drama romance shoujo slice of life


Katakura Kippei is in every way a high school playboy. Spending his days flirting with any female he can see, responsibility is the last thing on his mind. Life takes an unexpected turn for him as one day he returns home to find himself with the fulltime task of caring for his 5-year-old cousin. Kippei's aunt Miyako had disappeared, appearing to have abandoned his cousin, Yuzuyu. With Kippei's lack of responsibility and knowledge of childcare and Yuzuyu's injured heart with the disappearance of her mother, their time together is in for a bumpy ride.

Kippei, an highschool goofy kid who spends most time slacking out and flirting with girls suddenly is entrusted with a 5 year old kid to take care of. This setup evolves into an incredibly heart warming story to cherish and rejoice, dealing with everyday problems of raising a child and struggling with his own carelessness and ineptitude Kippey becomes attached to yuzuyu quickly and tries his best to make her happy. Dealing with a child everyday brings many worries and consumes most of his time but also makes him grow into a mature responsible person.

Dissapointed that nobody has written a review on such a wonderful heart warming anime so I guess I'll do the honors.

I'll first do recommendation for those who are too busy to read all of a review. I recommend this anime for everyone who wants to watch something touching. Not really a romance, its more of a slice of life anime that should be able to find itself on everybody's list. Its an anime without grand events or drastic plot turns, its just goodness that keeps on going.

The story starts right away and right away and right away you get caught by the cuteness of the read more

Aishiteruze Baby or "I love you, baby" suffers from a title that makes people believe it's a lolicon, when in fact it's a very hearfelt but very neglected shojo anime. Really, I feel this series is greatly undervalued, and it does not deserve it.
Enter Katakura Kippei, playboy absolute, who now has to take care of his five year old cousin, Yuzuyu. The first episodes are a bit slow and tiring, but I'm so glad I did not drop this anime,for I was in for a big surprise. What really drives this series is the characters. Kippei, despite his slacker manner and childishness, is read more

No action... No blood... No ecchi or fanservice... No politics... No mystery... How could this anime expect to get anywhere? What could it possibly offer? Mark it as a huge failure and move on right?

If anyone reading this were to do that you would be making a huge mistake. All this anime needs is the smile of a heartbroken child to wholly capture you and take you on an amazing journey. I don't care how bloody or epic you like your average anime to be, if you are honest to yourself, and at least partially human, you will be touched by Aishiteruze Baby. Give it read more

Same feel and similar plot.
A young guy takes on the responsibility of raising a young child. In both stories, the male lead finds the child's mother, and even let her see her little girl, but she makes it clear that she does not want the child in her life. The male lead also finds love with someone that becomes somewhat of a mother figure to the girl.
I can go on and on about how similar these two shows are, but instead, I'll just wrap it up by giving you my word that if you love one show, you will definitely - without a doubt - love the other as well.
Both anime feature a high school student taking on the responsibility of a young child, though the circumstances of the child are different (and therefore lead to different storylines), the theme is present in both. So for this reason I suggest Kure-nai lovers to try out Aishiteruze Baby, especially if the relationship between carer and child is what appealed to you.
how to take care of a baby? well these two anime can definitely help you out. Human baby or alien baby? when it comes to babies, they're a different specie from the adults!
taking care of a younger sister or something like that
Romance that is building up following the main character who is taking care of a child its a touching anime just like clannad I saw the recommendation of it and I watch Ababy in 2days <3 got to love it
Both involve story lines where two guys take care of young girl/girls while juggling their love lives.
