Get ready to open your door to a warm embrace of laughter, love, and domestic bliss with the upcoming BL anime “Tadaima, Okaeri” (Welcome Home). Premiering this Spring 2024, the series whisks viewers into the daily life of the Fujiyoshi family, a delightful tapestry woven with the sweet anxieties of a stay-at-home husband, the unwavering support of his salaryman husband, and the infectious joy of their toddler son.
The newly released teaser trailer offers a tantalizing glimpse into their world. We see Masaki, voiced by the ever-endearing Atsushi Tamaru, wrestling with the self-doubt of a househusband who worries he’s not “enough.” Toshiyuki Morikawa brings a captivating depth to Hiromu, the charismatic breadwinner who anchors the family with unwavering love and playful gestures. And amidst it all, Atsumi Tanezaki’s innocent chirps as Hikari remind us of the unadulterated joy of childhood wonder.
But “Tadaima, Okaeri” is more than just adorable moments. The trailer hints at deeper themes. We see Masaki struggling with societal expectations, yearning for validation outside the walls of his domestic haven. Hiromu, though supportive, carries the weight of responsibility, his gentle smiles occasionally flickering with unspoken anxieties. And even in the idyllic world of the Fujiyoshi family, shadows of past relationships threaten to intrude, stirring up emotional turmoil.
This poignant balance between everyday sweetness and simmering complexities promises a story that resonates deeply. Fans of “Sasaki and Miyano” and “SUPER LOVERS” will recognize the touch of Director Shinji Ishihira, who imbues the narrative with emotional authenticity and heart-wrenching tenderness. Series composition by Yoshiko Nakamura (“Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun“) and Mina Osawa (“Given”) adds a layer of humor and warmth, ensuring the emotional rollercoaster is punctuated with delightful splashes of laughter.
Crunchyroll‘s acquisition of the streaming rights means international audiences can join the Fujiyoshi family in the comfort of their own homes.
