Preliminary (3/13 eps)
A show that feels like it's trying to ride on the tailwind of Spy x Family and The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting, but captures neither the enjoyability of either show.

To sum things up, Miri is just plain annoying without redeeming qualities, and the two dad are just plain incompetent.

Riding the hype from Spy x Family and The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting comes an “original” anime about yet another unconventional parent/s tasked with taking care of a sweet little girl.

Kazuki Kurusu and Rei Suwa are a pair of assassins and roomies introduced as two dads trying their best (well, one of them is trying his best). But before viewers can ship the two, the anime takes every opportunity possible to emphasize that Kazuki is very, very straight.

Honestly, I don’t care what the main characters’ sexualities are. If anything, this not-so-new trope actually works best when the parents aren’t in an official relationship, so the ...
