On his way home from his part-time job, Yuuya Amane finds two small cute creatures in a box looking for an owner. These said creatures are called "Nukos"—cats that have evolved with qualities closer to those of humans. As a result, they can speak words and feel human emotions while not straying too far from their catlike instincts. Curious about their nature and at the same time drawn to them, Yuuya assumes ownership of the two Nukos and offers his house as a place for them to stay.

Adorable and heartwarming, Nukozuke! depicts the everyday life of Yuuya and his two Nukos: Kei, a calico Nuko who acts mature despite often being mistaken for a girl, and Sasame, a black Nuko who is the younger of the two.

tl:dr at bottom

This was a lot cuter than I expected it to be

The story follows a freeter (pretty much a guy who only works part-time jobs) that picks up two cat/human hybrids called nukos and raises them. The entire manga is just about their antics together (sometimes with a few side characters) and shows how cute and adorable the nukos are and how much the MC loves them. So there's not really a plot to be found here, although there are a few chapters that follow certain storylines to give more info about the main characters and their backstories.

The characters aren't very original to be ...

To start with, my dear friend recommended this to me and I am grateful to her because this is one of the best manga that I have read. Why I said so?

It is because......
1. I love animals
2. I like the way it is drawn
3. It offers unlimited cuteness and enjoyment
4. I really do love how the characters are presented
5. I love how the author connect the story and the characters
6. The nukos are so Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!
7. I do admire the atmosphere and genre of the manga

I'm going to keep this short, and by short, I mean ultra short:

This manga is, in my (most probably biased) opinion, probably the best manga I've read. I liked it so much that it's the first manga/anime that I actually bothered to even write a review for. Being as vague/as "non-spoily" as possible, the comedy, window into daily life, cuteness, and "feels-y-ness" all combine together to form a masterful piece of art.

Extra info:

One of the reasons I liked it so much probably has to do with the whole perspective/relatability of the title. Amane Yuuya is 20 years old, and personally, I'm not that much younger ...
