A new TV anime is slotted for release in 2023 with an adaptation of Kawaisugi Crisis, better known as Too Cute Crisis. The manga comes from Mitsuru Kido which began in 2019 in Jump Square magazine and has six volumes out as of October 2022. We didn’t get a lot of details initially when it was announced in September 2022 but we learned it had a spring 2023 debut back in December 2022.
With an April 7th, 2023 premiere in Japan ahead of it, the folks at HIDIVE revealed their pickup of it recently and I had missed amid that they had added an English subtitled trailer for the show to draw people to it more easily and where it’s being streamed. Check out our review of the first episode.
The series features the opening theme song “Space Cat Big Bang” by Chogakusei.
The Japanese cast includes Natsumi Fujiwara as Yozora, Yumiri Hanamori as Liza Luna, Jin Ogasawara as Seiji Mukai, Saya Aizawa as Kasumi Yanagi, Ayasa Itō as Garumi Lou, Yume Miyamoto as Rasta Cole, Yūichi Nakamura as Amato Roy, Reina Kondo as Fianna Tierley, Hikaru Midorikawa as Mitsuhiko Azumi, Miyu Tomita as Sasara Azumi, Kenichi Ogata as Mikiti Furupururin, Takehito Koyasu as Shamil Naga, Kyōka Moriya as Mitra Lil, Reina Ueda as Komachi Kokage, and Nene Hieda as Nazuna Endō.
The series features the ending theme song “Nyanbori de Moffi!!” which will be performed by Dialogue+.
Plot Concept: Invading alien Liza Luna wants nothing more than to destroy planet Earth… after she gets in a little sightseeing, first. But her travels soon take her into a cat café, where the furry felines inside invade her heart just as surely as Liza invaded Earth! Destroying the world won’t be so easy now that she’s discovered the joys of kitty cats…
