These four little specials are so cute. At five minutes each they're a perfect filler between episodes. Usagi Drop has been named as a slice of life anime, well these little shorts are like a slice out of that first slice of life!

I think these episodes followed on beautifully from the parent anime, the sound and the style seemed the same to me, as did the characters. Of course in five minutes you can't always expect the same character development from what you get from something twenty minutes long.

Although I would have loved to have seen something like the Episode 3.5 "Dear My Santa Claus" read more

Usagi Drop is one of the best slice of life animes around. It depicts the relationship between a foster parent and daughter accurately while tellling an entertaining and in depth story. These four short specials complement the series, providing some extra content to fit in between some of the episodes.

At five minutes per special, there isn't much time given to develop an in-depth story. Instead, the focus of each special is on a certain event or moment in Rin's life, for example; leaf collecting. Each special manages to capture the essence of the parent series. While they're short, they're exactly what you would expect after read more

Fantastic little short episodes which bookend a handful of episodes, best watched in sequence with the series proper, as they extend the narratives of the corresponding episodes. I enjoyed how each one corresponded to seasonal shifts in line with the main episodes' progression of seasons, as was shown in the end credits for the specials and episodes proper. The seasonal progression over the course of the series was a similar aesthetic to what Production IG did with the credit sequences in Kimi ni Todoke with seasonal shifts shown through art in the credit rolls, definitely a nice touch to help show time progression in a read more

I'm going out on a limb here and writing this based on the first Special, "Aquarium of Leaves".

I loved the manga and almost flipped when I found out that they were going to do LAM and an animé. At the same time, I was somewhat leery of them taking too many liberties and ruining something I cherished. When I found out that they only had the go-ahead for one (half) season, I wondered if they were going to super-compress the story or restrict themselves to the first portion.

But I'm not writing a review of the parent series, in spite of how it seems at the read more
