Both anime have the same vibes s a father figure caring for his daughter and both are wholesome and also emotional

Sabure Sabure says...

If Latina and Tsumugi ever meet, I guarantee that they will become instant BFFs. Both these series show the two young ladies viewing their respecive worlds through their innocent and precarious eyes, while their fathers work and sacrifice to make their lives easier as they deal with the trials and pangs of single parenthood.

Manthika Manthika says...

As for shows that made my heart feel good and healed my soul, both of these fit the bill.  Adorable father-daughter bonding, supremely wholesome, with classic funny moments that just make you laugh out loud no matter your mood before watching. 

jomuir jomuir says...

Lighthearted  and fun with some serious undertones. Excellent story about a single parent trying to take care of their child

Shacayna23 Shacayna23 says...

Both anime has a light feeling, with the father taking good care of the daughter. Both have their cute, funny and rather emotional moments of the child growing from their fears into a childlike innocence.

In a world where the ruined human species has been driven almost to extinction by the monsters that now dominate the land, a forest golem is surprised to find a human child sitting alone in the woods - dirty, barefoot, and in chains. The golem takes little Somali under his protection and the two begin a journey together, traveling through beautiful and dangerous lands where the small girl's humanity must be kept hidden for her own safety. The golem hopes to find Somali's parents alive somewhere, but the chances of this are slim; and besides, as far as Somali is concerned, she has already found herself a beloved father.

Sabure Sabure says...

Both series feature an adorable orphaned little girl being raised by an unlikely single father figure. While Somali's forest golem father is more stotic than Latina's adopted father Dale, they both care deeply for their daughters and will do anything to protect them. Somali and Latina have a lot of similarities - they're both cute, innocent, view the world through their own precarious eyes, come from tragic backgrounds, and have a weakness for cats.

Crua9 Crua9 says...

Both have the same feeling. Both have a girl follow an adopted dated. Both the guy is trying to find out more about the girl. The only difference is the It's for My Daughter and the other is that one you don't have anyone who will actively try to eat her if they find out her breed. 

alp2va alp2va says...

Only two episodes into Somali and it's clear that the two shows are very similar. Both center around finding an abandoned girl and raising her as if she were your own. Both focus on not only the relationship between the two main characters, but also in establishing and explore the fantasy worlds they live in. Somali seems to have a much clearer greater narrative whereas Demon Daughter was much more character-focused. But both are so freaking adorable that if you liked one, you'll surely like the other!

Jayage Jayage says...

both of these are very similiar animes, both are fantasy animes where grown man finds a very young girl in an forest and decide to adopt her, the only different is in Demon lord the man is a human and the girl is demon, well in the Forest Spirit the man is golem and the girl is human.   

towerroad towerroad says...

a little girl finds a father and lives in an other world. Wether it's a demon girl in the human world or the other way around. Very emotional and cute.

Both series revolve around a relationship of an adult man and a small girl. Although the world in which things happen are different the atmospheres are quite similar. While UchiMusu is fantasy, Barakamon is a comedy in "real life".

Both are fantasy land based anime surrounding an overpowered main character taking care of a kid (kids) they met. My Daughter anime is like level 1 in terms of overal quality and story and Death March would be around level 3. The opposite can be said when it comes to Moe or overall kawaiiness

He and Noah wait patiently for random strangers to come and buy their discarded belongings, but the only folks who show up are people (and creatures) they already know - and their customers seem more interested in causing a ruckus than buying anything.
