My Home Hero Anime Staff
Takashi Kamei will be directing the My Home Hero anime series while Kohei Kiyasu is in charge of the series’ script. Surprisingly, Kiyasu is more known for his voice acting rather than production history. Some of Kiyasu’s past roles include some rather prominent names including Ippo Makunouchi in Hajime no Ippo and Kaoru Kaidoh in The Prince of Tennis. His last known production role was when he was in charge of the series composition and script for Run with the Wind back in 2018.
Masatsune Noguchi (Hakushon Daimaō 2020) will be handling the character designs. Yukio Abe (Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul) will work as the art designer. Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell) is in charge of the music. And Takumi Itō (In Another World With My Smartphone) is the sound director with Kiyotaka Kawada (Date a Live, Akame ga Kill) handling sound effects.
Written by Yamakawa and illustrated by Asaki, My Home Hero began serialization in Weekly Young Magazine in 2017. The manga is currently ongoing and has released a total of 17 volumes with #18 set to release on October 6, continuing the final arc of the story that began on June 20.
My Home Hero recently surpassed 2 million copies in circulation back in June of this year. While the series doesn’t have any accolades to show for it besides its popularity, it is now Yamakawa’s second manga to be adapted into an anime with the most recent being I’m Standing on a Million Lives, which began airing in 2020 and has received two seasons so far.
