Man, what the hell is an "Ecchi" tag doing on this anime?

This anime has all the components of a successful emotional anime. It deals with the themes of loss, family and survival in a mature way and can make you tear up at more than one point, while portraying daily life of the protagonist with a sense of realism and without the tropes found in many anime.

If there was no "but" following this anime might be considered a mini-Clannad by those who viewed it.


The writers inexplicably decide that a show about loss, family and perseverance is somehow the right time to add run-of-the-mill read more

Here's a multiple choice question before I begin talking about this series:

What would you do when your carefree life is suddenly being thrown into unsettled chaos when three girls, a middle-schooler, a fifth-grader, and a toddler wants to be under you care due to an unprecedented tragedy?

A) Call the cops
B) Try to find another babysitter
C) Slap yourself twice and tell yourself that this is all a dream and you'll wake up soon.
D) Take responsibility, learn about the value of family life, and take care of them

If you choose D, then kiss your carefree life goodbye and hello to responsibility of being uncle, big brother, and read more

First of all, I would like to announce that I'm an idiot for not finding this animation sooner, which is one of the better manga series I've read. For Pete's sake, I'm late for about three years. No use crying over spilled milk.

I write this review assuming you've watched the series. Worry not, it doesn't contain any spoilers. Oh and a little more, I've been writing a lot of reviews on MAL but I didn't read one of the guideline, "Don't include story summaries, read more

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!
Both are very similar involving younger girls. One of whom looks and is voiced by the same VA as Rin from Kodomo no Jikan. Also both are guilty pleasure level =P
it's not THAT similar, it's just that both anime has a guy that's, for Astarotte IS a father, and in papa is just kinda like a father, both taking care of a child. Astarotte isn't a story about that though, papa is more of a family story, and Astarotte is more of a romance stuff

Both involve story lines where two guys take care of young girl/girls while juggling their love lives.
In both series the MC takes an older brother/guardian type role for a cute girl(s). There is a focus on overcoming obstacles as a family and a light sense uncle/bro-con (crush) in both also.
Both shows feature a young male protagonist trying his best to take care of young children. They both focus heavily on character development, and both try to paint a nuanced picture of the social interaction between the two/the four of them.
