Plot Summary


The "Nyanbo" are creatures with square bodies with ears and tails that came to Earth from outer space. There's Tora, who dreams of repairing their broken UFO and returning to space, as well as his sister Kotora, the precocious Shiro, the mischievous Mike, the mysterious Kuro, and many more. All of these Nyanbos are now happily living much like cats, free-spirited and sometimes getting into trouble, in places that humans don't know about.

Episode 1

Fresh off of finishing Bananya, I now get my kitty fix in a different form as instead of cats in bananas, I get cats made out of boxes. They came from outer space and got stranded on Earth. And while they are catlike beings, they are having a hard time getting along with the real cats. Pretty cute and amusing start to this.

This was nicely done.

I like it more than Bananya.

I'll keep watching.

Episode 2

And they meet two more Nyanbos. Saba and Kiji sure love their music and sprakly things. While the machine accepted the marble, it merely triggered a light show and not made their grounded spaceship go. That was pretty amusing to see those cats playing around like that again.

Episode 3

Nice work, Mike. That was pretty cute seeing him bringing an actual cat into the attic when he went after that food. But while they are still dreaming of going back home, as long as they are together everything is fine. I just love seeing these Nyanbos interacting with the cat as they get along in a way.

It's pleasant enough with sufficient charmingly amusing moments that I just moved it to the "plan to keep watching" section of my queue.

I liked the "spin and fly" bit in episode 3. Pretty cute. But I'd be annoyed at everything getting knocked all over the place as a result.

Episode 4

Shiro is going all out to be acknowledged by Tora as being cute, but it fails in a big way. Can't force cuteness as Kotora's came naturally and without dressing up and baking that dessert. Shiro is already cute as is, so there's not exactly a need to do all that.

Episode 5

This episode focuses on Tora and Kotora, the tabby Nyanbo siblings. Kotora's curiosity is just more than what Tora could handle, and it's pretty cute to see those two with their antics. And of course, that scene where they see those cats is really cute. This show continues to make good use of augmented reality.

Episode 6

Here comes some new Nyanbos in the form of a street gang known as Wild Black. Having spotted Kuro, Blaze has fallen for that cat. There's just one problem in that Kuro is a boy, so he can't exactly fall in love with him. But nevertheless, he still wants to get along, and the shock of the reveal has led him to collapsing. Poor Blaze had his heart crushed just like that.

Episode 7

Poor Blaze just doesn't know how to fit in with the Nyanbos. Tora is hoping to activate another gadget hoping that it would mean returning to outer space, so with some red, yellow, and green that thing becomes operative, but no dice as apparently the batteries are dead. Blaze is just having a hard time that he gets knocked around by the cat. Pretty crazy how all that went down.

Episode 8

Nyanbo are not cats. They are something like cats, but not exactly cats, and Mike shows why they aren't cats there by being bitten by an actual cat. That was pretty amusing to see those Nyanbos trying to act like cats, as well as to see Mike chasing after that toy mouse and into the drink he goes. Those Nyanbos have some pretty interesting secrets.

This week's episode was delayed due to coverage of the earthquake, but nevertheless it's up now.

Episode 9

The Nyanbos meet the mecha Nyanbo Alpha as he and his robotic comrades are in possession of something they think they need to rebuild their spaceship, and to get it back Alpha has recruited them to fight against an enemy, which happens to be just a cat. As strong as Alpha is, he's just no match for that cat that can break him as if it were nothing. Pretty funny to see Alpha act so high and mighty when in fact there are somethings he shouldn't be fighting.

Episode 10

Kotora is out and about looking for something swirly. After consulting Mike, she finds that in the way of a Naruto, as in the fishcake the knucklehead ninja is named after. But that's not a machine part. That was pretty cute with Kotora hugging that naruto that she got thinking that she did what she thought would make her brother happy.
