Abstract

The anime story of TAMALA 2010 begins in Verona, Italy in the year 1436 of the CatEarth calendar. A cat postman from a secret postal network drops by someone’s home only to leave the cryptic message: “Wait just a moment longer." Meanwhile, our cat heroine Tamala is living in Tokyo in the year 2010, uncannily repeating the same phrase and dreaming of her home on Orion: “Wait just a moment longer."
