Okay so the ending to Usagi Drop in the manga is that Rin comes to realize she has feelings for Daikichi. She also learns that she actually isnt Granpa's daughter and that she has no blood relation to him. Daikichi teels her to wait till she graduates high school.. And in the very last chapter she tells him she wants to bear his child. The ending was a little too much for me because throught the whole manga they're building Daikichi as the father character then they completly throw that out of the window like it never existed.

actually rin pushed it on him.. he didn't want to feel that way ant he hates the fact that his "daughter" loves him that love way.. now the anime may go a different direction due to how short it is.. I hope to god so.. but well... heh i am just to cynical not to be surprised. I wish that the ending didn't happen this way.. but nothing can be done about it.

I think the anime is going to stop before the manga had a time-skip and just leave it at that.

Spoiler!!!!!!!!!!!!!! damn. Well, I guess I can tell that from the Title LOL.

EDIT: Ok, I just read it, and to my surprise, I kind of like the ending. Although I would have never expected that kind of ending, but it is ok with me. If Rin is happy with her decision, then I guess it's ok, although there might be some issue of how it is going to work out, but I will support them with all my heart.

I wish I can find a girl that faithful and actually keeps a promise and actually wait 2 years like that.

I bet the anime will end, story-wise, before it reaches the time skip

They may leave the time jump for a possible season 2.

Please. Say "spoilers, serious spoilers".

I hope they timeskip will never make it into the anime. Not that I'm screaming "pedophily!!", but I simply don't think it's worth it. It wasn't even very well executed in the manga, they never went deep into the issues but rather just had the "happy ending" come as fast as possible.
I mean, come on, if you're going to start a completely different story with completely different themes, do it in another manga. Readers will be spared from much awkwardness, and probably will also be able to enjoy the later part properly if it isn't done badly like that. -.-

I'm enjoying the anime, but I was disappointed when I heard about the manga's ending. (I've only read what's been released in America so far.) It seemed like the story was earnestly trying to depict a realistic bond between a parent and child. To me, Rin wanting to marry Daikichi, and even worse, him agreeing to do so, despite his reservations, really cheapens the whole relationship.

i read it myself, and that time-skip didn't make sense. it was so out-of-the-blue it's like the main idea of it SIMPLY DISAPPEARED. raising a child to be a strong adult was my original idea, and could've WORKED. the creator didn't need to be THAT UNIQUE with his work. RAISING A CHILD has never been a manga so it was ALREADY UNIQUE in itself.
the ending was KILLED with the I'M GONNA MARRY MY FATHER mindset RIN LEFT WITH before it actually ended. THERE'S STILL TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE ANIME. IT'S NOT TOO LATE. LET'S PRAY alright MIRACLES HAPPEN ONCE IN AWHILE

For those complaining about the spoilers - IT SAYS SO IN THE TITLE and the under-title!

Show some common sense and just stay away from this thread instead of ruining the ending for yourself.

The time skip makes sense, because after a while you'll get nowhere with the story - it will just be Rin being cute and nothing special happening. By having the time skip it allows for the characters to actually develop and move on. Rin stayed true to herself even after the time skip, so even less reason to complain about it.

The ending itself felt a bit rough - could've done with some more finer working on, but can't really complain. It could have been foreseen, I mean Daikichi was pretty much the only male figure in her life worth relying on. So in a way, it is just natural that she fell in love with him. Her childhood friend was too hopeless and pretty much everyone else wasn't on the same "level of thought" as Rin - as everyone thought she was so mature and smart etc...

The reason for the time jump from 6 to 16 is to compare and contrast the two times and to see the eventual effects from the things that happened 10 years before. Having the abrupt change just makes the contrast that much easier to see.

As for the ending, Rin set herself up for that ending from the very beginning. The clues are there to see. She never accepted him as her father, for example. Several things are in there for those who want to look for them. And given her history, I wasn't exactly surprised to find she decided to spend her life with the one guy she could reasonably count on not to abandon her.

And the ending, as with so much of the story, is very realistic for Japanese society. It's not exactly common for a girl to want a particular guy that much older, but it does happen and everything the story depicts is factually correct.

You are dumb as hell and probably have Asperger's and have never had a girlfriend if you think it is okay for a child to marry their adopted parent, "NOT BLOOD RELATED!" shitty-ass plot twist or not. It's you. You are the type of anime fan that creeps every single normal person out.

When saying something it helps to not be completely talking out your ass. Yotsuba, Beelzebub, My Girl Sahara Mizu are just three other examples of Single Dad Manga.

No. You see, anyone whose mind isn't completely entangled by perversion and perpetually in the gutter, someone who sees a blush on an anime character's face and doesn't immediately think they want to bone whoever is talking to them, saw this as just an innocent, wonderful, adorable and fairly deep story of a man raising a young child that isn't his. An adopted child who reached a sufficient enough age to be able to think about things(I.E. not a couple years old) will sometimes refuse to call their adopted parent "mom" or "dad", holding onto their real parent's attachment instead. It's not uncommon in the real world. ONLY AFTER SEEING THE ENDING STORYLINE does going back and looking at all of it put it in a much darker, creepier light. The ending plotline literally corrupts the entire rest of the series.
