Tada never falls in love, a misleading title? Who cares. The anime is just another high school romance anime. But what drove me to write this review then?
Nyanko Big is perhaps the most interesting character in the anime Tada Never Falls in Love, with a voice for himself, the cat is able to express the weirdest emotions (in its head) and acts strangely on falling in love with a cat who plays hard to get.
Amazing as he is, Nyanko feels strongly about Tada and takes on duties around the house, such as waking up Tada, giving a few other characters a tough time and running off to a stroll by a lake or a river…just regular cat things. Since cats are called nyanko colloquially in Japanese, Nyanko Big should simply mean, big cat, or….fat cat.
Nyanko suffers from a mild case of obesity owing to the combination of his residence being an eatery and his relentless gluttony. Lets look into the best moments from Nyanko Big’s on screen time, which was all I cared about throughout my TNFIL watch.
The strongest moment with Nyanko is when he tries to cross the gap between two buildings in order to reach his love interest the female cat that plays hard to get. Nyanko does this not once but twice, once when he realizes his crush for the female cat and the second time is when he claims to be in love according to his 8-min theory. ( According to Nyanko, people fall in love inevitably if they manage to stare into each others eyes for 8 seconds or longer.)
The second most interesting moment is when Nyanko Big tries to wake Tada up in the most bizarre fashion. Nyanko decides to stare down the sleeping Tada initially and then jumps on Tada’s face to suffocate him out of his sleep. Tada wakes up to pass comments on how fat Nyanko has gotten recently and Nyanko doesnt seem to care much about it. This cat has a self-confidence greater than most humans.
There is not doubt, Nyanko Big is as human as the other characters in the anime, perhaps even more owing to fact that the cat has expressed more emotions than the main characters have individually. Nyanko Big is more than just a cat. Tada Never Falls in Love should be given a shot just for the sake of getting to watch Nyanko Big.
