Cats and love, it's all that I need
7 July 2020 | by MarcoParzivalRochaSee all my reviews

Muge, a young woman with an unrequited love, decides to become a cat, so that she can get closer to her beloved. The narrative is nothing extraordinary, but it manages to capture the viewer attention, with a good pace, and a well-built connection between characters. The narrative's main themes are more than known to the public, such as teen love and friendship, but also depression and insecurity, subtly, and successfully achieved. The animation itself surprised me in a positive way, with rich and detailed backgrounds, nice colors and two or three interesting moments. Some transitions are a little strange, but it's all good.
