Daikichi Kawachi is a 30-year-old bachelor working a respectable job but otherwise wandering aimlessly through life. When his grandfather suddenly passes away, he returns to the family home to pay his respects. Upon arriving at the house, he meets a mysterious young girl named Rin who, to Daikichi’s astonishment, is his grandfather's illegitimate daughter! The shy and unapproachable girl is deemed an embarrassment to the family, and finds herself ostracized by her father's relatives, all of them refusing to take care of her in the wake of his death. Daikichi, angered by their coldness towards Rin, announces that he will take her in—despite the fact that he is a young, single man with no prior childcare experience. Usagi Drop is the story of Daikichi's journey through fatherhood as he raises Rin with his gentle and affectionate nature, as well as an exploration of the warmth and interdependence that are at the heart of a happy, close-knit family.

Don’t read the manga ending.


Sweet down-to-earth story about the joys and struggles of parenthood reflecting some of the most mundane aspects of life. Avoid the manga!


The simple day to day pleasures and grievances of taking care of a child and them teaching you along the way


Very touching series that kind of began the “father/daughter” series sub genre. If you have enjoyed those shows then definitely watch this.


Slice of Life, discovery of the joys and sorrows of being a parent of an adopted child. a family love story that is awesome


The perfect anime palette cleanser. A short series about new parenthood that makes you appreciate the simple beauty of everyday life.


The best anime about parenting I know of. There is so much good to be found here.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
