Meet Setsu-Chan, Japan's Amazing New "Jekyll And Hyde" Cat

Setsu-chan is the biggest new cat to come out of Japan in half a decade. By day, he is the sweetest little guy you'll ever meet. But at night...

Posted on

This is Setsu-chan, a beautiful boy with a face that could launch at minimum a few hundred ships.

But behind those beautiful blue eyes lurks a dark and terrible secret ...

When Setsu-chan begins to fall asleep, something changes inside him...

And his beautiful face begins a transformation from light...

Into darkness.

From wide-eyed joy...

To sinister corruption.

From great-hearted generosity...

Into devious, plotting malice.

In one earthly soul, Setsu-chan embodies the deep mysteries of existence.

He is Yin...

And he is Yang.

He is Jekyll...

And he is Hyde.

He is the light in the darkness...

And he is the shadow in the daytime.

At times he is the very goodness that burns in the hearts of saints...

At times he is, well, kind of medium. Just average. Not really good or bad? A regular cat with maybe just a few evil thoughts but nothing spectacular.

And at times he is the infinitely dark desire behind every good intention.

But somehow, inexplicably...

...he is still super cute and awesome no matter which face he's wearing?

And that is the mystery of Setsu-chan.

Japan's awesome new superstar cat.

The very embodiment of life's greatest lesson: that you can't have one...

Without the other.
