Adaptation of Sou Sagara's light novel series gets home video release this year

North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it has licensed The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat. (Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko. or HENNEKO) television anime series. The company will release the series digitally and then on home video later this year. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the series outside of Japan as it airs.

Sou Sagara's original light novels center around a second-year high school boy named Yōto Yokodera (played by Yuuki Kaji). Yōto is always thinking about his "carnal desires," but no one acknowledges him as a pervert. He learns about a cat statue that supposedly grants wishes. The boy goes to pray that he will be able to express his lustful thoughts whenever and wherever he wants. At the statue, Yōto encounters Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi (Yui Ogura), a girl from his high school with her own wish — that she would not display her "real intentions" so readily.

Youhei Suzuki (episode director on Karin, Kimikiss pure rouge, Nodame Cantabile: Finale) is making his debut as the director of a full series at J.C. Staff. Haruko Iizuka (Little Busters!, Inu X Boku Secret Service, Tamayura) is adapting Kantoku's original character illustrations from the light novel series for the anime. Michiko Itou (Ōkami-san & Her Seven Companions, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Twin Angel: Twinkle Paradise) is in charge of the series scripts. The show will also co-star Kaori Ishihara as Azusa Azuki and Yukari Tamura as The King of Steel.

Digital Manga published the first volume of Okomeken's manga adaptation in North America in November.
