First Impressions: Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Mayoi Neko Overrun is the most generic title I have seen this season. It's so cliched, that you will probably forget about it a few minutes after watching it, as it offers nothing new to the romantic comedy genre. The story has your stereotypical male harem protagonist, Takumi Tsuzuki and his childhood friend Fumino Serizawa, your stereotypical tsundere character, running a confectionary store called "Stray Cats". One day, Takumi's sister-in-law Otome, finds a girl named Nozomi, an orphan with cat ears (WTF!?), bringing her home, resulting in the typical harem situations to begin.

Mayoi Neko Overrun's main problem isn't that it's generic, but the fact that it doesn't even implement those cliches and stereotypes correctly. Jokes are very awkward, characters aren't interesting and the majority of the first episode is insanely boring, not to mention confusing. Judging by what I've seen, it's safe to say that I will cease to follow Mayoi Neko Overrun this season, as it fails at delivering a decent, if generic, romantic comedy, a feat that isn't really that hard to accomplish.
