Mori no Kuma-san, Touminchuu. is a boys' love manga series written and illustrated by Haruchika. It has been serialized on Suiseisha's Glanz BL comics since June 8, 2020.

The story features the bear Nowa (CV: Kazuyuki Okitsu) who lives in a forest with the stray puppy Airi (CV: Kōhei Amasaki). In addition to the leading couple, we have the civet Kou (CV: Kengo Kawanishi) and the raven Watari (CV: Seiichirō Yamashita). They are the same cast who voice the drama CD.

Since this series contains mature scenes, the TV (on-air) version will be an abridged form of the full version which will be made available via the premium edition, to be distributed by AnimeFesta in June 2022.

Below are initial character designs for Airi (CV: Kōhei Amasaki).
