Baka neko

fub wrote about an anime with a youkai (Japanese magical monster), which was originally a cat before it transformed.

A Japanese magical cat monster is also known as a Bakeneko

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakeneko

In the anime Fruits Basket, Kyo magically turns into a cat whenever he gets hugged.



Instead of "Bakeneko", they refer to him as "Baka Neko", or "stupid cat".

I am embarassed at how many years it took me to get this pun.
