A new anime adaptation was revealed in October 2022 with plans for a 2023 TV debut with A Girl & Her Guard Dog. It’s based on the manga by Hatsuharu which began in 2018 and has eight volumes out as of October 2022. Kodansha USA is releasing it digitally in English with seven volumes out so far and they’ve also released the creator’s other series Can I Kiss You Every Day?

The twelve-episode series is getting its home video releases handled by Pony Canyon and they’ve set a three-volume release for the show. Beginning on January 17th, 2024, it’ll be on Blu-ray only with each set priced at 9,000 yen.

With the first set coming up next month, we now have a look at the packaging for it below that will help define the run. Check out the details and schedule below.

The show has Nobuhiro Takamoto directing it from the series composition by Aya Satsuki. Yukiko Ban is handling the character designs with project No. 9 on the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Akari Kitō as Isaku Senagaki, Yuichiro Umehara as Keiya Utō, Junya Enoki as Mikio Tanuki, and Mai Nakahara as Kaori Sekiya.

Masayoshi Oishi will be performing the opening theme song sequence with the song “Suki ni Naccha Dame na Hito.” The ending theme song will be “MagiexMagie” which is performed by Akari Kito.

Plot Concept: Isaku never asked to be the daughter of a yakuza boss, but when her parents died in a car accident when she was 5, her gangster grandfather took her in and raised her as part of the clan. After years of being avoided by her schoolmates because of her family ties, Isaku is finally ready to make her high-school debut, live a normal life, and maybe even find love…until loyal family servant and Isaku’s dedicated guardian, 26-year-old Keiya, enters high school right alongside her and vows to protect her from all of the above! Now she’s got a chain-smoking, pistol-wielding knight-in-shining(?)-armor to deal with, and navigating high school besides? What’s a young lady to do?!
