Kimi ni Todoke

Kimi ni Todoke

Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.

In case you're into the type of anime which uses beautiful canvas colouring, accompanied with light music and a heartfilled plot, these are definitely the kind of titles for you. The setting is about the same, the story is different in some ways, but you end up in both with strong feelings towards the characters, wishing that could get away for a second and join them in their world.

Both of them are cute set of short little episodes in characters life. There are no "full" plot, but it isn't nesessary in this case. 

Both are non-dynamic, calm series. Watching isn't boring but interesting.

There are many differences that separate Penguindrum and Usagi Drop, so at first this may seem like a strange recommendation, but hear me out.

Penguindrum is full of beautiful imagery, metaphors and has a very distinct visual style that weaves its way into the telling of the story, which at times verges into dark territory. Usagi Drop, on the other hand, is a very straightforward tale of a man raising a child. Usagi Drop's visual style is softer, and it's story is so lighthearted and heartwarming, I guarantee you'll smile while you watch it. Penguindrum is a much more fantastical in its storytelling and themes, while Usagi Drop has nothing of the sort, instead opting for realism. Lastly, it's also important to note that Usagi Drop lacks the bizarre sense of humor Penguindrum has.

Despite these extreme differences between the two, there is one key reason I feel these two shows go together well -- the concept of family. The idea of what it means to be a family and the bonds that connect family members are important themes that resonate throughout both shows. I feel as if you liked the concept in one, you will probably enjoy the other.

Also, both Rin from Usagi Drop and Himari from Penguindrum are super adorable -- both characters' silly antics and cute facial expressions made me giggle and smile while watching. I highly, highly recommend both!

Hagu and Shuuji's relationship in Honey and Clover is very similar to Daikichi and Rin's relationship in Usagi Drop. Besides both shows have a mature feel to them and yet are lively, energetic and funny with a youthful spirit.
