(ダンディ・ダディ？ ～恋愛小説家・伊崎龍之介～)is a July 9 - September 3, 2009 TV series directed by Hiroshi Ikezoe,
Ryunosuke Izaki (Hiroshi Tachi ) is a widowed father who will go to extreme measures to protect his high school daughter Akari ( Nao Minamisawa ) from would-be boyfriends.
The ironic part is that Ryunosuke is also a popular romance novelist, particularly popular among the young crowd with his seemingly liberal views. The theme in his novels usually revolve around an idea of romantic freedom and not being bound by one person. Ryunosuke's novels are based on his own experiences as he has dated countless women.
Unfortunately, Ryunosuke's views does not apply to his daughter. This past spring Akari's high school switched from all female to a co-ed high school. Since that time Akari has had different guys approach her which made Ryunosuke all the more uncomfortable. Enough so that he now checks his daughter’s cell phone and even follows her when she goes out.
