NHK announced the cast members for the television anime adaptation of Sachiko Takeuchi's General Manager of Baby (Aka-chan Honbuchō) manga on Friday. The new cast members include:

Sōma Saitō as Nishiura Showtaro Morikubo as Section Chief Amano Tetsuo Sakaguchi as Chief Sakai Miyuki Sawashiro as Miiko Houchu Ohtsuka as Chief Tachibana

Ken Yasuda voices Takeda in the anime.

The anime will premiere on NHK on March 28 at 24:40 (effectively, March 29 at 12:40 a.m.) The comedy anime has eight 5-minute episodes. NHK Enteprises, NHK, and Telecom Staff are producing the series, and NHK and Telecom Staff are also drafting it.

The manga centers on Takeda, a 47-year-old general manager of a company who one day is turned into a baby (despite his mental age remaining the same). The story centers on the antics of him and his subordinates.

Takeuchi launched the manga in Kodansha's Baby Mofu web magazine in 2017. Kodansha published the manga's third and final compiled book volume in February 2020.
