The story of Buddy Daddies follows Kazuki Kurusu, a criminal contractor/coordinator who lives with Rei Suwa, his best friend, and roommate, who is a professional assassin who has been raised since he was a child to be a contract killer. Kazuki is outgoing and loves gambling and women, while Rei is a man of few words who just spends his off time playing video games, given the opportunity. One day, however, the two buddies end up caring for Miri Unasaka, a four-year-old girl whose father is a mob boss, after she accidentally wanders into a gunfight in a hotel while looking for her father.
