The media service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will begin streaming the television anime adaptation of Rū Tatuki's four-panel manga Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki on January 7 at 7:00 p.m. EST under the name Poyopoyo. The slice-of-life story centers around a mysterious "spherical cat" named Poyo, its family, and the people in Poyo's everyday life. The anime will be available worldwide except in Japan.
Tatuki launched the manga in 2004, and the ninth compiled book volume shipped last February. A Nintendo 3DS game, in which the player raises and communicates with Poyo, will ship next month.
