A new anime based on the manga Uchi no Shishou wa Shippo ga Nai will air in October 2022. Japanese viewers can watch the anime on Tokyo MX, MBS or BS Asahi. And international fans should stay tuned for more information about a Crunchyroll release.
Lindenfilms, the studio that animated Tokyo Revengers and Terra Formars, will be producing with Hideyo Yamamoto (Strike the Blood) directing. And from what’s shown in the series’ first PV, the studio has brought the story to life with vibrant colors and smooth animations.
Several voice cast members have already been announced, including lead characters Mameda and Bunko Daikohutei, who will be played by Mao Ichimichi (Fire Force’s Iris) and Hibiku Yamamura (Kiznaiver’s Noriko Sonozaki), respectively. The role of rival Shirara Tsubaka has also been cast by Lynn, the voice actress of Atsushi Nakajima in Bungou Stray Dogs.

What is the plot of My Master Has No Tail?
Young tanuki Mameda goes to Osaka with the explicit instruction of her family not to turn into a human being and not to associate with humans. Tanuki is known in Japanese folklore as shapeshifters – a figure of speech commonly used in anime such as Winter 2021’s Kemono Jihen. Despite her family’s wishes, Mameda turns into a human as soon as she arrives.
The big city turns out to be much less inviting than Mameda hopes. She is soon discovered as a tanuki and has to go into hiding. And with no money—other than leaves that she tries to pass off as fake money—she can’t enjoy the sights and treats Osaka has to offer.
While exploring, Mameda comes across a rakugo, Bunko, who can enchant the viewer with her spoken stories. Mesmerized by the performance, Mameda accidentally shifts back into her tanuki form and is chased by a crowd of people. Her fate looks bleak until she is rescued by Bunko.
