Description
Gotou Kakushi is a single father with a secret: he's a top-selling manga artist of a raunchy series that perhaps isn't suitable reading material for his young daughter, Hime. So he does what any doting father would do—he hides it all from her, no matter the hijinks that ensue!

A manga about manga.

Kakushigoto is a manga about manga, by an industry veteran. I expected a stronger focus on the father-daughter dynamic with gags coming second, but the story does put gags first, to the point that I found it rather exhausting when I read the volumes consecutively. The chapters meander à la slice-of-life stories - time passes, but most story arcs span <30 consecutive pages. The humor is fine, but relies heavily on dumb misunderstandings, which eventually get tiring. There's also an annoying editor character who messes everything up, and since this is a gag manga, he never gets his come-uppance, so he unfortunately simply remains annoying throughout.

Regarding the art style, I was impressed by the awesome and distinct character silhouettes & poses, but slightly let down by the rather flat faces which could only portray a limited spectrum of emotions.

The ending was decent, and does resolve some open questions (like the topic of the mother), but I wish it had been elaborated on more fully. Also, some topics from earlier on are never fully addressed: the romantic interests; the grandfather; the boxes; etc.

Finally, on the meta level, it's sobering to read someone looking back on his career as a mangaka, to learn in the final volumes that the story is coming to an end and he doesn't have any new manga work lined up (which is hardly surprising as the story ended during the Covid pandemic), and then to see no new mangas listed for him on MangaUpdates as of 2021-04. On the other hand, he did mention he wanted to use a pen name in his next work, so hopefully things worked out fine for him, after all.

I got hooked on the anime initially, and then bought the English translation, reading the last volume today.

Both are wonderful.

The gags are usually good, some brilliant, all the time building on the heartwarming love between father and daughter.

The gallery of characters surrounding the two protagonists is interesting, varied and provides a lot of the humour of the series. The art is crisp clear and striking. The dialogs often engage you in deeper thinking, which is no mean feat for a self-professed gags manga.

I didn’t know the author before, but he clearly is an old hand, and it shows in particular in the funny one-page essays that dot the volumes of the series. They are not essential to the story, but enriched a lot my appreciation of Kakushigoto.

Unfortunately the manga didn’t sell enough and it stopped at 12 volumes. The ending is wrapped up quickly but it provides proper closure. I hope more of you will enjoy it.

Finished the finale of the anime it was great. So i got curious as to how the manga is going, since the author said it's ending soon. Came to check the english chapters, but i found it a bit weird since the latest chapter (95 according to this site and others) was about naming their puppy & definitely not leading towards the conclusion. Also, the numbers repeated after chapter 52, with Vol.2 Chapter.53 having "1 - Kuroko na Tasuke" as its title/page header. Anybody know the reason behind this?
