Japan 2015 85 mins.

The beloved cat/samurai duo that charmed audiences in Samurai Cat are back in an adventure which finds our heroes Tamanojo (cat) and Madarame (samurai, Kazuki Kitamura of Thermae Romae and Kill Bill fame) marooned on the remote island of Shikokou after Madarame goes out in search of work—turns out being a “cat person” doesn’t pay the bills in feudal Japan. When the not-so-fearless pair begin searching the island, they discover a local tribe that immediately starts to worship Tamanojo as a god, and will do anything to make her theirs—forever. But will Madarame roll over so easily?
