Aya Hirano to play puppy in June 20 special about rats searching for new home

Voice actress Aya Hirano revealed in a Sunday blog entry that she is recording a voice for the anime adaptation of Hisaki Matsuura's Kawa no Hikari (River's Light) ecological novel. Hirano will play a puppy in the anime, which the NHK public broadcaster will air on June 20. The story centers on a family of common rats who lost their home to human construction. The rats go upstream on a river in search of a new peaceful home.

The Yomiuri Shimbun paper began serializing the novei in July of 2006. The anime is part of NHK's Chikyū Eco 2009 (Earth Ecology 2009) "Save the Future" project.
