    The story of Mikazuki Subaru, a novelist who is shy and struggles in relationships with other people, and a cat who was dumped by humans and lived a tough life on the streets. Through a twist of fate, the two of them end up living together. This heartwarming tale illustrates day-to-day life through the eyes of both man and cat. These moments seem trivial, but as they build upon themselves, the two become family and find happiness in their life together

    I loved the anime of this and really want to read the original manga. It’s a slice of life about a shy, introverted man who finds a stray cat, and it’s got both human and cat perspective. The show has real character development, both for the human and the cat, and has surprising depth as well as being really funny at times. And cute. I started watching it for the cuteness, but I continued because it’s also moving.

    According to ANN, this has been licensed by Lezhin Comics, and I found it on their site. Shame it’s not from here, but at least we can read it in English now.
