#NationalCatDay | Anime Characters Who Can Turn Into Cats

Japan celebrates National Cat Day on 22 February every year. The date is significant because the number 2 is pronounced as “ni” in their language, which sounds a lot like “nyan,” an onomatopoeia for cute cat noises. Today is extremely special because it’s 22-02-2022, or Nyan-Nyan-Nyan-Nyan-Nyan Day! What’s more?! 2022 is the Year of the Tiger!!

To celebrate this once in a lifetime occasion, here are some of the most memorable anime characters who can turn into cats:

1. Kyo – Fruits Basket

Kyo - Fruits Basket
Kyo, like some members of the Sohma family, is cursed to turn into an animal if she receives a hug from the opposite sex.

2. Yoruichi – Bleach

When she was introduced in the series, Yoruichi was a black cat with a male voice. A lot of anime watchers were surprised when she turned back into the cold-blooded but hot-bodied shinigami.

3. Witch Blair – Soul Eater

Witch Blair is a minor character in Soul Eater, and one of this powers is turning herself into a cat at will.

4. Kuroo – Servamp

Kuroo’s cat and human form have many things in common – above all, they’re both lazy but cute.

5. Atsushi – Bungou Stray Dogs

Tigers are cats, too! And Atsushi, the main character of Bungou Stray Dogs, can turn himself into an immortal tiger when he’s in a pinch.

Bonus: Komi-san – Komi Can’t Communicate

Komi Cat Ears - Komi-san
