Mascot line Tama and Friends is preparing for big adventure away from home in next month’s Uchitama?!, and a new PV gives us more glimpses at what the cat and his buddies get up to away from home.
The new series transforms the dogs and cats into people, and follows the misadventures of Tama and his best friend Pochi as he attempts to find his way home. New clips show both the humanized and original mascot versions of the character in action.

The new PV also reveals that the show’s voice actors will be singing the ending theme in character, with a new song closing out every episode. Episode 1 will end with “Hidamari wo Sagashite” (“Searching for a Sunny Spot”), performed by Soma Saito as Tama. The song is composed and arranged by members of music production group TaWaRa—composed by Tokyo Sugishita and arranged by [email protected], with lyrics by hotaru.
