Genre: Comedy, Kids, Cat
First Aired: Winter 2018, 13 short-form episodes
Summary: Mitchiri Neko are laid-back cats that are always up to some sort of adventure. Every one of the cute and mysterious felines are unique with their own personality and characteristics. One of them is super stretchy while another is a cowboy who is insecure about his ability to whistle. Whether the neko are playing volleyball or avoiding being caught in a crane game, they are always up to something.
Mitchiri Neko is as adorable as it comes. A different neko is the focus of each 30-60 second sketch, followed by a personality sheet of their traits. The series is perfect to watch with the kids or for a quick pick-me-up after a tough day.
You might enjoy this if: You are an Otaku looking to introduce your child to anime and have been searching for the perfect show. Maybe your kid is interested in cats so you watch Mitchiri Neko with them and they love it. The two of you bond while you watch the show and after finishing the series you are closer than ever to your child. It’s a miracle, and all because of this simple anime.
You might not like it if: You are not into shows that are short and sweet.
Note to the Viewer: If you want more Mitchiri Neko in your life, you can download the games. Six games have been released for iPhone and Android.
