After being abandoned on a rainy night, Chibi-neko, a little kitten who dreams of growing up to be human, is taken in by Suwano Tokio. The human world can be a confusing place for a kitten, but Chibi-neko loves being with Tokio, who takes great care of her and plays with her whenever she wants. However, an encounter with Raphael, a majestic wild cat, shakes her belief in many of the things she held dear. Where does Chibi-neko truly belong?
Taruto, a young cat-girl, lives with her masters, Iori and Kinako, in a world where she and any other cat-person appears to be nothing more than a normal animal. Believed to be the descendant of an ancient clan of cat-people with magical powers, Taruto can't help but make many friends and enemies in their new home of Okashina. Can Taruto discover her roots, while managing to not foul up her magical powers at least once? Only time and an awful lot of practice will tell!
Both anime are about the daily adventures of cat girls: to the viewer they appear as small girls with cat ears, but the human characters seem to percieve them as regular cats. The only real difference in the storylines is that Taruto has magical powers.

They soon learn that the bridge holds a legend: "Two people that meet on this bridge will surely meet again, becoming best friends or lovers..." Since Momo and the boy have been waiting a long time now for their unknown partners, the boy is skeptical of this legend; Momo then announces that she will make the legend come true, she promises him that they will meet again, and they part ways. Will the legend come true?
Both Star of Cottonland and Minky Momo Bridge of Dreams surface as simple girly-looking movies that don't have much going for them; that would be right to some extent, but the two titles give a powerful message in the end. The events that occur in Cottonland and Minky Momo are not complicated, little drama occurs, and both possess a mystical feel. Things are very laid back. They are something to watch and reflect on.
