Chi’s Sweet Home Volume Seven 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 is a manga series about a kitten named Chi. In the first volume, she was separated from her mother, and was found and taken in by a family with a young son. The manga follows what happens to Chi as she adjusts to her family and learns about the world around her, the changes that happen and the lessons her adoptive family learn as they care for Chi.
In this volume, Chi tries to become friends with another cat named Cocchi. Chi also has adventures when her adoptive family buys a widescreen HDTV, is tempted by a goldfish that the father of the family buys and brings home, and becomes sick for the first time after eating rotten meat that she found lying on the ground.
At the end of this volume, there was an interesting bonus piece that was included. There are a couple of pages that show what some of the covers of some of the other foreign issues look like, as well as some thoughts provided by editors of Chi’s Sweet Home in other countries. The countries focused on in this feature are Spain, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
