Transferring often, Mikiko "Mikki" Amane maintains an aloof and detached attitude at each new school. However, she is thrown for a loop when she sets eyes on her classmate Nekota. He has the face of a cat! No matter what angle it's viewed from, or how hard it's tugged on, his head looks like a mascot. To make matters worse, Mikki seems to be the only one who finds this strange.
With her interest piqued, Mikki unravels the mystery behind the cat-faced Nekota, and why only she sees him this way. There is no better way to get close and investigate than to befriend him. For once, the usually indifferent transfer student might just have to make some friends!

It's an innocent and refreshing story of childhood friendship, add the whole Nekota's-face-is-a-cat thing and it becomes really interesting. I also like how they don't go too fast to romance, considering that they are in elementary school, so far it's a PG story I would recommend to any age.
This anime is so cute! The story is unique as well. You will never think the main character of the story sees a cat for a human. It's totally out of imagination. The art style is very well drawn. Even though 49 chapters may seem a lot, it's worth it. The ending is sooo worth the wait. When you read the manga, you want to keep on reading. The author has a wild imagination that we may never know what happens next. This manga, specifically, is soo innocent. Like it gives you that elementary school vibe. However, even though it does feel elementary school the
story line is too good to just abandon the manga because of its vibe.
I love this story! It's so fresh and original for an elementary school setting shoujo manga. The mood, in a way, is reminiscent of CCS and Kodocha for me. Feel-good, sweet, innocent elementary school romance. And I love how the mangaka decided to tease the readers that Mikiko isn't the only one who sees Nekota with a cat's head. It really does make us curious about Nekota and how we can't help ourselves but be curious. Looking forward more updates (and hopefully this gets licensed so I can get my own copies).
I do hope that before the end of the series that somewhere, in some
point, probably close to the ending, that we would finally see how Nekota really looks like as a normal human being. Even then, just the mystery of Mikiko being the only one seeing Nekota with a cat's head really does makes us curious even more.
