Takara Tomy’s PuniRunes Digital Pets’ TV Anime is directed by Pokémon’s Kunihiko Yuyama

On Sunday, October 2 at 9:45 am on the TV Osaka and TV Tokyo channel, a weekly television anime based on Takara Tomy’s well-known PuniRunes toy line will make its debut.

The PuniRunes toys, unlike other digital pets you may grow, also contain a hole where you can insert your finger to “touch” the soft creature within. The anime focuses on Yuka, a fourth-grader who enjoys cuddly, squishy objects, and the enigmatic, cuddly PuniRunes, who love to be coddled. The Japanese word meaning soft and squishy is “puni-puni.”
