She and Her Cat: An Anime (Short) Movie Review
Length: 5 minutes
Genre: Slice of life
Source Material: Anime original by Makoto Shinkai
No Trailer, but here's the beautiful ED theme:
There's really no excuse for you not to check out this 5 minute short that is beautifully written and produced by the great Makoto Shinkai (his other works include Voices of a Distant Star, 5cm per Second). She and Her Cat tells the sweet story of how Chobi (the cat) is found by a woman (Her) on a rainy day and how they spend their first year together in Her small apartment, all of which is narrated from Chobi's point of view.
**No Spoilers...cause the whole thing is only 5 minutes long!**
Chobi is a sweet, non-judgmental companion who understands the limits to which he can comfort Her, but he is always unwavering in his convictions that She is the best, and that She is his world--even as he acknowledges that the world is much larger than just the two of them. For me, She and Her Cat portrays one of the most simple yet beautiful bonds of trust and love there is, and in only 5 minutes too! If you're looking for a quick anime short that'll leave you smiling, check out this wonderful piece!
Ps. I can't post a review about a movie where the main character is a cat without posting a picture of my own furry friend. Mew is not quite like Chobi, but she's still a very good cat. :)
