There’s a new Sumikko Gurashi collection and cat fans will be happy to see it features Neko. I’ve always thought Neko was the least-developed main character so it’s good to find out a bit more of his back story.
As you can see in the video, the gang bump into some cats in the forest and Neko has a flashback to his adorable kitten childhood and realises they’re his siblings!
It seems Neko was a greedy kitten and used to eat more than his share of food but they all bond a bit and have some fish biscuits.
It’s going to be hard for me to resist adding to my tiny plush collection, especially the adorable little sunflower and bee Tapiocas.
The plush multi tray is also amazing.
There’s even a teapot and mugs, plus bags, pouches, towels and more. Everything just went on sale at the San-X shop yesterday but some things are already selling out so be quick if you want something.
