This year's eighth issue (released on January 24) of Kodansha's Morning magazine has announced that Kanata Konami's Chi's Sweet Home cat manga will be adapted into a television anime series this spring. The story centers around a kitten who gets lost after walking out into the real world for the first time. A boy named Yōhei Yamada discovers her, but the Yamada family's apartment building prohibits pets. After failing to find a new home, the Yamadas decide to defy the rules and raise Chi themselves. Most of Chi's coming-of-age stories revolve around the Yamadas or the cats, dogs, and the occasional rabbit that live in the neighborhood.
Four volumes have been published of the manga since it began in Morning in 2004. In an unusual move for Japanese manga, Kodansha prints the magazine installments in black-and-white, but adds color to all the pages in the compiled volumes. The anime series will run on TV Tokyo and its affiliate stations. More details will be provided in the next issue of Morning, which ships on January 31.
