The upcoming The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today anime adaptation has received a new, two-minute trailer and details about its opening song.
The opening theme is titled “Uryou Mon ni wa Fuku Kitaru,” and its artist is singer-songwriter somei.
The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today will premiere on July 7 in Japan. It is based on the manga by Hitsuji Yamada, which Seven Seas Entertainment describes 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!
The anime’s staff includes Susumu Kudou (Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood director) as chief director with Katsumasa Yokomine (Scar on the Praeter, W’z episode director and stroyboarder) as director, Tamazou Yanagi (Scar on the Praeter, W’z) as scriptwriter, and Takayuki Uchida (W’z) as character designer. GoHands is the animation production company and is also credited for the series composition.
The cast includes Hiroki Yasumoto as Yukichi and Yui Ishikawa as Saku Fukuzawa, Ai Kakuma as Yuri Shibasaki, Katsuyuki Konishi as Kaoru Orizuka, M.A.O as Rio Nishina, Miyu Irino as Tenchou, and Ayana Taketatsu as Yume.
The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today manga first began serialization on Kodansha’s Suiyoubi no Sirius web manga page on Nico Nico Seiga in 2018. Serialization in Monthly Shonen Sirius followed in October 2021. Seven tankoubon volumes have been released as of February 2023.
Kudou, Yokomine, Yanagi, and Uchida are also involved in the adaptation of The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses, another GoHands production that is set for a July premiere.
