Wanna know what's awesome about getting old? It's actually a whole plethora of things.

You don't have to keep up with what's 'hip' and 'trendy' (that's for people who get you Your coffe ... unless You made some wrong turns in life) or try very hard to make You look more successful than You really are. Sure, You get fatter, balder and much, MUCH more cynical but ... you know ... you get Your own apartment and independence and ... and ... and a VERY pretty apartment that you furnish yourself alright?

Having said that - this anime is a perfect guilty pleasure of older people.

 

First - the story. 

There is none.

A bland, forgettable Hero takes care of his newly found stepdaughter. Either You get it or You don't.

 

Second: the animation.

This is one of those bland-and-forgettable fantasy worlds that are based on some generic game so ... it's not perfect.

Having said that the daughter character is adorable, so I'll give it 9 out of 10.

 

Third: the sound.

The sound is ok. I can't really say anything more about ... again.

Try to be more distinctive Anime!

Music design is one of the more important parts of any visual media !!

 

Fourth: the characters.

The characters and the relationships between them are the strong points of the series. They're horrible and forgettable - at first glance. The whole point of the series though is to show the audience how and why people change when they have children in their care. When You judge the show and the characters based on this premise it's pretty great.

I mean ... the characters are so boring ... but how they react to our stepdaughter is sooo adorable ... and relatable. Our main protagonist especially has a distinctive arc - if You can count attitude towards childcare as a character progression.

Verdict

If You're nearing or over you 30-ties - try out this show. It won't change Your world, but it sure as hell will put a smile on Your face.
