Chi’s Sweet Home Volume Six is a manga by Kanata Konami, and it was published in North America by Vertical, Inc. in 2011. Chi’s Sweet Home is “flipped,” which means that it reads more like an American book than a traditional Japanese manga. Another unusual aspect about this series is the fact that all of the pages are in color; typically, manga will either be all black and white, or only have a few color pages mixed in with the black and white ones. I don’t see a rating printed anywhere on this volume, but I would personally recommend Chi’s Sweet Home for all ages.
This manga series is about a kitten named Chi; she had become separated from her mother, and was found and taken in by a family with a young son named Yohei. The family’s life has changed since taking in Chi, and Chi is still young enough that she’s still learning about the world.
There’s one word that best describes how Chi behaves in this volume: mischievous. It’s not that Chi is causing problems on purpose, but her innate curiosity causes her to get into one situation after another. She gets muddy pawprints all over the floor; she thinks her family is hoarding things but they’re really trying to protect Chi from danger; she gets into Yohei’s birthday present and birthday cake before Yohei can get to them; and she causes objects belonging to Yohei’s dad to roll down the stairs because Chi wants to see them move.
Also in this volume, while Chi is spending time and exploring in the nearby park, she meets another small cat. This little cat tries to act tough and really doesn’t want to spend time with Chi, but Chi manages to indirectly make this new cat play with her. Unfortunately, this cat’s name is not given in this volume.
