Crunchyroll and Kodansha Comics are releasing the series digitally, and Kodansha Comics describes the story:

Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.

The anime will star:

Yūichi Nakamura (Fairy Tail's Gray) as Kouhei Inuzuka

Rina Endō (Barakamon's Hina Kubota) as Tsumugi Inuzuka

Saori Hayami (Snow White with the Red Hair's Shirayuki) as Kotori Iida

Tarou Iwasaki (Ryoko's Case File, One Week Friends) is directing the series at TMS Entertainment with animation cooperation by Shinei Animation. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, X-Men, Bono Bono) is handling the series composition and Hiroki Harada (The Pilot's Love Song, [email protected], Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is designing the characters.

The anime will premiere in July.

Kodansha Comics has released the first four volumes digitally, and Crunchyroll is publishing new chapters as Kodansha is publishing them in Japan.

Amagakure (100 Blossoms to Love) launched the manga in Good! Afternoon in 2013, and Kodansha is publishing the manga's sixth compiled volume on March 7.
