Hiroshi Kamiya (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Noragami) is reprising his role as the father Kakushi Gotou from the 2016 promotional video produced by Shaft. Voice actress Rie Takahashi (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Yuru Camp△) will play the daughter Hime Gotou.
Kumeta published a full-color four-page prototype of the manga in Monthly Shounen Magazine in November 2015, three years after concluding Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei). Kakushigoto began regular serialization in the magazine's January 2016 issue the following month. Kodansha shipped the tenth volume on November 15.
