Usagi Drop

Usagi Drop

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.

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.

Xplayer

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 >///< 

IchiRukiloove1

Both slice of life and coming of age anime. Both movies are about a single parent who struggles to raise the child/children. Wolf Children has elements of fantasy to it, it's about half wolf and half human children, other than that it's all real. Wolf Children has much more romance in it, and Usagi Drop has little here and there. Both focus on family, the importance of family, and how sometimes life in a family can be hard. Both are very emotional and it will lead you to tears. Both are very satisfying because they are very realistic, also really engaging. Watch both, and you will never regret it.

My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro

Satsuki, her younger sister Mei and their father have just moved to their new home in the countryside, where grand adventures await them. One day while playing outside in the garden Mei encounters a small creature and decides to follow it. After chasing it through the bushes Mei eventually finds herself at the base of a large Camphor tree and as she drops through a hole in its roots, she lands on the stomach of a large, sleeping forest spirit named Totoro. The two sisters befriend the gentle spirit and are soon introduced to a world more fantastical than they could ever imagine, from playing with soot spirits to meeting a Catbus, to flying through the air and even making the trees grow. However when Mei disappears, Satsuki must call on the help of her new friends if she wants any hope of being able to find her sister...

I got the same happy feel from both, also the character Yuki (when young) is similar to Mei. Both move to the country side.

CommanderKarasu

Heartwarming and gorgeous, these two films take place in the countryside and offer a lovely mix of slice of life and fantasy. Ookami Kodomo focuses on the hardships of raising children alone while Totoro is a little bit more on the adventurous side, but they'll both tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more. 

Wolf's Rain

Wolf's Rain

Kiba is a wolf, one of the last of his kind, and his dream is to find Paradise in a world torn asunder by war. Cheza, the legendary Flower Girl, can lead him to Paradise, but there are others who desire her, and help from other wolves at his side may not be enough. Driven by his noble spirit, he will not forsake his quest.

Both of these anime's have a very similar feel to them.  There are moments of joy and fun but at the same time there is an underlying theme of sadness.  The two also explore the idea that wolves are actually disguised as people.  There are also some subtle environmental themes that are explored in both.  If you liked Wolf children chances are you'll enjoy Wolf's Rain.

In both these films, a mother and her young child(ren) relocated from a big city to a rural farm/town after the death of her husband. The stories diverge from there, but both have a similarly charming rural magical-realism thing going on. Recommended if you like family films that mix realism with a touch of the supernatural.

Both are about wolf-people, although Wolf Children is based in a more modern setting then Fuse Teppou Musume and both are a bit melancholic.
