Lovely Muco (Japanese: いとしのムーコ Hepburn: Itoshi no Mūko) is a Japanese manga written and drawn by Takayuki Mizushina. It tells the story of Muco, the Shiba Inu[3] of glassblower Komatsu-san.


Mizushina first published Lovely Muco in Evening, a magazine by Kodansha.[4] Two years later, Japanese bookstore workers voted it the sixth in the list of most recommended manga.[5] Eight volumes have been published.[4]


In 2013 and 2014, a short anime based on the manga by Doga Kobo was used as interstitials on the Fuji TV programme Non-Stop!. A separate anime series started airing on October 3, 2015.[6]
