The cast includes Ayasa Itō as Elfuda, Takahide Ishii as Tomoatsu Naoe, Rena Hasegawa as Kuroeda, and Ayaka Fukuhara as Oga.

Plus-Sized Elf initially debuted on Wani Books’ Comic Gum website in December 2016, with the seventh compiled volume released in October 2020. Synecdoche launched Plus-Sized Elf: Second Helping (Shin Plus-Sized Elf) on LINE Manga in November 2021 as the “second season” of the original manga.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the manga:

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?
