I started watching this movie knowing little more than that it was directed by Satoshi Kon, and even though I'm a fan of the man's work in general, I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

STORY - In brief, Tokyo Godfathers is a heart-warming Christmas story about family. Slightly elaborated, it's a rather unique slice-of-life movie featuring a less-than-average family. Sure, inspiration was taken from an old western film (3 Godfathers), but I haven't seen it, and I don't think having seen it would have affected the charm of this one. (Other than the bare bones, the details of the two movies are vastly different anyway.) read more

From the creator of Perfect Blue comes Tokyo Godfathers.

Story: This story is about 3 homeless people (a washed-up father/husband, a homo, and a runaway teen) during the Christmas Holidays. The story gets going when they find an abandoned baby at a dump site. Even though one of them wants to raise the baby himself, they knew that they couldn't, so they go on a search for the baby's parents. As this search goes on, they start to learn about each others past's and we see how it ties into the present.

While it may seem like a pretty straight forward concept, Kon Satoshi manages to fully read more

Recommendations

Even though the stories are entirely different, one about saving a baby and the other about saving a town, in the end the ones who are truly saved are the main characters that fought to protect what's important to them. Tekkon Kinkreet is just as heart-warming as Tokyo Godfathers.
The style of Kure-nai immediately put me in mind of Satoshi Kon's work, especially in the character design (not only the art-style, but how well-developed the characters are). Both of these anime have people from less-than-perfect circumstances raising a child as well.
