Butareba: The Story of a Man Turned Into a Pig revealed a character trailer for the titular pig, voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka. Project No.9 is animating the series, which will premiere on October 7. Last week, Jess was introduced in her own trailer.
Masayuki Takahashi is directing the Butareba anime, with Deko Akao on the series composition. Susumu Watanabe is in charge of the character designs. Kenichiro Suehiro and Mayuko are composing the music. The theme songs are “Watashi ga Warau Wake ha” by ASCA as the opening and “Hitorijanaiyo” by Myuk as the ending.
The Buta no Liver (Heat the Pig Liver, Butareba: The Story of a Man Turned Into a Pig) anime is based on an isekai light novel written by Takuma Sakai and illustrated by Asagi Tohsaka. The light novel began serialization in 2020, and a manga adaptation is currently ongoing as well.
The plot follows an unappealing otaku who reincarnates as a pig, after passing out while eating raw pig liver. In the new world, he meets Jess, a girl who can read minds. Jess accepts him for who he is, but she does plan on eating him eventually. However, she is in danger, and Pig is the only one who can save her while using his new skillset which includes a refined sense of smell.
