Kakushigoto Anime Reveals Cast, Staff, April 2020 Premiere
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January 2020 issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine revealed on Friday the cast, staff, visual, and April premiere date for the television anime adaptation of Kōji Kumeta's Kakushigoto manga. The anime's official website also began streaming a teaser video for the anime.
In addition, Kumeta provided an illustration to celebrate the anime adaptation.
Hiroshi Kamiya will reprise his role as the father Kakushi Gotō from SHAFT's earlier promotional video for the manga, but Rie Takahashi will voice the daughter Hime Gotō. Chika Anzai voiced the character in the previous video.

Yūta Murano (Brave Beats, Dream Festival!, Seven Days War) is directing the anime at Ajia-do. Takashi Aoshima (Minami-ke, Aho-Girl!, Endro~!) is writing and supervising the series' scripts. Shuuhei Yamamoto (Battle Girl High School, Between the Sky and Sea) is designing the characters. Yukari Hashimoto (March comes in like a lion, Sarazanmai) is composing the music.
The comedy manga story centers on Kakushi Gotō, who doesn't want his daughter, Hime Gotō, to know that he is a manga creator. The manga's comedy focuses on the daily life of a family with a manga artist. In addition to being a word play on the father's name, the ambiguous title can mean "Hidden Things," but can also be read as "Drawing Job."
Kumeta published a four-page introduction to the manga in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in November 2015, and then published the first full chapter in the same magazine in December 2015. The series' 10th compiled book volume shipped on November 15.
Update: Kumeta's illustration attribution corrected. Thanks, Zhou-BR.
