A website has launched to announce that a television anime adaptation of Shō Izumi's Sweet Punishment (Amai Chōbatsu ~Watashi wa Kanshu Senyō Pet) manga has been green-lit.

"Kneel before Aki Myojin." The story is set in a prison in the near future year of "20XX." It revolves around Hina Saotome — an office lady imprisoned despite her innocence — and the elegant yet sadistic guard Aki Myojin. Hina's heart and body are at the mercy of Myojin's "cruel yet sweet domination" from physical examinations to even her lover's prison visits. The subtitle of the original manga's title translates as "I Am the Guard's Private Pet."

The anime shorts will premiere on Sunday, April 1 at 25:00 (effectively Monday, April 2 at 1:00 a.m.) on Tokyo MX and other channels. The "complete version" of the anime with "additional explicit scenes" will premiere on ComicFesta's Anime Zone streaming service on Sunday, April 1 at 24:00 (effectively Monday, April 2 at midnight).

The cast for the "regular version" stars:

Yoshitaka Yamaya as Aki Myojin, the head guard

Marie Miyake as Hina Saotome, an office lady imprisoned despite being innocent

Yoshiki Nakajima as Yamato Higa, a deputy boss of the Kenzaki yakuza organization who goes all out to protect Hina

Kōdai Sakai as Kiyonori Yakumo, Hina's lover

Haruki Ishiya as Tsuyoshi Samejima, the boss of the Kenzaki yakuza organization

Takafumi Maeuchi as Takeru Igarashi, a Kenzaki yakuza organization member

Mitsutaka Noshitani (Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita) is the director, storyboarder, and technical director of the anime at Magic Bus. Kazuhiro Toda (Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita) is supervising and writing the series scripts, and "Nanashi" is designing the characters. Hisayoshi Hirasawa is directing the sound at Cloud22. Picante Circus is producing the project, which is presented by the manga's publisher Suiseisha.

HAKUEI (Penicillin) is contributing the end card sequence for the anime's first episode.

Suiseisha's Clair TL Comics imprint will publish the third manga volume on February 18. Suiseisha and Picante Circus are also presenting and producing the television anime of Makana's 25-Sai no Joshi Kōsei: Kodomo ni wa Oshierarenai Koto Shite Yaru yo (25-Year-Old High School Girl: I'll Do What Can't Be Taught to Children) manga, a January anime that also has regular and complete versions with different casts.
