That's right, a thread dedicated entirely to manga/anime cats. I've wanted to start this thread for months but I always forget. My favorite cat.
He's a very smart cat. Known to follow Ryoma to school and can be mischievous at times. Karupin also reminds me of my own Siamese cat because of the markings. Karupin is a Himalayan cat, the brown spot on his face and long hair is a dead giveaway.
You can't keep a man from loving his cat.
What cats have you found in manga/anime? Have a favorite?
Yoruichi - Talking black cat usually around the Urahara Store, but of course she isn't your usual cat
What about Doraemon, one of the most famous manga ever.
Only thing is, he's always mistaken for a raccoon LOL.
*gasp* Six replies in and these cats aren't mentioned? My childhood is disappoint. (Just kiddng!)
Very obvious where they're from. :3
well here is another
Samurai Pizza Cats
Speedy Cerviche (pronounced "ser-vee-chay"): Speedy Cerviche is the leader of the Samurai Pizza Cats. As his name implies, Speedy is nimble and fast on his toes, a trait which comes in handy both when delivering pizzas and when fighting crime. He wields the magical Ginzu sword (Masamasa), whose power is unleashed in almost every episode as Speedy's special attack, the Cat's Eye Slash. Speedy is very self-confident and loves to pose for the camera after each victory. He has a sharp sense of humor and often provides sarcastic and witty dialogue but remains very committed to his duties. He has green eyes and wears white armor. There has been controversy over the spelling of his name. Initially it was thought that Speedy's surname was spelled "Service" ("service" pronounced with Italian phonics sounds like "ser-vee-chay," making the name "Speedy Service" a tidy pun). However, most official packaging (such as the VHS box for the movie) spells his name "Cerviche," making it the de facto spelling. Ceviche (also spelled as cebiche or seviche) is actually a seafood dish prepared not by cooking but by using citrus to treat the meat.
Polly Esther (Pururun プルルン): Polly Esther is the only girl on the team. Although Speedy is the leader, Polly does her fair share of bossing her teammates around. She has a fiery temper and a dynamic, independent personality. Polly battles evil with the power of love: she plays a flute when going into battle, her projectile weapons are heart-shaped, she has a sword with hearts on the handle (Kirakira), and she can charm foes to make them move in the range of her razor-sharp claws. She has blue eyes and wears red and pink armour. While Guido and Speedy never remove most of their armour even at work (a parody of Superman hiding his identity only by wearing glasses), Polly removes her armour on two occasions, during which she is shown with short red hair and a hairband upon which her ears sit. Her name is a play on the word polyester.
Guido Anchovy (Sukashii スカシー): Guido Anchovy is the resident cool dude of the group. Tall, dark-furred, and a smooth talker, he is often seen chasing after girls, although he has little success in romance. Guido's weapon of choice is the Samurai Sunspot Umbrella, which can fire rings, fire a heat beam, be spun to hypnotize enemies, and be used as a club (when closed) or a shield (when open). Its handle conceals Guido's sword (Pikapika). Guido has red eyes and wears blue armour. His name is a reference to the anchovy fish, and Guido is common Italian given name, and is also used as a slang term for a young, male Italian-American in New York.
In Planetes there appears an imaginary cat, which probably could be called Hachimiki's subconsciousness in a way - though I'm not sure yet, I didn't read it very far yet. It's a kinda philosophical talking cat.
Another character from Planetes, Tanabe, also has some relations to a black cat:
