Cute My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog key visual has Usagi, Karen and Mike in school swimsuits at the pool

While the upcoming My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog anime series is known for its ecchi-ness, the latest key visual is actually more cute than risqué.

The new My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog key visual features the anime’s three main girls — Usagi, Karen and Mike — and, although still at school, this time they are showing off their school swimsuits while lounging around at the pool.


Typical boring Japanese school suits that the three girls still manage to look incredibly attractive in.

The anime is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Itsutsuse.

A manga that has been published Shōnen Magazine R since late 2020, and has been so popular it already has six volumes out in Japanese.



The upcoming My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog anime stars Saya Aizawa (Engage Kiss) as protagonist and new dog-owner Karen Inukai, Yurie Koxakai (Koikimo) as Karen’s friend Usagi Tsukishiro, Mayu Sagara (Puraore! Pride of Orange) who voices Mike Nekotani, and Shuuichirou Umeda (Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie) as Pochita, the aforementioned dog himself.

Takashi Ando is directing, with Kazuaki Morita as both the animation director and in charge of character designs.

Quad is producing the anime.

The first episode of My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog will premiere on January 6, 2023.

Meanwhile, watch the trailer introducing all four of the main characters below.
