Well I was actually waiting for a heart warming anime, since I haven\'t seen anything since Clannad After Story.

Agree with above, this is an anime in my taste. When I watch it, I really long for kids of my own.

About the artstyle; it has a nice, gentle touch to it. I like it.

Those calls when you only hear someone breathe... yeah, that\'s me.

After the last episode I was like \"That\'s It!?\", I wanted to see the development of character, though I know how this would end, even if I did not see the manga. I would like to see and alternate ending though, no clue if there will be a second season, I would like to see one though. Look forward to seeing the specials subbed, am goin to keep an eye on that :)

It was awesome. Period.

Manga has
[spoiler]timeskip to Rin\'s puberty. It\'s not that bad just different from what drew most of us to the series in the first place.[/spoiler]

Man I should have seen the Current Anime section, there is already a thread for this in there, maybe an admin care to merge this topic with that one, just edit my first post here and add the final airing date to the other thread.

Also I read that the manga has a twist as to why his grandfather was Rin\'s father, also why she called him gandpha. Even at that age, after I read the manga, which I got, I will talk about it in the manga section. Yeah they do a time skip, I read about that at AniDB and Wikipedia.

Rin-Chan will most likely be in the profession her mom is in or be an artist IMO from how well she draws  :silly:

I liked the art style on this though, seems painted rather then filled in with color on some scenes, simple yet no problem with it, I enjoyed this series a lot actually. Still waiting for the BD or DVD version.

Usagi Drop is in many ways pretty much some of the best stuff I\'ve watched in a while. It\'s so different from anything else I\'ve rated worth watching. Got what I\'d expect from episode one and then some, the rest of the episodes making it one of the Top10 anime I\'ve watched.

*bows* Thank you very much.

If you liked it that much you should try Aishiteruze Baby. Pretty much the same with one difference: guardian is a high schooler.
