Storyline

After two-month-old kitten Chibi-neko is abandoned by her former owners, she is found by 18-year-old Tokio. Although his mother is allergic to cats and has a great fear of them, she agrees to let him keep the kitten because she fears he is becoming too withdrawn after failing his university entrance exams. Chibi-neko soon falls in love with Tokio. In her own mind, Chibi-neko is a small human who speaks in human words, although people only ever seem to hear her meow, and she believes that all humans were once kittens like her. A stray cat tells Chibi-neko of a paradise called Cottonland, where dreams can come true.

very cute movie
19 February 2018 | by turgut150See all my reviews

I didn't see a plot written here so I will explain it a bit. (might be little bit spoilers)

Story is about a cat named Chibi-Neko who wishes to be human someday. When her owners move out, they left her stranded in the streets until a prep school student Tokio finds her. He takes her to home but there is a problem, his mother has cat allergy and she gets seizure if she touches a cat. Chibi meets another cat named Raphael. Raphael tells her about an imaginary place called ''The Cottonland'' and this place has a princess who looked exactly as Chibi (but her grown-up version).One day Raphael disappears and Chibi embarks on a journey to find him. She meets various other cats.

In the end, it is really cute for a 34 years old movie. I like to watch this kind of old animation movies.
