When 30-year-old Daikichi returns home for his grandfather's funeral he meets an unfamiliar child in the garden. His mother explains that Rin is his grandfather's illegitimate daughter by an unknown mother. The girl is an embarrassment to all his relatives and nobody wants to take her in because of the scandal. Annoyed by their attitude, Daikichi decides to take care of Rin himself, even though he is single and has no experience raising a child.

Warning: Massive ending spoilers ahead. I'm very sorry but that 6 up there can't be properly explained without delving deep into spoiler territory.

I wish Usagi Drop had 2 separate entries, one being the start and one everything after the time-skip, starting in chapter 26. It's for one very simple reason. Usagi Drop is a prime example of how a great concept can still run off the rails badly. It's a masterclass in turning what starts as a warm, cute and fuzzy story into a catastrophic failure of a 'romantic' drama.

The gist of the premise is that Daikichi (a man who couldn't more obviously be unhappy read more

This story should have been a 9 or 10 overall. However its time skip destroyed everything that made this manga so enduring.

WARNING!! Spoilers ahead.
It isn't possible to discuss why this gets such a bad score without delving into spoilers.

The first 25 chapters were brilliant they were heartwarming and enduring. They brought out all of the good feelings you could possibly want from it and they were golden. A solid 9 even 10.
They were all focused on Rin and Daikichii becoming a family and the struggle of raising a child as a single "parent" and the finding the joy that a child could bring to your read more

(Review Contains Spoilers,you have been warned)

I love the first half,easily a 10/10 for me when it comes to slice of life...Then the second happened and suddenly,this enjoyable series became painful to read. Everything turns depressing,relationships are messed up and honestly what kind of audience was author going for? Pedobears? Those are the only type of people I can imagine who would read the first half hoping for the ending that happened at the end.

The reason i give it a 6 is because despite the messed up second half, I still enjoyed the first half and giving it anything less than 5 would be a read more

Usagi Drop is a example of how quickly things can go wrong. For the first 24 chapters - which the anime covers - it is as good as slice of life dramas get. For once the premature ending of an anime is actually a good thing. In the manga version, every relationship built in the first 24 chapters is systematically demolished. As the end approached, I found myself hoping against hope that the decline would stop. That Usagi Drop would return to its senses. However, the last chapter serves only to crush the cherished sentiments of what was a promising beginning.

Aside from the read more
