No of Episodes : 12
Genre : Action,Adventure,Comedy,Mecha,Sci-Fi,Shounen
Plot : Each episode centers on Nuku Nuku's adventures and mishaps in high school, and her relationship to students, the overall series plot centers on the evil Mishima Industries' scheme to dominate the world through its products. In opposition to this plan are the slightly nutty Kyuusaku Natsume and Nuku Nuku, the android who acts as a companion to his young son. Nuku Nuku's classmates are all eccentrics, Futaba, the class president, is a domineering control-freak, who cannot leave her authority in school. Chieko Shirakaba is the rich snob with the two yes-girls who always take her side. There is a bookworm, a mystic, a scientist, and a pop singer. All of these are true to their descriptions: the mystic is always foretelling doom via tarot cards, spirits, or some other occult technique. The pop singer never says anything except as a song. The bookworm always has her nose in a book. These eccentricities add to the series' humor. (Source: ANN)
Our Review : This is one of the most under-rated anime series of all time, do not let it's low average score fool you, this is buried treasure right here.
Story (7/10) -
The story to Nuku Nuku is very simple - Nuku Nuku is a cat in a humans body and is an android. She goes to high school, and fights the evil Mashima Industries. That's about it. This anime is episodic, meaning that things happen by the episode, so don't expect any story arcs here.
Art (9/10) -
The art is a bit dated, but very well pulled off. All the colors and character designs are fitting, and the animation quality is wonderful.
Sound (9/10) -
The sound is great. All the character's voices fit and the sound effects are also fitting. The only complaint I have is that often one male main character sings, and his voice gets very old, very fast.
Character (8/10) -
Nuku Nuku is really one of my favorite characters of all time. She is extremely cute and has a very good personality that anybody will grow to love within a few episodes. The other characters are great too, and are all funny in their own way.
Enjoyment - (10/10)
I enjoyed this series massively. Thus the 10/10 rating. I really think if you give this anime a chance, you will love it as much as I do.
Overall - (9/10)
This is a great series that is very under-rated. If you have an open mind and aren't expecting very much, you will love this anime.
