    Subaru is a novelist, and not very good with people. He’s been alone since his parent’s death, but one day while praying at their grave, a cat comes and eats his offering. Deciding to take it home, he now is shouldered with a cat, and this stray is shouldered with caring for a human who can barely care for himself.

    I feel like we all know that one person whose roommate is a cat. Still, it’s soothing and cute. If you want more, we got anime recommendations for you.




    For Fans of Pet Ownership

    How to Raise a Mummy

    Sora’s father is an adventurers who, one day, sends him an odd package. Inside is the last thing he expected, a mummy so small it can fit in his hand.

    Although the mummy is given less personality, taking care of a supernatural creature isn’t so different than taking care of an animal. Both anime series only have one purpose, to be a chill series about cute pets. There are overall plots to both, but they aren’t very strong.



    Mikan’s Picture Diary

    Tomu takes in a stray kitten that was left for dead. After nurturing it is back to health, he discovers his orange cat is smart enough to talk, read, and drink like an alcoholic.

    Obviously, both series are about a guy that finds a stray. However, they do diverge at key points. In Mikan’s Picture Diary, the cat can actually talk. Although, despite this difference, they both stay comedy series.



    She and Her Cat – Everything Flows

    Daru is inseparable from her girl, growing up together. Now with the girl in junior college, she must set out on her own. All the while, she is being watched carefully by her cat.

    Both are series about people living their lives with only their cats around them. Both shows also show the cat’s perspective on weird things that humans do. However, My Roommate is a Cat is more oriented towards comedy while She and Her Cat is a poignant slice of life.

    For Fans of Rehabilitating Protagonists

    Poko’s Udon World

    Souta Tawara is a web designer that has been working in Tokyo. However, when he returns to his small town to visit family, he discovers a young boy alone and with a supernatural secret. Upon the confrontation, Souta decides to quit his job and take care of this boy dubbed Poko. This anime follows their daily adventures in the Kagawa Prefecture, the Udon Kingdom.

    Although a small child, Poko is also a tanuki creature. Like the cat in my Roommate is a Cat, Poko serves as the catalyst for growth in Souta’s life. Through these creatures, these kind of broken guys learn to be normal functioning people again.



    Recovery of an MMO Junkie

    Morioka Moriko has had enough of being an overworked corporate slave, so she decided to retire herself to the NEET lifestyle. While at home, yearning for the previous connections she once made in online gaming, she starts up a new MMO. There she creates her character, the handsome Hayashi. However, in her newbie struggles she meets a Lily, another character willing to help her and they begin to grow closer to each other. At the same time, in real life, Moriko also has a shocking encounter with a handsome corporate employee.

    Unfortunately, there is no cat or animal that rehabilitates Moriko in this show, but she is still rehabilitated through playing an MMO and meeting certain people within. Similar to My Roommate is a Cat, you watch the characters interact in positive ways and reflect on their growth.



    Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid

    Miss Kobayashi is a programmer that lives alone in her apartment. However, one day a giant green dragons ends up on her doorstep and transforms into a women in a maid outfit. Apparently Kobayashi had gotten drunk one night and ended up saving this dragon. Now, dragon Tooru intends to repay her debt through housework.

    Obviously the cat in my Roommate is a Cat is just like Tooru. I mean, they both take care of their helpless keepers, clearly. It doesn’t matter if Tooru is a dragon or a maid. Of course, you also watch these creatures teach their humans just as much as their humans teach them.

    For Fans of Through The Animals Eye’s

    Go Forward

    Mametaro is a crossbreed dog that loves to hang out with his owner. Finally the warm days of spring have arrived which causes what looks like an ordinary neighborhood to all humans to come alive with mystery.

    While it is about dogs, Go Forward, like parts of My Roommate is a Cat, shows you the world through the animals eyes. What seems normal to us is pretty weird to them.



    Wanwan Celepoo Sore Yuke! Tetsunoshin

    The Inuyama family and their pet dog Tetsunoshin have recently moved to the famous Hoppongi Hills. Unfortunately, when the family hits hard times, it is up to Tetsunoshin and his Hill dog friends to do anything to make sure the family keeps their head above water.

    While both are comedy shows, you will note that Wan Wan is a little more silly than you’d expect. Though despite being about dogs, like My Roommate is a Cat, it is also about a pet trying to take care of their people, even if they don’t actually need taken care of.
