The anime's story centers on high school student Nora Handa. One day, on the way to school, Nora meets a girl named Patricia in a park. Patricia says that she is a princess of the underworld, and she has come to the surface world to destroy all life. Nora and Patricia accidentally kiss, and this act turns Nora into a black cat. Patricia takes Nora to her home, and a few days later Nora turns back into a human. However, Nora keeps turning into a cat and back into a human.
A manga adaptation of the game launched in Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine in June 2017. Additionally, Kentarō Kobayashi wrote a novel adaptation with illustrations by Itsuki Ōzora that also launched in June 2017. Hato supervised the novel.
