Do you love animals? Are you the kind who likes cuddling up with these pets? Then this divulgation is yours. It is about animals (not only cats and dogs). It is about the eccentric and mysterious behaviors of animals. This piece of information is about the launching of the Ikimonogatari manga. When splitting the term Ikimonogatari into two, we obtain monogatari: meaning story or tale and Iki: meaning understanding (depending on the context). This sums around understanding a story. In this case, we are understanding animal behaviors through stories. Without beating around the bush, let’s shine more light on the Ikimonogatari manga.
Did you know?
The author of this promising animal manga; Ikimonogatari, is none other than Hidekichi Matsumoto. Though she can’t be compared to the great Hiromi Arakawa (another great lady. Creator of full metal alchemist the brotherhood), she does pretty decent works. She is in the comedy type, giving smiles to both kids and adults. She is known for some famous manga, among which some had anime adaptations. Her works that got anime adaptations are;
Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei
Survival Game Club!, and the famous
Inu to Neko Docchimo Katteru to Mainichi Tanoshii (With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun).
She captivated everyone with her adventures with her terrific cat and docile dog. With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun, she dipped her toes into manga concerning animals. Now, she is clearly sinking and it is leading her to create the Ikimonogatari manga.
Are there people who love animals more than this author? Sorry guys, wrong call. There definitely are. You are wondering who? Well, those owning National Geographic Wild (A whole channel dedicated only to animals. If that is not love then I am an illiterate). Among all her serialized manga, the one with the highest numbers of positive reviews is Inu to Neko Docchimo Katteru to Mainichi Tanoshii.
A little digging (a very minute digging) showed that, in Inu to Neko Docchimo Katteru to Mainichi Tanoshii, her creativity level was beyond measure. In her upcoming Ikimonogatari manga, she seems to want to show us a global view on animal behavior. But, in Inu to Neko, she focuses on the behaviours of her dog and cat. We are pulled in a slightly similar Garfield and Odie show. Slightly because her cat; Neko, is extremely savage (Garfield doesn’t compare). And her dog, Inu, is a high energy, fun-loving dog. The art style used, is the fast-sketchy type, but still everyone feels her love for her pets.
Speaking of pets, our little digging revealed a third companion. Miss Hidekichi Matsumoto possesses a third pet counting her dog and cat. That pet is a lizard. The mixture of these pets can push someone to want to understand the mysterious behaviours of animals. Maybe it is the trigger to the Ikimonogatari manga. Well, I don’t know the trigger, I may have guessed it, but with certainty; I can say the launching of the Ikimonogatari manga is at hand.
The manga; Ikimonogatari concentrates on the strange and mysterious behaviours of animals. Since it shall be on animal behaviours and mysteries, we hope to learn real life stuffs without neglecting the fun factor. I am preparing myself to finally understand why cuckoo birds lay their eggs in a nest different from theirs. Or, why is it that elephants seem to have a mourning ritual when one of theirs dies (Even chimpanzees who are closest to the homo sapiens don’t do that).
The last strange behavior among others is the one of penguins giving engagement rings to their mating partners. The engagement rings are a bit of an exaggeration, but they have a similar mating ritual. It goes as thus; the male penguin (male Adelie penguin) rolls a stone to the feet of the female to make it clear that the engagement has been offered. The Ikimonogatari manga sounds very entertaining and fun-promising.
In the end
