About

Izutsumi is a character in the manga and anime series Delicious in Dungeon. She is depicted as a beast man due to a curse placed upon her that gives her the features of a cat. The character has inspired numerous memes and fan art since her debut in the manga.

Origin

Izutsumi, a girl with a curse put upon her that gives her the features of a cat, debuts in Chapter 32 of the Delicious in Dungeon manga, which was released on April 15th, 2017.[2] She is initially a member of the side character Shuro's party.[1] She later breaks off from Shuro's party and joins the main character Laios' party with the hopes their journey will lead her to discover a way to break the curse put upon her.
