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 27th Kodansha Manga Award for shoujo in 2003 (shared with Hachimitsu to Clover).

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.

A female targeted manga about a boy (that appears homeless) who is taken upon by a young attractive office worker that has had a number of unfortunate events recently taken place in her life. At first, it's a comedic twists of events that are intended to attract and entertain the reader, but slowly it gets in a complicated situation, and even a reversal of circumstances... But unfortunately, to me the ending wasn't what I expected at all, despite the cliches. While I was reading the fourteenth and final volume I was expecting more than the simple plain, happily after ending... I wasn't expecting anything grand, but just a continuation from the "happily after ending" where the protagonist and his/her companion can live a cheerful, fun life, with perhaps children, and even more (like a pet dog biggrin ). Now that would be ironic and end on a really happy note. Also, on another note, while reading this, beware of some very heart-rendering moments where you might feel like you might want to kill something, thus I personally would recommend to read something light and cheerful like Yotsuba or sad and warming like My Girl (Sahara Mizu) in-between those times. Or, better yet, read the whole thing in one shot and in one-day.

i started reading after i read these reviews and then I couldn't stop. Aaaah it really is worth a read! You might think the cover looks perverted or something but their relationship is actually very pure and sweet... he's like her puppy but at times there are glimpses that she may have feelings for him. So far everything's progressing slowly, but in a peaceful, steady way, not in a boring way. It's sad and heartwarming at the same time, and of course there's cute humor too.

Entertaining, engaging to read, while upholding hilarity and the seriousness of life at the same time. Should not be passed up! The characters are just so awesome, each having their little quirks and humane characteristics in them.

And Momo is just so cute! So for that, you just have to read.

Great mangaka. Although the manga revolves around a love triangle (i despise love triangles) the story turned out great and gut wrenching at times. The dialogue and character interactions are superb and bury you deep inside the plot. At times the mangaka will use the environment in the backgrounds too enhance dialogue between two characters. Every character has their point of view and personality. This also is one of the reasons why its so gut wrenching too read it, because everyone in kimi wa pet gives realistic emotions that you as the reader get attached too. I find kimi wa pet similar to a manga called g senjou heavens door simply because both stories are perfect for the authors too display their utmost best in writing. Although the manga has many weakpoints it still remains a better read than most romance mangas i've read.

Sex, men, relationships, romance, delusions, and role playing. This manga has it all. The ending makes the journey all the more wonderful and appreciated. I loved it.
