Usagi Drop (2011)

Usagi Drop

Daikichi went back to his hometown for his grandfather's funeral. only then did he know that his grandfather had an illegitimate 6-year-old daughter named Rin. the mother was unknown and Rin was treated as an embarrassment to the family. the relatives eagerly wanted to get rid of her by sending her away for foster care. Daikichi got annoyed and decided to take Rin home despite being single and having no experience raising a child.

the anime followed closely the life of Daikichi and Rin after he brought her home from his grandfather's house. the story was shown in a relaxing style throughout the show, yet it was sentimental enough to draw tears at some point. the watercolor-like drawings reminded me of Hourou Musuko (2011), which was produced by the same director. despite the laid back pace, it was entertaining and easy to watch, definitely a heartwarming duo that fit into each other's life perfectly.
