Lovely Muco! Manga by Kemono to Chat's Mizushina Gets New TV Anime

Takayuki Mizushina's manga about dog & glass-blower already inspired TV shorts

The seventh compiled volume of Takayuki Mizushina's Itoshi no Muco (Lovely Muco!) manga is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation has been green-lit for this fall.

The manga depicts the life of the pet dog Muco and his owner Komatsu, who lives in his glass-making workshop in the mountains.

The manga already inspired with two seasons of the Lovely Movie: Itoshi no Muco anime shorts on Fuji TV. The first season ran for 21 episodes from July to December 2013, and the second season ran for 22 episodes from April to October last year. Takenori Mihara helmed both seasons in Douga Kubo.

Mizushina launched the manga in Kodansha's Evening magazine in 2011. The manga ranked #6 on the 2013 list of "Top 15 Recommended Manga by Bookstores." Mizushina's earlier four-panel manga Kemono to Chat also inspired an anime.
