I haven’t watched the whole first episode yet but I took a peek at it and the art reminds me of Honey and Clover very much , that alone made the series gain big points with me. And after reading the synopsis I’m looking forward to episode 1 even more; in fact, I’m considering checking out the J-drama as well. ^_^

Wonderful episode! I’m sold on this series. Since Ushio from Clannad, I can’t remember another girl who has captivated my heart as Rin did in this episode. Rin was the star of this episode in my opinion, great character that I’m very anxious to know more about.
Rin is such an adorable yet complex character at the same time and one of the things I’m looking forward the most in this anime is how Rin is going to positively affect Dai-chan’s life and vice versa, how Dai-chan is going to positively affect Rin’s life. Yes, raising Rin isn’t going to be a walk in the part, but I think doing that is going to be the best experience that has happened to Dai-chan in his life.
I’m so looking forward to the next episode!

i fallen love with Rin's Character , she is quiet and confused after meet Dai and Her Dad similar .. but one thing, i am upset about his family don't want her because bullshit stuff hinder to care rin since she is part of the Family
Don't blame on girl... She is so cute and little ... different girl was noisy and rude because her mother spoil her and can't control her daughter behavior . Rin is mature because her Dad (Grandpa's parenthood influence on Rin 's Childhood behavior )
I love this series but I hope it will more interesting between RIn and Dai 's life style... i want to see Dai take Rin to School ...
Is it just me or did the art changed a bit through the ep? At first it seemed more like a moving, colored and after a few minutes it looked more animated. Liked both and thought the change was quite refreshing but I might have just imagined thingsQuote:
Yep, Rin is a interesting character and I'm looking forward to their interactions! Quite the opposite to Reina-chan, I instantly disliked her :/ maybe I'm a bit unfair here but she seemed so annoying and selfish. The whole family made a negativ impression, it was kind of pathetic how everyone made excuses why they couldn't take care of Rin. Still it's a bit weird that a 70 year old man could give birth to a child, I wonder if she's really his child or if there's another story to it.Quote:
Dai-chan seems like a nice guy, I'm quite curious how the both will influence each other. I'm not completely sold on the series but so far it did gave me a good first impression
Exactly! They should have never blamed her for her parents’ actions, she was innocent of it all. Nobody except Dai-chan took the time to notice that Rin was hurting too.Quote:
I’m sure we’ll get to see a lot of interactions between Rin and Dai-chan and I’m sure looking forward to them.Quote:

I think the purpose of Reina-chan was to highlight Rin’s good qualities and traits; they were easier to notice because of Reina-chan’s presence in the ep and because how different she (Reina) was from Rin-chan.Quote:
Well… men can remain fertile for much longer than women. Even though male fertility also declines with age, it tends to happen gradually for men. I don’t know if you are familiar with Julio Iglesias (he’s a Spanish singer), but his father became a father one more time at the age of 89.Quote:
I’m glad to hear that.Quote:

My thoughts while watching the pilot was, "Aww!" "Cute!" and "Adorable!" whenever Rin showed up- I was instantly smitten by her. Her shy demeanor intensified when she was contrasted with Reina-chan
who's a little rascal. She reminds me of Aki from flat in a way because they're both timid and have become attached to an unlikely father figure.
I thought it was mean that the relatives didn't want to take her in. There was no mention about the grandmother so it wasn't like the grandfather was cheating or anything. Perhaps it was Rin's age and the grandfather's age when he had the girl that made things awkward in the family.
I'm looking forward to future episodes because it'll be interesting to see the dynamic between a 30 year old man and his 6 year old aunt.
Reina wasn’t a very nice or likeable child I agree.Quote:
You’re very welcome.Quote:

Yay! Asarii is joining this thread!
Me too. It will be interesting for sure.Quote:
i wonder Rin will be more aunt or child ? it is hard to tell... i can't wait for see Rin said about his nephew Dai ... i hope it will more award moment in some place .. ...
If that's the case, the grandfather probably didn't want to feel lonely so he found new love. The house he lived in was pretty large so he would have wanted company to talk with.Quote:
i agree with you but i know that it was understand situation , Rin see him as caretaker .Also she had fear of abandon because she just recent lost her dad and mom run away .. she think Dai will too ..Quote:
watched esp 2... i love Rin because she is so cute and mild manner but she said about " sweat" that is funny scene ..
and hard raise child... I give two thumb up for Dai because he tried effort to care child and work , also he tried to stop smoke in his house since Rin ilive with him ...
i notice Asarii's comment about Grandpa .. that is fact , so many seniors need love too because his/her family grew up and left house .. it is not easy to live without children/spouse .. .Lonely is hard reality ... My grandma live with relative because she don't like Senior home ..
I wonder Who is "Masako-san " .. Rin's mother ? I hope it will happy end but i predict Rin's mother will return and take her from Dai ... i feel so bad for him...
I AM PROUD OF USAGI DROP FAN !!!

Yay, my most anticipated series for this month!
Finally got down and watch the 2 episodes.
I have to say that I really like Rin and she stole my heart I mean, I always like kids and all but she's just so special.
Daikichi also made me like him simply because he's such a kind soul. I'm pretty sure that him taking in rin and the parts at the kindergarten proves that and also that small little segment of him choosing not to smoke as the smell will get caught on Rin's clothes.
This is something that I dislike about his grandfather and their family as a whole.Quote:
His grandfather should have made arrangements for rin if he knows that he is going to pass away and even if he didn't know,
he still should.
If he really concern himself with Rin, he should understand that he can't stay with her forever
and one day he'll pass away, leaving Rin all alone.
If he really went through the pain of being lonely, he must be able to understand how Rin will feel.
I'm very realistic so during the so-called family meeting of who to take care of Rin,
I had this feeling that if I were there I will be like Dai and will keep considering, a child is a heavy responsibility,
one that none of the relatives wants to take in.
Dai's life after taking rin in is exhausting,
he have to handle his job and rin at the same time and then in the future many
other factors will come in.
I know cases where eventually people think of their children as nothing but a burden and I'm talking about children with their own blood.
Usagi drop won't be the case but there certainly will be a lot of things Rin and Dai have to deal with and this is one of the reasons why I was looking forward to it.

That scene was indeed pretty funny. XD She's so cute.Quote:
I hope this new life with Rin won't affect him in a negative way in the workplace. He's showing fatigue and hasn't told anyone at work about his new situation. Since they have no idea, they might think he's not trying anymore.
Loneliness is also why a lot of seniors buy pets to keep them company. We don't know why the grandfather bothered to have a kid instead. (He could have had a companionship rather than a sexual relationship with Rin's mother.)Quote:
I also wonder if the family found the grandfather's will. Surely he must have listed a candidate to take custody of Rin; he should have known that he wasn't going to live very long until she came of age.
The second episode was adorable, and I loved how the new daily life of Dai was illustrated. It must be hard for him to adapt because taking care of children is a lot of work- especially when the child is young as Rin. (If she was 12, she would be more independent.)
Rin was more assertive by choosing what she wanted to wear. She's still not as annoying as Reina though. XD
Watching this anime is a real pleasure. Great anime series and probably one of the best of this anime season.
- The OP is so sweet that just listening to it puts me in risk of getting cavities. I really like the OP song and the OP animation, it is different because two bunnies are the main characters in the OP but at the same time is so perfect for this series.
- Loved the interactions between Dai-chan and Rin, they felt real and I’m glad they showed that raising a kid is not something easy, especially if you are a single parent. This makes me wonder if a possible girlfriend for Dai-chan will appear in the coming episodes. As long as the girlfriend is someone who also loves Rin-chan, I’m all for Dai-chan getting a girlfriend.
- And yes, the last scene was funny “It’s sweat!”, but it makes me wonder if there is a connection between Rin doing that and her dad dying and her mom abandoning her. If Rin does that again (pees on her bed) then it certainly opens the possibility that she has been more affected by the loss of her parents that she appears to be.
- Looking forward to the next episode. ^_^
Rin doesn't seem to have any female figures in her life so it would be nice for Dai to have a girlfriend to fill in that void. Perhaps not too soon because Rin just got a new "father" so a new "mother" would be too early.Quote:
I took Dai's statement as a form of foreshadowing. XD
It would be really sad if that was the case. She's not the type to express her innermost feelings directly so we're still not sure how she's coping.Quote:
