Butareba: The Story of a Man Turned Into a Pig Anime Sets Date for Delayed Final Episode


The 12th and final episode of the Butareba: The Story of a Man Turned Into a Pig anime was previously delayed from its original airdate, citing “programming reasons,” but now it has a date in place. Fans of the series will be able to close it out when the final episode airs in Japan on February 5, 2024.

Here’s a visual to prepare everyone for the conclusion:

Based on the light novels written by Takuma Sakai and illustrated by Asagi Tohsaka, the Butareba -The Story of a Man Turned into a Pig- anime is being directed by Masayuki Takahashi (assistant director for Reborn as a Vending Machine), with Deko Akao on series composition for the project No. 9 production. 

The series streams on Crunchyroll, which describes it like so:

I am a dull otaku who lost consciousness after eating raw pork liver. When I awoke, it seemed that I had been reincarnated into another world… but I had also become a pig!

As I was rolling around in a pigsty covered in mud, Jess, a kind, angelic, beautiful girl, came to my rescue.


“Um, you don’t have to force yourself to talk. I’m able to… understand you.”

This girl who was devotedly caring after my pig-self was a member of the Yethma, and her people have the ability to read minds.

“This is bad! That means she can see through all of my lustful delusions!”

Now in Mesteria, a world run by swords and magic, a pig and a mind-reading beauty set off on their lovey-dovey fantasy adventure!

… Or do they?
