The manga’s English digital publication is being handled by Kodansha USA Publishing. The narrative of the series unfolds as Isaku unexpectedly finds herself a part of a yakuza clan due to tragic circumstances after losing her parents in a car accident at the tender age of five. Growing up under the wing of her gangster grandfather, she faces isolation from her schoolmates who shy away due to her familial connections.

Eager to embrace a normal life, step into high school, and perhaps discover romance, Isaku’s plans take an unexpected turn as her devoted guardian and family retainer, the 26-year-old Keiya, enrolls alongside her. His unwavering pledge to safeguard her alters the course of her high school journey.

Balancing academics and the complexities of high school life now come with the added challenge of dealing with a pistol-wielding, chain-smoking protector who may or may not be her shining knight. How will this young lady navigate these intricacies?

Debuting in Bessatsu Friend in December 2018, the manga was crafted by Hatsuharu. Its eighth compiled volume, released in Japan in October 2022, marked a significant milestone. However, the series has been on a temporary hiatus since March.
