I haven't had a chance to watch this yet, but I probably will before the weekend is over. I don't really like cats and the whole cat perspective on things doesn't especially charm me, but that won't entirely prevent me from enjoying it probably.


(Since folks are already posting about the episodes here and a new thread hasn't been started, and since there will be just a few episodes, I'm going ahead and naming this as the "Discussion" thread and will add it to my Show Thread index. Sorry for the delay in doing so. Last couple of days have been pretty brutal and sucking my time away from CR!)

Episode 2

Daru thinks alike with his owner as the two enjoy the sunset. And then it tells the story of how the two met. She sure did have a huge hole in her heart. The two didn't get along initially seeing that Daru was nearly abandoned, but in the end the two got along, connected by hunger, but living in separate times. That was quite a nice story there seeing that it was tough getting along, but ultimately the hole in her heart was filled.

Ep 2

Aww, so Daru helps her to meet her first friend. Even though she seemed upset at having a cat to begin with she definitely warmed up to it by the end. With the narration you can tell that cats don't always understand people, and they don't need to in order to improve their lives.



Oh, and the way Daru eats (getting food all over the place) is realistic too.

I really like the portrayal of Daru's role in this series. It's cat but he displays human behavior and really feels a connection with his owner.

Another good episode, loved the atmospheric setting of the story.

Episode 2

What a calming and beautiful show. The warm colors in this episode were so nice!
Daru really changed his owner's lonely life just by being with her. It broke my heart that he didn't realize she was going to abandon him, but I'm happy she went back for him.

Episode 2: She and Her Sky

Nice episode again, a back story episode where they first met and how their relationship got off to a rocky start. But in the end things ended up turning out for the better for both. Glad they started to understand each other.

Makoto Shinkai (Shinkai Makoto) back at it again with a shotgun blast straight to the feels from the get-go. Everything done by him and his company is just purely beautiful, IMO. I swear that he could have a story about a rock and make you feel like you got hit by a truck of emotions. I think I'll be ruined if something happens to Daru by the end of it. In the original short film I think it ended fine, but this seems to be an entirely new story compared to She and Her Cat (1999).

EDIT:
Or wait, after rereading the anime news network information on it, Makoto Shinkai isn't the person directing this. It's Kazuya Sakamoto. No wonder the Clannad vibe I got from the first minute of episode one was so strong. So a story based on one done by someone who is already good at the strong feels, directed by someone who lives to take a knife to the feels. Yep, this is going to end as a tearjerker I think.

Episode 3

Daru is getting old, while it's getting cold outside. He used to have a loving family, but everybody ran off never to see each other again. Even though things have changed, his memories are still the same. Now, life is getting in the way and Daru is spending less time with her owner. Growing up sure is tough on a cat, and even tougher on the owner. That was so full of feels there. One more episode left to go.

She and Her Cat -Everything Flows EP 3 [She and the Look in Her Eyes]

How both Daru's and She Life kinda intersect with their moms.

BTW She and her mom's name are not revealed .

As Daru is getting older he shows how things are changing maybe not for the best.He relects back on his mom how she protected him and his siblings but looked like a tragic ending.

She and mom both love each other are close but is causing a rift where she moved out is struggling to make ends meet thus even spending lees time with Daru who she cared a lot about. She doesnt want to admit problems to her mom and wont go to her wedding ?( I think it is her mom's )

A sad part Daru wants to climb up on the bed to be by her but cant. I dont know if she notices he is very old I dont want to go beyond that!

I was starting to suspect this after the second episode, but after this episode I'm almost certain......Daru's gonna die next episode, isn't he?

They mentioned him being old before, but this episode they really focused on that aspect to him, and they have shown both his first meeting his owner, and his literal origin story, so essentially showing the start of his tale, why not go the distance and show the end of it as well?

It could be even worse than that, really. She is also being shown to be at the end of her rope, not being able to find a job, not wanting to go back to her clinging mother, not feeling strong enough to be able to go to the wedding of her former roommate and friend.
