The official website for the television anime adaptation of the Remaster Edition of Ranjō Miyake’s Pet manga is listing that the anime will premiere this fall.
The psychic suspense story revolves around people who possess the ability to infiltrate people’s minds and manipulate memories. Their powers have been used in the underworld for covering up incidents, assassinations, and other deeds. These powers can not only destroy other people’s spirits, but also corrupt the users’ own hearts at the same time. The users had to protect their fragile and insecure hearts, as if chained to each other. They are called “pets” out of fear and hatred.
Miyake serialized the manga in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine, and then Enterbrain (now Kadokawa) published a Remaster Edition in five volumes in 2009. A stage play, Pet: Kowareta Suisō (The Broken Water Tank), ran in Tokyo from December 5-9. A second stage play, Pet: Niji no Aru Basho (The Place Where the Rainbow Is), will run for nine performances at the Kanda Myojin Hall in Tokyo from July 29 through August 4.
The anime stars:
Keisuke Ueda as Hiroki
Kishō Taniyama as Tsukasa
Yuuki Ono as Satoru
Yasuyuki Kase as Hayashi
