The film will open in Japan in February 2020. Yu Kobayashi is starring as the feline version of the legendary samurai Sakamoto Ryōma. The television anime's Tomohiro Kawamura is once again directing the new anime at Joker Films, and Shimizu is penning the film's screenplay. Aniplex is distributing.
The television anime premiered in April 2016, and runs during the "Ten-Tele Anime" timeslot within the Tensai TV-kun variety program on Wednesdays from 6:45 p.m. to 6:54 p.m. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, and it describes the story:
The many great cats throughout Japan's history are back to strut their stuff in a new season. They continue to leave their mark on history, doing whatever they want, but what else would you expect from a cat? They get bored fast, and love to sharpen their claws and take naps. They might be scared of water and loud noises, but the amount of energy they display when they get excited is something to see! What kind of history will we see them create this time around?
Ryō Takada is supervising the television anime's series scripts and co-writing them with Kyō Shimizu. Kōichi Yamadera narrates the show, and Diana Garnet (Naruto Shippūden, Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note) sings the two most recent ending theme songs.
Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha's manga website Comic Ruelle serializes the manga, and Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha published the seventh compiled book volume in May.
