his blushing bride-to-be has some unexpected company in tow - Yon, a ghastly-looking family cat, and Mu an adorable Norwegian forest cat. Reviewers enjoyed the narrative as a lighthearted window into pet caretaking, where the humor derived from the caretaker's response to the cats, rather than the cats' behavior.

Of course the cat needs a friend so they get a second cat and Ito does not think it has an accursed face and wants to love it more than the first one. First there’s Mu a kitten who seems harmless enough, perhaps even cute, but then Mu is joined by A-ko’s full-grown cat Yon. Little did he know his blushing bride-to-be has some unexpected company in tow-Yon, a ghastly-looking family cat, and Mu, an adorable Norwegian forest cat.You see Ito is a Horror Artist, and I use capital letters there because he takes it a step beyond what most can pull off. Children's librarian Marissa Lieberman wrote that, because of the overlap in the importance of narrative pacing and timing in both comedy and horror, Ito's previous work in horror and gag manga helped to make Junji Ito's Cat Diary unique among other cat-centered manga.

Horror comics author Junji Ito has recently purchased a new house and has decided to invite his girlfriend to move in with him. That said, people who are into his sort of horror might not like that when all is said and done, he just wrote a cute little book about his cats. Junji Ito, as J-kun, has recently built a new house and has invited his fiancée, A-ko, to live with him. J-kun is instantly terrified by Yon’s ‘accursed face’ and evil glare, fascinated by the possible significance of the sinister, skull-like markings on Yon’s back. He is not the sort of manga creator I can recommend to most of my friends, as I genuinely think his work often goes a step beyond uncomfortable (though if you do like horror, check him out.But slowly the cats start to exert their charm on J-kun who becomes obsessed with winning them over - bombarding them with tasty treats, taunting them with fluffy, cat wands - determined to rank first in their affections.
