The Japanese tend to love cats. They also tend to cherish their samurai past. So it’s only natural that Japanese television would one day combine the two and create a TV show that involves a samurai and a cat.
In this TV show, a samurai is hired to kill a rival’s cat. However, the samurai refuses, and instead rescues the feline and protects it from its enemies. Such a TV show allows the Japanese to cherish both their samurai past and their love for cats.
