I was bored and had nothing to do on my day off so I decided to hit that little dice cube and see what I would get.
I got Usagi Drop, I could not stop watching this 11 episode series because it warmed my heart so much and if you haven't seen it yet I implore you to watch it.

Anime Description:
"By force of circumstances, a 30-year-old single man with a full-time job suddenly starts raising a 6-year-old girl. While running each other ragged, the two of them gradually grow into a “family”. This is the long-awaited anime version of “Bunny Drop”, the extremely popular and finely crafted comic by Yumi Unita. It’s a heartwarming and entertaining work that naturally depicts child-raising experiences, but also the instantly relatable warmth and noise of being in a family."

I watched it and rewatch it periodically. It is a good series. I just wonder (hope?) that the two single parents do hook up and get married later.

Here is the URL (fixed) for the show.

It's one of those series I just had to own. Ordered the DVDs as soon as they were available

Usagi Drop was an incredibly heartwarming anime.

Although I doubt a kid as well-behaved as Rin has ever existed anywhere in the history of humanity.

Yeah, I really liked this a lot. Enough so that I gave a copy to my not-anime-watcher sister. When people come up with lists of anime that's likely to get a good reception from folks unfamiliar with anime, this is one that I think belongs on the list.

The way the manga ends is a topic of great controversy. If you pop over to the manga discussion sections you will see why.

For real. I was very amused when Daikichi commented that he sometimes wondered who was raising who...

And by that we mean don't do it. Can't unread, unfortunately. After the manga I decided that the two parents DID hook up and get married, lived happily ever after with the two kids. Story end. Head canon is the best canon.

The thing I find funny about the ending is that it is technically a happy ending. There are other mangas out there where people have been killed, raped, tortured, whatever at the end, and it still gets accepted. Despite all that this simple ending makes so many people uncomfortable just because it challenges what is socially normal. I think I may like it just for that reason, the ending is in no way objectively wrong, it adheres to all the written rules, yet it breaks one unspoken rule, one unspoken rule that is not a law but makes people extremely uncomfortable because it almost feels like a loophole. It almost feels like it should be a law, it almost feels like this should be objectively wrong, yet it isn't. It defiles tradition without defiling logic, and makes people rage.

Please take discussion about the manga over to /forumtopic-727770/usagi-drop-ending and leave this thread for discussion about the anime, which does not have that ending.
