First rate! Hilarious and cute! On a level with the first book. The story continues as the Yamadas have to deal with the very real situation that they can't keep hiding Chi in their no-pets-allowed apartment for much longer. Chi expands and deepens his friendship with the troublemaker, Blackie the Cat. Blackies first appearance didn't endear him to me but after this volume, I've grown attached to him as we learned a lot more about his ways and feelings. Kanata really captures some truly hilariou ...more

Oh, the emotions!

I think this was my favorite Chi collection so far! The first two books were adorable, but mostly very episodic and sweet without much substance. This one starts to have more of a concrete story ('s kind of a relationship story rather than an actiony sort of story). The landlord is on the hunt for cats living in the building, and Chi may be in danger!

This volume in particular does an excellent job of exploring the relationship between cats and humans (and cats and other cats), and you
This is the third book in the Chi’s Sweet Home series. This is a wonderful manga series that is very funny and very cute. This is a wonderful series for all ages and great for those who love cats and their antics.

This is the most heart-wrenching book of the series. Chi makes a new friend in the neighbor cat Blackie, but the superintendent has finally caught up with Blackie and threatens to evict his owners. This whole event really forces the Yamada family to decide whether or not they will keep

The Cute is still too much to handle, but it's becoming just as much about the story as it is The Cute, and that's really impressing me right now. It's still cute as anything I've read, but there were a couple scenes that were just completely heartwrenching, which is such a great sign. LOVE THIS.
My niece and I both liked Volume 3 of Chi's Sweet Home, and I fell in love with Blackie, Chi's cat mentor and friend. I do hope to see Blackie appear in future volumes, because he really adds something to Chi's life and to these stories!

I have to call the dentist - sweetness overload!!

Full review to follow. Miya!
This is probably my favorite book in the series so far! This one focuses more on the relationships (cat/cat and cat/human) and the problem of keeping Chi a secret in a "pet free" apartment. Full of cute, adorable and emotional moments it's a fun book to page through. I liked Chi's relationship with Blackie (aka the Bear-Cat) and was sad to see him go (but look forward to his return). I also enjoyed seeing Chi's impact on her human family as they struggle with the possibility of having to say goo ...more

Hi friends,

I read this book and I really enjoyed it because the Chi was really cute. I am going to tell you about this cat name Chi and she lived with this family called the Yamadas. They can’t tell anyone about Chi because they live in an apartment that doesn’t allow animals and if the people know about Chi, the Yamadas will either have to move or do something to Chi. Chi was really cute and and she met this black bear cat and was hanging around with him a lot. One day, the people found out abo

Book description:
In the third volume of Chi's Sweet Home, Chi has made a new friend. There is another cat in the neighborhood. This cat is the very cat that the building manager considers to be a nuisance and the same one with a reward on his head. The cat's name is Kuro; a giant of a feline. All black and with a bit of an appetite, this cat has been known to not only sneak into people's yards but he has even been bold enough to enter some apartments searching for food.

J’ai décidé de regrouper ces trois mangas en un seul billet, pour ne pas faire de redite.

Dans ces tomes, nous retrouvons notre adorable petite Chi, toujours aussi marrante, et attachante.

J’ai pris autant de plaisir à lire ces aventures, sans éprouver de lassitude. Ma fille en a fait de même, elle est complètement accro et me demande à grand renfort de sourires, d’acheter la suite.

Nous avons donc succomber, pour notre plus grand plaisir, à la malicieuse Chi.

Ici, nous rencontrons de nouveaux perso
Chi is as curious as she is adorable. She makes tentative friends with the big black cat, and joining forces, they take on the world. But there is always the threat that the super will discover them in the apartments. And cats are not allowed! Will the families give up their precious pets or will they give up their homes? I know what I’d do! And has Chi forgotten about her real mother? There is much to do, and hardly any time for cat naps in this third volume of cat cuteness.
Becky B
Thanks to the shenanigans of the big black cat (sometimes with Chi as his disciple), Chi’s home is threatened unless he can find a new family or new apartment. And of course, there's normal cat antics too.

Another quick read that's a great pick for cat lovers. I thought the chapter on photography and cats was quite humorous and true to reality.

Notes on content: No content issues.
Chi's new friend, Kuro the bear-cat, teaches Chi how to act more like a cat and less like a human. They go on many adventures together, catching the landlord's attention. They nearly get captured multiple times. Sadly, Kuro is eventually caught by the landlord and he and his owner are forced to move away. Chi's family decides to move as well in order to keep Chi with them.

In this third volume of Chi's story, I'm starting to get invested in the characters. I like the big black cat especially, and I do hope that he returns in a later edition, although the author states it won't be in Volume 4. I thought it was interesting that the story pays homage to another manga artist, Risa Ito, within the story. And while the story is still overly-cute, I am looking forward to reading the next book.
I liked the little stories between Chi and the brown-bear cat and also I got lil sad when they had to move away with Chi's friend.
It's still on the same level from volume 1. Funny, adorable and very light.
How dare you make me tear up, you fluffy cutesy manga!? Such a dramatic volume *sighs*

The newest English enstallment, and it's still as adorable, although Chi is actually growing! Her memory is developing and the story is taking the turn for the more mature, she is after all (in kitten perspective) a rambunctious teenager. I enjoy the fact that she has stopped adding 'w' to almost all words just a little less than the maturity of the stories with Blackie. It was bittersweet, and very believable. Also, the Takanada's are moving next issue! Sounds like new cute adventures will be i ...more
This series is undeniably cute, but my reading of it stops at this volume. The book is not meant for an adult, and there are just way too many mews in the text.
The kitten Chi continues to grow, explore, and be the joy of his family. Volume 3 nicely concludes the first arc - I can't wait to see where the story heads next.
J'ai encore plus aimé ce troisième tome que les précédents, je l'ai trouvé très touchant. C'est vivant, on est pris dans l'histoire.
Reading this is like eating some super-sweet candy that after awhile hurts your teeth but is still totally addictive. These books are simply TOO cute with an adorable little kitten having little adventures with a big neighbor cat and his charming family while trying to stay hidden in the family's no pet's allowed apartment building. Nothing much actually happens, but there are a lot of humorous little details in the art and a very sweet, warm sense of the happy family. I would give this to young ...more
