If you were hoping the Plus-Sized Elf anime would find a streaming home, HIDIVE has you covered. The streaming service announced plans to add the adaptation to its growing Summer 2024 lineup as an exclusive simulcast this July.

The Plus-Sized Elf anime is being directed by Toshikatsu Tokoro (Soul Link), with Yuki Takabayashi (Love Rice) in charge of scripts and Katsuyuki Sato (Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable!) on character designs for the Elias production. Cher Watanabe (The Prince of Tennis) is on board as music composer.

The Plus-Sized Elf manga by Synechdoche is being published in English via Seven Seas Entertainment.

Here’s how HIDIVE describes it:

Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest—everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight—and keep it off?
