- Junichi Suwabe as Nakano
- Maaya Uchida as Shiro
- Ayane Sakura as Kōenji
- Eri Kitamura as an unnamed character
Tomoaki Koshida (Zoku Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru.) is directing the anime at Doga Kobo. Yoshiko Nakamura (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Tada Never Falls in Love) is in charge of series composition and is penning the scripts. Miwa Oshima (The Story of Saiunkoku, Koihime Musō, Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA) is designing the characters. Azumi Waki and Maaya Uchida will perform the show's opening theme song "Koyoi mofumofu!!," and Waki will perform the ending theme song Moffu Moffu de Yoinoja yo."
The "healing comedy" manga centers on Nakano, an employee of an exploitative "black" company, who meets a divine fox spirit named Senko. While she looks like a young girl, Senko is in fact 800 years old. She offers to spoil Nakano as much as possible, and begins looking after him.
Rimukoro launched the manga on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website in October 2017.
