Summary from Manga Updates:
The story is about a second-year high school student named Junpei Kousaka, who not only hates cats but also is allergic to them. Unforunately, he happens to have a crush on a girl, Kaede Mizuno, who really loves cats. On the way home from school one day, Junpei kicks an empty can and happens to accidentally hit the Guardian Deity of Cats. Now he's able to understand cats but was practically given a curse. He has to grant 100 wishes from any cat or he'll turn into a cat himself. 

Kenn's Comment: Yes, there's an anime series for it going at the moment. It's been pretty faithful to the manga, with changes here and there. Anywho, the manga is great. It's a nice light hearted series, with good comedy, great characters, and cats (Kenn is a fan of cats). 

I like the series mainly because, while being a harem based, shounen romance,  it's not as bad as other ones out there. Yes, Kousaka's a dense idiot, but he does get stuff through his head (when it's not filled with cat allergens or Mizuno). Also, unlike other shounen romance series, it's not filled with unnecessary fanservice shots. Now, people like Andrew will argue that fanservice is always necessary, and I'll let them believe what they believe. Anywho, it's nice because it's popular without the need of the fanservice that shounen series are so saturated with.

I'd recommend the manga to anyone just looking for something good to read. Plus, the stuff they changed in the anime was fairly important to the plot, so the manga's the one you want to read for better shipping material (I'm personally rooting for Kanako).
