Studio Colorido's Original Film Nakitai Watashi wa Neko wo Kaburu Releases Full Trailer featuring Theme Song

The official website for Studio Colorido's second original anime feature film Nakitai Watashi wa Neko wo Kaburu (Wanting to Cry, I Put on a Cat) has posted a main visual and a 60-second full trailer featuring the theme song "Hana ni Bourei" (A Ghost to Flowers) performed by two-member unit Yorushika.
It is a romantic fantasy story set in Tokoname-city in Aichi Prefecture. The protagonist is an eccentric second-year junior high school student Miyo Sasaki (CV: Mirai Shida), nicknamed "Muge (Mugendai Nazo Ningen/Infinite Mystery Person)." She has tried to confess her love to her beloved classmate Kento Hinode (Natsuki Hanae), but she has been completely ignored. The only way she can be around him is to be a cat. While she can be with him only when she transforms into a cat, the line between herself as a human and herself as a cat gradually gets blurred.
In this full trailer, Muge, who transformed into a cat with the power of a mysterious mask, is loved by Hinode, as a cat named Taro, and the mysterious world of the cats who stopped being human is introduced with the theme song by Yorushika.
In addition, Koichi Yamadera (Spike Spiegel in Cowboy Bebop) is newly cast as the cat owner of a shop who holds the key of the story, along with Japanese comedian Hiroaki Ogi (Ogiyahagi) as the protagonists' homeroom teacher at high school, Kusunoki.
