Spring 2018 First Impressions: Hinamatsuri – All The Toughest Yakuza Do Pinky Swears

Yoshifumi Nitta, a member of the yakuza, likes the finer things in life: specifically, incredibly expensive vases. But when a teleporting metallic egg bursts into his home containing a girl named Hina who quickly destroys his collection with her psychokinetic powers, he is powerless to do anything about it in case she destroys him next! Before he quite knows what is happening he finds himself looking after Hina, making her meals, buying her clothes and toys, and even enrolling her in a local school so long as she promises not to use her powers on him. Unfortunately her powers cannot be so easily contained: one day after holding them in for too long she destroys his apartment. Lucky for him he has an outlet for her; his boss has asked him to clear some land for development and Hina is the perfect partner to make that happen. But when Nitta is ordered to perform a hit on a rival yakuza boss he finds that Hina is all too willing to help with that too. What has she been through, and how can Nitta make sure that she is well taken care of and her powers aren’t used for nefarious purposes?
