We learned back in December 2019 with the fourth volume of her manga being released that Hidekichi Matsumoto’s essay manga Inu to Neko Docchimo Katteru to Mainichi Tanoshii, aka I Enjoy Raising Both a Dog and a Cat Every Day, is getting an anime adaptation. Crunchyroll has now announced their pickup of the series with the localized name of With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun. The series is set for an October 2020 debut where it’ll be available to viewers on the service in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Kana Hanazawa as Inu-kun
- Tomokazu Sugita as Neko-sama

The series is directed by Seiji Kishi who also handled the series composition and scripts while Kazuaki Morita worked on the character designs. Team TillDawn handled the animation production.
The project started in 2017 with Kodansha Comics publishing it in print and in their Palcy magazine where it’s had over 10 million likes and 3 million retweets.
Plot Concept: A hard-working way-too-cute dog and a scary-faced but lovable cat. Living with them makes every day fun. Their owner’s days are filled with laughter and sentiment. Are you a cat-lover? A dog-lover? Or both? This anime is a present for the people out there who love both dogs and cats so much they can’t choose.
