We're pushed into a story where it starts calm, then the sad part hits. To some, they might tear, I completely understand the motive behind each character's decision, but it really doesn't drag me into the main story much as I didn't care for the characters that much during the beginning, I had enpathy for them but caring was still lacking.

This isn't a AAA+ action anime, it's realistic modern day Japan, so all the actions or... most of the non-sexual ones seem logical to me. The jokes are funny at first but they're overused way too much throughout the series.

[SPOILERS AHEAD] Sorry, but in order for me to write an honest in-depth review about this anime, I feel as though some spoilers from both the OVA AND THE LIGHT NOVEL are necessary.

Story: (I am only talking about the 2nd ep not the first, the first is more or less a filler, plain fan service) In this part of the OVA, Miu, Hina, and Sora's parents come back as harmless ghosts for one day after 4 years since the incident. The whole episode is seen from their point of view and in this episode we see a whole bunch of changes between everyone and read more

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

Anime: Usagi Drop
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!

Anime: Astarotte no Omocha!
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

Anime: Aishiteruze Baby★★
Both involve story lines where two guys take care of young girl/girls while juggling their love lives.

Anime: Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
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.

Anime: Kodomo no Jikan (TV)
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 
reportRecommended by Riptos
Anime: Kure-nai
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.
