Netflix to Launch Japanese Animation Film 'A Whisker Away'

By Rachelle  /  29 May 2020 (Friday)

A Whisker Away is an upcoming Japanese animation film about love, magic, and cats that is set to make its debut on Netflix. The film will be launched globally on 18 June.

The film follows Miyo Sasaki (nicknamed "Muge" meaning "infinitely mysterious") who has a bright personality and is full of energy at school and at home. She is also secretly in love with her classmate Kento Hinode. Miyo tries repeatedly to get Kento's attention, but he takes no notice of her. She realizes that the only way to get close to him is to transform into a cat, but at some point, the boundary between herself and the cat becomes ambiguous, and she is forced to give up her life as a human.

The film is directed by Junichi Sato who has worked on the Sailor Moon series and has a voice cast that inlcudes Mirai Shida (the main cast of Ghibli's The Secret World of Arrietty, cast of Ghibli's The Wind Rises), Natsuki Hanae (main cast of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Tokyo Ghoul) and Koichi Yamadera (main cast of Ghost in the Shell).
