, it's a very cute series. I can't give it a perfect because it's very generic anime series. It's not the best harem series out there but its definitely not the worse. I put it very high on my harem scale (Negima manga is the one on the highest along with Shuffle) and to watch it if you have the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars NYAN KOI !!! July 25 2013
By alex willmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Nyan koi is about a series when a guy gets cursed by a cat statue and tries to get this girl he likes to like him. The series is very short (12 episodes) but its a very great series. Its more of a romance + Comedy than anything else. The anime actually can be funny at times but can get pretty annoying on certain parts. This anime is actually one of my top 10 favorites.

A thing I'd like to say about the package, why is this a complete series when there is only one episode? Yes a season 2 was confirmed at the end of season 1 but how ever they never got to release it because they couldn't get the Licensing for it.

But you really should add this anime to your collection, its a great series if you like Romance + comedy/ect.
