1st season streaming on Anime Strike ends in September

The staff for the Chi's Sweet Adventure (Koneko no Chi Ponponra Daibōken) 3DCG anime announced at the Japan Expo 2017 event in France on Friday that the anime is getting a second season.

Amazon U.S. began streaming the first series on its Anime Strike service in January.

The first Chi's Sweet Adventure anime premiered in Japan last October, and the ongoing series will end in September. Satomi Koorogi reprised her role as Chi from the original Chi's Sweet Home anime and the Chi's New Address sequel.

Chi's Sweet Adventure is based on Kanata Konami's Chi's Sweet Home manga. The manga centers around a kitten who gets lost after walking out into the real world for the first time. A boy named Yōhei Yamada discovers her, but the Yamada family's apartment building prohibits pets. After failing to find a new home, the Yamadas decide to defy the rules and raise Chi themselves. Most of Chi's coming-of-age stories revolve around the Yamadas or the cats, dogs, and the occasional rabbit that live in the neighborhood.

Konami launched the series in Morning in 2004, and she ended the manga in the magazine in June 2015. Kodansha shipped the 12th and final volume in Japan in the same month.

Vertical licensed the manga in 2009, and the company released the 12th volume in November 2015. The company is rereleasing the series in three-in-one omnibus format.

The manga inspired two television anime series in 2008 and 2009. Crunchyroll streamed the second television anime series, titled Chi's New Address, in various countries as it aired in Japan. Discotek Media licensed both seasons and released them on DVD.
