Excuse my pun, but this series is simply a-MEOW-zing. ^_^,
This review is from: All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku TV - Keep the Peace on Earth! (Vol. 1) (DVD)
Yes, I said a-MEOW-zing. Please forgive me for that, but at least I'm not saying purr-fect, right? Actually, the only reason I didn't say that is because there's no such thing as perfect. Ah, but I ramble! Let's get crackin' on that review, shall we?
Art style: B+. Although this was what grabbed my attention at first, I'm really not terribly fond of the 'Anime retro-esque' style. I guess I've just gotten too used to newer artstyles. I find nothing wrong with the art; it's all a matter of taste, I guess.
Originality: A. I'm sort of lumping the OVA and the TV series together on this one. Have you ever seen anything remotely similar to the idea of a stray cat given a second chance at life as a human androbot, in exchange for saving the world from Mishima Industries while trying to act human? I think not. Although it contains mecha, an overly defined line between good and evil, and cliched characters, it's all for the sake of parodizing.
Voice Acting: A. Rarely do I ever see an anime where I like the voice acting equally in both English and Japanese. Now there are a few exceptions: I like Rie, Ryunosuke, and Futaba's voices better in Japanese, whereas I like Akiko's, Mr. Yamagata's, and Kyusaku's voices better in English. So, I'll watch it subbed or dubbed, no problem.
Music: B. It's not outstanding, though rather easy on the ears. The theme songs are a bit catchy, though, I'll admit.
Number of episodes: B. I had become so used to buying dvds with three episodes, I was pretty much ecstatic when I found that there were four on here. Thanks, ADV Films. You make VIZ look stupid. =D
Overall: A. An innocent, cute series that (almost) anyone can enjoy. Warning: May have you curling your fingers into a fist and rubbing your face with the back of your hand while purring. I know from experience. ^^;
