Synopsis[edit]

Set in a futuristic-medieval world, Battle Kitty follows the adventures of an adorable yet feisty kitten named Kitty, using magical bows instead of swords or axes, who along with his friend Orc, embarks on a quest to become a great champion, by training to become a warrior, defeating all the monsters on Battle Island, and collecting their coveted keys. The duo face many obstacles and naysayers on their path to championhood, only to discover a surprise waiting in store for them at the Ancient Ruins.[5]
