A panel at the BICAF2019 event in Beijing announced on Sunday that the television anime adaptation of Neko Works' Nekopara game franchise will debut in January 2020 on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X. The event also announced that the anime will stream in China.
The anime's first episode previously premiered at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 6.
Yasutaka Yamamoto (Hinomaru Sumo, Valkyria Chronicles, Actually, I Am…) is directing the anime at Felix Film. Go Zappa (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN, Blend S) is the series editor, Yuichi Hirano (Alderamin on the Sky) is the character designer, and Akiyuki Tateyama (Kemono Friends, Laid-Back Camp) is the music producer.
Sekai Project ran a Kickstarter campaign in 2017 to fund an original video anime (OVA) based on the game franchise. The OVA launched on Steam in December 2017. The Kickstarter campaign also funded a 12-minute OVA of the prequel game as a stretch goal.
The game franchise's first three main games have launched on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Neko Works is developing the Nekopara Vol. 4: Neko to Patisserie no Noel game.
