A sergeant by the name of Sousuke Sagara is assigned an important task. That of guarding high school girl Chidori Kaname. Sousuke is a military genius, gaining high rank at an early age, but because of his strange upbringing, he lacks social skill. Now, he finds himself as a fish out of water as he attempts to protect a girl from an evil organization and turn in his school work on time.

I saw there was no review for this manga, so I thought I should try making one. Be warned, this is my first review, so it’s not going to be perfect, but I hope it can be helpful at least =P
