ANIPLUS Asia has described the upcoming anime series:

Kakushi Goto, an artist who draws somewhat vulgar manga. Hime, his only daughter who is currently in the fourth year of elementary school.

To Kakushi, his precious daughter means the world to him. But, the overly-doting father is hiding something from Hime. That is, his job as a manga artist.

Will his daughter come to hate him if she finds out about the “secret”?! A slightly touching family drama filled with love and laughter begins.


The anime adaptation will be directed by Yuta Murano, who previously worked in the fantasy comedy anime How Not to Summon a Demon Lord, while Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! anime scriptwriter Takashi Aoshima will handle its series composition.

Shuuhei Yamamoto, who worked on the sci-fi anime series Between the Sky and Sea, handles the character design of the upcoming series, which will be produced by Ajiado.

The Japanese voice cast will be lead by Hiroshi Kamiya (“Levi”, Attack on Titan) as “Kakushi Goto” and Rie Takahashi (“Megumin”, KONOSUBA – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) as “Hime Goto”.


ANIPLUS Asia previously announced the simulcast airing of Tower of God, which is set to premiere on April 2, airing every Thursdays at 01:00am PHT.

More simulcast anime titles are expected to be announced in the coming days.
