HENNEKO Anime, Novels Inspire PSP Game
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The June issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine announced on Saturday that a game adaptation of the Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko (Henneko) novel and anime series has been green-lit. The PSP game will be released in August.
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.
The anime began airing in Japan this month, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the anime for release in North America. Digital Manga published the first volume of Okomeken's manga adaptation in North America in November.
