Before I begin, the warning. This is a discussion that covers the entire manga, up to the end. If you haven't read up to the ending, then do not read any further since this discussion will contain spoilers.

I put up a poll asking how do you want the anime to adapt the ending, or how should it end. The options are:

1. Animate only the first half prior, to the time skip.
2. Anime both before and after the time skip, and including the ending.
3. Anime both before and after the time skip, but change the ending
4. Other (explain).


Simple poll, vote away ^^


My choice, the first. I would like them to only animate before the time skip. I loved the relationship between Daikichi and little Rin; him having to learn the hardships of bringing up a child, but beauty behind it. His guardianship/father-daughter relationship was what made the first half shine. The story after that changed the point of view to Rin. The story became very different, it was mostly about Rin and her friends, just like a school manga. The relationship that I had liked in the first half was rarely seen. I mostly skimmed through that half.

The ending is a whole topic on its on. The relationship completely changed from the relationship between Daikichi and Rin in the first half. If you loved the prior relationship, the latter became a problem, and something hard to comprehend. Some like the twist, but I think the twist goes against the very essence of the first half. Its the choice of the mangaka, but I felt cheated.

End before the time skip.

Incest ending is dumb and ruins the father/daughter relationship, and nobody gives a shit about some angsty teen and her love troubles.

Stay as a cute little girl and a man learning what it means to be a father.

I can honestly tell you that they will probably only animate the first half.
I base that on a couple of reasons:

1) There are only 11 episodes. There are not enough episodes to go through 9 entire volumes of the manga.

2) I checked the cast on the official site. It only lists one voice actress for Rin, and this voice actress is a little girl of only 10 years old. The fact that the official website doesn't list another voice actress for grown-up Rin hints that the second half of the manga WON'T BE ANIMATED. Same thing for Kouki.

It's unlikely that they will suddenly spring a surprise on us by animating the second half without announcing the names of the entire cast beforehand. (E.g. for Bakuman, Hiramaru made a few random cameo appearances in the first season but the animators didn't properly introduce him into the first season because there wasn't a seiyuu listed for Hiramaru yet.)

So I'm guessing that yeah, they will only animate the first half. Perhaps for the last 2 minutes of the last episode, they will show us a snapshot of everyone 10 years after and end the anime with that.

That's what I'm thinking but who knows what really may happen?

Yeah, since 11 episodes isn't nearly enough to animate all the way to the ending, it's safe to say the anime won't be going past the time skip, which is a good thing.

The time skip just made the manga feel completely different. It's boring and not nearly as good as the first half. And then when I read the spoilers for the ending, I really had to wonder what the author was thinking spiraling her manga downhill so fast. I haven't finish it though so I'm trying to have a little faith she can salvage it in the 5 chapters that aren't scanlated yet...but I really doubt it.

Thanks for letting me know that its only 11 episodes. I am not certain if that will be enough to animate the first half properly, hope it is!

I'm all for the 1st option. I adore the manga up until the time skip. After wards it wasn't as good but I could read it. The ending that I heard with Rin and Daikichi...fail. Do not like the sound of that at all. Completely different feel from the relationship I loved in the first half. So with 11 episodes I can feel safe that it's gonna stay with young Rin and lovely father Daikichi!
Oh, and to answer the above questions I hear that yes they do get together for some reason. -_-

I warned not to read the spoiler!^^;
If you aren't comfortable with that ending, don't read the manga beyond the time skip. The anime should be fine.

I totally agree, but I just want to point out it's not incest because they aren't actually related.

Unfortunately, we don't learn that until incredibly late in the game, making it seem like it came out of nowhere.

hearing about this ending almost makes me want to drop it. One of the reasons I really liked this series because I didn't think I was going to spiral into something incestuous. All I wanted was a normal yet sweet father-daughter relationship, the mangaka didn't need to add a twist like that to make the end enjoyable.

Probably only the time she's still a kid, because even though I don't read manga, I saw the manga cover for the final volume with her being the highschooler (?) (older).

And that's another issue. The twist came the fuck out of nowhere, near the end of the manga.

I sincerely hope they don't try to cram in the time skip in a mere 11 episodes.
But dang, that was the worst second half of a manga I have ever read... :(

I have no problem with full story being told as it is in the manga. I think some animes get ruined by directors that no faith in the original creator's story and finding a need to make the story better in some way. I know some might say that is just "creative license". But, changing little things for story continuity is one thing, but changing the whole context of the story just because they didn't like some aspect of the story itself makes me wonder why they would chose to adapt the original story in the first place.
