The Yakuza`s Guide to Babysitting

Rating: 7

Enjoyable anime.

Enjoyable variance in characters and their relations as a family.

My main gripes are the stereotypical and seemingly unnecessary violent Yakuza, implemented in an overpowered protagonist.

Smaller gripes:

  • the apparent necessity for a villain, or the decision to introduce and build up a villain
  • the “loving bullying and violence” trope

I think it could have been better with a less shallow and stereotypical approach. Nonetheless enjoyable, at times very much, for its good parts and character interactions.
