Shinji Ishihira (Sasaki and Miyano, Super Lovers, Fairy Tail) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN. Yoshiko Nakamura (Super Lovers, Sasaki and Miyano) is in charge of the series scripts. Mina Ōsawa (School Babysitters, Given, I★CHU: Halfway Through The Idol ) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. MADKID performs the anime's opening theme song "Futatsu no Kotoba" (Two Words).

The anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on April 8 at 24:30 (effectively, April 9 at 12:30 a.m. or April 8 at 11:30 a.m. EDT), and it will also run on MBS, BS NTV, and Animax. Crunchyroll will stream the anime.

The manga's story tells the daily life of Masaki Fujiyoshi, a stay-at-home husband who has no self-confidence, his elite salaryman husband Hiromu, and their two year old son Hikari. Together, they overcome life's joy and sadness, and become more of a "family" everyday.

The manga launched in Fusion Product's THE OMEGAVERSE PROJECT e-book anthology in 2016. Fusion Product published the manga's fourth volume titled Tadaima, Okaeri ーHitoyasumiー (I'm Home, Welcome Back ーBreatherー) in April 2019. Ichikawa also announced along with the manga's anime adaptation, that the manga will resume, and will release a fifth volume soon.
