When Isaku Senagaki was five years old, the death of her parents left her to be raised by her yakuza boss grandfather, Tasuke. Now preparing to enter high school, Isaku is determined to start fresh with an honest attempt at having a normal high school experience. All she wants is to be able to make friends and find love without being defined by her connection to the yakuza.

But Isaku's dreams are thwarted when her overprotective caretaker, 26-year-old Keiya Utou, takes it upon himself to enroll in Isaku's school by bribing the school administration. While Isaku yearns for a reciprocated love, she is trapped in a one-sided infatuation with Keiya, who only sees her as the boss's granddaughter he helped raise. Her longing for a normal life becomes a constant battle, and breaking free from her heart's grip is far more challenging than it sounds, as Keiya's overprotectiveness and disregard for her boundaries make it almost impossible to move on.

"Ojou to Banken-kun" is a masterpiece of the romantic genre, captivating viewers from the first episode. The chemistry between the protagonists is palpable, providing moments of genuine tenderness and emotion throughout the series.

The scene with the man in the hoodie on the beach especially stands out, which is a brilliant example of how anime incorporates visual and emotional elements to create memorable moments. The atmosphere created in this scene is touching, conveying both the tranquility of the beach and the intensity of the characters' emotions.

Furthermore, the soundtrack perfectly complements ...

Mixed Feelings
Out of all the anime that came out nearly the same time as Ojou to Banken-kun held the most high expectations and in the end, most of us fell hard...

The overall topic of the anime was good, not as informative as in the manga, with cute scenes, and inner monologes.
However, I have one question about the graphics... Whyy???

This anime had some cute moments but the graphics are horrible. I don't normally mind them, but it was worse than 90's anime. I don't know if this was a smaller project or what but the expressions weren't there and the proportions were odd. I was so distracted by the art I ignored the story. The story was okay until the age gap. It's very odd and leaves mixed feelings. Since her raised her it feels more like grooming than romance. It leaves an icky feeling.
