This OVA, though barely five minutes long, has more emotional depth and impact than many longer anime.

The animation is, simply put, incredible. Beautifully drawn black and white scenes that are contrasted against detailed backgrounds - this could even remind someone of an old live-action film (as improbable as that sounds, just watch it yourself). Everything looks incredibly realistic except for the cat, but it was purposefully drawn in a simplistic way to put emphasis on its persona and plight.

There was very little music that I can remember but I liked the cat's calm, quiet, maybe even melancholy, voice. Although the main character is a read more

She and Her Cat is told from the perspective of Chobi; a cat that was recently adopted by She, an unnamed girl. Chobi is quite a philosophical little cat but his observations don't go past of what a regular cat might think. He notes how the girl cries, but does not wonder why, only that She is perfect and must not be at fault. He notes that She leaves during the day, but does not wonder where, only that the scent of the outside world comes through the door each time. He just knows that they are together, and that's all that there needs to read more

She and Her Cat is the first film from director Makoto Shinkai (5 Centimeters Per Second, Garden of Words). At just under 5 minutes, there’s no plot to speak of, just the musings of Chobi the cat as the seasons pass and his bond with his owner grows. Chobi is a pretty deep cat, dwelling on topics such as love, existence, the limits of his perspective, and his unshakeable faith in the girl’s goodness. He reminded me of Henri the Existential Cat.

Shinkai’s concept is clever, and for anyone who has ever owned a cat, it can be touching. As a cat lover, though, I expected read more

"Their Standing Points."

Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko.
A short, cramped, minimalistic tale compacted in a 5min OVA.
A lovely, unique, emotion-packed tale expressed at its best in a 5min OVA.

Everything always has two points of view.
Every point of view has a different interpretation.
The everyday life of the Girl and her Cat.
The everyday life of Chobi -the Cat- and its owner.

Shinkai builds this short movie -this long poem- with the same elements old-school cinema were made. Before all the advances in CGI and other technologies, when few scenes and no dialogue were needed in order to make children happy and adults believe in fantasy again.

Anime: Chi's Sweet Home
They're both anime about cats. Although She and Her Cat is somewhat 'dark' compaired to the light heartedness of Chi's , I found them cute anime. She and Her Cat is an OVA while Chi's Sweet Home is a series. Must watch!

Anime: Tsumiki no Ie
Without any narration of the character the anime is about, these two animes manage to be truly beautiful.

Anime: Egao
A girl adopts a cat. Both anime are short masterpieces. 
reportRecommended by RottenStrawberry
Anime: Nekojiru-sou
Short animations with cats as protagonists. Both are psychological but Nekojiru has "dementia" while Her Cat is more realistic.
