The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting has received its first trailer, providing a preview of Yoshimasa Hosoya and Misaki Watada‘s performances as yakuza member Tooru Kirishima and his ward Yaeka Sakuragi respectively. The anime is set to premiere in 2022.
The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting is based on the MICRO MAGAZINE-published manga by Tsukiya, which is serialized on Comic ELMO. The first tankoubon volume was released in 2018, while the sixth was released in September, 2021.
BookWalker Global describes the manga as:
Kirishima Tooru is the right-hand man of the Sakuragi crime family. For him, the job is a perfect excuse to let his violent instincts run wild, earning him the nickname “the Demon of Sakuragi”. It seems like nothing will stand in the way of his vicious nature.
But then one day, he receives an assignment like never before from the boss—babysitting his daughter!
This is the heartwarming (or is it bloodcurdling?) story of a little girl and her yakuza caretaker!
The staff of the anime includes Itsuro Kawasaki (Chuuka Ichiban, Gekijouban Tsubasa Chronicle: Tori Kago no Kuni no Himegimi) as director, Keiichirou Oochi (Girlfriend, Girlfriend) as series composer, and Hiromi Ogata (Magic Kaito 1412) as character designer. feel. and GAINA are the animation production studios.
