I’ve been reading graphic novels somewhat regularly now yet somehow I keep neglecting to write about them. Conri is a young cat-boy, an alien species that has come to live on earth. Only problem is that humans have enslaved them and force them to live as collared pets. Conri is on his own and in his own naive, stubborn ways thinks he can take on anything or anyone. Naturally, it is at this point that he is almost captured. Adrian, a human, saves him from capture but Conri has a hard time believing Adrian has no interest in making him his slave.
This is a cute manga with some pretty serious dystopia type issues going on. The characters will draw readers in quickly and despite the premise of aliens that look like a cross between cats and humans, universal themes of the need for love and acceptance will ring true with many readers. 2008.
