A new promotional image in the form of a key visual has been released for the upcoming My Home Hero anime adaptation, which begins sometime this April.
Additional cast members were also announced, including Kouichi Yamadera as Shino, Katsuhiro Tokuishi as Takeda, and Mitsuhiro Sakamaki as Bin Tabata.
My Home Hero is based on the thriller manga written by Naoki Yamakawa and drawn by Masashi Asaki. It follows Tetsuo, a 47-year-old father who notices one day that his daughter Reika has been hit, but is unable to get the identity of the culprit out of her.

The key visual depicts Tetsuo’s normal life at its top third portion and the underworld that he must involve himself in to protect his family with its remaining space.
