I loved the anime, i know the manga ending as many friends told me to continue reading since anime cuts off and that it'll rage me, and yeah, it definately did.
Its good just where the anime ended, daikichi and rin father relationship bond, eveyrthing is happy, and daichiki and nitani (kouki's mom) has a good relationship. in my opinion the full ending should be daichiki and nitani gets married kouki and rin still childhood friend and they both become successful in life after a good education. fuck the manga incest end and all the bullshit!

8/10...^_^ It would have been a 9 or a perfect 10 if they added 1 or 2 canonical episode/s(not those specials) since i have a strict anime standard on a minimum of 12/13 episodes.

The adaptation was a breath of fresh air. Its been 3 years, since clannad after story, that i watched a very bonding family-oriented anime. The production, soundtrack, and story flow was topnotch eager to interpret such simple yet fruitful plot...kudos Prod I.G. for the quality control \m/

Well, im getting spoiled by the manga rumors, and by hearing that it would be nice not to give them another season(and won't read the manga) XP; better end the anime that way. They could let the live-action movie(or series?) do the rest i guess, and stay away now to the cute 2D Kaga Rin :3...

Usagi Drop is such a heartwarming and light-hearted series. Ahh i was hoping Daikichi and Kouki's mum to be together... i mean look, they're pretty compatible. :) I wonder if there's a second season!

This show REALLY needs a second season. This was well on it's way to being a 10/10 for me but there's so much more that needed to be done. I didn't even realize it was this short until episode ten and I was so disappointed because it's so fun and easy to watch and get into.

The only thing i see wrong with this anime is its length... i need more of it... and I need it now.
It would have been nice to see a little more closure. They elaborate a lot on the possibility of Yukari as a possible partner for Daikuchi, yet they idea kinda stays there. Also more elaboration on with Masako and Haruko. They are pretty much the same, Masako gave up her family for her own personal goals and now she suffers and Haruko puts her family first but she is hardly happy with the current situation.

9/10 - A second Season would definitely turn this into a solid 10
huh?

Well I don't know if you guys read the manga, but anime isn't even close to the ending. I'm sure they are thinking of making a second season. Look at Bakuman...it got it's second season...eventually...So I'm guessing at some point later this year we will hear news of Usagi Drop Seas on 2 :D

Finished this the other day, and I loved every episode of it. So heartwarming... :'3

10/10 from me.

A second season would be awesome, though judging from all those comments about the manga ending, I would hope they'd take an anime-original route...

I swear I could see the whole life of Rin without getting bored. Her first period, boyfriend, college etc. Then it would be great to see how Kouki's mom and Daikichi get together. I need a second season.

I loved the develop of the anime. The way Daikichi is learning to be a father and how it is not important not to have time to himself because he love Rin <333 so simple but yet heart touching. The beauty of life in a very short story. Sublime.

Also, EVERY.SINGLE.FACE of Rin made me go AWWWWW <333 and almost everything Kouki did, made me laugh hard xDD so, 10/10 it is.

This was one of the most heartwarming series I have ever watched, but I feel so much more could have been done. Rin almost seemed to perfect. She never caused any major problems for Diakachi and almost raised herself. I really wished they did a full episode where Diakachi and Yukari switched kids for a day. It is clear that Yukari and Rin can connect really well in the few instances we see and that Kouki could really use a father figure in his life. The closest the show does to showing that is when they all go shopping together. It would have been beautiful if there was a scene where Kouki would ask Diakichi for help in learning how to play baseball (because Diakichi did say the reason he got his job is because he is good at baseball) and Kouki opens up to Diakichi.

I would love for another season, but I doubt I would enjoy it as much if the follow the manga (from what everyone has been saying). Anime series have broken off the manga for various reasons, and it would be interesting to see if they do it for Usagi Drop.

This is where you are wrong. You will understand why if you read its Manga counterpart. It would upset too many viewers.

Definitely a hard-warming anime from last year and something of an unique gem. I wouldn't exact call it a masterpiece tbh but it's definitely something unique is one of those rare titles that doesn't follow into the typical cliche of sexual, gore, or violence content category. In its truest form, this anime series adapted from the josei manga stays true to its origin and brings realism in its purest form.

Overall, I liked this series and give it a 8/10.

Never before have I worn such a lopsided grin throughout a series =)
Rin is adorable till the very end and Daikichi trying so hard has a really touching effect!
Pure and unadulterated joy to behold. 10/10.

Just finished it myself after postponing it for way to long, and I agree.

I kept a warm lovely smile throughout the whole series, it just felt very pleasant to watch to me. It manages to stick in your head without anything drastic happening, wich is really impressive in my opinion.

I guess the reason why I was postponing it might have to do with the art though, it felt a bit strange at first, but after 2 episodes or so, it really grew on me. I'd even go so far to say it fits perfectly for some reason!

The only sad thing was that when I finished it, I didn't realize it finished, I was expecting more, though that doesn't mean it was a bad ending.

well, the first half is like the same as the anime (i think the anime's better tho). the second half...not so good, but still enjoyable (she's not a cute little kid to protect anymore).
the ending...that's where the problem is.

Really nice ending still thing there could be lots of new story's to develop as the ending was rather wide open but still it was a short but great and heartwarming story to watch!

Great anime in general if there ever would be a sequel I would definitely watch it! 9/10

i wouldn't give a 9 to a series like this, but at the end i realized the important message that this series brought to me, maybe a 9 is still a low grade, but that's because i think it is a more mature series since i don't identify myself among the characters because i'm still a teenager, maybe in a few years i'll re-watch it.

and rin is such a lovely character, one of the cutest i've ever seen

9/10

Just finished - really beautiful and wonderful series, but I was disappointed there wasn't a bit more finality with the Daikichi/Kouki's mom (can't remember her name) romance. It definitely made the story feel incomplete for me. I also expected something more with Rin's real mom. The last 4 or so eps instead kinda felt like just more sidestories of their lives, which is great, but nothing much happened. Of course I can speculate that Daikichi and Kouki's mom get together, and that Rin's mom just keeps manga-ing away, but could have been better ending.

I wish the series wasn't over. I wanted more to happen with the mother, more backround information about the affair, romance for Daisuki (he would make a good daddy for Kouki xD)- and just more life experience for Rin because seeing her smile makes me happy. God... I hate short season syndrome.... SSS kills another good anime in its prime >.<

Pretty much sums up how I feel. 3/5 for this episode, 9/10 for this series as a whole.

Great ending, very heart-warming and beautiful ;_;
Btw, after this I checked up the ending of the manga. I knew from a lot of sources that it was bad and should never be seen. And I agree to the fullest. Biggest bullshit and betrayal of a story about family I've ever seen. I don't have to pretend not seeing it though, I can easily seperate the two stories/endings. So I'm just gonna write about the anime here.

When I started it I already knew I was gonna love this. Though throughout the story I was expecting a Key-like sad ending. I'm VERY glad it didn't happen.
I didn't really have any major problems with the anime, only smaller ones. One of those is that the shortness of the show, I want more :( (anything but the manga continuation of course)
Another one is Masako. For obvious reasons. I'm glad she didn't come back to take Rin away, she is a bitch.
All of the characters were great of course (again, except Masako). With Rin and Daikichi far at the top. Rin is one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. If I ever have a daughter I really hope she will be like her. And Daikichi is also one of the best fathers. He is clearly fit for the father role. I can accept that Rin won't consider him as her father, him being 'just' Daikichi is great as well :)
My favorite thing about the anime was the interaction between the characters, and I mean all of them. It was clearly one of the strongest points of the anime. I wish Kouki and his mom would have get together with Rin and Daikichi as a family, they were all so nice together :)
The comedy, the story, the art and the sound were all great and contributed a lot to the overall enjoyment of the anime.

I loved this anime. Even though it wasn't on the level of my favorites, which I consider masterpieces, I still think it was very wonderful. It was truly special to me and made me think a lot about family. So for this I'm gonna give this anime a 10/10. I hope they will make a 2nd season in the future with an alternate ending from the manga. Even random episodes would be fine :)
Well, I'm off. I'm certainly gonna rewatch this in the future :)

One of the nicest series in a long time. And yeah, I'm signing up for the DaikishixNitani club. I mean come oooooon! It couldn't hurt, but I guess it would call for additional episodes. Nothing bad in that, if you ask me.

I aggree that it's all too simple in this anime if you take a general family, and Rin is just perfect. Yet the anime references many things related to childhood nicely. I could watch more of it but it's fine as it is.
Why do most of good anime end up being shorter than they could be and very generic ones see 4 seasons and more? *sigh*

Also, I appreciate the spoilers. Wouldn't be nice if I went looking for the manga and found it as it is. I'm not exactly against the kind of relationships it's going to show, but I'd prefer more obvious and logical pairing and I'm sure that would make everyone happy. I think Yukari is amazing (yes, I'm biased). I don't hate Masako even. It might be interesting to see her getting along with Daikichi and Rin or even making a family of sorts (who will parent who?) - but this lot of complications is not for the compact first season. Not meaning to turn it into a harem anime, mind you, with Daikichi and his MILFs.

I understand 1st season was not about Daikichi finding a wife\mother for Rin, so I try not to feel frustrated by lack of development in that department. Nice and simple is good too - there is a sense of harmony with these series, I value such. It's also beautiful. However, it did leave me wanting, not just at the end. For this and for somewhat idealising parenting experience I will give it 9/10 as a whole.

If they do a second season, they better reinvent it to be alternative to manga, since the mood and themes change anyway and too many people complain about Quality Drop (pun intended).

From a personal side, I dislike unrealistic portrayals of happy families in anime (not meaning I like to watch realistic ones). Usagi Drop manages to mention both troubled and happy relationships without going into details, but then Daikichi - Rin were unusual family from the start and Rin is unusual girl also, so I could just go with it.

Seconded. She is so my type.

Edit: I just read a synopsis of the manga.. I'm heartbroken. It is turned into a stupid meaningless love drama. I don't even want to see Season 2 now. And I will not read the manga until later too. I'm just too disappointed to see a beautifully crafted series like this to take such a disgraceful turn.


My condolences.
