Are you tired of the usual shounen, rom-com, and isekai anime genres? It’s time to try something new – the My Home Hero anime adaptation! Based on the seinen manga of the same name by Naoki Yamakawa and Masashi Asaki, this dark and suspenseful series is quickly becoming one of the most underrated anime of the year.
The story revolves around Tetsuo Tosu, an ordinary employee who discovers that his daughter, Reika, has been abused by her boyfriend Nobuto Matori. As Tetsuo investigates further, he uncovers the evil plans of Nobuto, who is not only a member of a criminal organization but also a serial killer of his ex-girlfriends. Faced with the danger of his daughter’s life, Tetsuo takes matters into his own hands and kills Nobuto.
However, disposing of the body is just the beginning of Tetsuo and his wife Kasen’s problems. They soon discover that they are being hunted by Nobuto’s organization, and they must do whatever it takes to ensure their daughter’s safety.
Unlike the typical anime series featuring teens, My Home Hero mostly showcases adult characters dealing with more mature and complicated relationships and problems. But at its core, the series portrays the extreme lengths a father will go to protect his child.
The series is set in a dark and sinister world where life is paid with life. Although it might not be for everyone, this series is perfect for fans of thriller anime series like Monster, Psycho-Pass, and Terror in Resonance.
The first episode of My Home Hero aired in Japan on April 2, and it is planned to run for 12 episodes. In Indonesia, it can be watched on Bstation at 22:00 (UTC+7). Get ready to be on the edge of your seat and witness the thrilling cat-and-mouse game between the Tosu family and the criminal organization.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of underrated anime and thriller suspense genre, make sure to add My Home Hero to your must-watch list!
