This series is called PoyoPoyo, but I can’t help but keep on calling it Maru PoyoPoyo. “Maru” is Japanese for “round”…and that is what Poyo the cat is like. On first glance, he looks like a pillow or a delightful challenging toy to get in a UFO Catcher.
Why do I call this series a “feline lover killer”? Because if I were an anime character…I would either be a puddle of goo on the floor, or my eyes are going to be framed with hearts….I love cats! In every episode I watched of this series so far, I have melted..
Crunchyroll has been streaming this series during the Winter season, and every episode is about three minutes. It’s quite similar to Chi’s Sweet Home in talking about the daily life of a cat, though different in how it is about an adult cat that becomes adopted by a family but then going on his maru way.
Poyo’s best friend is Kuro from next door. They are both male cats, but that doesn’t stop Poyo from protecting Kuro. Since Kuro has grown, and is not neutered, there proves to be some interesting guy on guy scenarios.
So far my favorite episodes at this point have been episodes 3, 6, 9. All in one shape or form mention either Kuro or an episode where Poyo was the surrogate mother to a litter of kittens. At this point there are only 10 episodes out on CR, and as a viewer.. I anxiously await for more!
