The official website for the television anime of Kawo Tanuki and Choco Aya's Dragon Goes House-Hunting (Dragon, Ie o Kau. or Dragon's House-Hunting) manga announced on Wednesday that the anime has cast Jouji Nakata as Lord Samuel, who will appear in the second episode on April 11.

The previously announced cast includes:

Shun Horie as Letty

Kaito Ishikawa as Dearia

Shiori Izawa as Pip

Misato Fukuen as Nell

Kent Itō as Hero

Chiaki Takahashi as Thief

Daisuke Hirakawa as White Mage

Kōtarō Nishiyama as Archer

M.A.O. as Albert

Takashi Kondō as Huey

Tesshō Genda as Letty's father

Haruki Kasugamori (Dia Horizon (Kabu), Hitorigurashi no Shōgakusei, Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) is directing the anime at Signal.MD (Napping Princess, Atom The Beginning), and Shiori Asuka (Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) and Shiori Asaka are designing the characters. Kyōhei Matsuno (You Don't Know Gunma Yet, Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.

The unit Non Stop Rabbit performs the ending theme song "Shizuka na Kaze" (Quiet Wind).

The series premiered on April 4 on Tokyo MX. Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.

Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

When a dragon fails to live up to the fearsome standards set for him, his family kicks him out. He embarks on a quest to find a new home, but soon finds that life on the road is no place for a cowardly beast of legend. In a fantasy world full of elves, dwarves, and other mythical creatures, where everyone wants a piece of him—literally!—the frustrations of house-hunting reach a whole new level.

The manga launched in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Garden magazine in December 2016. Mag Garden's parent company IG Port revealed in its quarterly financial report in October 2017 that the manga had been a particularly successful title.
