      Spoiler: episode 10 
    Oh nos Rin is sick. Thank god, this is not a KEY visual novel, so she'll live.

    Children are fragile things, and since Rin is fairly mature for her age, she hasn't been too hard to take care of. But hey, illness gets the best of us, and it can be scary when children are sick and you don't know what to do. It's one thing to take care of yourself, but to take care of someone else when you're not completely sure on how they feel can be frustrating. Dakachi's been pretty much living alone til now, so he surely has a handful this time.

    The biggest problem is that regardless of remedy, it's gonna take time to recover, but fortunately Yukari knows what to do, but wait she's no longer sick but Yukari's not that well; ah crap...

    This is probably one of the biggest hurdles yet. It doesn't seem like that much, but for someone who just started to learn to take care of the child it seems appropriate to make this the last arc for this season.

      Spoiler: episode 11 
    That was a nice ending to a nice, short series. One thing that really stood out for me in a good way was a light touch of BGM and animation flourishes during the last few minutes of the final episode. Nothing over-the-top, but still something striking enough to effectively tie the series up and leave off on a strong note.

    I will say, though, that I'm slightly disappointed that Yukari didn't end up with Daikichi romantically, but I guess this might be a basic case of source material constraints affecting the anime.

    On the whole, a good heartwarming ending, and an interesting and often compelling commentary on parenting from a wide array of perspectives. Perhaps it's for the best that such social commentary was a major, but subtle, focal point in this finale.


      Spoiler: final impressions 
    Usagi drop make me all fuzzy and warm inside and is one of the top series this year. This series chronicles the life of single parents, showing the challenges they face, but also the wonderful things they get back for it. The way this series has handled its themes are quite clever: at the center we have the main character Daikichi who ends up having to take care of his 9-year-old niece Rin. throughout the series, he runs into all kinds of people who are in similar situations, and because of that this series can show many different sides of the same coin.

    Another major strength of this series is that it’s pretty much the most realistic series of the entire year so far. It doesn’t try unrealistically force its drama, and the things that Rin and Daikchi do throughout the series all feel wonderfully down to earth. Most of the show is really seeing the two of them live out their daily lives, and this is very well described and written.

    I really liked it as well. From what I remember, it felt very real, and was always nice and warm. Used a nice soft, washed-out colour pallet that doesn't get used all that often.

    I was going to read the manga because I wanted more, but I didn't think I could bear to watch Rin grow up. XD

    This one was one of my favorites. A very good slice of life anime, cute and bittersweet.

    While I didn't read the manga, I always wondered how the second half would have done as an anime. Not a necessity, just an interesting thought.

    definitely a great series, shame it didnt get a 2nd season.

    also, the live adaptation was a shambles, i highly suggest not watching it lol

    I really adored this series. It was heartfelt and genuine
    I watched in awe and some bewilderment Rin and Daikichi's relationship.
    Grew to love them by day's end.

    Sweet series and well worth watching, if you like your
    anime more on the heart warming side, with a hint of reality.
