The Walking Cat is unique in the zombie manga genre in that instead of the POV of a person surviving the zombie apocalypse, the primary POV is that of a cat. In this world setting, only humans can be infected and become zombies and our titular cat is just trying to survive with their human companions throughout this three volume series. As the story progresses, you learn a little about the world at large, but most of the story is down to earth and about the different people the cat interacts with along the way. Their path to safety is filled with various humans whose unique stories are heartbreaking and fascinating. A warning to squeamish readers, there are some graphically violent moments in the series so be warned about potential body horror of zombies and the feeding on of eating flesh. Overall, I really enjoyed this series, though. For me, it felt like a fresh take on zombies in a world sturated with different stories about them.
