A key visual and promotional video of the TV anime adaptation of Kyuryu Z’s Nights with a Cat were released. The anime will start airing on TOKYO MX on August 3 and on AT-X on August 4. The video also features a sneak-peek at the opening song, “Sunny Country” (日向の国) by Kashitarō Itō.
The key visual depicts Futa-kun (CV: Satoshi Hino) and Futa-kun’s younger sister, Pi-chan (CV: Atsumi Tanezaki), holding Kyuruga, the cat (CV: Ayahi Takagaki).
The story centers on a boy named Fuuta, who comes home tired at night, and all he wants to do is spend time with his cat. All the mysterious habits and mannerisms of house cats are carefully reproduced in this relaxed and cute comedy about living with an adorable furball!
In addition, a limited-time collaboration product with the confectionery brand Darroyo will go on sale on July 19. Lastly, Nights with a Cat will be exhibited at the “Nekonisto” exhibition event to be held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center Taito Kan in Tokyo on July 21, 22, and 23, with a photo spot where you can take pictures with Kyuruga, as well as other special admission offers.
