Itou Junji no Neko Nikki: Yon & Mu

Okay, so everyone who heard that I was reading horror manga in prep for WorldCON said, “You’ve GOT to read Junji Itou!”  So I went looking… and stumbled across this ADORABLE gem: Itou Junji no Neko Nikki: Yon & Mu.






This is NOT a horror manga.  You can tell it’s written by a horror mangaka, but it’s incredibly sweet and funny in the vein of Chi’s Sweet Home.  It’s also one volume, 10 chapters long and I think it took me ten minutes to read.  If you are a cat lover, you will adore this.


The cat art is adorable.  Plus, if you’ve ever been jealous of a cat’s affection, accidentally picked up something you thought was a cat toy but wasn’t, or lost sleep worrying about a cat who was either lost or at the vet the story lines are very relatable.

Not scary.

Cute as hell.

I’m totally bringing it up on the panel though, because I feel like if you’re a fan of his horror stuff you should read his cat diaries!
