THAT ' S SHOW TIME THE DIGITAL ANIMATION OF GAINAX
Hard to explain , easy to get fun with it, this time Naota kun will find a new character in his life, the new girl in town is called Eri Ninamori, she is all that one mature girl is : confident , organized but also she have her dark side, she likes to lie and cheat for whatever she wants to get, as the mayor daughter , she is very rich and now she is organizing the theatre play of her class called "The puss with bots" but she cheated the election of the roles and put our unlucky friend Naota as the cat and her as the main character, all just to be a star in the play. But now here is something different in the head of Naota, he wears a hat all the time just for not being spotted with his....cat ears!!! Of course the naughty Haruko knows this secrets and starts teasing and touching the cat ears in a special way, so Naota starts to act like a cat, Mamimi seems to enjoy that ears in the same way. The problem now is Eri and her parent's relationship, the mayor is about to be arrested and her family is just in the way of get a divorce soon, so the last thing on the life of Eri is show them the way that she is ...a star.
But Naota prefers to die that confront the shame of appear dressed as a cat in a play, for that reason Eri will use all her resources to convince him (including the typical "i will stay here tonight" scheme) but thanks to an accident and a fight of opinions , Naota is not the one who will grow "something from his head" this time.
The best feature of this ova is the return of the "bullet effect" a la Matrix-esque and the fast animation that the Gainax guys know how to do , also there is the presentation of two more characters : Junko Miyaji , the president of the class and obsessed with punish the class all times, and the mysterious Onna Hisho, the secret lover of the Mayor and mysterious collaborator of Eri, that for unknown
reasons is helping her.
The robot of this series is a incredible design of an arachnid that can use the same human where it comes and turn the legs into a powerful weapon like blades.
The music is superb as always with known themes by the pillows, and the perfect background music in each scene of this ova.
If you are looking for something really weird and extremely funny, here is your OVA , the best from gainax until the date, it combines a serious story with a weird one but not losing the balance of both themes.
