All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (Japan 1992)

Rating: ***

Divided into six installments.

This series is wonderfully fun and cute in the "Project A-ko" vein. Nuku Nuku is the consciousness of a cat placed inside a combat cyborg chasis designed to look like a cute female high school student (of course!). The series is about her trying to stay out of trouble while trying to protect her "family" from the major military outfit that wants her for various reasons. Episodes 1 and 2 are probably the best of the bunch, but Nuku Nuku (played with exuberance by Ranma-chan voice actress Megumi Hayashibara) shines throughout the whole series.
