A live-action movie based on Hatsuharu’s manga A Girl & Her Guard Dog (Ojō to Banken-kun) will debut in spring 2025.

Keiichi Kobayashi is directing the film. Yо̄suke Masaike is writing the screenplay. Yurika Koike is producing. TOHO is distributing the film.

Hatsuharu launched the manga in Bessatsu Friend in December 2018.

The manga’s eighth collected book volume was released in Japan by Kodansha in September of last year.

An anime television series based on the manga debuted in September of last year and consisted of 13 episodes.

As it aired, the anime was broadcast on Crunchyroll.

Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the A Girl & Her Guard Dog manga in English digitally, and it describes the series as:

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?!
