If you have read the manga, would you like to have a second season? Would you like the ending changed? If so, how would you like to see the second season evolve?

they don't have to make the anime the same as the manga...keep it rolling with the theme of a man rising a daughter in everyday life.

I've not read the manga, but I've heard how it ends from various online sources. I'm not personally interested in seeing the story evolve in that particular direction. However, as mentioned, the anime need not mirror the manga exactly. I loved this first season, and wouldn't mind a second season along the same lines.

I agree with the two of you. I do not care for the way the manga ends. I would like to see the father daughter relationship evolve in that very way. I am not opposed to time passing and everyone growing older. I just really want the ending to be different.

While I'm not opposed to to seeing this series go the storypath of the manga, there's certainly still enough material left, before the "time jump" that the manga takes, to do a 2nd season.
For that matter, a Season 2 could even DO the 8-year leap, as the final episode, setting up for a Season 3.

I haven't read the manga yet but I did have someone tell me the ending and though I don't like what happen I'll still read the manga. But I don't think that there needs to be a second season. I guess I'm in the minority with this one but if a show is really well wrapped up (ex. Tiger & Bunny, Bunny Drop, Haruhi Suzumiya) I don't feel like there needs to be another season. I'm very happy when they do make a new season because I trust those writers to be awesome but I'm happy with the product they made. I feel like if I sit back and go 'that was great when is the next season?' It's kind of rude.

But to answer the question, I don't really want one because I don't want to see that ending in anime form and I don't really like when the plot gets changed. (Unless the writer gives full consent or writes a different version then I'm ok.)

Given what I've heard about the ending of the Manga, I'm not entirely certain that I'd like to see a second season of this show if it went down the same route as the manga has. I'd like to see more of the platonic/paternal relationship between Daikichi and Rin but nothing else if I'm to be entirely honest.

I completely agree with you Trainlovingfreak. If you think about it one of the reason most people like the story thus far is because it’s based on such a pure act of kindness and goodwill that you can’t help but be moved by it. The turn the manga takes I feel takes away that goodness and turns it in to something more malicious. I would like it to remain the lovely feel good story it has been. Though I know that stories can’t stay happy always, I feel it is that very thing that made this anime stand out and why it won so many people over. However, Littlelostkitten says that this is the way the mangaka made the manga, it is the way it was intended to play out and so it should stay. While I understand and somewhat sympathize with her view (after all the mangaka has indeed spent a lot of time working on the story), I think that there is always room to improve and to get an even better outcome on everything we do. Perhaps if the story continued with its feel good vive it would elevate the story into something that can be discussed for more than just a few seasons’ and loved for generations, the potential is there.

Well, I have just finished reading the manga, and I for one think that the ending is excellent. With all things taken into consideration, there is nothing wrong with the way the characters drift in the future form of the manga. Rather than keeping things predictable by using all of the current characters in exactly the way the anime hints at for the long term, I really enjoyed the sudden shift in tracks.

The ending wasn't ill-conceived or even malicious. It demonstrates the way things may end up with someone else's daughter as your own child. Rin's ultimate decision in the manga demonstrated an absolute, unconditional love that I think played a perfect counterpoint to Daikichi's fatherly love of her as a child. I can't say any more without spoiling directly, but I really urge you all to read it through to the end. The subtle nuances that the mangaka uses in the latter half are perfect in every way of both real life and the characters that have been created.

Thank you for your input angelofragnarok. I for one have read the manga in its entirety, and though I see what your points I can't help but feel as I do. Perhaps it is because I want that predictability or I was not ready for the shock factor it had on me. Whatever the case may be, I can’t seem to accede the ending. Maybes I have too much of a conservative view on the matter. I find something cantankerous about the feelings. I agree with you on the claim of no malice intended; the manner in which the feeling presents itself does seem pure. For the most part I think the story is lovely, the pureness and the way it flows are its greatest asset. The ending is another story, but that is the greatest thing about mangas, there is a bit for everyone.
Though we disagree, I truly thank you for your point of view it’s given me some things to think about. (^.^)

I really dug the 11 (maybe 12?) episodes and would be really happy to see a second season. Like others have said, the anime does not have to follow the manga, as long as the spirit of the work is the same then you are getting alternate story that can be just has enjoyable.

for the anime?? nope...

i think the essence of the anime is the father-daughter relationship...

no need to produce another sequel coz i think it would ruin the present premise..

I am torn, Part of me would love to see a second season because there is so much they could explore but on the other hand some things run there course and its best not to force more out of it when its not there. This is something Hollywood fails to learn from. If they did it right I would be okay I am not to sure about keeping it in line with the manga from what I have heard but however strange that seems to us (I am referring to Daikichi marrying Rin or so I am told)spoiler sorry. In Japan it is not a unheard of cultural practice if you know of the tale of shining genji that very thing happens. Obviously it would have been practiced in ancient japan because children were married very early. especially girls. That being said I don't intend to read the manga instead I will take the anime as a whole and enjoy it. Nothing more

Considering the however-many-year time jump between the two halves of the manga, there's plenty of room for second season to start where the first left off. I liked the rest of the manga, including the end, by the way, but what I didn't like was that it felt like the rest of the slice-of-life high school mangas that we've seen a hundred times before, and a second season following the manga would be like the rest of the slice-of-life animes eve's seen a hundred times before.

A second season following Rin through elementary school would be good, especially if they could introduce more characters, and flesh out Daikichi's failed relationship with Koki's mom (is she ever even named in this show?)

I'm reading the manga...
It's still an awesome anime and great manga, but since their in high-school
now, it's weird to me, because:

1: They are all grown up now..
2: There's more DRAMA
3: It's not following the story-line that much anymore...

Usagi Drop was supposed to be about Rin living with Daikichi or whatever his name is...
Now it's more focused on Kouki and Rin where I'm at now.. I still LOVE this anime...it's my #1 favorite for sure, but still, sometimes it irritates me a tiny bit when they go off topic inone part of the book...

AWESOME ANIME...BUT MIXED UP STORYLINE XD
