When bachelor Daikichi Kawachi attends his grandfather's funeral, he is surprised to find a mysterious young girl alone in the garden. To his astonishment, the shy and reserved girl, named Rin Kaga, is believed to be the illegitimate child of his late grandfather.

Due to the shameful circumstances related to the little girl, no one in the family is willing to take her in following her father's death. Infuriated by the coldness extended to an innocent child, Daikichi announces that he will take care of Rin himself, despite his young age, single status, and lack of parental experience.

Usagi Drop follows the story of Daikichi and Rin as they try to find happiness and purpose to their fateful meeting.

It was not as bad as people say it is

So, many people who have seen and loved Usagi Drop definitely aren't a fan of the manga due to its not well received ending. OF course I have heard of the ending before watching the anime which ended up being one of my all time favourite anime. Then I wanted to witness the ending myself and so I did.

Mixed Feelings
The first 24 chapters or so were simply a pleasure to read. The ideas and themes, though typical for this kind of narrative (certainly that Usagi Drop's influence can be felt in slice-of-life works today) were done in such a mature and thoughtful way, the pacing was just right, and the way the manga told and executed its story, through the eyes of our protagonist and budding parent, Daikichi was just great. Reading about the nuances of parenthood and the internal struggle of feeling lost despite being a central figure to look up to for a child was just an interesting read. So far, I've ...

Yup, the other reviews were right. This shit was weird.

the first half of this manga is a very touching and heartfelt display of an unwilling father coming to terms with the new responsibilities that come with raising a small child. There were some parts of the story that had me smiling from ear to ear. It was very cute.

There are lots of people that complain about endings ruining a good piece of media. But normally that is because the ending falls flat, or the ending does not give them the satisfaction that they desire. This, though, is one of the rare circumstances where the ending ...
