A Man and His Cat 1
A Man and His Cat 1 | Umi Sakurai
17 posts | 26 read | 14 to read
The top manga launch in Japan in the first half of 2018, A Man and His Cat was also voted one of the top ten manga of 2018 by Japanese bookstore employees nationwide. Having won hearts and topped charts in Japan, this hotly anticipated series about an older gentleman and his unique, adorable cat is available in English for the first time! In the pet shop he calls home, a chubby, homely cat whiles away the hours listening to coos of delight from potential pet parents...but he knows it's not him they're fussing over. Even as his price drops with each passing day, no one spares the kitty a glance. Having all but given up on life, the feline dejectedly awaits his first birthday, when he'll officially be past his sell-by date. So when an older gentleman comes into the shop and wants to take him home, the kitten himself is most shocked of all! Will the man and the cat find what they're looking for...in each other?

The first story about a man that buys and older cat that‘s also seen as ugly. The story is cute, but will see if I continue

This is the first volume of a manga series about an older man, recently bereaved, who adopts a cat that no one else seems to want. The story is totally charming and Fukumaru the cat is adorable!

Thank you to @jdiehr for posting about iyashikei manga,which portrays characters living out peaceful lives in calming environments.Example-this tender story about the shelter cat that no one wanted and the man who was looking for love will warm your heart. The experience of reading it also was new for me. Starting from the Western back of the book and reading from the page on the right to the left side. A must for all the Litsy cat lovers! 😻

jdiehr 😻 I'm so glad you liked it! 8mo

When I read an article about iyashikei manga (a genre that portrays characters living out peaceful lives in calming environments), I decided to finally give manga a try.

You guys.

This was beautiful.

An aging cat watches all the surrounding cats get adopted around him while his price keeps dropping and no one chooses him.

Until one day...

I teared up very early on and plan to continue this series.

Who would have thought??

CBee Goodness, these look like something I‘d enjoy 💚 9mo
DivineDiana This looks wonderful. ❤️ 9mo
jdiehr @CBee I highly recommend giving it a try! 9mo

OMG. Think the movie “Up” and add a kitty! This was so sweet. And made me tear up a time or two. Seriously, this is a perfect love note to pet owners everywhere.

A charming story about an unwanted cat at the pet store, who‘s finally bought by an older man, a widower. He‘s never owned a cat before, and the cat has never had an owner before, so they‘re both new to this. Love how Kanda and Fukumaru just adore each other. And we get to hear Fukumaru‘s very cute thoughts, “all I wanted was for someone to look meowy way”.

A truly heartwarming story about relationship between a man and his cat.

I adore this manga series. There is some heartbreak and drama but love is at the heart of this story. It is so soft and joyful and full of love for cats, friendship, and music. What's not to love? This series is still ongoing but I recommend it.
