I remember watching the original thing years ago. Might give this a try even though it's a short.

Very surprising news. Who knew Shinkai's short from years ago would get a TV short? Looking forward to it, and I hope they use the same tone/atmosphere as the original did. It was only 5 minutes but it was quite emotional.

I thought the original was all right, so I'll give this a watch. And Kana Hanazawa gives me even more of an incentive to watch this
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

That doesn't make much sense. The original was good because how it was done. Changing the length, animation or adding characters won't improve it, it will make it something completely different. I think it would be more accurate that they are making something just inspired by the original OVA. Shinkai and Tenmon are not even working on it damn it. As much as I like Hanazawa in some of her roles, her voice really doesn't suit something like that.

Feels like someone wants to ride on Shinkai's name and I'm surprised he agreed to that.

The cat is a man that's represented as a cat.
Hope they keep that aspect and regularly hint it.

This should be a nice small good series, just a girl and her cat going through life.
