One cannot be an ecchi mangaka and expect their young daughter to respect them for it. Kakushigoto’s protagonist, Kakushi, juggles being a great single dad to his daughter while producing ecchi manga to earn a living!
Kakushigoto is one hilarious slice of life anime unique for the wordplay in each character’s name. The writer Kōji Kumeta has really thought this one through.
The franchise’s theatrical film, Kakushigoto: Himegoto wa Nan Desu ka (Kakushigoto: What is a Secret?), released a new trailer and a key visual yesterday on its website.
The movie will premiere on June 9, 2021.
✒️ Theatrical edition theme song and ending theme decision ✒️
The theme song is flumpool “Chiisanahibi”, a song that was well received in TV anime.
Eiichi Otaki’s “Kimi wa Tennen Color”, a masterpiece loved by a wide range of generations, has been decided as the ending theme.

The visual shows Kakushi and his daughter Hime enjoying a pleasant day on a beach.
It also contains the picture of a DVD which will have the complete soundtrack of the movie.
The trailer is a monologue of Hime’s feelings regarding her parents and how much she cares about her father. At the same time, her father tries his best to keep his work a secret from her.
The movie will be different from the anime TV series as this will reveal more about Hime’s mother, who wasn’t present in the show.
Other than this, the opening and ending theme songs of the movie were also revealed. Since the fans loved the themes that were used in the show, the creators decided to use the same for the film.
Therefore, ‘Chisana Hibi’ (Small Days) by flumpool and ‘Kimi wa Tennen Shoku’ (Your Natural Colours) by Eiichi Ohtaki will serve as the opening and ending themes of the film, respectively.
The news about the film adaptation was revealed in December 2020, and fans have been excited ever since!
We cannot wait to see what Hime’s mom looks like and what wordplay Kumeta came up with for her name.
Will her name be something related to the word ‘secret’ like other Goto family members Kakushi and Hime, or will it be something else entirely???
We all know Kakushi keeps a big secret, but the surprise element is that Hime also keeps a secret from her dad. *suspense*
