The TV anime adaptation was announced by Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko on December 26, 2019 which will be produced produced by Dream Shift and will be animated by Project No.9. The series will be directed by Manabu Kamikita, with Deko Akao handling series composition, and Takayuki Noguchi designing the characters.

Synopsis from Wiki Fandom: Office worker Yoshida has been crushing on his boss, Airi Gotou, for five years. Despite finally scoring a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home, only to find a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, needing a place to stay the night, attempts to seduce Yoshida. Despite rejecting her advances, he nevertheless invites her into his apartment.
The next morning, the girl, introducing herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she has run away from Hokkaido all the way to Tokyo. During her six-month spree, she continually traded sexual favors for a roof over her head. Yoshida, however, remains unswayed by her seduction. Instead, he has her do a different kind of work—one that entails washing dishes and doing laundry. And so, a touching relationship between a heartbroken adult and a runaway high school girl begins.

It began serialization online in March 2017 on Kadokawa's user-generated novel publishing website Kakuyomu.
