posted on 2013-05-09 12:22 EDT by Egan Loo
The absurd mystery comedy centers around Kazuhito Harumi, a high school boy who is obsessed with reading books. One day, he is killed in the middle of a robbery — and resurrected as a dachshund dog. Unable to read in his new form, the hapless Kazuhito now belongs to Kirihime Natsuno, a sadistic novelist who uses scissors on Kazuhito to abuse him.
The lead cast are reprising their roles from last year's drama CD:
Marina Inoue (High School of the Dead's Rei Miyamoto, Haganai's Yozora Mikazuki) as Kirihime Natsuno
Takahiro Sakurai (Berserk film's Griffith, Code Geass' Suzaku, NAKAIMO's Shōgo Mikadono) as Kazuhito Harumi
Kana Asumi as Kazuhito's sister Madoka Harumi
Shizuka Itou as Kirihime's brilliant editor Suzuna Hiiragi
Ai Kakuma as Kazuhito's classmate Hami Ohsawa
Yū Serizawa as the idol author Maxi Akizuki
Wataru Hatano as the pet shop manager Kiyoshi Inukai
Maaya Uchida and Hiromi igarashi as Kazuhito's former classmate Sakura Honda and her little sister Yayoi
Momiji Himehagi (voice not revealed yet)
Chiwa Saito as the maid Sachi Moribe
Shunsuke Sarai launched the novel series with illustrations by Tetsuhiro Nabeshima in 2011, and Enterbrain's Famitsu Bunko imprint will publish the sixth volume on January 30. Along with a short story volume, the novel series will have 300,000 copies in print.
The story earned an honor in the Entame Taishō awards' novel category. Kamon Ooba launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine last May.
