Cat Planet Cuties (2010), which began as a series of light novels by Okina Kamino, embodies the Japanese predilection for the kawaii (ultra-cute) image of girls wearing cats' ears. Eris, who resembles a pneumatically overendowed woman with furry ears and a tail, arrives on Earth from the planet "Catia" to establish peaceful relations. The first human she encounters is mild-mannered teenager Kio Kakazu, who already has two classmates nurturing secret crushes on him--bullying neighbor/aspiring CIA agent Manami and ex-assassin Aoi. Other buxom Catians take up residence in Kio's house with their robo-cat Assistroid. For reasons never fully explained, the Catians are fighting the Dog People, one of whose nasty leaders sniggers exactly like Muttley in the old Wacky Races show. The humans are drawn into the conflict, with Kio's aw-shucks kind heart winning the day. Cat Planet Cuties is no more inane than many other fan service series. But the filmmakers can't seem to decide if they're making a nudie jiggle–a-thon, a teen action-adventure, or a comedy about miniature robots. They cut from Kio struggling to extricate his head from Eris's over-ample cleavage to Aoi shooting it out with various evil-doers to an Assistroid holding up a little sign, like Genma in Ranma 1/2. Cat Planet Cuties embodies the big eyes/big guns/big breasts stereotype that leads people to dismiss Japanese animation as mindless fodder for hormonal adolescent boys. Episode 13 is actually an OAV sequel (2011), in which the characters play strip versions of poker, mah-jongg, Twister, Monopoly, and other games. (Rated TV MA: violence, violence against women, nudity, risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

She's as frisky as she is curvy and kitty wants to play! The flirty fun begins when nice guy Kio has a close encounter with a sexy, alien cat-girl named Eris. She's every nerd's fantasy come true, and she and her fellow intergalactic felines are setting up base in Kio's house. Unfortunately, Kio doesn't have a lot of time for heavy petting. Secret agencies and enemy dog-aliens are sniffing around, hoping to get their paws on his pussycat pal s tail! The guy's definitely got his hands full but with Eris jumping in his lap to purr in his ear, it s likely Kio will land on his feet!

Format:Blu-ray
In 2003, Okina Kamino and illustrator Hoden Eizo and Nishieda would work on the Japanese light novel "Asobi ni Iku yo!" (Let's Go Play). In 2006, a manga adaptation by 888 was created and serialized in the manga magazine "Monthly Comic Alive".

With the popularity of the manga series and light novels, a 12-episode anime adaptation was created in 2010 titled "Asobi ni Ikuyo: Bombshells in the Sky" and now, the series will be released on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment under the name, "Cat Planet Cuties".

VIDEO:

"Cat Planet Cuties" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1). AIC Plus+ did a magnificent job when it came to the visual look of the anime series. Backgrounds are well-painted and detailed, the characters designs and even mechanical designs look very good and plenty of shadows and details. Overall, the series looks great on Blu-ray.

AUDIO:

As for the lossless audio, "Cat Planet Cuties" is presented with an English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack and the Japanese version is presented in Japanese 2.0 Dolby TrueHD. Because the series features a good balance of dialogue and action, I was hoping to hear a more immersive soundtrack for the action scenes. A little more use of the surround channels, but for the most part, the lossless soundtrack is good. I did notice differences with the Japanese and English version, as Kio sounds much more younger (ie. junior high or early teens), whereas the English version, Kio sounds like an older teen. Nevertheless, voice acting is well-done on both soundtracks and the English version of course, has a been more dynamic range thanks to its 5.1 lossless track.

Subtitles are in English.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a harem... May 15, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Asobi ni iku yo! (Let's play) - Bombshells From the Sky - what this series is supposed to be named, is a great all around anime. It is so much more than a typical harem show. There is action, mystery, comedy, character exploration, sadness and an amazing soundtrack. I agree with the reviewer who said it was so much deeper than you would think.

I hate that it was renamed for the Western release because many will not look past cute cat girls to begin with in order to see the other wonderful things about the anime. But those that do will be in for a treat.

I must say that you will be better off for watching the subbed version rather than the dubbed. To miss Kanae Ito's voice performance would be a tragedy.

It is not a 'dirty' or explicit anime at all. It is sweet and funny. It is not for children, but most earlier teens and up should be okay depending on parental guidance (unless cartoon boobies and innocent innuendo bother you - if so, turn off network & cable TV now!). Give it a chance and I don't think you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Catgirls then this is for you July 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'll admit, i was skeptical upon getting this one, but i was surprised. It's not all boobs and crazy fan service. It has a story (decent, but not the best), and a good whit about it. Of course there is some T&A in this anime, but it's far from over done. It's basically your typical Harem Anime with three girls liking the same dude. I found it quite enjoyable, but i still favor Love Hina and Toradora! over this one. Overall, not a bad buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Harem Show May 18, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the Blu-ray version of the Blu-Ray/DVD package. The graphics were very crisp and colorful. I didn't run into any problems playing the disks. It comes with 12 episodes, an OVA, textless songs for openings and endings, and some of the teasers for the next shows. The last teaser is a "outtake" version of the other teasers, so be sure to watch it. Amazon has given it a rating of NR, but the package states that it is MA, because of the bare breasts.

I have watched it 3-4 times, and although the plot line is very simple, it is also a very funny show. The basic plot is that Eris, the cat girl, comes to earth to have fun and be an ambassador (of sorts). Eris is hard to get upset with, since she is so nice and loves everyone (especially Kio). The more TV shows, movies, and anime that you have watched, the funnier it is. The references vary from the opening segment of episode three, to figurines, and posters, etc. You definitely need to be familiar with Star Trek and Muttley (see him on You Tube). I saw things varying from as new as an anime that just aired within the last year to a poster on Alfred Hitchcock, the Godfather, and I saw one poster with Bruce Willis on it. I particularly like the Shelby GT-500 they drove around, since I used to own one, lol.
