Manga Review – Chi’s Sweet Home

Chi’s Sweet Home by Kanata Konami


Review by Cyn C. (Cyn-Sama)


I’m a cat person.  Always have been, always will be.

So, I was predisposed to like this series going into it.  I just didn’t realize how adorable it would be.

The story is told from the point of view of Chi.  A newborn American shorthair cat.  She gets separated from her mother, only to be found by a caring family.

A caring family who’s apartment does not allow pets.  So, while Chi has found a home, she and her family might loose the home, if Chi is found out.

It’s a simple and sweet story.  What really makes it appealing is Chi’s point of view.  The artist managed to capture the very essence of what it is to be a cat, from sleeping in inappropriate places to traumatic trips to the vet.

The story is also something that can be enjoyed by all ages.  Manga isn’t something that’s just for adults, or just for children.  Yes, there are series that are absolutely not for children (and, that’s mainly what I read), there are great titles out there that will appeal to everyone.

Every time I read this series, I find myself utterly charmed by it, and giggling at the trouble that one little kitten can cause.  It’s obvious that the artist has cats, and is in love with them.

Each volume is a chance for me to escape reality for a short time and enjoy a slice of simple pleasures, and to take time to love on my own itty bitty kitty committee.
