I have spent the last couple of months in a depressed, lifeless haze. This has been an ointment to the wound that is my existence. Plum has given me the strength to go on. Thanks.

If you just read one cute cat manga, this is the one you should go with. It has all the cuteness of something like Chi's Sweet Home but with a real fidelity to cat behavior - I could see numerous cats I've shared my life with in each story. ...more

I enjoyed this, and would love to read more of the series.

These days someone close to me has been obessed with cats. This is a cute story for all non cat lovers and cat lovers.
It is written based of the writer's experience and views. There are some vibes about the travelling chronicles of cat in here just saying 🐱

So basically this is a story about plum who loves with 2 owners. One day they adopted another kitten and named her snowball. Plum became very jealous as the love from the owners were divided. Mostly giving more attention to snowball than plum

My Review: I have recently started dipping my toes into the world of Manga and cats are almost always a sure thing for me, so when I found this adorable cover I decided to jump into the series. This is a cute Manga comprising of several short stories in the life of the cat named Plum. She is a very sweet cat who adores her people and understands them well. All of these stories take place after Plum brings home a shivering, starving kitten and chaos begins. I adored little Plum, she is such a kin ...more

As being a crazy cat lady and have grown up with cats me entire life, I loved reading this.

The art is beautifully done and the cats are super cute. The story and cats are based off of the writer's own cats and some experiences.

A mother and son (Taku-chan) live together who has a cat named Plum. Plum ventures out and comes back with a sick, hungry stay kitten. They end up adopting the kitten and names her Snowball. Snowball beats up Plum every chance she gets, even though Plum saved her and low

Plum Crazy is about a cat named Plum who has a competent owner (Taku) with a not-so-competent mother. Then a kitten joins the family and chaos ensues.

It's... cute, but it feels like it's lacking in the character department. With the amount of focus on the human characters, I wish there was a bit more to them than their is. Or that their was less of them and more of the cats. Or that it worked a little more on the comedic timing end of things.

Plum Crazy didn't work for me as much as past cat mang

Super cute new Japanese kitty - Plum, the tiger-striped kitty with saucer-sized eyes. Plum lives with Taku, a high school boy and his mom who teaches traditional Japanese dance. A new kitten named Snowball comes to live with them and there are many adventures including visiting the high school. I nearly died when another pet gets loose at the high school at the same time as Plum - a raccoon named Chee. Yikes!!!!! Haven't read a proper manga in a while so it took a bit to retrain my brain.

This is so adorable! I can relate to what the humans feel as a cat guardian. Plum is a very sweet cat who after years of being the only cat has to adjust to a new kitten. I wish my older cat was half as tolerant as Plum is of Snowball.

We get to see some of what the cats are thinking but they aren't made into little furry humans. They're still very much cats. I recognized behaviors and expressions. I wish I recognized more of the sweet moments :)

I really had high hopes for this book. I loved the art, I loved the cats, and the story, however I could not stand the owners in this one. I felt like they narrated everything to much and were trying to be silly characters but took themselves too seriously during the silly parts of the book. I almost wish they were left out entirely. I am truly sad I did not enjoy this book as much as I wanted to

Adorable Plum the cat lives happily with her two humans until new kitten Snowball is added to the mix.

Good thing: The behavior here is very much real cat. I love seeing images of puffy cats snuggling with wool sweaters.

Bad thing: Snowball takes out frustration/being scared, etc. by biting Plum. I'm being too much of a softie here but it made me sad.

I don't believe I'll be reading more of the series but I haven't completely ruled it out.

This is saccharine without being stupid. It's a winsome slice of life manga about a cat named Plum, her humans, and the kitten she rescues. The cats are expressive while being realistic. You'll occasionally get some thoughts from the cats, but the cats never talk or do anthropomorphic things.

This is a very sweet manga, and I'd be comfortable handing it to any student.

HOLY COW DO YOU LOVE CATS
THIS MANGA HAS LIKE A HANDFUL OF THEM
This is the slice-of-life story of sweet, responsible tabby Plum and her sadistic little adopted kitty-sibling, Snowball, and all the hijinks they get into while living with a nice human woman and her son.
Very cute if predictable, with adorable illustrations.

I can visualize the audience for a manga about the adventures of a moody and mischievous cat...but I am the exact opposite of that audience. So I have no intention of giving this title a rating.

If you like manga (and the associated over-the-top emotive characters) and you love stories about cats (particularly ones who have bold personalities) this is probably the right read for you.

4 stars for cuteness. Minus 1 for the backward format, which I find effing confusing!

I picked this up because the cute cat on the cover looks quite a lot like my cute cat, Gizmo (want to see Giz? Check out my current profile pic. Because I'm not able to link pictures). And I enjoyed it because the story is SO cute!

This is adorable. A couple of cats being cute and cat-like. There's not a ton of story happening here, but if you just want a cute distraction from an interminable car repair, or a sort of manga equivalent to cat videos, this is perfect. ...more

I like cats. I don't love them. I'm not obsessed with them. They're cute (usually) and that's about it. Since I'm not obsessed with them I found this immensely boring. If you're a kitty freak, this will probably make you squee all the way to your death. ...more

Recommends it for: Cat lovers
Very cute book! These stories are completely from the perspectives of the owners, Taku and his mom. I was a bit bored with that since I enjoy animal-centric stories when you get to see what the animals are thinking like Hamtaro or Chi's Home. Still, for cat lovers, this is a great manga. ...more

These are just the sweetest manga ever. Not to mention that Plum and Snowball are doppelgängers for my two cats.
