[ plot summary ]

Chisato has a bit of a problem after being followed to school by an abandoned kitten. Attempting to find a good home for the kitten, Miyu, Chisato and gang ask a local cat-lover who has just lost his cat, to take in the kitten.

Still, remembering another woman he'd met while looking for his cat, he decides to try and find that woman and ask her to take in the kitten...

[ capsule review ]

The TV series Shin VP Miyu is quite different from the OAV series. The story for this episode is pretty typical TV fare with half hearted voice acting. The voice for Miyu while rather sedate and in keeping with Miyu's character can come across at times as just being plain bored while at other times can be a little too "nice" which isn't in keeping with her character. The confrontation between Miyu and the Shinma strikes the viewer as being rather drawn out and staged with overdramatic pauses as though waiting for the audience to ooh and ahh. Still, overall the TV series is just that, standard TV fare with very average voice acting, animation and slightly sub-par music themes.
