Responsibility, when thrust upon you as sudden as lightning, could be at times life-changing indeed, and reflects how much you have to improve yourself for the sake of accomplishing a goal, or in the case of Otaku no Musume, sacrificing your desires in exchange of a lifetime commitment, that is, taking care of a child of your own blood.

A "normal" person slowly discovers the secrets of otaku.
Slice-of-life titles that depict what it is like living in a Japanese apartment. Both titles frequently show interactions between, and meddling amongst, neighbours.
In both of these titles, the male protagonist suddenly finds himself taking care of a young girl. Both titles explore not only the difficulties involved in being a single parent, but also the happiness it can bring to one's life.
Similarities:
- slice of life
- deals with otaku culture
- a young girl enters the main character's life which changes their lifestyle
- a good balance between comedy and drama
Dad comes home and finds a girl he must all of a sudden take care of. That girl turns out to be his daughter. The difference between the two: Otaku no Musume-san is more light-hearted and comedy-driven while My Girl is more serious and drama-driven.
Slice-of-life titles that follow the lives of a number of characters living in the same setting.
