Cat Manga Chi's Sweet Home to Resume on April 9
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 18th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Morning magazine is announcing on Thursday that Kanata Konami is resuming her Chi's Sweet Home manga in the next issue on April 9. The next new weekly chapter will feature a color opening page.
The magazine had announced last July that the weekly manga would go on hiatus until this spring. It had explained that Konami was conducting research for the manga.
Chi's Sweet Home centers around a kitten who gets lost after walking out into the real world for the first time. A boy named Yōhei Yamada discovers her, but the Yamada family's apartment building prohibits pets. After failing to find a new home, the Yamadas decide to defy the rules and raise Chi themselves. Most of Chi's coming-of-age stories revolve around the Yamadas or the cats, dogs, and the occasional rabbit that live in the neighborhood.
Vertical licensed Chi's Sweet Home in 2009, and the company will release the 12th manga volume on August 18.
The manga inspired two television anime series in 2008 and 2009. Crunchyroll streamed the second television anime series Chi's New Address in various countries as it aired in Japan.
