A Whisker Away Anime Film to Stream Globally on Netflix on June 18, 2020

The staff of Studio Colorido’s A Whisker Away (Nakitai Watashi wa Neko o Kaburu or Wanting to Cry, I Pretend to Be a Cat) anime film has announced that the film will debut exclusively on Netflix worldwide on June 18, 2020. The film was scheduled to open in Japan on June 5, 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The original story about finding one’s true self is set in Tokoname, Aichi and centers on Miyo “Muge” Sasaki. She is a peculiar second-year junior high student who has fallen in love with her classmate Kento Hinode. Muge resolutely pursues Hinode every day, but he takes no notice of her. Nevertheless, while carrying a secret she can tell no one, Muge continues to pursue Hinode. Muge discovers a magic mask that allows her to transform into a cat named Tarō. The magic lets Muge get close to Hinode, but eventually it may also make her unable to transform back to a human.

Junichi Sato and Tomotaka Shibayama are co-directing the film at Studio Colorido. Mari Okada is writing the script. Yorushika will perform the anime’s theme song “Hana ni Bōrei” (A Ghost for a Flower).
