4 Volumes (Complete)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
14-year-old Shiga Ayano is cursed with a weirdo bio-researcher scientist as a father. On the day she's supposed to go on a date with a boy she likes, she wakes to find a ferret-like creature affixed to her nether regions. It's her father's plan to protect her female virtue, and it won't be removed until she's an adult! The ferret creature seems to behave in some ways like a boy's penis, but it also has controls to set it in different 'modes' (like 'light mode' and 'mascot mode'). It's no wonder that her father has to use copies of himself, because Ayano is angry enough to kill him repeatedly. Ayano is furious that the creature can't be removed, and she fears that people at school will find out about her new modification. However, she also notices that her ferret-thing responds exceptionally to the presence of her childhood friend, Misa-chin...Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This manga presents an unusual take on the story of Date Masamune, starting in 1571. The Date family has a young daughter named Hagi, who is as lively and strong-spirited as a boy. She falls ill with small pox and barely survives, losing sight in her right eye in the process. Her parents take this opportunity to correct the mistake of her birth--the fact that she was born a girl. When she awakes, they insist to the young child that she is their oldest son, Bontenmaru (the childhood name of Masamune) and proceed to raise her as their son! Now the legendary life of a female Date Masamune begins!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Doctor & Daughter is the weird one of the week, but it is also way less explicit than the description might sound. P.S. Restart was a pretty cute 4 koma, and I could imagine it getting an anime.
