Manga Review of Kakushigoto: My Dad’s Secret Ambition


Series: Kakushigoto: My Dad’s Secret Ambition

US Publisher: Kodansha Comics

Mangaka: Akane Shimizu

Genre: Comedy/Slice of Life

Rating: 5/5



Kakushi Gotou is a single father with a secret: he’s a top-selling manga artist of a raunchy series that perhaps isn’t suitable reading material for his young daughter, Hime. So he does what any doting father would do—he hides it all from her, no matter the hijinks that ensue!

*I received this manga from Netgalley for an honesty review*

This series is really adorable! A single father going WAY out of his way to make sure his daughter doesn’t find out that he writes dirty manga. The stories are short and sometimes play on top of each other. I really liked how there were notes from the author on how some of the stuff has happened to him, and how it is in the manga business. You learn a bit of what goes on and at the same time, are laughing at what this father is willing to do. I have seen some spoilers from Funimation, but I am not sure of all that happens at the end of this series, but I think it might be a little sad so heads up! It is also an anime on Funimation, but I haven’t finished it yet.

If you like slice of life, definitely check out this series!
