Whenever Kippei is at school, he has one thing on his mind: girls. From skipping class to cheesy lines, he'll do anything it takes to reel the ladies in, though he never seems to find the right person. But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...
When I finished watching Aishiteruze Baby, I loved it so much I dearly wanted to watch something similar. I wished I had discovered Aka-chan to Boku at that time. These two anime share the idea of an older boy taking care of a young child. Aishiteruze Baby is a little more mature with characters in high school, while Aka-chan to Boku deal with younger characters, but the warmth, growth and tears of both shows are unmistakeable. Yuzu and Minoru show us that children are not as simple and happy-go-lucky as we think they are. On the brighter side, their love for their guardian is adorable!
Aka-chan to Boku is lesser known but I'd highly recommend watching both of these shows. Very heartwarming!
Setsuno Muda is a high school boy with a cruel fate, trapped in a forbidden love for his blood sister and inhabited by the spirit of the Organic Angel Alexiel. As the final battle between Heaven and Hell approaches, and forces gather against him, he must soon make decisions that will inevitably alter his future for better or worse. But for poor young Setsuno, his anguish and torment might be more overwhelming than the blood on his hands, as conflicts are settled and lives are changed forever...
If you liked how serious topics were touched in Angel Sanctuary or Ai Baby, forcing the characters to make decisions because of their loved ones and family, then you'd like the other. Angel Sanctuary is way shorter, with only three episodes, but both have a familiar feeling.
It's been three months since the last two Clow Cards were transformed by Sakura and Syaoran, and Syaoran and Meiling have returned to Hong Kong. Life has moved on as normal for our heroes and heroines, including the exciting news that Sakura has been chosen to be a princess at an upcoming school festival! But trouble arises when Clow Reed's old mansion is destroyed and replaced with a Carnival. And with it, bridges, sign posts and even people begin to disappear. Dark magic is afoot; can Sakura manage to stop it, even if it means losing the one she loves the most?
Both Aishiteruze Baby and Cardcaptor Sakura seemed to be aimed at a similar audience. Also, the artistry in both animes are quite similars. Some of the characters' personalities are similar as well. If you enjoyed one, I think you will enjoy the other. Aishiteruze Baby might be enjoyed by a bit older audience, but either way, they are both cute, heart-warming animes.
Miyu's parents have big dreams: her mother wants to explore the universe and meet aliens, and her father wants to develop a new space shuttle. In order to accomplish their goals they decide to work at NASA; but due to their inevitably busy schedules, Miyu is sent to live with a friend of the family. On the day she arrives at her new home, her caretaker leaves on a religious pilgrimage, leaving her alone with his son Kanata. To top it off, an alien baby crashes into the house that night! The ship is too damaged to fly so the baby and his pet/baby sitter decide to live with Miyu and Kanata until help arrives, whenever that may be. How can two unrelated middle school kids learn to live together while raising a baby that insists on calling them mom and dad?
Daa! Daa! Daa! is a cute and sweet series dealing with issues of how a baby who has been flung across the galaxy could miss his parents, and how his earthling junior high foster parents take care of him.
Aishiteruze Baby is a more serious and grounded family story with a hormonal male teenager who is appointed to take care of a girl who's barely five years old.
Both series are about teenagers growing up by the events brought about by a child unwittingly left to their care. These makeshift families makes for strange ones, but are still family nonetheless. If you like kids and the slice-of life genre with a little bit of romance, you'd surely enjoy these.
In a futuristic world, the virtual world is merely a layer on top of reality; within it, cyberpets are abundant and information is plentiful, and it is only visible by wearing special cyberglasses. In Daikoku City, this cyberspace is behaving strangely: cyberpets are going missing, dark entities known as "the Illegal" roam obsolete space that shouldn’t exist, and a large pink antivirus program known as Satchii wanders the streets, attacking both virus and pets alike. Sixth grader Yuko Okonogi has just moved to Daikoku City, and after cyberdetective children help her rescue her lost dog, she soon joins the others in a search for the truth behind these strange occurances.
Both anime create a light mood, but at the same time they hint at something darker. Also, they both have a refreshing portrayal of children who actually act like children, without being annoyingly "cute".
