TV anime adaptation of Ranjō Miyake’s (三宅亂丈) psychic thriller manga “pet” (ペット) streams its first PV. The anime will premiere in January 2020.
The series was originally scheduled to premiere in October 2019, but it was delayed to January 2020. It will be directed by “Durarara!!” director Takahiro Omori (大森 貴弘) and written by Cowboy Bebop script writer Sadayuki Murai (村井さだゆき), with animation by Geno Studio. Junichi Hayama (羽山 淳一) is handling the character designs.
In a world where some have the power to enter people’s minds, there’s also a danger. The power of controlling memories can be used as a weapon or tool. Mysteries can be erased, minds can be assassinated and destroyed. However, this power can backfire and eat up one’s heart.
To counter it, chains are used to lock and protect each other’s weak and dangerous heart. From one’s growing fear and disdain, they’re consequently called “Pet.”
