Manga author Nami Sano is known for the Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto series, which received an anime adaptation of its own. Migi & Dali kicked off in the pages of KADOKAWA’s Harta magazine in July 2017, and just came to an end in November 2021.

Here’s how Kadokawa sums up the story:

Under the table is the angel’s secret.

The boy’s name was Hitori. A stork brought the angel into the lives of a middle-aged couple who were not blessed with children. His parents were kind, his house spacious, and his meals hot. But to protect the happiness he had received, Hitori continued to hide an important secret from his parents.
