“Mitsuru Hongo,” known for his work on “Gunma-chan” and “Ascendance of a Bookworm,” is taking the director’s chair for this anime, produced by Shuka, acclaimed for their contributions to “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 serves as the chief animation director. The series’ music is expertly composed by Yoshikazu Suo, recognized for his work on “Magical Project S” and “The Melody of Oblivion.”
This coming-of-age narrative centers around four brothers, each possessing unique personalities and playing distinctive roles within the family dynamic. From Hayato, the eldest and primary provider, to the affectionate yet somewhat overprotective Mikoto, the gentle Minato, and the confident first-grader Gakuto, their interconnected lives form the heart of the story.
The source material, a manga serialized in Shogakukan’s shōjo manga magazine Betsucomi since 2018, has already garnered significant recognition, notably winning the shōjo category at the prestigious 66th Shogakukan Manga Prizes in 2020.
