The many great cats throughout Japan's history are back to strut their stuff in a new season. They continue to leave their mark on history, doing whatever they want, but what else would you expect from a cat? They get bored fast, and love to sharpen their claws and take naps. They might be scared of water and loud noises, but the amount of energy they display when they get excited is something to see! What kind of history will we see them create this time around?
Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha's manga website Comic Ruelle serializes the manga.
