Mayoi Neko Overrun

Genre: Comedy, harem
Score: OK

Takumi’s sister has a habit of picking up strays – including him, since he’s adopted. But one day she comes home with a strange girl with cat ears.

I’m hesitant to stick the ‘harem’ label on this, because apart an episode or two to establish the setting this series moves straight to its main business: random silliness. They spend an episode playing high-stakes jenga, an episode travelling around the world filming scenes for an advert, and two episodes fighting over whether the girls at school should wear bloomers or sports shorts.

Sadly, nothing really stands out about this series. It’s not bad as such – art, animation quality, writing, acting etc are all acceptable, and it’s enjoyable to watch. It just isn’t world-shattering in any way.
