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.

The story was unique for me. It was told continuously, with a few flashbacks here and there, but they didn't add confusion to the story. It didn't feel rushed for me because you can slowly see the growth of the characters as you continue with the story. It wasn't necessarily too simple or too complicated. You can understand everything and yet still be enthralled by the story. I stumbled upon this manga while looking for good mystery manga to read. Although it's mostly comedy, romance, and school life, the mystery of as to why only Amane sees Nekota's head as a cat head keeps you read more

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 read more

What do you get when you combine cotton candy and bubblegum with some comedy and a boy with a cat's head? Nekota no Koto ga Ki ni Natte Shikatanai of course!

*This is a spoiler free review*

This is a super cute comedy series centering around transfer student Mikki who tries to solve the mystery of Nekota's appearance and at the same time gets tangled up with the affairs of her other school mates as well. The story consists of two parts. The elementary school arc acts as an introduction to the cast and explores the concept of friendship in different ways. The second part starts when read more
