A grey and white kitten with black stripes wanders away from her mother and siblings one day while enjoying a walk outside. Lost in her surroundings, the kitten struggles to find her family and instead is found by a young boy, Youhei, and his mother. They take the kitten home, but pets are not allowed in their housing complex, so they try to find a new home for the kitten. This proves to be difficult, and the family eventually decides to keep the kitten, naming her "Chi."

If you love cats like I do, then immediately stop reading this review and go watch. For the rest of you, proceed to the next paragraph.

Chi’s Sweet Home is like the Nintendo Wii of anime. Anyone of all ages can enjoy it: your sister will like it, your mom will like it, even your grandma will like it, if she’s into anime and is cool like that.

The story is pretty clear-cut. A cute kitten named Chi gets lost and separated from her mother, and a human family that lives nearby finds her and decides to adopt her. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the read more

Chi's Sweet Home has a pretty linear storyline: a kitty who lost her mom and now wanders on a journey to find her. She always thinks about her mother on her journey, and always has kind memories of her. So far I've seen there aren't so many obstacles in her way, nor any big trouble. This anime is to make you shout "KAWAII", it doesn't have a complicate plot.

The art is linear, clear and chibish for the most characters, Chi in the first place, but also humans; it fits well the kind of this show. Expressions are so funny, believe me they'll make you laugh read more

Story: It's pretty simple. A kitten gets lost from her mother, and then she gets adopted into a family. Basically the plot is simple for anyone to understand in a heartbeat.

Art: What I found interesting is that the animation company behind the anime was Madhouse(The company who also did Deathnote and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro), so I kinda expected some good clear movements and good artstyle. Which I did find and was happy for.

Sound: This is where I think CSH shines. Chi's voice is done by Satome Koorogi(Who has also done supporting roles like Menchi from Excel Saga and Nina from FMA) so I was read more

Chi's Sweet Home is not your typical run-of-the-mill anime. It is short and sweet.

There are about 104 episodes of pure love in the series, and even though the episodes are about 3 minutes long each in length, the series remains to be interesting with the short stories. Sometimes, it spans into a few episodes to create "story arcs" that equate to half a regular anime episode.

Chi's Sweet Home is about a little kitten named Chi (the circumstances of her naming is quite humorous), who gets lost from her mother, and is found by a family of 3. And that's when it all starts.

Since they are read more

Anime: Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki
Both are about a homeless cat who get's taken in by a family.
While Chi's Sweet Home is more concise and story-driven, Poyopoyo is a definitely a bit more ridiculous and all over the place.

Anime: Damekko Doubutsu
Comedic "children's" anime about animals, but Chi's Sweet Home deals with cats only. Both also have a very short episode length, although Chi's Sweet Home is about 2 1/2 times longer, overall. 
reportRecommended by Notaneko
Anime: Nyanpire The Animation
Both series are about kitties :3 
reportRecommended by Kuromii
Anime: Tottoko Hamtarou
The daily life and adventures of a pet. Hamtaro is aimed even more towards kids, as the anime gives these animals more personification than the animals of Sweet Home.

Anime: Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko
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!

Both sweet, low-key and about animals.
