When Daikichi's grandfather dies he leaves behind a young daughter named Rin. However, as most of the family is embarrassed at the idea of a 79-year-old man having a six-year-old child, they can't seem to figure out what to do with her. Disgusted by this behavior, Daikichi decides to take care of her himself, but he's a bachelor, has no idea how to raise a child, and isn't even all that comfortable with kids! Now, Daikichi must do the normal things a parent does such as enroll her in school, buy her clothing and teach her about the life and world around her. But more importantly, he must also help her deal with her father's death and decide whether or not she should try to find her mother. Together, the two begin their unlikely relationship as father and daughter, navigating each of life's bumps along the way.
A grown man finds himself unexpectedly in the constant company of a cute young girl who makes his life both more fun, and more hectic, as well as instigating moments of genuine introspection about his life. The interactions between these two central character in each show is top notch, with Usagi Drop perhaps being more dramatic and serious in tone to the more comedic nature of Barakamons couple, but the pairings definitely overlap in all areas plenty of the time.
If you're looking for a sickeningly cute or funny show, or one which deals with child/adult relationships then you could do a lot, lot worse than give either of these shows a whirl.
If you enjoyed watching a man learn to interact with children, then you might also like Barakamon. Despite different storylines and circumstances they do show the fun side of being around children as well as the frustration of setting a good example as an adult. Both stories tend towards the layed back and comedic but also have a good plot and story progression.
Both series revolve around a relationship of an adult man and a small girl. The atmospheres and the style of drawing are quite similar. While Usagi Drop is serious, Barakamon is a comedy.
it has a bit of the same atmosphere, however barakamon focusses a tad more on caligraphy and the overall interactions with the islanders and usagi drop focusses more on the relationship bbetween daikichi and rin and how it feels to be a parent
both are really good anime though and they give off a really great vibe, they also both have really nice animation (quite different from each other but still)
if you like one you definitely like the other
It has the same atmosphere, the only difference is that barakamon is comedy, instead of usagi drop which has drama. Both of them are nice, just give them a chance and you will not regret it ;)
Both anime mainly revolve around a man acting as a guardian/father-figure to a young girl and how they change each others lives.
They're both very funny, and very, very heartwarming. Barakamon leans more towards the funnier aspects while Usagi Drop is more sweet and heartwarming. Either way, they are both excellent.
If you like one of them, you NEED to see the other.
Both have an older male learning to deal with and interact with children. While usagi drop is about learning to put someone else before yourself, barakamon is about interacting with multiple children and allowing them to help you grow as a person.
Both are Slice-of-Life that talks about the relationship between an adult man and a young girl, Usagi Drop have a sad beginning and more heartwarming feeling, Barakmon is more silly and funnier, and both of them will make you happy inside.
Both anime contain plot about relationship beetween an adult man and small girl. But Barakamon is acomedy.
Both are heart warming and at times heart wrenching pieces. The humour is light and child inspired.
Both shows are slice of life stories with an adult main character and how they bond and grow with a younger child around them. Barakamon is a bit less serious they both offer good messages to viewers. If you liked one you're sure to enjoy the other.
This is another feel good anime that makes you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. This anime involves a little girl that shows an adult the joys of life.
two cute anime's about single men learning about life from the perspective of sweet little girls
Both are anime about child care with slice of life, light comedy and drama. Colourful/beautiful enough animation to compliment it's plot which is that adult characters taking care of a young one also get to learn and grow from them.
About the same feel older guy stepping up to take care of an orphan child whose only other family are elderly if you like one you'll Ike the other
When Yuugo Hachiken enrolled at Ezonoo, an agricultural high school, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. While his classmates revel in the barnyard chores and hard labor, eager to gain skills for their careers, Yuugo is challenged and sometimes downright horrified by the things he’s having to learn, whether he’s corralling stray cows, learning the shocking truth of where chicken eggs come from, or even getting comfortable with riding a horse! Alongside peers such as the lovely Aki, Yuugo will learn all he can about agriculture, making close friends in the process.
Each of these series kick off by introducing the viewer to a main character who has moved into a rural, and alien area from the big city after a crisis of confidence in his life. The story then follows him as he adapts to his new surroundings, a different pace of life and a quirky group of people who keep him on his toes while he searches for himself.
Both series are a fairly relaxing watch, with lots of really fun character interactions and well placed humour that ranges from smirk inducing to full on laugh out loud. If you enjoyed one of these shows for either of those reasons, then the other may well be right up your alley.
If you enjoy the gentle comedy mined from the culture shocks a city boy experiences out in the country side, you'll love Silver Spoon and Barakamon. Both are beautifully animated, and Silver Spoon is genuinely educational about farming while Barakamon expresses the annoyances and strengths of village communities. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll appreciate the other.
While the settings are different, they're both "fish out of water" stories, where the main character is placed in a 'world' he doesn't quite fit in, but comes to appreciate more and more over time.
They are both anime which set out to make you happy all the way to your core.
If I compare Barakamon to any series which is delightful & comic at the same time , only silverspoon comes to my mind. both are about a socially akward person who got invoved in a out of place society for him and....... you will see
Although both stories have differing plot and scenary they do have some common points. Each show has a main character being thrown into a completely different environment, and seeing how they adapt to the new way of life and the people around them.
Aomori, Japan. In a land blessed by nature’s bountiful beauty, bizarre things begin to take place. Makoto Kowata, 15 years old, is a professional witch. She left Yokohama with Chito, her black cat, to live in the house of her relatives in Aomori. This is where she begins to train as a witch. Even though Makoto’s powers are still limited to just flying through the sky, she and her second cousins Kei and Chinatsu surely make the most out of each and every day.
Although Barakamon doesn't have the supernatural elements of "Flying Witch", both slice-of-life series possess a similar laid back countryside atmosphere that viewers of the SOL genre are sure to enjoy.
Both anime are a slice of life anime, that are slow paced, but have lots of comedy and action at the same time. They're both feel good anime's.
Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.
Great slice-of-life atmosphere featuring an adult male and a tiny, adorable little girl that you'll just want to take home and keep!
Too-adorable-to-exist little girl is the reason male protagonist starts to get his life together. Cuteness ensues.
That's about the gist of both these anime. Sugary sweet, yet also heartfelt and touching; it's just slice-of-life at its best!
Souta Tawara, 30 years old. On a visit to his hometown, he meets a strange child who loves udon and frogs... and has ears and a tail?! Souta is a web designer living in Tokyo. Back in his hometown after his father's death, he finds a child sleeping inside an iron pot in the family udon restaurant. Although ordinary at first glance, it turns out that this little tyke is actually a tanuki in a human disguise! So begins the tale of a gentle, warm, and slightly weird family in Kagawa prefecture, better known as "Udon prefecture," where time passes at a less hurried pace than in the big city...
Both have a single man who goes to the countryside and finds himself while dealing with an adorable little tyke who shakes things up.
Both follow a slightly finicky man struggling with their future/jobs and how they gain happiness from the simple influence of a child. Barakamon has the MC struggling with inspiration as in calligraphy, while in Poco the MC is a web designer contemplating whether to move from Tokyo and if he should keep his job or not.
In Barakamon it's an adorable but mischievous little girl, and in Poco's in a sweet/pure melt-your-heart boy.
If you like shows where the MC kindly takes care of little children and worries about them in a cute manner, while also resolving a few slice of life problems, you will most likely find both of these shows likeable.
