We know that Japanese Manga is popular world-wide, but have you ever heard about a Japanese cartoon “Kyo no Nekomura-san (Today’s Mrs. Nekomura)”?
It is an outrageous setting that a cat is dispatched as a housekeeper. But she does the housework very well, sometimes kindly gives a good massage to her colleague or even amends a delinquent daughter of the house’s owner she works for. She has so much more common-sense than human do, and that makes her character so funny and popular.
The delinquent daughter : Get out of here !
Mrs. Nekomura (Housekeeper cat) : Don’t say that! If you won’t have the tonihgt dinner, I can’t leave hrer.
The cute drawing is of course a key reason of its popularity, but the story seems to reflect the modern Japanese society, which has been said deteriorated.
