NHK recently announced that the eagerly anticipated television adaptation of Saya Miyauchi’s manga, “Dog Signal,” is set to premiere on October 22 at 5:00 p.m. (4:00 a.m. EDT) on the NHK Educational channel.
Directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, known for works like “Spy×Family” and the 1996 version of “Rurouni Kenshin,” this anime is poised to capture the hearts of viewers.
The story revolves around Miyu Samura, a novice dog trainer thrust into pet parenthood when his ex-girlfriend leaves him with a dog he knows little about caring for.
Miyu’s life takes a dramatic turn when he crosses paths with Shinichirō Niwa, an experienced dog trainer. Under Shinichirō’s guidance, the uncertain Miyu embarks on a journey of transformation.
Along the way, he encounters Ritsuka Izumi, a skilled pet groomer, and Suzunosuke Kubō, a knowledgeable veterinarian, as Shinichirō introduces him to a world of newfound possibilities.
Saya Miyauchi’s manga first graced the pages of Kadokawa’s Comic Bridge website in 2018, gaining popularity over the years. As anticipation builds, Kadokawa is set to release the manga’s 10th volume on October 6.
Notably, Miyauchi herself brings authenticity to the story, drawing from her own experience as a pet groomer.
