Hopefully Haruka will be able to work things out with her husband. It seems to me that the main issue is the in-law instead of the spouse. The husband didn't seem like a bad person when he picked them up- he was gentle with Reina at least.

It was nice of Rin's mother to stay behind and watch her daughter as a seven-year-old; I think she still has maternal affection towards Rin even after all these years. As always, I'm surprised by the contrast between the two of them. Soukichi-san's influence must have been really strong.
My favourite scene was when Daikichi was thinking to himself and Rin kept calling his name.
Now it seems more like she just didn't feel mature enough to care of Rin, her statement about more work was suggestive too, but it's obviously to late. Her character isn't suited for a mother type anyway, not if she had 6/7 long years to develop as is still like that.
It was also nice to see how she's coping with the whole situation, the little shocker in the middle was quiet alarming, but all went well in the end. I wish the epilog would have been part of the real episode.^^

The epilogue would have been nice if it was included in the episode. Rin in her yukata was so cute.Quote:
Just started watching Usagi Drop. I've been more often than not disappointed with manga to anime adaptations but this one is unbelievably good.
I'm curious about how close they were going to stick to the manga if they decide to continue the series, plot-wise.

When Rin got sick, it was probably the first time Daikichi "broke down". I wouldn't know what to do in his situation as well because even with his care, it's up to Rin as well to fully cover. It was nice of Yukari-san to help Daikichi out, and it was adorable how Kouki blushed when Rin thanked him.
And I wonder if Yukari and Dakichi will really end up as a pair, I would love to see them together.
It's sad that the season's already ending if their isn't any announcement for a new one soon I might start the manga.
I'm glad the last episode didn't seem like a finale by having a dramatic event that feels out of place with the other ten episodes. This is a slice-of-life anime so there's no such thing as an "end" just like in real life; life goes on until death.
It's great how it seems like there will be a continuation because -putting the manga aside- Rin and Daikichi's story isn't over: we can imagine what they'll be up to tomorrow, what Rin will learn at school and how Daikichi will cope with the various obstacles that raising a child entails.
Whether there'll be a second season or not, I'm happy with how things have tied up. I'm glad I picked up on this series when I did.
