The official website for the anime based on Kanata Konami's Chi's Sweet Home manga revealed on Thursday that a new 3DCG anime titled Koneko no Chi Ponponra Dairyokō (Chi's Sweet Travels) will premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliate networks on April 8 at 7:00 a.m. The anime will also air on TV Shinshu starting on April 11 at 1:59 a.m. The staff of the new anime also revealed that Wi-Fi-5 will sing the anime's theme song.
The anime introduces two new characters:
Mariya Ise as Juri, Yōhei Yamada's cousin of the same age. She lives on a farm in Hokkaido and sometimes comes to play with the Yamada family. She may seem mischievous, but she is kind at heart.
Hirara, a goldfish that Juri has given to Yōhei. Usually, it appears elegant and lovely. When people are not watching, it attacks its enemies with a power that would not be assumed of a goldfish.
The staff for the Chi's Sweet Adventure (Koneko no Chi Ponponra Daibōken) 3DCG anime previously announced at the Japan Expo 2017 event that the Chi's Sweet Adventure anime was getting a second season.
The first Chi's Sweet Adventure anime premiered in Japan in October 2016, and the series ended after 51 episodes last September. Satomi Koorogi reprised her role as Chi from the original Chi's Sweet Home anime and the Chi's New Address sequel.
The anime 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 2D 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.
