It was going to air in the Autumn 2018 anime season, but Twin Engine & Geno Studio’s anime adaptation for the series Pet has started to emerge as part of the Winter 2020 anime season line-up via the streaming service Amazon Prime Video.
Based on the 2002 manga series written and illustrated by Ranjō Miyake, Pet will be adapted by Geno Studio (Golden Kamuy, KOKKOKU) and is part of Twin Engine’s partnership with Amazon. The series will be streaming exclusively through Amazon Prime Video across all territories that have access to Prime Video’s service, including the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada.

Pet has a couple of trailers released by Twin Engine via their YouTube channel, including previews of the opening and closing theme songs. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure (Psycho-Pass, Tokyo Ghoul) will perform the opening song “Chō no Tobu Suisō” and Memai Siren (Karakuri Circus) will perform the closing song “image _____”.
About Pet (via ANN):
“There are people who possess the ability to infiltrate people’s minds and manipulate memories. Their powers have been used in the underworld for covering up incidents, assassinations, and other deeds. These powers can not only destroy other people’s spirits, but also corrupt the users’ own hearts at the same time. The users had to protect their fragile and insecure hearts, as if chained to each other. They are called “pets” out of fear and despising.”
The Twin Engine partnership with Amazon included Babylon, Dororo, Karakuri Circus, KOKKOKU: Moment by Moment, and Vinland Saga; all of which are available to stream in original Japanese audio with English subtitles if you have a Prime subscription.
