A heartwarming tale with a lighthearted mood to go with the idea of taking care of children and parenting. That is a major theme in both series.

In both series, there is the idea of growing up. However, it is up to the parent to take care of them and raise the child to become independent.

There is a slice of feeling that goes along with the concept of parenting. After all, raising a kid is not easy and often comes with challenges and struggles. Yet in both series, the characters gets along well together and they take on life itself with that   read more

The troubles of raising children from a single parent's perspective. Ookami Kodomo has a super natural aspect to it, while Usagi Drop fits into the real world.

A strong parent/guardian who makes numerous concessions in their life for the sake of raising a kid/children.

Both also have actual children as seiyuu for Ame and Yuki when they're young.

Both show the struggles of being a single parent caring for children. They are slice-of-life anime that are really really heartwarming.

They both are simple stories about life. While ookami has a plot in the last 1/3, Usagi Drop continues to have the simple tale. That doesn't mean they both are bad, since they don't have plots. It's actually their simplicity that makes it so engaging. They both heavily emphasize about how cutesy both animes are suppose to be and we grow with the characters. they are both fun and have magnificent storytelling that makes the characters extremely gratifying.

Parents make all sorts of sacrifices to raise their children. These sacrifices are compounded for single parents. The reward of seeing their children grow is quite motivating. Both are centred around such stories and are told from the parent's point of view.

The artwork and sound track to both are absolutely great.

Usagi Drop has a much more happy and light feeling to it where as Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki has one of the saddest openings ever and a bittersweet ending, especially if you are a parent.

Single-parenting with extraordinary circumstances.

They are both about the idea of growing up; being raised by a parent until they are capable of being independent. The animation style for both titles are very simple but bright, and their ost, in my opinion, sound very similar at times. Although Ookami Kodomo no Ame To Yuki is about raising wolf-children, rather than human-children, both anime have the same feeling to them while watching; the viewer could even feel accustomed to the idea that raising animals as their own children is perfectly normal, making both titles, naturally, a relaxing watch.

Both about raising a child alone with one of the parents is missing and both have the same aura

Wolf Children and Usagi Drop are both stories about singular parental figures raising difficult children, and the problems that they encounter along the way. Both have amicable characters and heartwarming moments. Wolf Children is more abstract and deals with heavier subject matter and emotions. Usagi Drop stays conventional and for the most part, light-hearted. Wolf Children is a movie, and Usagi Drop is a short television series, so they're paced differently and have different stakes. It's hard to pick a favorite between the two stories. They're similar in some ways, and different in others.

Similarity
- point difficulty of single mum/dad that have to raise kid alone

Difference
- Ookami (movie) is a lot more struggling because the mother has to raise her two werewolves kid in human world alone since they were born.
