Gloomy Bear Runs Wild in April 2021 TV Anime

Key visuals, cast, and preview videos revealed for upcoming adaptation inspired by Mori Chack's mascot character

Gloomy prepares to claw his owner, Pity, in a scene from the trailer for the upcoming Gloomy The Naughty Grizzly TV anime.


Gloomy Bear, a grizzly mascot character created by Osakan artist Mori Chack, is going to maul his owner in animated form beginning in April of 2021 because the "creepy kawaii", 2-meter tall wild animal is now the subject of an upcoming TV anime entitled Gloomy The Naughty Grizzly (aka Itazura no Gloomy in Japan). Preview videos and key visuals (below) have been published for the series.




Debuting in 2000, the Gloomy Bear merchandise line focuses on the relationship between Gloomy and his owner, Pity, a relationship which is "full of cuteness, violence, and surprising emotional depth". Pity loves Gloomy very much, but Gloomy is still a wild animal, so he tends to claw and bite Pity without mercy.
