Raising a child isn't easy, and every parent or guardian knows just how taxing all of the daily tasks can be, the sacrifices that need to be made in terms of work and social life, and the almost constant stream of considerations and worries. The truth is that looking after children is one of the biggest causes of stress and grey hairs (or hair loss), amongst adults, but given that the majority of people in the world are (or will be), parents, it's a little odd that such a major topic is still a rarity in anime.

“Daikichi… Daikichi, wake up.”

“…mmhhh… Yes.”

I’m happy. Why? Well, because this show did so much right that it’s tough not to be. Usagi Drop stayed true to the essence of the manga (before the timeskip) and didn’t stray far, if at all, from the original story progression. It captured splendidly the little nuances of an abnormal parent-child reality.

Our lives are full of insignificancies. Waking up irritable and half alert, washing your teeth, brushing your face, fumbling to find your valuables, grocery shopping without a list. The shit we wade through daily but clean up and forget soon after. These are experiences almost all can relate read more

Recommendations

In both series, a single male adult opts to take on the responsibility of looking after a child (children) due to a force of circumstances. Both are warm and atypical anime series. Usagi Drop has a MAL average of 8.65, which should say it all really whilst Papa etc. is let down by its dubious name, which I am sure will detract viewers away from a really lovely show. Both recommended!
A heartwarming tale with a lighthearted mood to go with the idea of taking care of children and parenting. That is a major theme in both series.

In both series, there is the idea of growing up. However, it is up to the parent to take care of them and raise the child to become independent.

There is a slice of feeling that goes along with the concept of parenting. After all, raising a kid is not easy and often comes with challenges and struggles. Yet in both series, the characters gets along well together and they take on life itself with that slice-of-life feeling.

The main characters in both series also has similar personalities and although they struggle at first with taking care of children, they learn more along the way about kids and themselves. It's a discovery of parenting and presented well in a realistic way.
