The many great cats throughout Japan's history are back to strut their stuff in a new season. They continue to leave their mark on history, doing whatever they want, but what else would you expect from a cat? They get bored fast, and love to sharpen their claws and take naps. They might be scared of water and loud noises, but the amount of energy they display when they get excited is something to see! What kind of history will we see them create this time around?

Okay, so when you see a bunch of sevens averaging out to an eight, you know something's up. But here's the thing. This show is hecking cute. And educational, at that.  Story: There is really not much to say about the "story". The show is basically Japanese history, but everyone is a cat. As a history buff, I absolutely love the story, because let me tell you, Japanese history is full of some SUPER interesting stuff.  So, they take that super interesting stuff, and then they make it very...cat. Meowwww. I also like that they dedicated an entire episode to the battle of Sekigahara. For such an important battle (and such an interesting story behind it), I see it glossed over surprisingly often in most history texts I've read. Anyway, overall, the story is a super cute and silly take on actual historical events. Animation: The animation is not good. But, it's not good in a very deliberate, stylized way. Maybe not the best quality, but very simple and cute.  Sound: Nothing really stands out much about the sound.  Characters: Not really much to say about them. They're basically cat versions of actual historical figures, so if you know your history, you already know who the characters are. Overall: Maybe it's not excellent, but it is cute. This is a SUPER CUTE show that is also very educational and can teach you about Japanese history in a fun, silly, and adorable way.  As a history buff, I loved it, but I'd recommend it to anyone, really. Cute fun history show, where historical moments are reenacted by a bunch of cartoon cats. What's not to love?
