It’s Manga Monday. A weekly post highlighting a different series. I’ll mostly do posts on completed or ongoing series that are regularly updated. While I do not condone scanlations, please support the creator and licensing companies by purchasing the work where available.
This week’s manga is – Tonnura-san
In the Ichinose household, three sisters live together. The oldest, Hinano, is pretty, friendly, and easygoing. However, she is also rather messy and lazy in her personal life. The middle sister, Ichino, is stern and easy to anger, but she is incredibly hardworking and does a lot of the chores and cooking around the house. The littlest sister, Satsukino, is a lovable little girl who adores animals and wants to be a vet when she grows up. Together, they live with their frightening, listless, abusive mother.
One day, Satsukino takes in a big, fat, talking cat. After the three sisters convince their mother to let them keep it, they name it Tonnura-san. But what is this mysterious cat, and where does it come from? How will the lives of the Ichinose girls change now that they have accepted Tonnura-san into their family?
Known on 4chan’s /a/ Anime & Manga board as “That F***ing Cat,” Tonnura-san fits into the category of ridiculous comedy manga. What initially starts off as just another moe-moe cutesy series turns out to have quite the spin on it. Tonnura-san, the cat himself, has uncanny abilities beyond just being able to talk. For instance, merely rubbing his belly or touching the pad of his paw would make ANY woman literally orgasm. Like, what? Seriously? Yeah, that is the kind of thing that happens. He is also very eloquent and persuasive. If you’re interested in a fun, quirky manga that will make you exclaim, “What the?!” every chapter, Tonnura-san is just for you.
