Storyline

The 3 Kisugi sisters, Rui, Hitomi and Ai run the Cat's Eye Cafe. They are the daughters of Michael Heinz, a painter who mysteriously disappeared in the seventies. In order to find out what happened to him, they steal each item of their father's collection from their new various owners. They send out cards labeled "Cat's Eye" to the police warning them every time they plan a theft, but still manage to escape. Inspector Toshio Utsumi, in charge of the Cat's Eye case, happens to be Hitomi's boyfriend which proves very helpful for the girls, but creates obvious problems for Hitomi's conscience.

Great way to kill time if your an anime fan
4 August 2003 | by joethecondorSee all my reviews

The animated television show Cat's Eye was based off of a comic created by Tsukasa Hojo of City Hunter fame. It was the story of three girls who ran a cafe during the day and moonlighted as daring art theives at night. It's seems that the girls father, the famous painter Micheal Heinz had vanished and one of his creations held the secret to the mystery. Making the matter even further complicated was the fact that most of the stuff was turning up in the hands of dangerous criminals. Not a great show, but not with out it's charm either. Described as sorta of a Lupin III shoujo (girls manga) style, show Cat's Eye was fun if a bit repetitive. One thing I Could not figure out was how Toshio became a police detective in this show. The Theives are called Cat's Eye which consist of three girls, who might I add don't wear masks. Then there is a cafe called Cat's eye ran by three girls right next to the police station for crying out loud ! Oh well Cat's Eye is still a classic and the theme song is lovely, anime from a bygone era.
