Shoko Nakagawa loves her cats. She loves those furballs so damn much. She is 29 years old, single and the ‘mother’ of 10 cats. Yes that is right she lives with her 10 cats, also she is a Japanese pop idol just in case you didn’t know.
Normally a pop idols family of cats wouldn’t be newsworthy unless your into that kind of thing in which case this whole scenario would probably be pretty hot. However Shoko’s family of cats are making news today because the story of her life with these 10 felines is officially getting an anime adaptation.
Now I don’t blame any reader who feels like this is a bottom of the barrel idea for an anime series because that really is exactly what it is, but in an era where a season of anime having at least 2 halfway okay series is the norm what do you expect?
The series is to be directed by Mitsuo Hashimoto, the man behind Battle B-Daman and Bakugan Battle Brawlers, for some reason. The anime is slated to premiere March 31st and run for a year, for some reason.
So… Cats are pretty cool I guess?
