Technically it isn't incest.
They had no relation to each other apart from an unofficial adoption.


Yeah in a way, techinically it is not an incest but it will all boil down to what the reader's or viewer's moral ethics are which is tightly knitted to ones religion.

But since Rin's father and Dakichi's grandfather is the same then they are blood relatives, so technically speaking Rin is his aunt .For them to have a sexual relationship and marriage could be a taboo in society.It would be controversial indeed.

However in Japan there was a practice wherein a family of status only have daughters , they will adopt a son and eventually a marriage between the sibling was practised. So if they were not blood relatives but adoptive relationship only then this is where the idea might stem from .

I found a list of forbidden marriages for UK
http://www.genetic-genealogy.co.uk/Toc115570145.html

So for me , I am strongly against in marital relationship within blood relatives.

But Hey, its only a manga.... and thats just show how good this anime is because you get sucked into the world of the characters.
p.s.

Actually, it wasn't incest in any way because you find out later that the grandfather had only adopted Rin and was not actually her father.

So, they aren't blood relatives. I'm still not comfortable with their relationship in the end, though. xP

This thread should be rated "Spoiler Thread". I've read through the whole thing just barely realizing it, D'oh!!!

Sorry man...

people started talking about the manga but it had the spoiler tag on it though until it just all came out in a discussion about incest .I haven't read the manga either so I am curious to find out for myself too.

Anyway on a different note,

looks like Production IG is going to release a Special short episode on October 28 for Usagi Drop.

In your explanation you just summed up the Kiss x Sis series.

I would not want to marry a girl I had raised, that just seems weird. It seems like the anime story was pushing towards Daikichi and that other single mother forming a family unit of sorts, maybe getting those two together. For the series to end in the way described in this thread seems like a big "out of left field" sort of thing.

Wow, I had been hearing that the manga ending was going to be something most people didn't like but wow I didn't know the ending was marriage. Yes, technically it wouldn't be wrong but it FEELS wrong---well to me anyway. I just don't feel comfortable with the idea that you raise childrenso that you c an marry them when their grown. If you have taken on that responsibility as parent then don't change it into something else later. But then again this is me just yapping.

I'm still hoping the ending is changed if they continue into the series via the time skip. I usually get upset when anime companies take liberties with the manga.. this time.. I'm HOPING they do. I wouldn't even mind if they kept doing more kid episodes ;)

Looking forward to the short episode on the 28th!

...FINALLY some who gets it.. i feel the same damn way.. also what I don't get the person that did this manga is a mother of two.. why??... just why?? Hell a cousin marriage ending with dakiachi and his cousin that had the littler girl would have been more acceptable then this.. but you don't marry a child you raise for 12 years of your life..I just don't see it and I am one of the biggest pervs on this site
