4.0 out of 5 stars the Cat Food For Lunch Bunch, March 25, 2004
This review is from: All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku TV - Keep the Peace on Earth! (Vol. 1) (DVD)
All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (I'll use the short title from now one - I promise) started out in life as a manga by Yuzo Takada and a very popular OVA series, followed by this TV series and a second OVA set. It is the tongue in check story of androbot Atsuko Nakume who was created by scientist Kyusaku Natsume out of, among other things, the brain of a cat. Intended to help fight the plans of Mishima Industry to take over the world via appliances (go figure!), Nuku Nuku appears completely human until she grooms herself, chows down on cat food, or throws a rampaging washing machine into orbit.
Mishima is headed by an evil president (Hell Mishima), who is laboring under the delusion that he is in command of a group of underground super-nasties who are really company employees in disguise. If that seems a little peculiar, consider Nuku Nuku's first day in school when we are introduces to a class composed of a compulsive rock singer, a Cordelia clone complete with groupies, a mystical space cadet, a control freak, and a mad scientist - among others. Matters are complicated by the romantic misadventures of Nuku Nuku's 'brother' Ryunosuke Natsume. And Mishima, his mother is really Mishima's evil lieutenant, Bloody Akiko.
Obviously, these tails (oops!) of the All Purpose Cultural... refuse to take themselves seriously. One can only say that the TV series is really a satire of the entire genre of
Super powered schoolgirl anime. You can't help but like it though. Nuku Nuku's exuberant, klutzy cuteness is just what the doctor ordered after an overdose of Steel Angel Kurumi. Acting is actually perfectly in character (even the dubbing has its moments) and the art, which is very deliberately 80's retro, is ideal. If you like light slapstick, cuteness, and a dollop of sarcasm check this series out.
