  • Just watch Barakamon
    Did you watch Barakamon? No? Well there you go, if you aren't completely sold on the cat side-story gimmick alone than I guarantee Barakamon is what you were looking for in this anime but better.

    Starving loner artist finds a spunky young female friend to help him climb out of his shell and become a more compassionate, social person with close friends he can truly appreciate.

    Same premise, ...

  • New way of story telling
    I loved this anime and of course want more. I thought it might get annoying watching the same scenes from two points of view, but thankfully it never happened. Both human and cat characters feel pretty realistic with the issues and struggles they have, more Subaru than Haru though. I would love for this series to continue.

  • The Sweetest Anime of the Season
    Wow. It is a anime that will make you cry and laugh with an interesting story, lovable characters and beautiful animation. It had a unique view with half an episode being from Subaru's (the human) perspective and half being Haru's perspective (the cat). I could relate as a cat owner and Haru reminded me of my cats but I don't think you need to like cats or be a cat owner to get how Haru feels. The ...

  • Genuine is the best way to describe it.
    I mostly just watch "Slice of Life" anime and this is the best thing I've seen on this website. This show is better than most things I've ever watched. It's cute and heartwarming. It doesn't shy away from real feelings and Subaru is really dealing with some very complex emotions. By the end of the third episode you start to understand why he is the way he is and in following episodes you ...

  • I wish my roomate was a cat too.
    I'm fascinated how much this touched my heart and how wholesome and cute it is. I thought this was some anime I wouldn't be interested in as this blew me away. I'd say you should watch this, it's amazing, next level ( in my opinion ) and I can't really explain it.
    10/10

  • Purfect for Pet Owners
    I think this show is a true representation of the iyashikei genre. You see Subaru slowing come out of his shell, opening up to people, and in some was truly start to live his life to it's fullness, all because he has something to care about, Haru. It's a wonderful anime because it's helps show you how your pets effect your life. I also enjoy the Haru's perspective because a lot people believe cats ...

  • Worth watching for people who like or don't like cats
    Great change of perspective between him and the cat with interesting explanations for some of their behavior. It was an emotional journey of how a pet can change a person's life for the better with the right amount of comedy mixed in. It would be nice to see another season.

  • It's just so heartwarming and I never knew I needed it in my life.
    It's so wholesome and pure and legitimately can't stop myself from smiling every time I watch it. Seeing both Subaru and Haru grow in their own ways thanks to their relationship has made this one of my all-time favorites because it doesn't need high-octane action or top notch animation to achieve significant character grownth. Additionally, spending the second half of each episode seeing things ...

  • Wholesome, Touching, and Adorable
    I found this anime to be very refreshing! We see things from both the cat and owner's point of view. The owner's character develops well over the season with the help of his cat as a pet and inspiration for his new novel. He's a relate-able introvert and has sad moments when he thinks about his deceased parents. The sad elements of the show never becomes overwhelming or too much. I'm thankful for ...
