Aigoo~ Since I’ve been quite the douche over the past few…months?…I’m here to make up for the long absence [thank school work for that. ( +_+)] with some shows I managed to watch during Christmas break — which was, yes, ages ago. OTL

First off the list: Nekogami Yaoyorozu.

Yes, thank you, thank you. I watch weird, kiddie-ish shows — no need to slap it on my face. OTL Anyways, Nekogami Yaoyorozu’s about Mayu who is a cat god banished by her parents from their heavenly abode due to her naughtiness and obstinacy. As a result, she lives off from Koyama Yuzu, a kind hearted and calm antique shop owner.

Promising absolutely nothing grand from the very beginning, Nekogami offers its audience with nothing but pure laughs. Each episode fluctuates from good comedy to not-so-good comedy centered around Mayu’s daily life as a banished god. Kudos though on the subtle treatment of Mayu’s inherent kindness despite her being mischievous and childish.

Mayu’s god/goddess/deity friends who often visit Yuzu’s house would be the point of interest here since they possess their own personalities and specialties. I especially like Shamo (the small girl with purple-pink hair sitting up front) in all her ‘like a boss’ glory. There’s also Sasana and Meiko’s constant bickering as well as Gonta’s unfaltering admiration for Yuzu.

All in all, Nekogami’s the type of show you’d watch when a.) you’re looking for some good, clean fun, b.) you’re waiting for the next episode of your favorite show, c.) you’re a cat person like I am, and d.) you have absolutely nothing else to watch. I wouldn’t say it’s bad but I don’t think it’s a great loss if you don’t see it either. It’s your regular, everyday slice-of-life show where gods — who are supposed to be doing great, grand stuff — do such mundane things as playing video games and bumming around in general. (^_^)v

UPDATE: You can also give my Deadman Wonderland review a quick read here. (^_^)7
