Kippei is a high school playboy. When his aunt disappears leaving behind her 5 year old daughter, Yuzuyu, the responsibility of raising her is given to Kippei in an attempt to teach him responsibility.
For the most part, this is a cute, light hearted show. Kippei takes to the guardian role quite quickly and any mistakes he makes are more amusing than anything else. It does touch on the odd more serious subject matter such as child abuse and self harm (with talk of suicide), but not much is shown. A slap, a fall down the stairs (not serious. The one that fell wasn’t in an odd position and there was no blood or anything. Just knocked out), bruises and scars.
It had some romance. There was one or two make out scenes at the beginning, but nothing major and they only lasted a couple seconds. Kippei gets closer to a girl he has a crush on when she realizes he’s not a bad person (thanks to his relationship with Yuzuyu). Nothing major though. Kippei is a bit thick and the girl seems to have a hard time with emotions.
Anyway, the odd episode was boring and pointless. The end was disappointing. But it was mostly good so I’d recommend it. It’s not a must watch though.
