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.
Can I state for the record that I love the timing of that opening song.
We at a funeral, everyone is very sad.
^-^ Happy music time; Doop pa dooby doody!!!
This anime is about the writer and his cat. It’s kind of like dog and scissors, but without the violence.
I know that anime is telling me that he is a good writer, but is he? Taking one month to write one chapter? Not wanting reference material? Only caring about the ending and not the way/how it’s written? He kind of comes off a little useless, how the hell does this guy have an agent…or is he truly that close to his publishing house. Give me a feel anime, is he a mega popular writer or your everyday writer (you can’t treat them the same).
I don’t like people, but I understand people need to do there jobs. How the hell has he been advertising his books, getting them checked or even pitched in the first place if he hates people that much.
Plus wouldn’t a publisher care more about how many pagers are done in the current manuscript over how many chapters there are? They only care about the complete manuscript, why would they care so much about this one guys ability to write 20 page in a 300-400 page book in one month? “You know what will happen if he doesn’t hit his deadline” fire his ass!
When I was doing my art course are tutor told us 3 important truths you should always remember:
It’s very easy to forget to these things when your are focused on a project (even if you need to set alarm clocks for it, DO IT!).
One day, ONE DAY! You got sick from exhaustion, from one day. Y-o How does this guy have a writing job? How could he be a popular writer and only now face this basic mistake (not pacing yourself).
Plus why would you give your publisher an idea for a book that you have no idea how to write????
Final thoughts: I love the cat, but hate the writer.
If it was his was set up as his first book I would have been OK with him, but telling me he is popular and written before makes his mistakes nothing more than frustrating.
T-o Sorry guys, love the technical side of writing too much (even if I’m not disciplined enough to write myself).
