Shogakukan announced on Monday that Opūnokyōdai's Ore, Tsushima cat manga is getting a television anime that will premiere this summer.
The anime will star Akio Ohtsuka (One Piece's Blackbeard, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex's Batou) as the cat Tsushima (first visual below) and Mayumi Tanaka (One Piece's Luffy) as the elderly female character named Ojii-chan (grandfather, second visual below).
Fanworks (Aggressive Retsuko) and Space Neko Company (Pop Team Epic, Gal & Dino) are producing the anime. Jun Aoki (Pop Team Epic, Gal & Dino) is directing the anime.
The manga centers on a woman who is getting on in years, but all her cats think she's a man so they call her Ojii-chan. One day a brazen cat named Tsushima appears in Ojii-chan's yard.
Shogakukan published the manga's third volume on October 22. An anime fanbook will release in June.
