    Nora Handa is a boy who lives with Shachi Yuuri, who was adopted by his mother. With everyone supporting, the two of them grew up healthily even after their parents passed away. Shachi, who likes Nora the most, wakes him up every morning.

    Nora spends his happy student life with Michi Kuroki, who is a disciplinary committee, honor student at school and childhood friend of the main character, Yuuki Asuhara, who is a gal but is very bright and can talk his worries to, and more friends at school.

    One day, Nora meets a girl who calls herself Patricia at the park on the way to the school. Patricia is a queen at hell, and claims to come here to destroy the life on land. However, she is damaged heavily because she touched the life for the first time. The energy was stronger than her, so Nora needed to tend her. Patricia asked him to tell her about the mysteries of life, and he had to even explain the ero book that he found at the park...?!

    Episode 1

    And so it begins with the cat Nora hanging around in the house full of girls, and things literally get heated because the house burns down in the end. Pretty ominous start that was. While that was pretty bad stuff with some bad animation to go along with it as I have come to expect out of shorts, at least it has some charm to it.

      The cat goes to school with Patricia, and for the princess of the underworld school is not exactly a safe place for her. Those idiots sure are going overboard with the whole kissing stuff thinking that it will have the same effect, but it won't work on just anything.

      So with that, I'll keep watching this for now as while the animation quality is atrocious, the characters and antics are enough to for me to put up with this for just three minutes a week.

        Episode 3

        And here comes Patricia's sisters from the underground, and they have a bone to pick with Nora for being the reason why Patricia hasn't come back home. Lucia is just a klutz there hitting Patricia like that while she's asleep. Patricia sure isn't easy to wake up, which is a good thing.

          It's off to the beach, and it's a good thing Patricia doesn't live too far away with what this beach is charging to park. For a cat, the beach is a pretty dangerous place, especially when Nora is being used as ammo for some tank that was built to take aim at those with large busts. Things just keep on getting wild.

            Those girls sure aren't going to appear in any quiz bowl competitions in Fastest Finger First anytime soon as they just totally whiffed on the question. The only person who actually knew the answer had a buzzer malfunction, and the one who got the question correct is Nora, who spoke in a language that only the host can understand. This is an example of how not to do a quiz bowl.

              Episode 6

              And due to some special magic, the girls have become, goats? Not only are they goats, but everything is live action in this episode. WTF was that all about? At least it means the girls get to experience what being an animal is like as Nora is that, but nevertheless I feel that the director ran out of ideas and did just whatever they can to change things up.

                Ah, yes the classic "We're live action now" joke aka an excuse to give the animators a break for one episode and save on animation budget. Part of me wants to gripe, but I also know animators can be overworked too. So I'll just hope the episode lead to a bit of rest for people.

                  Episode 7

                  Given the low budget nature of this show that it decides to make fun of itself with this super sentai parody. The girls are quite worried about their paychecks more so than saving the city from some monster customer and they create a guy behind the cash register that is easily defeated. Their last chance at fusion yields a lady store clerk, but her gratitude caused the monster to explode, so the day is saved. Those girls certainly are not on the same page but it all worked out somehow.

                    Episode 8

                    To celebrate the anniversary of Nora's mother's death, everybody goes to the beach and lights off fireworks. Of course seeing that Patricia is from the world of the dead that this is not exactly something she would understand. Anyway, pretty chill that was seeing how crazy it has been.

                      Episode 9

                      And now, the girls are all talking with only their crotches are being shown, albeit with censorship of course seeing that these girls are going commando. Really stupid idea that was, especially when some guy comes in his boxers there at the end. This show sure is desperate for ideas, though that was pretty much by design.

                        Episode 10

                        Now, this has become a murder mystery visual novel as Lucia was found dead. And the one responsible for that is none other than the player himself, Nora. She died after getting hit on the head by a vase while chasing Nora. Things just continue to be messed up in this show.

                          Episode 11

                          And Nora meets his dead mother thanks to Patricia needing to clean up a clog when she flushes her useless grimoire down a magical circle toilet. Nora is warned about why it's a bad idea to interact with the dead, but even so he still managed to return from his memories. Pretty much, everything that happens ends up going down the toilet.

                            Episode 12 (Finale)

                            And so it ends with Nora turning human, only to turn back into a cat because he's naked. Patricia was out, but that's her natural state as she is from the nether world after all. So while she's out, that provided an opportunity for a kiss and needing clothes, he's back to being a cat all while his human form wasn't shown on screen. And just like that, this show ends with yet another crazy idea.

                            Overall, this show is pretty much trashy with the biggest problem being the awful animation quality. Then there are the characters that are tough to put up with, and the humor is just all over the place. Just about the only redeeming quality of this show are the crazy outside-the-box ideas like the live action goat episode, and the self-awareness that this show is not trying to be anything good which made them worth a look seeing that this is a short. That said, this show was pretty messed up.
