News Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! Light Novels Get Anime
posted on 2011-08-01 09:30 EDT
An anime adaptation of Tomohiro Matsu's Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!) light novel series has been green-lit. The "slapstick at-home romantic comedy" revolves around Yūta Segawa, a 19-year-old college freshman who suddenly discovers that he must be the father of three girls.
Segawa had just gotten into college and settled into his first semester with new friends, but the plane that his older sister and her husband were riding went missing. As a result, Segawa has to watch over the middle school girl Sora, the fifth-grader Miu, and the kindergartener Hina in his tiny 3-meter-by-4-meter (9-foot-by-12-foot) apartment.
Matsu also created the Mayoi Neko Overrun! light novel series and oversaw the scripts for its anime adaptation, and he wrote for the Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin anime. Matsu has written seven Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! light novel volumes since 2009, and Yuka Nakajima illustrates them. Yōhei Takemura will be adapting the story into a manga in Shueisha's Jump Square shōnen magazine on August 4, while Tomō Katō will be adapting the story into another manga called Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! ~Miu-sama no Iu Tōri!~ in Shueisha's Cookie shōjo magazine on August 26.
