It’s a new journey of the mind… or something.

Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce that the Remastered Edition of Ranjō Miyake’s Pet manga will receive an anime TV series. The first trailer and visual, as well as the core staff members were unveiled for the project.

We break the details down below:


The 30-second trailer flashes thorugh various surrealist images, starting with a fish flopping around, before cutting between various scenes in nature. The promo ends with a shot of a door in an open field, before wiping to the key visual.


The visual features shots of the eyes for the main characters.Fish can be seen swimming between them.

Series creator Ranjō Miyake drew a sketch to celebrate the news, which you can check out below.


Takahiro Ōmori (Baccano!, Durarara!!) was tapped to direct Pet at Geno Studio, with Sadayuki Murai (Boogiepop Phantom, Knights of Sidonia) taking charge of series composition. Twin Engine is listed as producing the show.

Amazon holds the digital rights to the project, and will stream the show exclusively on their platform in Japan and abroad.

Ranjō Miyake’s Pet manga originally launched in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in 2002. A five-volume Remastered edition was released by publisher Enterbrain in 2009.

Manga resource Baka-Updates describes Pet as:

The story revolves around people who possess the ability to infiltrate human minds and manipulate memories. Their powers have been used in the underworld for covering up accidents, assassinations, and all manner of crimes. But these powers not only destroy others’ spirits, but also corrupt the users’ own hearts…
