Summary: A little girl by the name of Kate Hoshimiya has the idea of world domination in her heart and she will not stop until she achieves her goal. Kate organizes the Zvezda group to help in her goal of world conquest. Kate is joined by a diverse cast of characters that help in her Zvezda plot, but they are met with resistance by the team of White Light. Whether the team is attempting to conquer smoking or embarking on a treasure hunt, Zvezda enacts one small plot after another to conquer the world!
World Conquest Zvezda Plot is a nonsensical anime throughout the majority of the episodes. It makes the show easier to enjoy if you know what you are getting into. The humor is hot or miss, depending on the person. Some people seem to appreciate the humor while others feel it falls flat. The hot springs episode was surprisingly fun. Any episode that ends with grandparents fighting is bound to be good right? There are a lot of characters in the show, all with unique attributes and abilities that make them memorable. Some are lovable and some are not, but the interactions and relationships between characters are a positive aspect of the series.
You might enjoy this if: You do not take it too seriously. This is a show with some plot holes and a majority of a season that is episodic in nature. If you take it for what it is, it will be more enjoyable.
You might not like it if: This is the first anime you have ever watched. There are several anime tropes in the series that would turn the novice anime viewer away from the show.
Note to the Viewer: World Conquest Zvezda Plot is a polarizing anime, you will either love it or hate it.
