5.0 out of 5 stars Chi's Sweet Home, Vol. 5, 2 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a fan of this series as a whole and brought this volume to fill a gap in my collection.

If you are new to the Chi books I'd obvious recommend starting from the beginning - the series is a brilliant 'slice of life' style tale from the eyes of a young kitten seperated from her family. The stories are very sweet, the art has been loving produced using traditional water-colours and the limited text makes these books charming for both children and adults a-like.

On the other hand, if you are a returning fan wondering why you should buy this volume in particular well it definitely contains a pivotal moment in the Chi series. Without spoiling too much, Chi is reunited with a character previously thought to be gone from the series and that moment in particular was touching enough to make the book worthwhile.

A really enjoyable read overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary New World, 1 Feb 2014
More of the same and that's a good thing. The quality of this series continues and expectations are met. Chis is still getting used to her new home and now she ventures off out into the world from this new home for the first time. Rather than cute, funny episodes; this time Chi has some shocks, scares and wonders at new unusual things as she gets used to the world around her. Not laugh out loud funny this time but more endearing as we react to Chi's feline nature and reactions to the human world. I'm also enjoying the peak inside daily Japanese family life as well. Chi gets to know new friends better and meets up with an old one. Lovely, series that will surely last as a classic.

Chi's Sweet Home is a brilliant series of books that I first discovered while in Japan! I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes funny manga stories like Yotsuba! or Azumanga Daioh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tabby Travels, 23 Oct 2011
"For outdoors felines, the world beyond their home is at their paw-tips. But with a little bit of cat instinct and ingenuity, any tabby can conquer a yard, alley, or even a small community with ease. And the most ambitious of kitties start young. Chi has the potential to be a wonderful shorthair. If this little one can just keep her whiskers out of trouble, she should make mama proud."

Additional Information:
Playing with a haughty neighbour cat, sneaking into daddy's office, and learning (forced) to use a cat flap. All in a day's work for Japan's cutest manga kitten. The antics Chi gets up to remind me of my own cats when they were kittens- and also makes me thankful at times that they weren't quite that mischievous. As cat owners and lovers will know, cats never get boring- they are always up to something. This fact, coupled with the number of friends Chi meets in this volume just shows how much room this manga has to grow and continue. One minute you are crying for the poor orphan, and the next laughing at her as she approaches something new with her feisty curiosity. Another delight is seeing how she mixes with the humans, aka her family, and in particular young Yohei. At times Chi's learning and innocence mirrors his, and vice versa. Kanata has a brilliant way of making every character, cat and human alike, unique and charming.

This books is suitable for all ages, still in full colour, and still one of the best manga I have read. Make sure you purr-chase one for yourself- I highly doubt you'll regret it.
