On Tuesday, the official website for the anime adaptation of Hatsuharu’s A Girl & Her Guard Dog manga revealed the anime’s second key visual, additional cast, and a September 28 premiere.
The anime’s additional cast includes:
Junya Enoki as Mikio Tanuki, the grandson of the Tanuki group leader
Mai Nakahara as Kaori Sekiya, the “mama” of a members-only club the Senagaki group is familiar with
Akari Kito is voicing the protagonist Isaku Sengaki, with Yuichiro Umehara as Keiya Uto.
The anime was originally supposed to premiere in October. The first two episodes will get an early screening in Japan on September 3 at the United Cinemas Toyosu, Tokyo.
The staff includes:
- Director: Nobuhiro Takamato
- Series Composition: Aya Satsuki

In December 2018, Hatsuharu launched the manga in Bessatu Friend magazine. The manga has been on hiatus since March.
The manga’s eighth volume was made available digitally in English on March 21 by Kodansha USA.
Kodansha USA Publishing describes the manga 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?!
