Love is found in the strangest places and with the most unexpected partners. The men (and cats!) of SENTIMENTAL GARDEN LOVER burst into heart-throbbing bloom!
A scruffy stray cat wishes for big hands to hold an abused man, and a cute kitten begs for speech to comfort a broken-hearted stranger. Wander further into the garden, and you'll find close siblings upset by a love rival; a jaded delinquent flustered by a trusting bookworm; an evasive, glasses-hating man; and a president eager to find a weakness in his perfect secretary.
For both cat and human, the quest for love is here!
1. Sentimental Garden Lover
Fuji is in love with Hiro... so much, that he feels no matter how far he stretches his arms, they could never encompass Hiro. Everyday he watches Hiro's abusive lover, wanting to rescue Hiro, but there is nothing he can do because... Fuji is a cat. When Fuji miraculously acquires a human body, and Hiro finds him, the past interferes in their future.
2. At Home Holiday Lover
Shima, the other cat, quietly lets go as he watches Fuji and Hiro and begins searching for a place to call his. He literally falls into the arms of love when he passes out from hunger and lack of sleep and tumbles into a man's bag. Taki brings Shima home and feeds him milk, breaking through Shima's defenses. But Shima finds himself in a painful love again, only able to watch desperately as Taki and his ex-lover (who is also named Shima) try to let go of one another.
3. I'm Home!
When Fuji tries to make Hiro coffee but fails (he's a cat... duh.) he decides that doing the dinner shopping is an even better idea. He gets chased by a stall owner and needing a place to hide, he finds a lovely open bag sitting there. And that bag belongs to none other than Taki-san! Fuji is reunited with Shima, but neither one knows where Hiro's house is...
4. From the Heart
Shigino is a delinquent who's always getting into fights, and on top of that, he gets blamed for things he hasn't done... but everyone has already made up their minds, so what's the point of denying it? One night, bloody and being chased by cops, he stumbles into an old bookstore. The owner, Sakurai-kun, is a bubbly guy who starts talking non-stop... but Shigino finds himself coming back again and again. For once, he hopes someone won't find out what they say about him... but what happens when Sakurai does?
5. Right Palm, Left Palm
They're brothers. That's why they are so close, that's why they hold hands, that's why they kiss... but why is it that they have been told so many times "Your love is strange."? When a friend says something to him, the older brother begins to understand that maybe he can't let go anymore... and what people mean by that statement. But what if Naoto doesn't want his nii-san to let go?
6. And I Come to Like You
When Oya's junior, Kuze, confesses to him a week after Oya was dumped, things get complicated. Oya likes Kuze, but can't accept the fact that Kuze wears glasses.... because the one who dumped him also wore glasses. Oya comes up with a stupid excuse about hating glasses... but Kuze doesn't believe him?
7. I Want You to Always Smile
The President has a problem: his secretary. Natori is so neat, and organized, and on top of things! Determined to bribe him, the President tries to find dirt on Natori... but he can't - that is, until he sees Natori looking happily at cakes in a bakery. Maybe, with a little bit of cake, the President can find out why his secretary is so dedicated.
