History WMG / TheCatReturns

Go To



Let's see, young girl due to the involvement of a magical cat, is promised in marriage to a handsome prince? Sort of the plot of WhisperOfTheHeart, eh? Except that it turns out this relationship requires her to transform into something she isn't, and in the end she escapes from it, returning to reality. If Haru's story is written by Shizuku, it would seem to be a metaphor for a not very happy ending to the first film.

[[WMG: "The Cat Returns" is a sequel to the story Shizuku was writing in "Whisper of the Heart".]]
Maybe she came up with the sequel for the Baron to help get in some extra cash before she marries Seiji, so this time she wrote about the Cat Kingdom with Haru playing Shizuku's AuthorAvatar. She also wrote in Moon as Muto because she'd grown fond of the real life cat and decided to include him in the Baron's adventures.


[[WMG: The Cat King has gone insane after his Queen died.]]
We never saw Prince Lune's mother so she must have passed on some time ago and this devastated the King very much. His attempt to get his son married as soon as possible is probably because he wanted another woman in the family to love. [[UnfortunateImplications Not implying anything here]] but he thought it would make him happy. That's why when his son rejected Haru, the king TookAThirdOption and tried to marry her instead. [[spoiler: In the end, he decided to retire...]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Only certain cats have the ability to speak.]]
When we first see the cats that live in the Cat Kingdom, specifically the light pink and blue couple, we can only hear them meow instead of speak. This might be because it's a gift acquired after living in the Cat Kingdom for a while, or only those somehow connected to the Royals, be it blood relation or servant to them, are able to speak. While Muta can speak, we don't know his past other than eating all the fish, so either of these theories could be correct. Baron's a Creation, and not an actual cat, so he doesn't count.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: All cats in the human world are outcasts/deserters from the Cat Kingdom.]]
In the scene where the Cat King arrives to thank Haru, the cats living on the street are clearly not happy to see him. Muta is a criminal in the Cat Kingdom, apparently having left by choice after wreaking havoc, and he doesn't like the king. All the cats of the human world have seen through the Cat King and left to raise their families free of his influence.
