Synopsis

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 REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

I have a feeling that most people who have given this series a high rating haven't finished it yet. I mean I went from giving it a 10 at the beginning a 6, almost 5 at the end. The reason for this is the time skip that happens all of a sudden at like chapter 27 or something. Should have stopped there. And I suggest you do if you want to believe the end is a little cliche but happy ending. I actually wouldn't have minded a tragedy ending, pretty much anything other than the way it ended.

Ok I'll leave the read more

Never before have I read a manga that felt so different throughout the whole reading process. Really, if it were anime, I would think that after the first part the creators ran out of original material and decided to improvise from that point on to the very end. But of course, it is not so: ‘Usagi Drop’ is a manga created by one person, Yumi Unita, and surely as an author she has every right to do anything she considers necessary in terms of a story and plot development – but I have to admit, her vision is a rather strange one.

Usagi Drop is one of those manga I just randomly stumbled upon, read the description and put it on my read-it-later list. Months later when I remembered I actually had a list, I went back to read it. I regret putting it off for so long.

Usagi Drop follows Daikichi on his journey from being a bachelor to being a guardian for a little girl who is actually his half-aunt. When everyone else in the family makes excuses to not keep her or disapproves of little Rin, Daikichi takes custody, slightly disturbed by the shallowness of his relatives. The two start to grow accustomed to each read more
