Apologies for the lateness. The last few weeks of school orientation have been insanely busy, plus I came down with a cold which has not helped things at all.
If 30-sai was a manual for 30-year old virgins, Usagi Drop is sort of like a manual for 30-year old fathers… of toddlers I suppose… which provides some good advice.
Usagi Drop hasn’t put too much focus on Kouki so far. I actually was pretty ok with this, because I thought Kouki comes off more bratty than mischievous in the manga. And while he’s still a bit of a ragamuffin, the anime does a lot better job at giving him more depth and making him more likeable.
I thought the latest Usagi Drop was the weakest of the season, mostly because of how heavy it was on the Masako characterization. But was it just me? Was I being too harsh? I decided to consult a second opinion with megas kawaii blogger, Blindability from Bokutachi no Blog.
Watching Usagi Drop makes me want to become a parent, especially if the child is as well-adjusted and well-behaved as Rin. Maybe this was a ploy by the Japanese government to raise birth rates? Uh oh, this is dangerous… Right, Bea?
Another great episode of Usagi Drop. How would you rate it so far? Is it a great show? Is it a better show than even we think? Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing it a disservice.
Daikichi meets Rin’s mom, and takes another step at becoming a father-like figure to Rin.
Nothing in particular seems to really happen in each episode of Usagi Drop, but then you look back and realize the kids are growing up so quickly.
There were so many lovable Rin moments this episode. I just like sitting back and watching Usagi Drop unfold. It just brings a smile to my face.
More than the bundle of cute that is Rin, Usagi Drop is really about Daikichi and the changes he makes to his life after unexpectedly picking up a child.
