Chi Finds New Sweet Home With Vertical

Chi's Sweet Home

As if responding to recent request, Amazon.ca delivers what will undoubtedly be exciting news to hopeful fans: Vertical appears to now hold the license for Kanata Konami’s Chi’s Sweet Home.

What is Chi’s Sweet Home? I’m not entirely sure but I can venture it’s about a cat and is very cute. I’m not a cat person myself, but the description of “…it’s Yotsuba with a kitten instead of a green-haired pre-schooler.” from Precocious Curmudgeon is enough to pique my interest. Enjoy cat lovers! By Amazon’s listing, the first volume is slated for release in June 2010.

Edit: Ed Chavez of Vertical has informed me that Vertical does not infact have the license for Chi’s Sweet Home. Currently there is no word as to why this information was submitted as such to Amazon, which now lists the book on both .com and .ca websites.
