The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today Anime Drops New DetailsAw, poor cat! In May 2022, we learned Hitsuji Yamada’s manga The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today was getting the anime treatment. Today we learned more details about the anime adaptation, including a debut month, plus who’s starring in and working on it.

First off: July 2023 is when we can expect to see the masterful but depressed neko on screen.

Now to the cast: Hiroki Yasumoto will voice the cat, whose name is Yukichi, and Yui Ishikawa will voice office worker Saku Fukuzawa.

Finally, here’s the staff:

Chief director: Susumu Kudo (Coppelion)
Director: Katsumasa Yokomine (Coppelion episode director)
Studio: GoHands
Scripts: Tamazo Yanagi (Hand Shakers)
Character designs: Takayuki Uchida (Hand Shakers)

Here’s how Seven Seas describes Hitsuji Yamada’s The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today manga:

When Saku took in a stray black cat, she never expected that he would become the equivalent of a housekeeping life partner. But Yukichi, a giant cat who towers over Saku, is not your ordinary feline. He takes great pride in his culinary skills, and a good sale at the supermarket always gets his whiskers twitching. Saku may not have her act together yet, but at least she has Yukichi!
