This show is basically what it says on the package. It's a slice of life show who's gimmick is that it's cute girls are all cat human hybrids with cat mannerisms. The anime skimps over some things that might not be clear to everyone. An obvious plot point is that the cat girls grow up much faster than human girls. While it's not outright stated it's made pretty clear at the start though it bares stateing here as it can leave some less inclinced to grasp such things in the dark otherwise.  Story The series is to some extent very setting or world based as most of the series focusses on these girls having to adapt to society with their cat quirks while also growing up quicker than normal humans. All of this is done in a lighthearted manner. The girls quirks generally are used for humour while also serving as something important to the plot. At the same time as a series which originally was fanservice orientated as an (erotic) visual novel this series certainly doesn't shy away of portraying it's characters in an alluring manner with the exception of one character. Characters  The series characters are largely from it's source material all mostly build upon established archtypes. The main duo of course are the series duo of mascots the energetic but clumsy and duncy Chocolate and not-quite-kuudere mostly stoic Vanilla. However the other original cat-girls get episodes focussed on them as well or rather they share they episodes with their partner cat as all the cat girls are conveniently paired up just like Chocolate and Vanilla. The additional character added to the series serves as a addition that ends up pretty much leading the overarching plot of this adaptation. While not stagnant at the same time she does function as a plot device of sort. This is not to say this series as a strong overarching story as most of the episodes are either two parters or entirely episodic and able to be watched out of order. Of course at first this is less the case.  Sound & Animation Now for the animation I have no complaints. The series does quite well with it's budget. The ending theme is a charming collage while the voice acting all is solid if unremarkable. It has to be said to fans of the series that the voice actors have changed from the games.  Conclusion This series is a fan service filled slice of life that simply does nothing wrong for what it is.  It's largely unremarkable other than the setting. While it's cast is certainly fun it doesn't really end up being all that memorable of an experience in watching. The final episode as also very much a non-ending kind of feeling episode.
