That’s all the intel that’s been released for now. Further info like staff, cast, and production studio will follow, with the anime itself premiering sometime in 2023.


The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today is distributed in North America by Seven Seas Entertainment, who summarize it thus:


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!


Volume 6 of the manga comes out in Japan on June 9, with a tie-in recipe book coming out on the same day.
