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.

This will be a short review, because it's a short manga.

Nukoduke! starts off with the MC, Yuuya, finding two abandoned Nukos calling out for someone to take them. What is a Nuko, you ask? To put it simply, it's a species of cat that evolved to be more human-like.

Anyways, after a little bit of dialogue between them and some rain, Yuuya decides to take the two home with him.

The following chapters turn in to a slice-of-life comedy about Yuuya taking care of the Nukos, and the cute things the Nukos do. While the latter is typical in SoL comedies, the parts where Yuuya read more

For pet lovers and people who wants a change from the norm:

If you are looking for a manga about cute animal, Look no more. This is the manga for you.

Basically this manga is a Slice-of-life kind of manga in an alternate world where cats evolved into more human-like creatures. The concept of human-like cats will leave you wanting more or even wanting the actual thing.... like me.

When i talk about human-like, I dun mean human size kind but well.... read it, u wouldn't be disappointed at all

If you are ever frustrated, negative or emotional, read this manga. I can guarantee that it'll sooth your soul read more

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 read more
