I found this manga a couple months ago, but I don't remember the name of it and I can't find it again. As far as I can remember it has mostly, if not all, male characters and they live in a woodsy area and possibly run a cafe. The big mystery is that some of the male characters involuntarily turn into animals. A different animal every night at sunset. While there are two older characters that have the same curse and are the father's of the two main men. However these father's are stuck as the last animals they turned into. One is a dog that lives with the boys and the other is a killer whale that lives in a bathtub that connects to the ocean. The orca guy is the president or something of a high security company and his son had run away from his responsibilities and his home, which brought him to the other guys in the forest. I know how crazy it sounds, I have even thought I dreamt it up, but manga usually lack realistic scenarios. I appreciate the help. Also I don't think it is Fruits Basket.

Definitely not Fruit Basket - the animals in that series were from the eastern zodiac and I have never heard of anyone born under the sign of the killer whale.

I looked and looked and looked and the only thing I found even close was...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oumagadoki_Zoo

I know it's probably not this but will post it just in case. I'll keep looking though.

Yvw, I haven't given up I'm still looking. A few questions I almost forgot to ask that may narrow things down...

1. Do they turn into depictions of real animals or of animal people (furries)?
2. Is the art-style cute or serious?
3. Would you know if it's an older manga or a more recent one?
4. Do you remember the names of any of the characters?

I thought searching for a killer whale would narrow down the search but not in the slightest .

Real animals not furries. The dads can speak.
I think the art style is more serious has a lot of humor though.
I think it is more recent.
I don't remember any names except the the dog might have been Shin. Don't take my word on that, I've looked that up too and... apparently there are a lot of manga dogs named Shin.

It's gotta be the equivalent to Spot, Rex or King over here . Okay now I got the picture in my mind of exactly what I'm looking for *crosses fingers*.

I finally found it again!
It was so stupid for me to forget too. It's by the same author that did one of my favorites. I had finished that manga so I didn't remember the author either.
The manga I was reading was called "Asterisk", it was done in 2006.
The manga I have been looking for is called "Moon Trick".
Both are by Morimoto Shuu.
Also it was done further back than I thought. 2010 to be exact and as far as I know it is still ongoing.
Thanks to everyone who wanted to help out~!
