In a Land of Pure Imagination
Haru is just an ordinary high school girl — until the day she rescues a cat from becoming roadkill. But the cat is actually the Prince of the Cat Kingdom, who shows his gratitude to Haru by offering to marry her. And by ‘offering’, I mean Haru’s totally forced to, and now she’s trapped in the Cat Kingdom. But lucky for her, Haru has a certain top hat-wearing aristocat to help her get back home.

I don’t think I can adequately prepare you for just how many cats this movie has, because there’s really no way to overstate it. It’s not nearly as distracting as tanuki balls, but it’s still noticeable. The movie itself is a silly, fun, and original tale of how a young girl finds her inner confidence — and the debonair talking cat that helps her do so.
