The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting is officially getting an anime TV adaption, as announced by its creator Tsukiya on Twitter.
Originally launched on the Comic Ride pixiv site, the manga series has hit a surge of popularity since its move to Comic Elmo. There’s currently no word on which studio will be handling the anime adaption or when it will release.

Much like Way of the Househusband, The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting puts a rugged Yakuza member into an unlikely situation that requires his softer side.
“Kirishima Tooru is the right-hand man of the Sakuragi crime family,” says the official description of the manga. “For him, the job is a perfect excuse to let his violent instincts run wild, earning him the nickname ‘the Demon of Sakuragi’. It seems like nothing will stand in the way of his vicious nature. But then one day, he receives an assignment like never before from the boss—babysitting his daughter! This is the heartwarming (or is it bloodcurdling?) story of a little girl and her yakuza caretaker!”
The sixth volume of the manga is set to release soon in Japan, and the series recently started making its way West with the second volume releasing digitally back in June.
