Pop Team Epic Creator's Cat Hijinks Manga Gets 1st Volume
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Pop Team Epic creator Bkub Okawa returned from his short-lived Twitter ban in time for the release of his newest comic, Konya wa Neko-chan. The manga's first volume, with an anime-eyed cat on the cover front and center, was released on Friday.
Konya wa Neko-chan is a four-panel comic starring a variety of felines from strong-spirited kitties to selfish and even angry cats. The wrap around band of the first volume includes comments by Honey & Clover and March comes in like a lion manga creator Chika Umino's beloved cat Bun-chan.
Konya wa Neko-chan is serialized in Kodansha's Morning Two magazine and on the magazine's official website. Okawa launched the series in February 2017.
Cats seem like a favored pet for manga creators and a few have dedicated their time and ink to talk about them. Morning Two magazine released a cat-centric issue last year as did Big Comic Spirits. Cat characters even have their own magazine, Nyankomedia. If you're looking for cat manga available in English, you can check out She and Her Cat based on the work by Makoto Shinkai, Kanata Konami's Chi's Sweet Home and FukuFuku: Kitten Tales, or Junji Ito's Cat Diary: Yon & Mu..
