Tooru Kirishima's notoriety is spread far and wide in the underworld. He is most commonly known as "The Demon of Sakuragi"—a man who is not afraid to resort to violence if deemed necessary. After almost jeopardizing a peace treaty, his boss tasks him with the most difficult job he has ever had: taking care of seven-year-old Yaeka Sakuragi—the boss' precious daughter—so that Tooru understands what it means to be responsible for another life.

At first, the two do not seem to meet eye to eye, as Tooru has no clue on how to communicate with Yaeka, and the young girl is not used to expressing her emotions. However, as time goes on, they come to understand each other despite their differences. The fearsome right-hand man of a yakuza boss and the child he must protect are about to learn that family is not always bound by blood.

Do you enjoy childcare?
Do you like wholesome and heartfelt moments?
Do you like shows that make you want to protect and care for others, as if you were a parent?
Last but not least, are you interested in reminiscing about your childhood days with your parents/nanny or any other parental figure?
Then this show is for you.

The show revolves around the Tooru and Yaeka duo, with Tooru in charge of babysitting Yaeka on the orders of the household's and Sakuragi Group's head, Kazuhiko. You can see how the duo clicked right away. Whenever Tooru does something sweet for Yaeka and vice versa, you go awwww, that's so sweet, ...

Gokushufudou, Hinamatsuri or even Spy X Family, the wholesome Yakuza family version...but is it all true as the source material implies with the same tropes?

This is the first anime adaptation of a Micro Magazine Comic ELMO title, and mangaka Tsukiya's only work that once got its start as a web manga posted on the author's Twitter and pixiv accounts under the title "Gokudou Musume to Sewagakari" (you can see the Gokushufudou semblance here). Regardless, as much as Yakuza families go, there have been some that has made the rounds with their inert similarities with one another, taking one aspect and fusing it with the other ...

It pains me to say it but Kumichou Musume to Sewagakari is the prime example of the 'mid show'.

The concept of found family in the yakuza environment itself is actually a great setup that can end up with a fantastic action-packed comedy. Yet, in this show, the whole part of gang life is only treated as an explanation for why Kirishima used to be a violent and cruel person and the jokes are often unfunny or even cringe.

When I read the description of this show for the first time, I hoped it would be another entertaining thing to watch, similar to Hinamatsuri but what we ...
