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!

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

I love Sci-Fi, and I love sexy naked animated females! Well who doesn't? Anyway, this series offers both of these! I noticed this series has 288 minutes of pure MEOW fun from outer-space. Enjoy!

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.

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.

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.

Super high quality anime, super cute, super fun. Basically it's about a cat girl from a planet od cat girls who comes to earth and all the trouble she attracts, and misunderstandings she has about earth customs, especially after she finds the main characters porn stash.

Repressed people beware of boobs. This is much more interesting than the typical "harem anime". Actually has a good coherent story and at least one episode (#9 i think) may make your eyes damp.

I probably never would have watched this anime if it weren't for the fact that the trailer for this series was included on every single Funimation Blu-ray and DVD I've ever watched because at first glance it looks like one of "those" anime shows that is aimed exclusively at immature male Otakus, but while there is certainly plenty of that (Strip poker? OK, I can see that, but whoever heard of strip mahjong? Strip chess? Strip rock-paper-scissors?) this is actually an amazingly well written parody of anime, manga, and other forms of entertainment that have strongly influenced the creators, from Captain Future to Muttley.

The plot, such as it is, involves first contact with an alien from outer space, Eris, who just so happens to be a young, beautiful, large breasted, sweetheart of a girl who looks (and acts) like a human cosplaying a cat girl (with cute ears and a tail no less). Naturally, (on the advice of Kio's pet cat) she contacts our hero, Kio Kakazu, a shy, nerdy, nice guy from Japan's equivalent of flyover country, in this case Okinawa, who ends up winning the nerd lottery because Eris chooses to follow him home, eventually resulting in the designation of his house (in which he conveniently lives all by himself) as the Catian embassy and the increase in residents of said home by seven drop dead gorgeous young females, nearly half of whom are in love with him.
