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.

I don't know why this is getting a lot of hate. I loved it. It was a cute, funny, actiony anime. You can't go wrong with that. And, for the ones that say that it's a p*do and a girl, you're wrong and haven't watched the full anime. It was good fun!

The story was good. I loved it. Yakuza meets high school(?). I don't know, but it was fun!

The characters are great too. We might need a backstory on the girl's friends, but apart from that, they were great!

The art and animation is a bit mixed...

I recommend this anime.

Ok so, the big controversy about this anime is the age gap. Everyone is making a big fuss about it, but I won't get into any of that in this review. I am personally ok with such age gaps and rather enjoy them even; if you're not and are absolutely convinced that it is not ok, just skip over this anime.

Alright, starting this review, I have been excited about this anime since last year and I couldn't really wait to see it because I felt like ugh, finally a classic, typical, shoujo plot. We've been missing those for a really long while now. After having ...

A Girl & Her Guard Dog - a case of deja vu from an author who struggles to stand out amongst many similar contemporaries, such that it forces his/her hand to create a derivative that, ironically, becomes so derided from its small community. And don't get me started on the appalling production values just yet.

Meet a mangaka who goes by the pseudonym name Hatsuharu. The context in which the author's works since 2013 have been growing from oneshots to small manga series serving the Shoujo market in the romance genre. But as you know, the romance genre is one of the most popular yet oversaturated ...
