The Quiet Joy Of Sharing a Meal

My Roommate is a Cat Episode 10 Review

There’s not much to say about this episode of My Roommate is a Cat. Subaru is exhausted after pulling all nighters to finish writing but Hiroto’s sister and her friend come to play. In the process they teach Subaru how to cook a meal for Haru and the remainder of the episode is Subaru first trying to buy the ingredients for the meal and then prepare it before we flip to Haru’s point of view.

If you are watching this because you enjoy Subaru’s awkward nature and the play between cat and human, this episode will be great fun. The payoff when the two eat together at the end is well worth it. However, there’s little else to this episode that would really stand out.

I do find Haru’s perspective is starting to wear a little thin with her constant worrying about Subaru not eating. Admittedly, it is a legitimate concern but it is starting to become a bit repetitive. There was very little added through seeing Haru’s perspective this week and the end of the episode felt a bit weak because of it.

Still, seeing Subaru stumped at the grocery store and Hiroto coming to his rescue was amusing enough and the final scene of cat and human, fed and happy, is certainly heart warming enough. This series remains cute enough and entertaining for those who relate to owning a cat (or being owned by a cat) but episodes like this one show the decidedly one note nature of the series.

  1. I actually really liked the small scene where he remembered his mother asking if today’s stew was alright and he realising that she wanted him to tell her it was good. These short memories where he comes to understand better his relationship with his parents and how this growth is triggered by his relationship with Haru are very touching and give the anime a bit of narrative drive

    1. I think it is more cats allow themselves to be cared for as a favour to their foolish human. That said, they can be pretty protective of their human.

I'd love to know what you think.
