The official Twitter account for the MF Bunko J imprint's 10th Anniversary Summer School Festival confirmed on Sunday that an anime adaptation of Sou Sagara's The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat (Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko) light novel series has been green-lit. The announcement was originally made at the grand finale of the festival on the same day.
The story centers around a second-year high school boy named Yōto Yokodera. Yōto is always thinking about his "carnal desires," but no one acknowledges him as a pervert. He learns about a cat statue that supposedly grants wishes. The boy goes to pray that he will be able to express his lustful thoughts whenever and wherever he wants. At the statue, Yōto encounters Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi, a girl from his high school with her own wish — that she would not display her "real intentions" so readily.
Sagara launched the light novel series last year with illustrations by Kantoku, and Media Factory will publish the sixth volume next month. Okomeken provides art for the manga adaptation that launched in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine last year, and the manga has two volumes of its own so far. Digital Manga licensed the manga for North American release starting this October.
