Manga adapts April 2015 anime about cat from Chinese astrology

The December issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Daioh magazine announced on Tuesday that Hiroma Hino's Etotama manga is approaching its climax. (Note: In Japanese, the word "climax" written out in the katakana phonetic alphabet often refers to the final chapter of a manga.)

The manga's story revolves around Nya-tan, the cat of Chinese astrology who wants to become a member of the Chinese zodiac. Nya-tan is simple and suffers from memory loss, and she tries various foolish ways to become a member. She meets Takeru Tendo, a high school student who lives alone in Akihabara, and becomes a freeloader at his house. Little by little, she gets closer to her goal.

Hino launched the manga in Dengeki Daioh in December 2013. Shirogumi and Tablier Communications are credited with the original work, Takashi Hoshi (Schäferhund) and Tōru Zekū (Trinity x Venus) are credited with the manga's original story. Kadokawa published the manga's second compiled book volume on April 24.

The manga adapts the Etotama original anime, which premiered on April 9. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Pony Canyon began releasing the series on Blu-ray on October 10.
