Plot: The original story about finding one's true self is set in Tokoname, Aichi and centers on Miyo "Muge" Sasaki. She is a peculiar second-year junior high student who has fallen in love with her classmate Kento Hinode. Muge resolutely pursues Hinode every day, but he takes no notice of her. Nevertheless, while carrying a secret she can tell no one, Muge continues to pursue Hinode. Muge discovers a magic mask that allows her to transform into a cat named Tarō. The magic lets Muge get close to Hinode, but eventually it may also make her unable to transform back to a human.
The "Neko o Kaburu" in the film's title literally means "put on a cat," but it typically functions as a figure of speech related to deception or pretending.
After A Whisker Away's, also known in Japan as Nakitai Watashi wa Neko wo Kaburu (I Want To Cry, So I'll Pretend to Be A Cat), theatrical release was postponed from June 8 due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, it was unknown when the Mari Okada (Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day) written, Studio Colorido (Pokémon: Twilight Wings) produced, and Junichi Sato (Sailor Moon) directed anime film would be released in Japanese theaters – or when Japanese theaters would ever re-open.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
