Staff Reviews

She and Her Cat is the epitome of slice of life manga. The reader follows a very unexpected story about love and companionship told from the point of view of Chobi, the cat, as he watches his owner, Miyu, struggle through the pitfalls of young-adulthood. This is a very tender way to explore what our pets think about us when we're going through the motions of daily life. If you're looking for a main character moment, read this on your train home and you might shed a few tears.

Time drifts slowly for Miyu and her cat, but the harsh realities of the world soon catch up...
