The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today is based on the manga by Hitsuji Yamada. It originally began serialization on Kodansha’s Suiyoubi no Sirius web manga page on Nico Nico Seiga in 2018. Serialization in Monthly Shounen Sirius began in October 2021. The anime’s key visual and release date reveal come on the release date of the manga’s seventh tankoubon volume.
Seven Seas Entertainment describes the series as:
Saku is an ordinary young woman who works long hours and lives alone with her cat, Yukichi. Yukichi, however, is not an ordinary house cat. For one, the temperamental feline towers over Saku and walks around on two legs. Instead of playing with toy mice, he scours supermarket flyers for good deals and keeps the house spotless. With a pet like that, it’s hard to tell who’s taking care of who!
