I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Oh wow, the end of this volume is the start of the second season of the anime. I thought I was going to have to read a lot more volumes to reach that point.
The Yamadas are a nice family and all, but this volume had me wondering just how smart Mr. and Mrs. Yamada really are. Clearly they didn't bother looking for pet-friendly apartments at all, considering that they latched onto the first billboard advertisement they saw.
I did like the adorable friendship between Chi and Blackie and teared up a bit when they were separated.
