The Cat’s Eye series has seen a couple of licensors tackle it over the years and at the moment it doesn’t have a proper one. TMS Entertainment is bringing it out through Amazon Prime, however, and the folks at RetroCrush are rolling in some clips and have brought out a new six-minute clip on the warm summer seas where there’s just the slightest chance of romance – with a smooth criminal!
The show originally ran for 73 episodes through 1985 and the series was released on DVD in North America through Nozomi Entertainment, who acquired it in summer 2013.
The series is available through Amazon Prime Video. The first half of the two-season series in its original Japanese with English subtitles. You can find the series page here.
Plot concept: The three Kisugi sisters—Rui, Hitomi and Ai—during the day run a small cafe called “Cat’s Eye.” To discover the whereabouts of their father, the artist Michael Heintz, who has disappeared, Hitomi and her sisters rob art galleries as the smart and mysterious thief “Cat’s Eye” in the hope that his works can give them clues about his vanishing. The crucial point is that Hitomi has a relationship with Toshi, a police inspector who has sworn to catch “Cat’s Eye”—and of course he has no idea about Hitomi’s double life.
