Katakura Kippei is in every way a high school playboy. Spending his days flirting with any girl he can see, responsibility is the last thing on his mind. Life takes an unexpected turn for him as one day he returns home to find himself with the full-time task of caring for his 5-year-old cousin. Kippei's aunt Miyako had disappeared, appearing to have abandoned his cousin, Yuzuyu. With Kippei's lack of responsibility and knowledge of childcare and Yuzuyu's injured heart with the disappearance of her mother, their time together is in for a bumpy ride.

It is a beautiful Anime with, a very well-planned storyline.

Characters, despite their age, have great maturity. It's a show crafted very close to real-life situations. Kokoro especially comes out as a great character who handles her demons of the past in the best way.

The story is very well-rounded and with its heartfelt moments and warmth, this anime can is one of my top recommendations.

A supposed "hidden gem" that should have just been left in the dirt.

To begin with, I want to give my overall opinion on Aishiteruze Baby, before I explain it.

But after the extremely anti-climatic ending, it honestly felt like I should've just watched another anime instead.

Your standard shojo, Aishiteruze Baby is about Kippei, a teenage ladies man, who comes home one day to find that he is now in charge of taking care of his kid cousin Yuuzyu. This anime is packed to the brim with “Aww” moments. So if you like cute shows definantly check it out but beware; this anime takes several extremely dark turns. The romance scenes are cute despite the love interest being pretty cold to Kippei (but with his reputation that doesn’t surprise me). The art was mediocre at best and the music was your normal shojo stuff. I am not a shojo fan. ...
