    • In a land of cats, a long time ago,,,,,

      The felines of Kakamucho are about to have their litter boxes shaken when their new Samurai turns up and he's not quite what they expected - HE'S A DOG!

      Hank, a scrappy, wide-eyed pooch on the run, scrambles ashore with dreams of becoming a Samurai like his kitty heores. There's just one problem; he doesn't QUITE fit in. But he is the perfect pawn for a scheming warlord named Ika Chu, who is after Kakamucho;s land and needs the townscats out of his way. What better way to chase out a bunch of cats than a dog!

      Hank rolls into Kakamucho large and in charge, but is quickly taken down a peg when confronted but a hornets' nest of furious townscats - he's no Samurai, he's a dog! His only champion is Emiko, a young kitten with her own dreams of becoming a Samurai. This is going to be a lot harder than Hank Expected.

      Luckily friends and training turn up in unlikely places. Hank finds the town outcast, a catnip-addled former swordsman named Yojimbo, who gives him a crash course, literally in how to be a Samurai. With a little grit, determination, and his own canine style, Hank becomes a true Samurai and teaches his new companions a big lesson; it doesn't matter where you come from, but who you are inside.
