The anime premiered on April 7 on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, BS11, and Aomori Broadcasting. The show is streaming in Japan on ABEMA and Netflix . Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs.

The anime stars:

The main cast are reprising their roles from earlier voice comics adaptations.

Masayoshi Nishida (Chikyū to no Yakusoku) is directing the anime at Gekkō. Yukie Sugawara (The Vampire Dies in No Time, Overlord, No Guns Life) is in charge of series composition, Nagisa Takahashi (key animator for Ensemble Stars!, FUUTO PI) is designing the characters, and Tomoki Hasegawa (NANA, Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?!) is composing the music.

Koresawa performs the opening theme song "Kimi ga Ojiichan Atashi ga Obaachan" (You are Grandpa I am Grandma). Mamiko Noto and Shinichirō Miki perform the ending theme song "Soitoge YO-YO!!" (Married for Life YO-YO!!).

The comedy manga centers on an old husband and wife who live a quiet life in Aomori harvesting apples. One day, they wake up and find their physical age restored to their 20s.

Araido launched the manga on pixiv in October 2019, and it has since garnered over 100 million views. The manga was ranked #6 in the Web Manga category of the sixth "Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Taishō" in 2020. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh volume on August 16. The manga will end in its eighth volume. The series has one million copies in circulation (including digital purchases).
