Finally got to watch more of this show….and I feel conflicted.
Positive: I love the sections where you get to see the world from the cat’s view.
Negative: I can’t believe on any conceivable level that our main male lead is a writer.
“I haven’t used names in such a long time” . . . How do you write a book where no one is identified by name? I guess you could identify them by traits.
The neko detective despised the tall human getting in his way, for his long legs couldn’t compare to the kitties pouncing prowess.
I just can’t believe that a man who has no understand of people or how interaction works could conceivably write a story. This is a guy who is so closed to the world that he doesn’t know what a pet collar is! He didn’t even know that he lives next to a dog.
The dog was there before his parents died, so there is no excuse for him not knowing that.
My only guess to his mental state is that his parents were enabling this isolated behaviour, otherwise they would have forced him outside more (this guy doesn’t even go in the garden).
Here is something that bugged me:
“What a freak, he’s reading a book in a class room” yet no one bats an eye when he brings a book with him during PE (physical education).
I’m also not a fan of the way the anime transition from the human view to the cat view (it feels like I’m having to watch the same episode twice).
The dude comes-off like he is incapable of taking care of himself, and that ignoring his mistrust of people. When was the last time he took a bath, did laundry or clean anything in the house.
Simple tasks can be made more fun with a cat in the house.
I’m very much in a love hate relationship with this anime.
