Comedy manga is inspiring currently airing TV anime

Kōji Kumeta's Kakushigoto: My Dad's Secret Ambition manga will end in the August issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine on July 6. Mainichi Shimbun's Mantan Web website reported that the July issue shipped on Friday, but the magazine's official website lists the issue as shipping on Saturday.

The manga's 11th volume previously announced on March 17 that the manga will end with the 12th volume, which will ship "in June or July."

The manga's 10th volume had revealed last November that the manga only has "a little bit left."

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

Kakushi Gotou is a single father with a secret: he's a top-selling manga artist of a raunchy series that perhaps isn't suitable reading material for his young daughter, Hime. So he does what any doting father would do—he hides it all from her, no matter the hijinks that ensue!

Kumeta (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei) 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. Kodansha Comics began digitally publishing the manga on March 17.

The manga has a currently ongoing television anime adaptation by Yūta Murano and Ajia-do that premiered on April 2. Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan, and it will also stream an English dub.
