The adaptation is based on the original work by Neko Works and features artwork by Tam-U. Dengeki G's Comic is published in Japan by ASCII Media Works, a division of Kadokawa. The original Nekopara visual novels are distributed by in Japan by Sekai Project, and English language versions are also available on Steam.
Nekopara was also adapted into a 2017 OAV, which is also available on Steam. Steam describes the story of Nekopara as follows:
Kashou Minaduki, the son of a long line of Japanese confection makers moved out to open his own shop "La Soleil" as a patisserie.
But upon moving out, hidden amongst his things were two of the catgirls, Chocola and Vanilla, that the family had been raising. When he tried to send them back, they begged and pleaded until he gave in and now they've opened La Soleil together.
With two catgirls who really, REALLY love their master trying their very best and occasionally failing -- a heartful comedy opens for business!
