Taruto, the heroine of this 2001 broadcast series, is a kitten who looks like a little girl. The human and cat characters are drawn in the same style, so it's often difficult to tell them apart--only the ears and tails distinguish the felines. Although she just remembers her life with her beloved master Ioji, she's actually the lost princess of the kingdom of Ganache. Masked agents from Ganache's enemies, two hench-cats who belong to a sinister neighbor, and a weird woman who "collects cats" are all after Taruto, but there isn't a hint of menace. Taruto invariably botches her attempts to invoke her magical powers, but the mishaps aren't funny. A treacly mixture of magical girl and sweet little animal genres, Taruto may charm very young girls and devotees of kawaii (ultra-cute) anime; others will find it induces insulin shock. (Rated 7 and older: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

This cute anime series is about an adorable neko named Taruto. After hearing a certain fairy tale, and due to her magical abilities, she believes herself to be the legendary princess of the Kinka. She makes new friends, tries to keep from getting caught by a cat crazed girl, and attempts to use her magic to help people. I highly recommend Magical Meow Meow Taruto to anyone who likes anime. I'm 34 and I love it :)

The show is really good. It has the innocence and scenery of another anime favorite of mine, A Little Snow Fairy Sugar. I love magical girl shows, so no problem with me or in this case MAGICAL CAT shows. However if your super into action, you'll probably hate this. I'm an adult and I love this stuff.

The movie is short and sweet. Each disc is only 66 minutes and contains three episodes each. These are the shortest anime DVDs that I know of.

I'm actually glad I bought the discs new as they were all under 20 except the last one and each comes with a sticker. I won't use the sticker because its too cute and rare to waste but they are fun to look at and they were a big surprise as I found this nowhere in the description.
