    As with the first volume, Square Enix have used good quality paper and included four colour images at front and back, including one very cute 4-koma page of the cats owner in cosplay. The translation by Taylor Engel continues to give us Fukumarus meowy voice very convincingly: Fukumaru Furry Flurry P-P-P-P-Punch!!!(attacking his own reflection in the mirror, because). Its another nicely produced volume which any cat owner or enthusiast will be happy to own and dip into! I can only hope that in subsequent volumes Umi Sakurai can keep the delicate balance between gentle humour and sentiment just right. Fukumarus personality (more than a little tsundere) will probably go a long way to ensuring his story stays the right side of the line. Read Full Review
