It looks like this ghostly dramedy is spiriting its way into homes next year.
Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce that Tsunami Minatsuki and illustrator Futatsuya Asu’s Dōkyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue (My Housemate is Sometimes on My Lap, Sometimes on My Head.) will get an anime TV series. A key visual, plus the main staff members were revealed for the project, which hits Japanese TV in 2019.
We break the details down below.
The image is a high-angle shot, which features lead character Mikazuki Subaru sitting on his porch with a cat. Subaru is looking up toward the sky from his perch.
Kaoru Suzuki (DIVE!!, Hellsing eps. 2, 7, 12) was tapped to direct the project at Zero-G, with Masaru Kitao (Death Note, Dances with the Dragons) providing character designs. Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Anonymous Noise) is in charge of series composition.
Tsunami Minatsuki and illustrator Futatsuya Asu’s Dōkyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue launched in the pages of Holp Shuppan’s Comic Polaris in 2015. The series currently spans four compiled volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on March 13.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:
Mystery writer Mikazuki Subaru, who isn’t good at dealing with people, finds them to be a disturbance when it comes to building his imaginary world. One day, he chances upon a stray cat and feels inspiration strike so he brings the cat home as his muse. Can watching the inexplicable behaviors of a cat form material for a novel?
Featuring perspectives from the human’s point of view as well as the cat’s.
