If you want anime recommendations for the cat lover in you, here are a few!
- She and Her Cat
It is an anime of only 4 short episodes that tell the relationship between a girl and her old cat from the first day she adopts him. How she relates to him, how they get to know each other and how they have to take care of each other. The entire anime is narrated from the cat’s perspective.
This anime by Makoto Shinkai is one of my favorites in his catalog of works. He knows how to tell a personal story in as little as twenty minutes of scenes.
This is one of his most personal and different works. In just 5 minutes it can evoke an atmosphere of tranquillity, sadness, melancholy, excitement and hope. If you have cats or want to adopt one, watch this anime.
- Chii’s Sweet Adventure
This is an anime that tells the life of the kitten Chii who is taken in by the Yamada family after losing her mother. Each chapter is self-concluding and with no other pretensions than to show us a pleasant story of a sweet kitten and her adoptive family.
A very beautiful process that goes on stage is that of adaptation: At first, Chii resists living with the Yamada family and will find a way to find her mother. But, eventually, she learns to live with this family, with their customs and with their affection.
If you want to have a nice time, you can watch this series. Leave an episode in the middle and come back later. It is not a complicated anime, nor does it seek to be.
This is one of the most adorable anime you can watch with the best storyline of all: Bananas hide a secret. When no one is looking at them, cute kittens come out of them that walk and play around the house. That’s what the series is about and it’s perfect how it is.
Despite its incredible premise, it only consists of 13 3-minute episodes (2 if we don’t count the ending). Each of them have small capsules where we see how the bananya interact, have fun and play with the world around them.
His anecdotes and adventures range from learning how to open a refrigerator to how to watch television. If you are having a bad day, you need to watch this anime.
- My Roommate is a Cat
It is an anime that tells us about the relationship between Subaru Mikazuki, a novelist who has a hard time relating to other people and a small abandoned cat that he finds on the street. We know both sides of the coin in this anime: Half of the episode is told from the human’s perspective and the other half from the cat’s.
Thus, we will see how they will forge a friendship and end up living together. If you have ever wanted to adopt a cat, this anime will make you smile for sure. Minatsuki’s manga adaptation knows how to approach small scenes to move us. How to receive your first meal can determine the path your friendship will take, as well as the misunderstandings that may arise due to the lack of experience of both.
