The original manga basis for the Studio Ghilbli film!

Created by Aoi Hiiragi | MoreLess about The Cat Returns

When awkward schoolgirl Haru rescues a cat on her way home from school one day, the last thing she expects in return is to be honored by a feline royal family! Before she knows what’s happening to her, Haru is drawn into a world inhabited entirely by talking cats—and recruited to be the next Cat Princess! Only the dapper cat Baron and his friends, a magical crow and a comical fat cat, along with a friend from Haru’s past, can help her return home.
