Anime Review: My Roommate is a Cat

Where do I start with this anime? I don’t think there are adequate words in the English language to properly convey the love I have for this series. It is a feels train from start to finish, and I highly recommend everyone take that journey.

This anime follows our main character, Tsubaru, as he explores what it means to make connections with others, interact in the real world, and otherwise be a part of society. After being alone for a long time and locked in his own little world as a writer, this is a bit of a struggle for him. In addition to following Tsubaru, we also follow Haru, the kitty that he took in by chance. Unique to this anime, we get to see the story from both Tsubaru and Haru’s perspective. Usually, Haru’s perspective is totally off-the-wall, but you can see it since she is a cat. It really adds a wonderful touch of fun to the anime.

It’s only a single season (for now, they could release more) spanning 12 episodes, so it’s a very easy watch. Since it’s relatively episodic, it’s also easy to watch a little bit here and there if you’re tight on time. Falling into the slice of life and comedy categories, you will definitely laugh, cry, and feel as awkward as Tsubaru in some situations as you watch. They’re all worth it though, because the story is just that stinkin’ cute!

Did I mention it’s a feels train and you’ll cry? Honestly many of the moments are just so touching that I don’t know how someone would get through this without at least tearing up a little. It’s just so adorable, and so very good!

Don’t worry though, all’s well that end’s well in this anime. It might be a feels train, but it’s a good feels train. So hop on board and give it a watch! You won’t regret it.

Presently (at the time of writing this) it appears to be available on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
