Adaptation based on psychic thriller manga by Ranjou Miyake hits Japanese TV on January 06, 2020
A mind-bending new preview video has been published for pet, an upcoming TV anime adaptation based on the seinen manga by Ranjou Miyake about a group of shady individuals with the power to invade the minds of other people and alter their memories.
The new video (below) samples the ending theme of the series, a song that is entitled "image _____" and that is performed by SIREN.
The story of pet follows a group of psychics that have the power to telepathically dive into the minds of other people in order to manipulate their memories. This power is often used for hiding the evidence of crimes (such as assassination), and it corrupts the hearts of those who wield it. The people who practice this fearful ability are known as "pets", a term of loathing and contempt. Hiroki and Tsukasa are two such "pets" who share a special connection, but a secret organization known as "The Company" takes advantage of their bond and uses them for nefarious purposes.
Originally published by Shogakukan, the Pet: Remaster Edition manga is currently published in Japan by Kadokawa under their Beam Comic imprint. The pet TV anime is directed by Takahiro Omori and features animation production by Geno Studio. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X beginning on January 06, 2020, and it will also be digitally distributed on Amazon Prime Video in Japan and other world markets.
