Chi's Sweet Home by Kanata Konami

One day while Chi was out with her mother and siblings, she wandered off and became lost.  She kept searching for her family, but was instead taken in by a young boy and his parents.  Since pets are not allowed at their apartment, the family tries to keep Chi indoors so no one will see her.  The family tries to find Chi a new home where she can wander, but end up keeping her.  The series follows the many adventures and misadventures of Chi.

Kanata Konami has created an absolutely adorable character in Chi. She has this smiling face and large eyes that draw you in.  While the storyline is rather simplistic, it is completely entertaining.  The art style captures the playfulness of Chi and perfectly expresses her emotions.  As an added bonus, Vertical continues to publish this series in color, which adds vitality to the panels.  This is definitely a series for all ages to enjoy and fall in love with.  Even if you don’t like cats, you will love Chi’s Sweet Home.

You can find the Chi’s Sweet Home manga by Kanata Konami on the VBPL Catalog.  If you enjoyed Chi’s Sweet Home, you may want to try Yotsuba&! by Kiyohiko Azuma or Happy Happy Clover by Sayuri Tatsuyama.
