| Quirky Japanese comedy and warm-hearted cat film
Feel-good comedy/drama apparently based on a Japanese manga story. A female, middle-aged, successful writer of manga, Asoko, loses her inspiration after her long time companion, Saba, a cat, dies. Asoko is sad and alone. A quirky group of young all-female assistant writers who work with and adore Asoko, encourage her to get a new cat and try to set her up with a boyfriend. They are relieved when eventually she finds the perfect cat, "Gu Gu", whose antics and personality bring joy back to Asoko. Her love for Gu Gu and her friendships help her deal with new challenges. Takes place in the trendy Kichijoji area of Tokyo. This is a woman's movie with unique Japanese comedy elements. Fun but also sad. A goofy American English teacher at a local school is a sort of observer and commentator during the film has an unfortunate resemblance to Kenny G. A must see for cat lovers.
