Chisato is a beautiful 35-year-old writer, who looks like 18, and the father of Riju, a cute 15-year-old boy. Chisato's hobby is to drive away all of Riju's friends because he thinks they want to corrupt his precious child, so he shows his good side to these boys while he poisons the cake he brings them with a smile; however, there is one guy, Shunsuke, who doesn't fall for the tricks. But is Shunsuke really aiming for Riju? Who is that mysterious writer Chisato loves so much? And why is Chisato convinced that Riju's friends want to take advantage of him?

The first and, in my opinion, most important aspect of a good Anime is an engaging story played out by equally interesting characters.
In this case I'm sad to say that the plot is nothing too special, it's actually quite sappy and a bit generic, even for this particular genre (and the whole 'must protect son from everyone' is just plain weird). In most yaois the characters are pretty much made after the same scheme: one character is extremely jealous, the other one is your typical, naive, clumsy uke and another one a cool macho. Although Kirepapa contains these models, they're matched up in a slightly read more

Although this has the overused storyline of one character secretly in love with another, and plenty of the typical misunderstandings, confusion, denials, secret obsessions, etc, it has light humour as well, good artwork and sounds. So overall I would rate it average to good. If you are looking for a lightish yaoi story with some kissing, petting and the final (but discreet) boom-bang, then this would be good for you.

I enjoyed watching it although the secret love/confession was getting to be too much, it didn't last long enough to be truly bothered by it. Nice, but I wouldn't bother to watch it twice.

It barely passed.

The story seems to be something quite overused in many yaoi anime (or even normal guygirl romace. Or even Yuri.): "OMG I'm in love with this person but I've never seen him but owh my gawd he was just under my nose all this time!!!" I mean it's like, "Give me a freaking break. Another one?" And then you'd just walk away and roll your eyes. And even the conflicts are way too commonplace- "oh my gosh i can't accept you because you're my son's bestfriend" and the whole "my-family-won't-accept-you-so-do-I-break-up-with-you-or-not" kind of thing. Absolutely nothing can catch your eye, and all ideas are read more

To summarise it one word : Hilariously brilliant.
Oh wait, that's two.

The story may not sound compelling to you at first : A beautiful father is highly posessive over his equally cute son. Nearly everyone is gay here, even the father.. (Which makes me wonder how he became a father in the first place..) Well no matter how cliche or overused it may sound, the main focus of the show isn't the plot, and if there WAS a plot, there's no way it would have been able to develop within these 2 short episodes, which is partly the reason why I wish there were more episodes.

Anime: Papa to Kiss in the Dark
shounen ai animes with great comedy moments, both stories spin around very smexy "papa" and his sweet young son

Anime: Junjou Romantica
Shounen-ai. BoyxBoy. The stuff, you know.

But that's not the only way the two anime are similiar.
They're handling a pairing (well, Junjo Romantica handles 3 pairings, but I'm talking baout the MAIN pairing) with a huge age different.
Also, they have a lot of comedy elements and contain a lot of chibis/SDs.

Anime: Ikoku Irokoi Romantan
Barring the obvious yaoi linkage, these two shows feature a protagonist who falls for an awesome guy "friend" before they know it. Also, they are made by the same animation team so the artwork is really similar. However Kirepapa is lighter than the Ikoku Irokoi and doesn't have some annoying woman gumming up the works.

Anime: Koisuru Boukun
Both are pretty humorous I must say, and both have one of the guys not only older than the other but also have a relative they cared a LOT about, and try to do their best in protecting their well being. The main difference is in Koi Suru it's a little bro when in Kirepapa it's a son.

Anime: Houkago no Shokuinshitsu
First, Boy x Boy love. Second, quite the same character pairs and behavior scheme. Third, the same plot organization:
ep 1. - the establishment of the relationship,
ep 2 - problems, problems...
The art style is quite different though. So be warned.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Both are light-hearted comedies featuring a lovable buffoon (Chisato/Tamaki) and a healthy dose of shonen-ai.
