Kamiki voices cat in series premiering on January 1

The official website for TV Tokyo's live-action television series of Umi Sakurai's A Man and His Cat (Oji-sama to Neko) manga revealed on Wednesday that Ryunosuke Kamiki (your name.'s Taki, Summer Wars' Kenji) will voice Kanda's cat Fukumaru.

The series will debut on the Paravi video on demand service on January 1, as well as on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka on January 6. Masao Kusakari (seen below) will play the main character Kanda.

Keijirō Tsubakimoto and Masahiro Soejima are directing the series, with Mitsuhiko Fujiki and Date-san (Otona no Cafe entertaiment/comedy group) penning the scripts.

Square Enix Manga and Books licensed the manga, and is releasing it in English. It describes the manga:

In the pet shop he calls home, a chubby, homely cat whiles away the hours listening to coos of delight from potential pet parents...but he knows it's not him they're fussing over. Even as his price drops with each passing day, no one spares the kitty a glance. Having all but given up on life, the feline dejectedly awaits his first birthday, when he'll officially be past his sell-by date. So when an older gentleman comes into the shop and wants to take him home, the kitten himself is most shocked of all! Will the man and the cat find what they're looking for...in each other?

Sakurai launched the manga in 2017, and Square Enix published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on June 12. Square Enix Manga and Books published the second volume in English on July 14.
