Animals in Anime – Cats part 2

Today I serve the continuation of the “Animals in Anime – Cats” post.

Azumanga Daioh

Kamineko

Kamineko

The first one is this legendary cat from Azumanga Daioh. It is very cute, but as most of you surely know it is also very aggresive. Its head is as big as the rest of the body, which makes it similar to Maa-shachou from previous post. Mouth can be even larger than head itself, and teeth look more like a guillotine than real cat, or even human teeth. Eyes look like two-colored buttons. All in all, this cat is a big weirdo among other weirdo cats in anime.

Mayaa

Mayaa

Iriomote Mountain cat, known also as Yamamayaa or Yamapikaryaa, even as Pikanyaa, named Mayaa is a very brave cat who lost her mother. Its looks are similar to Kamineko but his coloring shows that it is a wild cat. He is also somewhat sturdier than Kamineko and can maintain a battle aura.

Nekokoneko

Nekokoneko

This popular neko plushie from Azumanga is obviously similar to Mayaa and Kamineko. Its eyes are almost the same as Kamineko’s eyes. The tail is very thin, almost like a tale of a mouse. Nekokoneko also made appearance in Yotsuba&!.

Chiyo-chichi

Chiyo-chichi, also known as Chiyo’s dad. This strange flat thing that doesn’t look like any of discovered animal species is actually a cat, too. And at the same time, it’s also dad of a “normal” high school girl, and obviously can speek too. His unusual appearance makes it very difficult to describe. This thing is certainly a fake cat ^_^

Love Hina

Kuro

Kuro

Kuro is a black cat and even has it in name (Kuro means Black). Its extremely big ears make him able to fly. The rest of his body looks like a regular cat, it even has whiskers, but because of the ears it’s really hard to say that Kuro is a normal cat.

Gakkou no Kaidan

Kaya

Kaya

Kaya is a cat that is possessed by Amanojaku, an evil spiritual being. If you leave this fact aside, Kaya is a normal cat. Only its eyes are unusual, because each has a different color. Kaya also has whiskers and regular cat teeth. It definitely is one of the few normal cats in anime.

Next time will be Dogs in Anime.
