In August 2022, an ONA (original net anime adaptation) by DLE was released on YouTube. On June 13, 2022, Sentai Filmworks licensed the series.
The female “Master” is voiced by Maaya Uchida (Liliruca Arde in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) and her dog known as “Haru the Dog” is voiced by Mutusmi Tamura (Nat in MADE IN ABYSS).
What is the plot of Doomsday With My Dog?
The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world where only one human female and her dog remain alive. The sole surviving girl and her canine companion, Haru, travel across a desolate wasteland after the destruction of civilization, but although their situation may seem bleak they make the best of things.
Haru looks after his Master’s safety and mental well-being. This may seem an impossible job for a mere dog, but Haru is no ordinary dog. Haru is in fact a “shiba inu”, who has mastered human speech. He makes sure to keep his Master feeling optimistic despite the dull world they live in and makes sure to liven things up with funny observations and his own philosophical musings.
His Master comes to realize that although there are no other humans around, her life won’t be boring as long as she has Haru by her side.
