Smart, successful and good-looking Iwaya Sumire works for a big newspaper. However, her boss asks her to leave for being too "perfect" a woman. Feeling angry and dejected Iwaya returns home depressed, and most of all lonely. However, when she finds an unconscious young man lying in a box out the front of her home, she takes him in since he looks like a dog she used to own called Momo. She dubs him Momo and decides to "keep him as a pet." It's the start of an unexpected life together as they overcome obstacles and become quite attached to one another. But can love like this exist?

This manga won the 2003 Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo.

- realistic characters
- adorable story
- well developed, well planed characters and plot
- multi-dimensional issues consist of romance, work, gender, friendship, decision making, family, age (and pet?)
- enjoyable comedy (why did the mangaka name one of her main charater Gouda Takeshi?? it's hilariously funny)

a perfect josei!

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i do really hate the idea of cheating.. but what happen to Hasumi-sempai is somehow understandable. (And i do really happy for the plot, it opens way for sumire x momo :)) As for shiori, i don't like this bitchy-slutty woman at first, but in the end i kinda sympathize her, this woman is only miserably looking for love she's never got before in her chaotic life and family, and i do think she really loves Hasumi from deep down her heart. I think Sumire's got more, there's nothing to lose if she release others. And hasumi too, already has (at least more) perfect life (than shiori). There's nothing wrong if he shares his happiness to other who need it. The concept of mutual need, giving and sharing when you have more and lack any, are what i like about this manga.

I've posted up many comments about manga's and they are usually pretty bad, I guess I have my own reading standards or just that I found this AWESOME masterpiece that I had compared to everything I read these days which may be unfair. But, Kimi wa pet got an average from me, the manga is lovely I love this type of contemporary modern manga art I simply love it. And I really love the female dominance and the character of Sumire the Ice beauty who strives to keep up her image. Kimi wa pet is a sweet sort of comedy but unfortunately I didn't get to finish it because I thought it wasn't worth reading till the end, I stopped reading it at volume 5. But this is just my opinion alone, for those who actually liked it good for you.

love, shojofrik x

This is probably the best manga I have read in the last 5 or 6 months (I read A LOT of mangas). The art is lovely, specially when dealing with the complex shapes the body takes when doing modern dancing. Even though it has its clichés here and there it's not one of those mangas that are completely predictable and therefore boring.

The story is not entirely realistic (I don't know a single person that would take a human pet in) but you kind of overlook those little unrealistic bits and thoroughly enjoy the story. On the other hand, the sadness, the desperation, the loneliness, all these (and many other) strong human emotions are depicted in a most realistic way; I have been in several situations like the ones that take place in the manga and felt exactly the same way the characters did.

I absolutely recommend it and (unlike many people here) don't think the ending was rushed, it took the necessary time to develop and wrap up everything nicely.

Really dis manga is soo original, not many cliches except da ending which wasnt that good. There were some really great moments in dis manga. Dre were sum chapters tho which felt like fillers or like not connected to the overall plot here. Sometimes author tries to be too smart and dat ruins things, but otherwise da concept is good, and drez not really any smut here which is good. The realtionship between Momo and Sumire is soo unique, funny and refreshing and was the real highlight of dis story!!

I've been putting off this manga forever and I finally gave in and started reading it. I must say, I'm totally surprised. I love it. I love how it deals with sexism in everyday life, especially the work place. Something I can totally relate to. I haven't finished yet, but I felt like reviewing.

I watched the drama of this a few years ago, and i thought it was okay. Then i heard it was a manga but when i checked it out i thought it looked cheeky. Few years later on a whim i decided to read it. The drawings bugged me like other readers, but as you read on, the artwork grows on you and you understand how to appreciate it.
Kimi wa pet is a great josei manga, with lovely characters. I especially loved Sumire and Momo, as they are very realistic. It made me laugh,cry,smile and feel anger. A very in depth realistic and beautiful manga. The only problem i had with it is that it gets draggy at a point, moving at an extreme slow pace and then the mangaka jampacks everything into the last volume! i wish she would have evened out her pace more so the ending could have a natural sort of ruined the beauty of the manga with having a rushed and cliche (bit) ending.

Long ago, a person (not me of course) happened to adore Matsumoto Jun. This person (not me) went to watch every single dorama (j-drama) he starred in and happened to land on the series called Kimi Wa Petto. Oh man. That person became addicted to the series, watching it nonstop for an entire 2 days without sleep. After it ended, that person found of that "GASP. IT WAS ORIGINALLY A MANGA?!". The person ravished Google and scoured the depths of the internets to read Kimi Wa Petto. That person thinks that Kimi Wa Pet (also known as Kimi wa Petto) was the best josei manga that the person has read.
But of course, that person is not me. After all, no one would be dumb to watch Kimi Wa Petto for 2 days straight and go hunting in 5 different bookstores to read it in book format... Right?

Sumire is defiantly one of the most realistic characters I have ever come across. This might just because I have almost the same personality she does, and my defense system is the same, but yeah.

I didn't try this for the longest time because it sounded perverted, which I wouldn't really mind, but I just didn't feel like reading this type. Then, I was super bored, and had it recommended to me. I was very glad I picked it up.

The art is really nice, and the characters all very human and realistic. I defiantly recommend it.

It was pure accident a couple of years ago. The manga looked and seemed perverted to me. I was thinking....sheeesh! A workaholic and older woman decides to have a young boy as a pet...geez. BUT Im glad I went through and decided to read more chapters and found it to be a very sweet and delightful love story. Its not some shoujo manga that sometimes tends to repeat itself. The relationship between Momo and Sumire is not melodramatic and I find that their decisions and situations have a real tone on it. anyway...that is my own personal opinion. One of the best josei manga Ive read and well...own.
