My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is Hino's suavest narrator. A black cat, left behind when families adopt his adorable white and calico brothers, sets out to study human beings He finds several grotesque examples, the most striking among them a violent and profane elderly couple whose antipathy extends beyond the grave. At the end the black cat ponders "Human beings. What are they really?" For a Hino manga, there is a surprising absence of maggots and rotting corpses.
