HIDIVE has announced that it has acquired the exclusive rights to My Master Has No Tail, the anime adaptation of the manga serialized in Kodansha’s good! Afternoon magazine. The series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE in Fall 2022.

Throughout time, supernatural, shapeshifting tanuki loved playing tricks on humankind. One plucky tanuki, Mameda, is no different. But there’s one big problem. She wasn’t born in the days of yore — she was born in modern, more cynical times. How can she fulfill her mischievous tanuki destiny when supernatural hijinks are a thing of the past? She finds an angle when she meets Bunko, a master of the Japanese art of rakugo, which uses storytelling to beguile its audience. Mameda is determined to use rakugo to cast a spell on humanity, but first this tanuki trickster must convince the no-nonsense Bunko to take her on as an apprentice.

The colorful world of My Master Has No Tail has been brought to life by animation studio LIDENFILMS. It is directed by Hideyo Yamamoto with series composition from Touko Machida. The series stars Hibiku Yamamura as Bunko and M.A.O as Mameda.

The future home video release of My Master Has No Tail will be distributed by and available from Sentai Filmworks.
