Mitsuru Hongo, renowned for his work on “Gunma-chan” and “Ascendance of a Bookworm,” takes the helm as the director of this anime, which is being produced by Shuka, known for their outstanding work on “Natsume’s Book of Friends seasons 5-6.” Orie Tanaka, celebrated for her role as the animation director in “Natsume’s Book of Friends,” lends her talent to character design and assumes the pivotal role of chief animation director. The music for the series is masterfully composed by Yoshikazu Suo, recognized for his work on “Magical Project S” and “The Melody of Oblivion.”
This coming-of-age narrative revolves around four brothers, each with their unique personalities and roles in the family dynamic. From the eldest and family’s main provider, Hayato, to the affectionate yet somewhat overprotective Mikoto, the gentle Minato, and the self-assured first-grader Gakuto, their intertwined lives form the heart of the story.
The source material, a manga that has been serializing in Shogakukan’s shōjo manga magazine Betsucomi since 2018, has already achieved recognition. Notably, it claimed victory in the shōjo category at the prestigious 66th Shogakukan Manga Prizes in 2020.
