Anime studio diomedéa announced on Thursday that it is producing a television anime adaptation of Kei Sasuga's Domestic Girlfriend (Domestic na Kanojo) manga. Maaya Uchida will play the character Rui Tachibana, while Yōko Hikasa will play Hina Tachibana.

High schooler Natsuo is hopelessly in love with his cheerful and popular teacher, Hina. However, one day at a mixer, he meets a moody girl by the name of Rui and ends up sleeping with her. Soon after, his father announces that he's getting remarried to a woman with two daughters of her own. And who shows up in tow, other than both Hina and Rui?! Natsuo's outrageous new life starts now!
