But that isn't really what the show is about. It is a slice of life anime heavy on the romantic comedy, following Junpei in his quest to become closer to his crush, Mizuno. As in most anime of this genre, complications are abound and more than one girl besides Mizuno falls for Junpei, setting up some very amusing situations. Sure, the concept has been done to death (besides the cats) and these types of anime are a dime a dozen. But that doesn't stop this show from being very, very funny.
The characters are really alive. There are some seriously good one-liners in this series, and the dialogue is just comedy gold in general most of the time. I was intrigued by the feline concept of the show, but was surprised to notice that, when his curse became a subplot throughout the series, I didn't mind. The characters really make this show shine.
The animation is fluid and very well done. This DVD set will ship without a dub, so be prepared to read subtitles if that is something that matters to you. Personally, I prefer watching anime in the original language, so a subtitled set is perfect. If you like comedy, slice of life, love triangles, and a little feline mischief, this is a series you don't want to miss.
The series is directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Kowarekake no Orgel", "Sket Dance", "Hayate the Combat Butler"), screenplay by Shinichi Inotsume ("Kowarekake no Orgel", "Hayate the Combat Butler", "Sket Dance") and features music by Manabu Miwa and Shigenobu Ookawa. Character designs are by Kazuaki Morita ("My Bride is a Mermaid", "Tentai Senshi Sunred") and art direction by Naoko Kosakabe ("NieA 7', "Kissxsis", "Jinki: Extend").
"Nyan Koi!" is a series about a high school sophomore named Junpei Kosaka and he is allergic to cats. So, much that he hates them and one day, he thinks he hears his cat Nyamsus talking to him but dismisses it.
As for Junpei, he is always dreaming about his friend Kaede Mizuno and wishes he can get closer to her. One day, while he was walking home from school, Junpei kicks a can and it hits a neko-jizo-sama statue (a cat statue that serves as a guardian deity of cats). Having broken the cat statue, now Junpei is forced to grant 100 wishes to cats and if he doesn't do it, he will turn into a cat which will eventually kill him because of his allergy towards cats.
And to remind him and watch over him is his family cat Nyamsus who tries to make sure Junpei know of his curse.
So, Junpei will do all he can to help cats, even though he dislikes them. But along the way, each time he helps the cats, he encounters other girls who start to take a liking towards him (and in the process, making other girls jealous) because of the attention he is starting to receive.

The cats are funny, and the music is great, but instead of being a comedy about cats, it ended up being a violent drama about a childhood friend who ruined every episode. Read morePublished 3 months ago by novice
