The original Aka-chan Honbuchou web comic was published from 2017 - 2020. The story of the series follows General Manager Takeda, a 47 year old office executive who suddenly reverts into an eight month old baby one day. With the help of his subordinates, General Manager Takeda continues to do his middle management job.
