Daikichi's grandfather dies, leaving 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 doesn't even like 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.
Meet Yotsuba Koiwai, the strangest little girl around. With a mind so straight it's twisted, Yotsuba takes everything in life at face value and sees everything with the eyes of impenetrable innocence. With her laid-back father, Yotsuba moves into a new house and makes new friends - friends whose minds boggle at the wacky and somewhat wise way that Yotsuba lives her daily life!
Both of these series are about a single man trying to raise a young daughter, despite having no knowledge or experience raising kids. Both stories are filled with the misadventures of of these young girls & their adopted fathers. While yotsuba is more comedic than usagi drop, they have many similarities, and if you liked one you're sure to enjoy the other.
Both of these series are very similar - in both content and quality. Bunny Drop has a bit more drama, while Yotsuba focuses moreso on comedy. They are both equally enjoyable though, and a good read whichever one you read first.
If you liked Aishiteruze Baby or Usagi Drop you would like the other because they are both about single young men that are suddenly forced to be a guardian of a very young girl, and both take a while to get used to one another, with many mishaps and quirks along the way.
Both stories are about a young man who suddenly has to take care of a young girl relative of his, who abandoned by her mother & whom no one else in the family wants to take responsibility for.
Both of these series are about a young man suddenly looking after a young child. The child in both stories is self reliant (often more so than the young man) and quite shy at first, but the young man helps bring them out of their shell (while learning more about himself & about life in the process).
Sixteen-year-old Mikako Kouda has two loves in her life: fashion, and her childhood friend Tsutomu Yamaguchi. Though she dreams of creating her own clothing brand someday, Mikako's true desires lie with Tsutomu - but there's a problem: he's dating the voluptuous and highly-sought-after "Body-Ko!" The two longtime companions seem to have feelings for each other, but school, other relationships and additional obstacles continue to stand in their way. Will Mikako and Tsutomu ever be together?
This recommendation is for the second half of Bunny Drop.
Both are character-driven dramas set in high schools, featuring love polygons that tend to rely a tad too much on angst and misunderstandings. The realistically nuanced relationships make up for this.
