NHK World will air Kyoto Animation's Baja's Studio (Baja no Studio) anime project on Friday. The anime will air on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. EST, and it will have repeat airings at 4:30 p.m. EST and 10:10 p.m. EST. The anime will also air on Sunday at 4:10 a.m. EST.

Programs on NHK World are streamed live.

NHK describes the anime's story:

Dreams are the stock-in-trade of KOHATA Anime Studio. The people of this fictional facility take care of Baja, a creature that looks something like a hamster. One evening, when Baja peeks outside, he sees a cat attacking his friend, a duck. Baja embarks on a mysterious nighttime mission, hoping to rescue his companion.

The anime originally bundled with tickets to Kyoto Animation and Animation DO's fan event in 2017.

Kyoto Animation announced Baja no Studio: Baja no Mita Umi (Baja's Studio: The Sea Baja Sees), a new anime project based on its mascot character Baja, in April. As with the first anime project, the studio was offering the anime to those who pre-ordered tickets to its "We're Here Now!!: It's the First Festival in Two Years" fan event with Animation DO. Kyoto Animation also planned to offer the Blu-ray Disc for sale separately at a later date. However, the studio cancelled one of the two planned fan events. Then, instead of the other fan event planned for November, the studio held a public memorial service for the victims of the Studio 1 building fire on July 18.
