Mayoi Neko Overrun! – 12 (END)

「迷い猫、決めた」 (Mayoi Neko, Kimeta)
“Stray Cat, Decided”

While I’ve enjoyed the randomness of this series, super robots and all, I admit I wasn’t expecting much more than an open-ended finale to this twelve episode adaptation. To my pleasant surprise, it focused on Nozomi again and had Fumino and Chise admitting they have feelings for Takumi, making it much better than that.

「迷い猫、待ってった」 (Mayoi Neko, Mattetta)
“Stray Cat, Waited”

I haven’t placed much bearing on the production staff changes every episode in this series, but when hints of Satou Takuya‘s work in Seitokai no Ichizon came through, I instinctively took notice. With all the timely comedic transitions, back and forth bickering, and appearance of a new girl, this was easily the funniest episode thus far.

「迷い猫、抜いた」 (Mayoi Neko, Nuita)
“Stray Cat, Pulled Out”

Leave it up to Chise to use her Umenomori wealth to rip off the game of Jenga, add in a bunch of semi-erotic stipulations on the blocks (e.g. cosplay), and rename it Power Blocks for her personal enjoyment. Remember when this show was about the hardships of being an orphan and the love square that develops? Because I sure don’t.
