Nyanko Days is a 12-episode anime adaptation of the manga by Tarabagani. The studio that produced it was EMT Squared, whilst the director was Yoshimasa Hiraike. Each episode is only 2 minutes long, making it possible to watch the entire series in the span of time it would take to watch an average episode of anime – more or less.
It aired as part of the winter 2017 season, and can be watched on Crunchyroll.
Since this is a series of shorts, this review will be short to keep in the spirit of things. Nyanko Days focuses on Yuuko Konagai and her three cats (or, perhaps more accurately, cat-girls).
Put simply, the show is cute cat girls doing cute things, with a side order of cute regular girls doing cute things – whilst the cats are arguably the main draw, we also see Yuuko interacting with another girl named Azumi at school.
There are a couple of episodes that go without featuring the cats, but there’s absolutely no reason the human characters shouldn’t feature as prominently as the cute cat girls.
With its short episodes, there isn’t really too much to be said about Nyanko Days – if you like watching cute girls do their thing, then it’s likely you’ll blitz through the entire series within a half hour.
If cute girls doing cute things is not your cup of tea, this anime certainly won’t do anything to try and change your mind.
Handing out a score for a review is arbitrary at the best of times, but reviewing a short like this makes an even stronger case for that point. Still, it’s pretty much a given that these reviews have an arbitrary score, so here’s a nonsensical one for Nyanko Days: Nyan/10.
Seriously though, fans of cute girls doing cute things will be hard pressed to find anything that is cuter than this show.
