Nekojiro - Nekojiro Udon 1

This is the last of the manga books I bought on holiday. I remembered Nekojiro from 'Secret Comics Japan' or 'Sake Jock', one of those early books of underground Japanese comics. Do you remember when that was the only way to see any weird manga? This collection has the story from there, the one where they hold a court to judge insects in their backyard. The other stories are all different types, a lot are dark, weird or philosophical. The stories usually star the brother and sister cats. They can be cruel, but they are cats after all.

Here's a double page from a story about priests trying to convert the cats, but they are not keen.
