Cat Planet Cuties Episode 11 – Quick Summary
In Cat Planet Cuties episode 11, “I Came Looking for You,” Eris, Aoi, Manami, Kio, and the rest learned the terrible truth: in two weeks, the Catian ship would plow into Earth. The resulting explosion could extinguish all life. There was some good news: the ship would destroy itself before it allowed that to happen. But that meant a complete loss of the entire crew. What can Eris and her friends do to save the ship? Has Jens already anticipated their moves? And just how much does a rocket cost, anyway?

Favorite Quote from Cat Planet Cuties Episode 11
I think Manami was right about the ship. Capture from the Blu Ray.
I liked the design of the spaceship from Land of the Giants. I liked it even more compared to what I saw came before, even in something like Destination Moon. But what really set my expectations for spaceships was the USS Enterprise from the original Star Trek series. After seeing her, anything that looked like a rocket ship with fins just didn’t cut it for me.
In this episode, Kio had to use his Catian device to convert some ballistic missiles into a spaceship. The device could reconfigure matter at a molecular level. The only limitation was his imagination.
When he finished, it looked like something out of Destination Moon. I thought to myself, “Not bad for a kid. Kinda retro.”
That’s when Manami said (21:12), “The design is a little old-fashioned, though.”
Almost seemed like she was reading my mind! Or the artists for that scene intentionally channeled 1950s sci-fi!
Favorite Moment from Cat Planet Cuties Episode 11
Aoi felt justifiably angry with Manami. Capture from the Blu Ray.
Manami crossed a line in this episode. Deep down, I think she knew it. But she just couldn’t help herself. Then Aoi called her on it.
My favorite moment in this episode was part of that scene. Aoi had overhead Manami berating Kio. Why? Because Kio didn’t recognize how Aoi felt about him. Manami said he needed to be more sensitive. Kio had no idea what was going on, and Manami putting him into a headlock didn’t help his understanding.
But Aoi understood. Very, very clearly.
Alone in a conference room (well, alone except their Assisteroids), Aoi called Manami on it. First, she asked why Manami would bring up something like that on the eve of a battle. Manami’s attempt to justify herself by saying Aoi wouldn’t do it just gave Aoi more ammunition. Namely, that Aoi knew full well that Manami loved Kio and didn’t have the courage to confess to him, either.
They had not gotten very far into the conversation before Manami realized she had screwed up. Capture from the Blu Ray.
What most impressed me, though, was how Aoi really thought about the situation from Kio’s perspective.
“If Kio’s emotions get all mixed up, clouding his judgment and actions, and he gets hurt, then what are you going to do?” she asked Manami (15:49).
That was the question, wasn’t it? Aoi loves Kio, and she wants to tell him someday. But she knows that today is not a good day. Because, you know, impending death and all. Not only that, but I thought Aoi thinking of Kio like that was very romantic. She put his concerns first. That’s a way to demonstrate caring, right?
What did you think of Antonio just deciding she’d buy a rocket for Eris? What were your favorite moments? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
