‘Kakushigoto’ revolves around a mangaka named Gotou Kakushi who illustrates dirty adult manga, but he tries his best to keep this a secret from his daughter, Hime. There are times when she almost manages to get her hands on his adult illustrations, but he somehow gets them away from her in the nick of time. What follows is a hilarious and heart-warming tale that highlights the relationship between a father and daughter.
Kakushi Gotou is the titular character of the show who is a pretty well-known mangaka. His current work, titled “Kaze no Taitsu” (Wind’s Tights), is a manga brimming with adult comedy and is being serialized in the Weekly Shounen Magazine. As much as he loves what he does, he hates the fact that the stuff he writes is not suitable for his daughter. So he tries his best to keep his current manga a secret from her.
Hime is Kaushshi’s daughter who is a 4th-year primary school student. There are times when she somehow ends up reading her father’s stuff, but for some reason, she remains to be naive towards it. She really cares for her father and proves to be quite a thoughtful daughter.
