If you liked the Usagi Drop anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
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...
both of these are about guys who end up taking care of children, and although usagi drop just came out it looks like it will have a lot of the same cuteness.
both have peple that take in a child which are both shy it seems. AB has better animation but bunny drops just started so we will see
These two anime are for the ones who like to smile at pure sweetness, cry as they are moved to their cores and be warmed by wonderful emotions. The possibility of taking care of a child who has nowhere to turn for help, to raise and nurture it yet be entirely unprepared and uninformed for the actual work and hardship this entails is something we would most likely all want to do as humans, but would proboably shy away from should the occation arise. These two shows are about the two most unprepared men who by heart alone overcomes the impossibilities thrust in their faces! Love one, love the other!
A man alone, taking care of a child suddenly thrust upon him by circumstances. The theme is moving and full of potential for pathos. As much alike as Aishiteruze Baby and Usagi Drop are, they are nevertheless very different in one respect: The protagonist of Usagi Drop is a grown man, making an essential sacrifice of his life's path to take care of a child, whereas Kippei from Aishiteruze Baby is a somewhat more carefree high-schooler, whose major sacrifice constitutes having to give up his playboy ways. Even so, these are two stories about a grown man learning the value of his life through the obligation of being in loco parentis to a young girl. The two stories share a lot in emotional impact and underlying moral lessons. If you enjoy one, you are sure to enjoy the other.
Both anime were heart-warming, touching and lovely anime. Cuteness, pureness and innocentness of children will totally lighten your spirits.
in both anime a young(ish) man begins to take care of a small girl that nobody else could be bothered to take care of. Ai B is a bit shoujo-y than Drop, but they are both endearing shows that will make you D'awww during nearly every episode
Each deal with guys that never thought they would have to fill the role of parent for a young girl that has been put in life changing predicament. Both girls come from mothers that for whatever reason cannot support their children and are in some type of emotional state. Each takes slice of life moments with a dash of drama to keep the story interesting.
One has a mature, good natured, hard working, responsible adult as the parent, the other has a teenaged playboy.
Aishiteruze Baby is a nice show, but in all honesty Usagi Drop is by far and away the better series (especially if you've ever had to raise kids).
These anime are very very similar its almost too obvious to rec them. Unprepared male characters suddenly become surrogate fathers to young girls whose mothers are not fit to care for them. Character development is central in both. Usagi Drop is a josei version of the shoujo Aishiteruze Baby and this can be felt in the script, however, Aishiteruze Baby has equally mature themes, if not more so, on offer. Both generally blend slice-of-life and drama with great character interaction. Both have good supporting characters too, though animation and music is surpassed in Usagi Drop! That said, character design alone is lovely in both.
Daikichi's development in Usagi Drop is more interesting than Kippei's probably due to the age gap but Yuzuyu in AB is more of a realistic child character than UG's Rin. So it's worth checking both out because although they are similar the child-parent relationship on offer is unique in both.
Both anime are about a male who has to take care of a girl. In each, the girl is roughly the same age. The main difference lies in the leading male characters — in Aishiteruze Baby, the leading character is a high schooler playboy. In Usagi Drop, the main character is a 30 year-old salesman in a department store.
Aishiteruze Baby focuses more on romance (not loli romance, there is another female there) and is much more dramatic; Usagi Drop is much more toned down and is more realistic. Both are good, depending on whehter you want slow-paced or faster-paced.
Both stories focus on a guy who takes on fostering a small child. In both stories you get a guy who has to learn to change his entire life style. In both stories you get a very very cute child who says very cute things. In both stories you get a very emotional heart warming story about love, family, and friendship.
Both are about young men learning how to take care of a relative's child. Kippei and Daikichi aren't really sure what they're getting into at first, but they both learn to find joy and fulfillment in being a caretaker.
Aishiteruze Baby and Usagi Drop because both Kippei and Daikichi both take in a young girl. They both made hard decisions and sacrifices for the well-being of the child. While Usagi Drop has a more independent and a more serious mood to it than Aishteruze Baby, both of them show the fun, hardships, and development between the two.
As you might guess, both Ookami Kodomo and Usagi Drop tell a beautiful story about a parent raising a child (or children, in Ookami Kodomo) alone. While they are both heartwarming tales, the characters indeed have tough obstacles to overcome as raising children is no easy task, especially when the parent is on their own. Great character development, attractive animation, and very loving moments are included in these two anime. If you liked one, you should definitely check out the other.
Usagi Drop and Wolf Children both chronicle the life of, er, slightly unconventional families, and some of the troubles that come from this. Both are heartwarming and absolutely adorable.
Both anime are coming of age stories for both the parents and the children in unusual home situations. Both feature strong lead characters and relatively simple animation styles. Despite the unusual circumstances in both anime, they hold a surpringly down to earth view of life and the challenges that come with it.
Heart warming animes about the love you can receive from raising children. Great tear jerkers, i wasn't crying a storm or anything, but i couldn't stop my eyes from watering up. The children are a bit strange in a way too. Wolf children is as the title says, they are the children of a wolf man. Usagi Drop, the Rin is Daikichi's "aunt". i said "aunt" for a reason, and the only way to find out is to read the manga. Enjoy!
They are both light hearted and cute :3 <3
umm anoo i dont know what else to write >///<
Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.
though clannad goes a little more dramatic in some episodes, the main focuse of both stories is family and how they grow and develop. and the second half of afterstory relates a lot with bunny drop.
Both of the animes are about being a family and the beautiful and difficult times you'll face as a parent. Although Clannad has more drama in it, it's still shows the love between an adult and a child. They are both beautiful!
Usagi Drop is a lot simpler and contains little to no drama, but like Clannad After Story they focus on the father-daughter relation and the fulfillment that comes with raising a child. Also Uchio and Rin are both incredibly lovable characters.
Both deal with single men having to suddenly take care of a young female child. The interaction works like a father-daughter relationship, and shows the development of having to care for children that may be young and somewhat naive yet mature for their age. Croisee deals with young Japanese girl living in France for the first time during historical times while Usagi Drop takes place in modern Japan. Both have the same slice-of-life feel that focuses more on the endearing and developing interaction between newly-father and child and less on romantic drama.
Both are extremely similar in that a child is left in the care of a childless male protagonist, Usagi Drop is certainly more focused on the relationship between parent and adult whereas Ikoku Meiro no Croisee emphasises differences in culture and a more typical child/adult relationship.
Both of these anime are about a cute innocent little girl coming into the lives of young men who end up taking on a role of looking out for and/or taking care of the little girl. In both, the little girl forces the men to change the way they look at life and grow as people. We also get to see the little girls grow and mature as they experience new things.
If you like Usagi Drop or You Are Umasou then you might like the other because they're both about someone who has to take care of an adopted child and about the hardships in rasing that child.
Hands down the two cutest anime I have ever seen.
Umasou and Usagi Drop are about adult males who suddenly and unexpectedly find themselves the caregiver of the two cutest children in the entire (animated) world. One of them is a dinosaur. The other is not. Anyway. ADORABLE!
Usagi Drop and Umasou both feature cute and loveable characters. They also bring up big emotional scenes that might just bring a lump to your throat.
The biggest difference is in action, where Umasou takes much more initiative as it is about dinosaurs.
