What Is A Girl & Her Guard Dog’s Story About?

The series trails a 16-year-old girl Isaku who is also the granddaughter of a Yazuka boss. While her high-school troubles ail her every now and then, she also has to deal with her 26-year-old protector keeping an eye on her every step of the way.

Kodansha’s official synopsis of the manga reads:

“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?!”

Is Keiya Protective Of Isaku Or In Love With Her?

After Isaku lost her parents, Keiya basically raised her since she was five years old. This was due to the fact that her gangster grandfather was always busy taking care of business. But the twist in the tale is that Isaku has feelings for Keiya but he is someone who raised him like a father figure.

So, keeping this in mind, Isaku wishes to leave her feelings behind to get a fresh start in high school. However, she is astonished to see Keiya posing as her classmate in an attempt to protect her. He is possessive and protective. Could it be that even he has feelings for Isaku? This is something fans will have to find out either through the manga or the upcoming anime series.
