Butareba: The Story of a Man Turned into a Pig is based on the KADOKAWA light novel series written by Takuma Sakai and illustrated by Asagi Toosaka.

In this world, the now-pig protagonist encounters the kind and beautiful Jess who can read minds.

Masayuki Takahashi (Reborn as a Vending Machine, I Now Wander the Dungeon assistant director) is directing the project No.9-produced anime with Deko Akao (Noragami) as series composer and Susumu Watanabe (Cute Executive Officer) as character designer. Kenichirou Suehiro (Re: Zero) and MAYUKO (Ranking of Kings) are composing the music.
