He follows her home and suddenly Sayoko's life seems to completely fall apart.

Critic Reviews for Rentaneko (Rent-a-Cat)

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • Unlike many other films that explore loneliness as part of modern life, Rent-A-Cat is particularly uplifting with its simple message - that "nothing is better than a cat for when you're feeling lonely."

  • Thankfully the cats save the day, and additional credit goes to Ogigami for steering clear of romcom conventions.
