We recap the Crunchyroll anime series Buddy Daddies Season 1 Episode 10, “Lost at Sea,” which contains spoilers.
Kazuki (voiced by Toshiyuki Toyonaga), Rei (voiced by Koki Uchiyama), and Miri (voiced by Hina Kino) seemed closer than ever in Buddy Daddies Season 1 Episode 9 during her school’s field day.

Just when it seemed Rei had found his family, his father could be the one to jeopardize everything.
Buddy Daddies Season 1 Episode 10 Recap
The episode opens with Miri’s class learning the song Silent Night for the upcoming Christmas Party. Meanwhile, Kazuki and Rei are deciding what to get her for Christmas. When Rei and Kazuki show up to get Miri from daycare, her mother, Unasaka Misaki, stands outside waiting for them. She says she has come to take Miri back.
Why does Misaki want Miri back?
After allowing Misaki and Miri to spend the day together at their home, Kazuki and Rei confront her once Miri falls asleep. She says she has returned because she was fired from her job, lost her man, and, worst of all, her cancer spread to her throat, so she can no longer sing.
After admitting she does not know how much longer she has to live, she asks for another chance with Miri, even promising not to uproot her life entirely.
Why did Kyutaro tell Misaki what Kazuki and Rei do for a living?
When Misaki tells Kazuki and Rei she wants to take Miri, she uses their job against them, saying she knows what they do and how dangerous it is. Upset, Kazuki and Rei later vent to Kyutaro, wondering how Misaki could have figured out their profession.
Kyutaro admits that he told Misaki they were assassins to save Kazuki and Rei from the organization. The organization thinks Miri’s presence is making their work “sloppy,” and if they don’t get rid of her soon, the punishment will only get worse.

READ: Buddy Daddies Season 1 Review
In a series where I was expecting a ton of action, I have mentioned before that there is honestly very little of that. However, today’s episode put into perspective just what all that relationship-building this season was for. Since I was constantly expecting a big fight sequence or assassination attempt, I did not see this option coming, and honestly, it almost hurt worse. Throughout the season, we’ve seen how much Kazuki and Rei care for Miri, but it wasn’t until they lost her that I realized how attached to their cute little family I had become. It seems all those family-oriented episodes really had an impact.
