Under the ??? Dog

We have an important announcement to make today.
From now on, Under the Dog will change its title to…

Under the Prairie Dog

vol42_1

After a long period of lengthy discussions (our backs still hurt from sitting for so long), we’ve come to a conclusion that the title Under the Dog sounds too…kind of ordinary.

So we’ve decided to add the word “Prairie” to signify the vastness of the universe of UTPD and great potential that this anime project possesses. We also think it’s very much fitting to our project, since dogs are kind of everywhere. You can find them in almost any city on earth, but as for prairie dogs, you can only find them on…prairies!! (What’s more, they only live in North America!) That’s what makes them very special – a unique quality that can truly represent our work. Besides, our decision came unanimously when one of our Kinema Citrus staff murmured, “But…but…they are not even dogs…they are indeed more like squirrels!” That’s exactly what we intend to do with Under the Prairie Dog. You think it’s an anime about cute prairie dogs kissing and cuddling each other, but you can be wrong. Very wrong. We would like to teach you a moral lesson through our project: anime titles can sometimes be very misleading.

OK, we hope you enjoyed our April Fool’s Day joke.
