    Makoto Shinkai: A Cat's Life
    Makoto Shinkai in a nutshell:
    Step 1- Paint an idealized picture of the world
    Step 2- Focus on one relationship to the exclusion of everything else, reducing most other things to a childlike simplicity
    Step 3 - Tear viewer's heart out when relationship is destroyed or strained by the world.

    This applies to almost every Makoto Shinkai work I have ever seen. Using beautiful stills and ...

    Uninhibited Intimacy
    She and Her Cat -Everything Flows- quietly proclaims what every pet owner already knows--that there exists an intuitive emotional bond between person and pet. And this is truly an amazing realization, especially in that both people and animals are so instinctively territorial. The implication is that not only do we consider pets to be part of our families, but that they also share that ...

    Sad, but beautiful...
    This has to be both the saddest and most beautiful thing I have seen in years; a real tear jerker. Everything from the concept, the storyboard, the animation and the dialogue was beautifully done and aimed at opening the viewer's eyes to the simple things at life that should be treasured more. Short and sweet to the point it was almost too short, and it left you sobbing into your pillow and ...

    A Deceptively Simple Anime.
    I went into She and Her Cat -Everything Flows- without having seen the work it is based on. The beautiful cover art and the description of the story instantly made me expect some light entertainment, a "slice of life" series full of silly humor and sturdy plot lines.

    Instead, I was offered one of the most profoundly emotional experienced I've ever had with an anime series. It touches ...

    the most beautiful short
    It's very Ghibli-esque in it's approach to anime as art, capturing basic and natural bonds of affection in the most vivid way. The animation can be simple because the message it conveys with warm hues of love is enough to touch you at the very core. As everyone with a pet (or any relationship at all) knows, the years between you foster an unspoken comfortability and affinity that is personal on ...

    Right in the feels...
    For having just four episodes that clock in for a total running time of just under a half hour you wouldn't think that She and Her Cat -Everything Flows- could really pack such a powerful emotional punch as it does.

    The show's strength is that the story doesn't try to tell you all the details. Rather much of the background information is inferred. The writer gives you just enough ...

    A Review From the Perspective of a Person Without Pets (FULL REVIEW)
    I'm not going to lie, this is an entertaining series. As a person who doesn't own pets, it's refreshing to see what it's like to own pets from a new perspective. She and Her Cat is one of those short anime that has an 8 minute run time and uses those 8 minutes per episode to their fullest. Let's get into the meat of this review though.

    STORY

    Simple concept. A college ...

    Thru a cat's eye lens
    The first episode is a charming and insightful view of the internal and external struggles of a young person viewed from the perspective of her cat. The cat makes an interesting spectator/reporter: on the one hand adoring of his human and on the other a witness to her undisguised experiences and adventure. This unusual perspective feels magical, creating an instant bond with She and Her Cat.

    Best Short Anime I've Seen
    This series, of all the anime I've watched, is probably most worth watching. Not just because it's good, but because it's so short. It manages to pack as much feeling into a total run time of around 30 minutes as many anime series barely manage in two seasons. I'm not even a cat person and I recommend this show. Well worth the watch. Worst case is you lose 30 minutes of time.

    A tear-jerker with a realistic cat.
    I feel like it's so hard to find any kind of media with accurate portrayals of cats and this is one of the few that does it. It's also a great emotional series that only stayed for as long as it needed and ended beautifully. One of the very few series that made me cry real tears too. I highly recommend anyone should watch this.
