GLOOMY is Pity's pet bear. He's a little over 6 feet and weighs as much as 2000 pomegranates. He's well trained for the most part, but he can never remember that he's not supposed to attack humans. Still, a pet owner must take ultimate responsibility for his pets. Recalling warm memories of GLOOMY as a cute bear cub, Pity tries to lead a life of peaceful co-existence with his pet bear.

Takehiro Kubota (assistant director for ID: INVADED) is directing the anime.. Original creator Chack Mori serves as as animation director and series script supervisor, Megu Yagi and Aimi Morodome as scriptwriters, Kunihiko Mita and Yumiko Abe as 3D CGI directors, Hitomi Satō as art director, and Shōta Yoshida and Toshikazu Kuno as directors of photography.

Kōichi Yamadera voices Gloomy in the series. Natsuki Hanae plays Gloomy's owner Pity.
