Shoujo Manga readers, this one may be for you. Hatsuharu’s Shoujo Manga “Ojou to Banken-kun (A Girl and Her Guard Dog)” is geared up for an anime adaptation under Ponyo Canyon Productions.
‘A Girl and Her Guard Dog ‘ is about Isaku, a girl who was forced to live with her Yakuza grandfather because her parents died in a car accident when she was just at the ripe age of 5. When she went with her grandfather, she was immediately accepted as part of the clan.
Because of her family’s background and circumstances, Isaku was avoided by her peers, and throughout elementary and middle school, she had no friends at all. After long years of being a black sheep, Isaku is finally ready to make her long-awaited high school debut, live a normal life, and maybe even find love.
That is until Isaku’s dedicated guardian and their family’s loyal servant enters high school alongside her. 26-year-old Keiya vows to protect Isaku with everything that he’s got… but Isaku doesn’t really like the idea, because now she’s got a chain-smoking, pistol-wielding-protector to deal with.
The announcement of the anime adaptation gained numerous reactions from fans, and the majority of them are not pleased. Some find the age gap too much, saying it’s basically a crime, but avid readers of the manga are quite pleased with the story and are excited to hear more about the upcoming anime.
The manga began serialization in 2018 and is still currently ongoing.
Meanwhile, other known projects the Ponyo Canyon Productions took part in are as follows:
- Tokyo Revengers
- Attack on Titan
- Silent Voice
- Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
- Saiki K
- School Days
And many more…
We can expect more details about Ojou to Banken-kun (A Girl and Her Guard Dog)’s anime adaptation soon.
