What is the plot of the girl and her guard dog?
The story focuses on a young Japanese high school student named Isaku.When Isak’s parents died in a car accident, when she was 5 years old, her grandfather gangster decided to accept and raise her as part of the Tasuke Senagaki-Gumi (Syndicate, clan).Unfortunately, this led to the fact that Isak’s colleagues avoided her and avoided her because of her cursory family ties.
Isaku is determined that when he goes to high school, he will secretly keep family ties to have a normal life at school, make friendships, and maybe even find love.However, the loyal servant of the Isaki family, lieutenant Senagaki-Gumi and a devoted guardian decides to join high school next to her and swear to protect her-ironically against everything he wants (especially potential boys).
Not only that, Keiya UTO is a 26-year-old, burning chain, armed with a pistol in shiny armor (Scratch to) with pain in the ass.The only redemptive feature of Keiya is his handsome face – it is one of the reasons why she fell in love with him unilaterally.What can a girl who wants to have a normal life at school, but is prosecuted by her guardian?And why is Keiya so overprotective to her, since she only sees her as a family member, even if they are not related?
Controversy related to the species of age differences
In the original manga Sailor Moon and the subsequent adaptation of the anime, Serena (Usagi) high school student (Usagi) fell in love with Darien (Mamor), who was a college student.However, when Sailor Moon became popular in the United States, this age difference caused so much controversy that after restarting in 2014, Darien was turned into a high school student, so that their romance was more acceptable in the eyes of Western people.
The age of consent in Japan is 13 years, but most Westerners do not understand that the Japanese, who is 13 or 14 years old, can engage in romantic acts only with a person of the same age.The Japanese can get married at the age of 16 (with the consent of his parents), while the Japanese can get married at the age of 18.In Japan, if you are 18-20, you are basically considered an adult who is legal.
Isaku and Keiya cannot be romantic (or legally) together, unless she decides to marry him at the age of 16 (in Japan, students are usually in the second grade of high school at this age), or he can wait until she is 18 before she is 18They will be able to engage in romantic classes.
