The main character is, of course a cat, named Cyan. He has recently been abandoned by the parents of his master. Cyan is thrown into the basement of the apartment where he stays with his master's mother. She tearfully explains her inability to handle taking care of both the cat along with his sick master Kokoro.
Cyan decides to stay in the basement and stick it out until his master gets better. However, the cats in the basement have other plans. They declare the basement their territory and try to oust him, only to be beaten by him. The only one of them that is not beaten is the "old badger" who looks on with interest.
After looking on for a while the old badger figures out the breed of Cyan and asks him if he thinks that he has what it takes to be a "free collar". For Cyan to prove his ability, he must show he can remove his collar in three days.
After much pondering, and in the midst of battle, Cyan removes his collar letting his wild spirit free - and thus becomes a free collar. But he only accomplishes this with the help of Scottie - the cat who he once lived next door to.
Settings and Artwork
This manga has many martial arts type scenes along with plenty of comedy. From its wacked out so-called villains to its even wackier heroes. Being an admirer of cats, this manga has great illustrations of beautiful cat ears. The artwork is very beautiful and impressive. A lot of detail has gone into this and is extremely appealing to the eye. It almost makes you feel as if its moving with you as you read it.
Free Collars Kingdom is more of an older but kid type manga. Not too adult, but not too child like either. With an interesting plot, you will be sure to enjoy it.
This manga is kind of like a tribute to cat ears in a manga. A fun read that has many aspects that can attract many different audiences.
So give it a try, you'll definitly like it.
