On Christmas Eve, four-year-old Miri Unasaka arrives in Tokyo completely alone, in search of her father. The bright lights and merry atmosphere guide Miri to a big hotel and a man with a delicious-looking cake. However, the child has just unknowingly walked into the center of an elaborate, foolproof plan for assassinating a dangerous mafia boss.

Professional assassins Kazuki Kurusu and Rei Suwa live together, fleeing memories of their grim childhoods and avoiding emotional connections. When their mission goes awry and they end up bringing Miri home, there is only one reasonable thing to do: return Miri to her mother. But the girl's innocent laugh and pure worldview quickly enamor her to Kazuki, who secretly enjoys playing a parent, and it is not long before Rei's impenetrable heart makes room for Miri.

Miri's every move is unpredictable, and Kazuki and Rei find raising an energetic child harder than any of their missions. Although it presents a great risk to their careers, Kazuki and Rei—both assuming the affectionate nickname "papa"—decide to provide Miri with a normal childhood despite all the odds stacked against them.

I was soooo sad when I saw that this anime is only for one season! It's one of those animes that you watch and leave with a warm heart and a sugary mouth, the two daddies are so cute even though they're not a gay couple, still, the story is very interesting, it has its degree of emotion and plots, because at the beginning of the anime you're like: "Omg how cute!!!" In the end, you're crying hahah but anyway, Buddy Daddies is one of the best anime about family and don't even tell me that it's a copy of Spy x Family because they ...

Mixed Feelings
this anime was straight up boring on the first 3 episodes i dropped it alteasy 3 times and i just watched it on the morning as a time killer and turns out as a pretty good story. Not so much on the hook but it turned out really good. No more season 2 on this with that ending.

Anyways this anime should be treated as a slice of life, time killer anime theres some really good bits and pieces of drama but in the end you will only see them on the later episodes

Might be confused with one of those anime where they mmakesu watch an ...

This show is like if Spy x Family cut out everything interesting in the plot.

The fact that this show got tagged as 'Action' is equivalent to if Death Note got tagged 'Slice of Life' because Light talks to his family sometimes. This show is purely a slice of life anime with a complication that the two Dad's are assassins. The hook of the show was supposed to be the balancing act of cool action assassin and the facade of a happy family raising an unknowing daughter.

Instead it is a show about a whiny ass little kid that is unbearable and is constantly crying and ...
