Korean webtoon portal Lezhin Comics recently posted the first nine episodes (that’s what they call them, not chapters) of this funny, sweet, cute, and touching series.
In either manga or anime format, the series tells about a mystery novel writer who adopts — or gets adopted by, depending upon your point-of-view — a stray cat.
Both the writer and the cat take turns narrating the anime. As these two adjust to living with each other, the same events are interpreted in different ways when seen through the eyes of either the human or the cat.
Needless to say, each one is often puzzled by the other’s weird and/ or reckless behavior.
The series’ original Japanese title is Dokyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue, which translates out as “My Housemate Is on My Lap, But Sometimes, on My Head.” It’s probably a good thing that they changed the English-language title for the anime.
Minatsuki, who also goes by Tsunami Minatsuki, writes the manga. Asu Futatsuya illustrates it.
The manga series began in June 2015. So far, the manga has been bundled into six tankobon volumes.
The first season of the anime came to a conclusion after 12 episodes. A second season has not been announced.
If you don’t have Crunchyroll, Funimation also has the series available for streaming.
The original, Japanese-language version of the manga is available at Comic Polaris. The website posted the most recent update, Step.20 Small Invaders, on July 30.
