King Record's Starchild Records label began streaming a television ad for the anime adaptation of Tomohiro Matsu's Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!) light novel series on Tuesday. Namco Bandai Games is also streaming the first 131-second promotional video for the PSP game version and the 47-second promotional video for the "Toy Box" smartphone app.
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.
The television anime series will premiere on January 10, 2012, and the smartphone app is slated for next month as well. The "3-meter-by-4-meter slapstick at-home adventure" PSP game will go on sale on April 26, along with a deluxe limited edition that bundles a picture drama DVD, four clear boards, four bath posters, and a life-size (about 90-centimeters-tall or three-feet-tall) Hina "air cushion."
