Summary

Summary

Stray kitty Fuku Fuku has been adopted into the home of a widowed grandmother and the two quickly begin to develop a relationship viewed through the kitten's eyes. Fuku Fuku is Konami Kanata's flagship work, a series that has been running continually in Japan since 1988, and even made a brief appearance in Chi's Sweet Home Volume 2 (Vertical, also available). Now Konami's first feline love is coming to English and readers, stores, libraries and cat-fanciers cannot be more excited!


Author Notes

Konami Kanata was born on July 3, 1958, in Nagano, Japan. A veteran manga artist Konami made her professional debut in 1982 with the serialized comic Petit Cat Jam-Jam for Kodansha's semenal shoujo manga magazine NakaYoshi. The daughter of an elementary school teacher, most of Konami's stories are for readers of all ages making her one of the most accessible artists in recent history.

In her nearly thirty year career, Konami has penned more than a dozen comic series, with the majority of them focusing on cats and pets. Konami is well regarded within the pet-manga community for her keen sense of cat ecology. Her ability to observe and render feline behavior has earned her respect from the Japanese manga community as a whole. While most of her properties were published for a younger female demographic, her most recent series Chi's Sweet Home is currently being published by Kodansha's Morning magazine, Japan's leading comic magazine for adult readers. Proving that quality can be found even in the cutest of sources.
