"The Black Cat" Study Guide
Not much to say for this section. Sound: The music that plays in Black Cat is mostly dramatic to fit the corresponding scene it plays into. Other than that, the music is well orchestated. However some music can be a bit over-dramatic such as the piano solo played by the anime's main antagonist (whom I .

2. In Japan, you don’t just love someone (most often a child or grandchild) to bits.
Japanese Bobtails are known for being sociable, playful, and interactive. They also have excel at feline agility, according to the Cat Fancier’s Association. Like most cat breeds, they come in a wide variety of colors. Black bobtails have dense, coal-black and sleek coats. Interesting Fact: Each bobbed tail, like a fingerprint, is unique to. quote: Never say it to a Japanese person – unless he is younger than you, or wants you to say it (and when it comes to women, don’t say it at all.) “Osu!” should be used very carefully, especially toward Japanese and people of higher rank/status/age than you – and more so if you are a woman. You say that it’s like comparing “the moon and a soft-shell turtle” (??????: tsuki to suppon). In Japan, when something is very small in size, you don’t say it’s tiny. You say it’s the size of “a cat’s forehead” (???: neko no hitai).

Register an account. Dumpster fire or Missed Opportunities. Rating: 1. This manga gets a lot of attention like a dumpster fire because the mangaka is a jobber.
Reiji is in it for the money. He prolongs the same cliche of loser wants unattainable girl. Every episode, you hear what is a loser like him doing with a gorgeous girl like her. The reason we keep reading is like watching soccer where there is only a single referree who cannot be everywhere and no video replay. Yes, we talk about all the missed calls and how it would have changed the game. It sells the sport and the same goes for this manga.
He still squanders his money in renting her. At this point, I just want it to be over and I do not care if they get together. I actually think that he should man up and gracefully move on and she should get a boyfriend with the same affinities as her. They are not compatible. Also, isn't it strange how she has no close friends at all and no current boyfriend, someone so charming and good looking?!?
Last updated on November 17th, , pm. Was this comment useful? Yes No. Relationships Must have been easy for people poorly rating :. Sorry, the MC is pretty relatable to a ton of guys. Coming from a guy who literally broke my back to do anything I could for a girl I liked, and then locked up in a friend zone, this was a blast of nostalgia and hilarity for me. That may or may not be what the writer was aiming at, but there are tons of people who can take something away from this story.
Some of it can be a little cringey sure. Ruka's definitely not my favorite character but she has a purpose in order for entertainment value. Without spoilers, I can honestly say though. If you are a guy yeah guys can definitely enjoy this stuff, I sure did!
I'm at the end at right now, and personally can't wait to see where things go! I like the thing. I should start off by saying that this thing is a shonen. If you're too in-depth with regards to minor details and other similar thingamabobs, I'm not so sure you're going to like it. However, if you're similar to the MC's situation, you can also feel dread the further you read into it. Characters are given some spotlight here and there, but it's mainly just Chizuru and Kazuya.
Everyone saying that Kazuya's actions aren't justified and insisting on why she's still dating Chizuru even after he got in a relationship with Ruka probably doesn't understand the situation. I've read up to the furthest chapter released in this time September 8 , and I can absolutely understand what everyone is saying about the series.
Sure, it has some flaws here and there, but I can't deny that I really got hooked in the story. I can't come to like the male and female lead. Rating: 7. To be honest, I don't really like it at the beginning. Even now, I still don't really like this manga. I mean, I even skipped so many chapters here and began reading again at the time when Kazuya was preparing the script and funding for the movie.
I appreciate Kazuya for his honesty, compassion, and sincere feeling to help Chizuru. He worked really hard for that film even though he didn't know anything about film production previously. I respect him for this. But I don't like him since he feels like the type of guy who can't make clear decision to reject a girl he's actually not interested to.
Or did he unconciously just enjoy being around women? Anyway, in my mothertounge, I call Kazuya as a "plin plan" guy because of this. And I don't like Chizuru. I have found some hard-hearted women as the female lead in other manga, but Chizuru is really exceptional. And even after all what Kazuya did for her, even if deep down she felt thankful and happy for it, she always act as stubborn as ever. What did she think Kazuya is? Honestly, I can't sympathize with the male and female lead.
At all. However, to be a bit fair for this manga, I actually liked the concept a little bit. I often hear about the rental girlfriend profession in videos about Japan I watched, but to make this into a focus in a manga was interesting.
I'll give it 7, I think. Rating: 3. I thought the idea of a "rental girlfriend" seemed quirky and interesting, and if the story progresses right, this would have been a very fun read The artwork is definitely very fun and creative. However, the characters are not memorable besides Kazuya's friend Kibe and Umi , quite childish, and can make reading the manga painfully boring. So this manga ends up going around in circles multiple times with a new character or updated script but the drama is still generally the same idea.
No drama is ever so great that it is hindering yet builds character. Instead, the mangaka creates a lot of little drama that's just more of an annoyance that serves no actual purpose. Eventually, the plot strays and it focuses on Chizuru's dreams of acting but by the time I reached that point, the manga is already so boring that I've stopped investing good time in reading it. Example dramas that should have been emphasized for more drama: 1.
Nanami and her vow to break Kazuya and Chizuru apart. Wouldn't it have been very interesting that the ex-girlfriend who dumped Kazuya is trying to break them apart out of jealousy constantly? I thought this "revenge" was definitely downplayed, and it would've had a more dramatic effect, even if it was out of pettiness. Instead, you only see it here and there, never anything great, but always just generally there. Kazuya's family business. We don't hear about it until in the middle of the story thus far, BUT it was only mentioned briefly a few times.
We barely know what it is and why Kazuya rarely talks about it except that he will probably take over it. We don't know how he or his family feels about it.
