Yuuta Segawa has just started his freshman year of university. One day, his sister Yuri, who raised him after their parents died, asks him to take care of her daughters Hina, Sora and Miu while she and her husband go overseas on a business trip. Yuuta grudgingly accepts, but tragedy strikes when their plane goes missing and all passengers are presumed dead. In an effort to prevent the three girls from being split up, Yuuta goes against their family and takes them in, just as his sister took him in when he had no one else.

Now the four find themselves in a new and peculiar situation: Yuuta must learn how to balance his new responsibilities—as the newest member of the Street Observation Research Society, a club for people watching, and also as a father figure—while Sora, Miu, and Hina come to terms with the loss of their parents.

I've been told to read the manga to understand what happened and why,
but why would make an anime but make us read the manga to understand the ending?
but i did enjoy it for the most part and found it very cute.
i think the art style is not the best, but its nice.
it was very funny at some parts, and was a great anime for just chilling with some fan service.
i loved the girls, they were adorable and i loved how they all needed some ...

Today I’ll be reviewing one of Sentai’s newest works, Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! or PapaKiki for short. Much like the critically acclaimed Usagi Drop, this slice of life anime involves a young man whos world turns upside down when he finds himself a guardian due to unforeseen circumstances. Unlike PapaKiki, however, Usagi Drop was actually an enjoyable experience. There are so many things wrong with PapaKiki, it was almost unwatchable for me.
The premise itself doesn’t ...
