Torrance, CA - Wednesday, July 13, 2022:

Hey there, it's the Kaiten Books team once more, with a big reminder for all the fans of The Yakuza's Guide to Babysitting. As of last week, the anime adaptation of the series has begun airing! The first episode has already aired, with the second coming later this week, so be sure to tune in.

If you're looking for a place to watch the series with English subtitles, Crunchyroll should have you covered. Their simulcasts are on Thursdays at 8:30 AM PDT!

Also, as a little celebratory gift from us, the first volume of the series will be available for FREE on Bookwalker all the way up until Thursday, the 14th of July at 11:59 PM PDT. If you're looking to get into the series for the first time and try it out while the anime is airing, feel free!

While we're at it, just another little reminder that the 3rd volume of the series will be having its print release in around a month from now, on August 16th, 2022. Go and pre-order if you're interested!

Here's to a fun and eventful rest of the summer! We'll have more news for you all in the future, but for now, go on and enjoy The Yakuza's Guide to Babysitting in motion!
