The March issue of Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine announced the anime adaptation of Kuzushiro's four-panel yuri gag manga. The anime is scheduled to premiere in April on TV Saitama, tvk, KBS Kyoto, and Sun TV. The magazine also announced the cast and staff for the anime:
Sumire Uesaka as Yachiyo Inugami
Nao Tōyama as Suzu Nekoyama
Yuka Ōtsubo as Aki Hiiragi
Sayaka Horino as Mikine Nezu
Aoi Fujimoto as Yukiji Ushiwaka
Erii Yamazaki as Hibari Torikai
Shoko Nagahiro as Sora Sarutobi
Hitomi Harada as Tamaki Nekoyama
Shinpei Nagai (Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga, Psycho-Pass episode director) is directing the anime at Seven. Takehiro Miura (Honey and Clover, Photo Kano key animation) is providing the character designs, while Dax Production (Fate/stay night, Durarara!!) is producing the music. Masakatsu Oomuro (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Weiß Survive) is taking the position of sound director, while Dream Creation (Chitose Get You!!, Sparrow's Hotel) is producing the anime.
The story of the original manga revolves around Suzu Nekoyama, a timid, shy tsundere (initially aloof and abrasive, but later kind-hearted) girl loves dogs, and Yachiyo Inugami, a super masochistic, air-headed, friendly girl who loves cats. One day, after a fateful meeting, the two find themselves attracted to each other. In response to Inugami's instinctive approaches, Nekoyama is always bashful. Their friend Aki has to work hard to make jabs at some of the situations of the two, and also to stop Inugami from going berserk.
Kuzushiro began the manga in 2012, and Ichijinsha shipped the second compiled volume last November.
