Brand New Animal Anime Key VisualTrigger describes the show as:

In the 21st century, animal-humans who’d hidden themselves in the shadows of history have begun to reveal themselves to the world.

Michiru Kagemori, who had lived her life as a normal human, suddenly transforms into a tanuki-human hybrid. She runs away, escaping the humans to find refuge in “Anima City,” a special refuge for animal-humans that was created to allow animal-humans to live as themselves.

It is here that Michiru meets Shirou Ogami, a wolf-human who hates humankind. It’s through Shirou that Michiru begins ot learn of the life, the joys, and the struggles of her fellow animal-humans. As the two try to unravel the mystery of why Michiru suddenly transformed, Michiru and Ogami find themselves drwn into a major incident.

Brand New Animal will air in April 2020 on Fuji TV’s +Ultra block.

Yoh Yoshinari (Gurren Lagann Parallel Works, Little Witch Academia) will direct the project at studio Trigger, while Kazuki Nakashima (Kill la Kill, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)takes charge of series composition.
