Here is an overview of the story, via its official website:
You take over the coffee shop and house of your late grandfather.
“I want to continue my dear grandfather’s coffee shop,” you thought, but were at a loss as to how. That’s when a certain school suggested, “Why not take into this lovely shop some knowledgeable live-in trainees?” Imploringly, you accepted the offer, but the trainees that appeared before you were not human trainees, but four carnivorous cats?!
Granted, you have heard that humanoid cat clerks are not all that uncommon these days, though…
Your story of running a coffee shop with four cats is about to begin!
The game’s cast includes:
- Laurier (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa)
- Fennel (voiced by Wataru Komada)
- Sage (voiced by Yuuichirou Umehara)
- Dill (voiced by Junya Enoki)
