Mayoi Neko Overrun! – 13 (Recap)

「迷い猫、まとまった」 (Mayoi Neko, Matomatta)
“Stray Cat, Compiled”

Even with no new scenes added, this was one of the best and most entertaining recap episodes I’ve ever watched. It’s hard to imagine “entertaining” and “recap” used together, but this one had an interesting way of going about it — cast commentary in character by Itou Kanae, Iguchi Yuka, and Taketatsu Ayana. I thoroughly enjoyed the full 24 or so minutes as the three of them chatted away right through the opening and ending sequences. This was all more or less a scripted drama CD timed to the scenes being shown, but was surprisingly well done despite the simplicity of it.

Once again, a lot of the humor came from Fumino and Chise arguing back and forth, but some of the embarrassment they expressed over watching themselves was pretty damn funny too. There were also the reactions from character who weren’t present for some scenes, such as the one in episode three between Fumino and Takumi. Fumino kept making noises just so that no one could hear what was actually being said while Chise kept telling her to shut the hell up. There’s no forgetting the Grand Braver episode either, which turned to be another Umenomori production and resulted in Chise singing along to the opening theme and completely butchering it. God damn I don’t ever remember Yuka ever being this funny, but she should really give up those somewhat annoying Index roles and play more of these completely annoying yet hilarious rich ojou-sama type ones. Hearing Fumino and Chise flip out to some of the naked scenes was pretty golden too, particularly Kaho’s one. Nozomi on the other hand was supposedly stripping at times while watching people getting naked onscreen, so you can imagine Fumino’s reaction to that.

Anyway, they did joke about whether a second season will be made or not, so it’ll be interesting to see if that was actually a hint or sorts. If you watched this series to completion, it’s definitely worth checking out this recap. It actually added a bit to the story by hearing what the girls thought about each other getting closer to Takumi behind their backs. It was nothing significant but still fun to hear regardless.

    maybe they will make OVA or special until new season…who knows??

    Why… Why a recap? Would of been better if it was a new epi about Nozomi

    As this series was originally announced to be only twelve episodes, consider this recap as a bonus of sorts. It was a pretty good one too, which you have to watch for yourself to get a feel for.

    Hmm, from what I’ve read, this sounds more like a commentary. xD
    Which I’ll probably enjoy xD if [Ryuumaru] subs it that is… haha.

    Nicely done, I think. ;P Dunno about a season 2.. but I had fun with this show so I guess I’ll be fine whether there is one or not.

    what I do want is another season of Nyan Koi

    • June 30, 2010 at 11:58 amboingman

      I agree. I’ll get really mad if this show here gets a sequel, while real funny stuff WITH a story (OMG!) receives none. And while we’re talking about Yuka. I like her role in Nyan Koi best, since it’s a NON-Loli chara.

      Just a reminder that Nyan Koi already announced that a sequel was green-lit at the end of its run.

  • June 30, 2010 at 10:03 amRockmanshii

    This was so fun.Hope they make a second season.

    Naked Kaho was the best episode of the series.

    IMO, it would have made more sense to put an “epiloge” episode that have nothing to do with the storyline but pure random naked fanservice episode.

  • July 2, 2010 at 2:23 pmLero

    Index annoying? Mmml… no I don’t find like that more get used to like the more I read about her on the LN series.
