Bunny Drop

Bunny 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.

I think that Usagi and Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai are basically the same story just the main character who is taking care of the one who has lost their parent is 19 and is going to college and is not taking care of one but three children. Because of the age difference from the Daikichi to Yuuta opens up a lot more problems for Yuuta and it gives a more of a comedy role than a serious one of Usagi. At any rate the animes are almost mirror images of themselves if not for the age difference of the main character and the comedy rather than the seriousness.

The two have the same basic premise, though Usagi Drop lacks the buffering comedy element that Papa no Iukoto has. So, if you liked Usagi Drop but it came on a bit strong, Papa no Iukoto will be right for you, while if you liked Papa no Iukoto but the comedy felt out of place, then Usagi Drop is right up your alley.

Raising children- is the common element shared by the both series with lot of love and affection. if you liked one then you can't miss another.

zetazach zetazach says...

Both Papakiki and Usagi Drop are about a young man taking in a young girl/ young girls and overcoming the endeavors that come with it. While Papakiki has a more upbeat comedic taste, Usagi Drop has a more calm and mature flavor.

Similar stories, done in a different style, If you liked one chances are you will like the other.

The storys are similar but not at the same time because in usagi drop the mother abandons the kid and the father dies but in this anime both the parents die a sudden death and the mothers brother decides to take in the kids and raise them the same way his sister raised him when there parents died.

memojuez memojuez says...

The central theme for both anime is about a completely unprepared young man is willing to take on the responsibility of provideing and caring for an orphaned relative that those who would be better suited are reticent and reluctant.

In "Usagi Dropu (Bunny Drop)" the male protagonist, Daikichi, is already financially self-sufficient and the story centers around the raising of a Six-Year-Old.  In contrast, "Papa no lu Koto o Kikinasai! (Listen to Daddy / Listen to Me Girls, I'm Your Father!)" features a College Freshman, Yuuto, struggling to provide for three young nieces (ages 3, 10, & 14) both emotionally and financially.

If you are a parent, you will likely enjoy watching both of these.

Usagi is beautifully written, drawn, and scored. The other is more intense at times and really tugs at one's emotions.  Both have their strong points. 

Aishiteruze Baby

From skipping class to cheesy lines, he'll do anything it takes to reel the ladies in, though he never seems to find the right person. But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...

If you enjoy PapaKiki or Aishiteru I believe you may enjoy the other. Both include young men taking in young female family members and watching over them; while trying to juggle thier own lives- IE. High School/College & Jobs and thier love lives. There are cute comedy and drama elements in both due to the main characters learning how to raise kids.

zetazach zetazach says...

Both animes are about a young man taking care of a child/ children. In Papakiki, the protagonist takes in the girls and raises them alone with no support, while in Aishiteruze Baby, the protagonist is still in high school and raises the child with the support of his family,

GrnEydDvl GrnEydDvl says...

In both of these shows, a very unprepared teeager suddenly finds himself the caretaker of young children and is forced to rise to the challenge, which he does remarkably well.  In both cases, the caretaker and the children grow and learn from each other, as the odd families that they have created develop and blossom into families of love, tenderness, and mutual understanding.  Both shows are comedic, lighthearted, and show the overwhelming power of children to change one's outlook on life.  If you liked one show for the warm family bonds, you should enjoy the other.

Danchigai

Danchigai

Danchigai focuses on the life of Haruki Nakano and his four sisters, all of whom live together in the same apartment complex. The only boy of five siblings, Haruki lives with his older sister Mutsuki, difficult younger sister Yayoi, and mischievous twins Uzuki and Satsuki.

Both of these anime center around the young siblings of a close family and their home. They're mostly slice of life with some comedy springkled throughout, but they also randomly include brief moments of fanservice and minor references to incest (Danchigai is more moe/tame by comparison, however). If you enjoyed one, there's little doubt you wouldn't like the other.

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both of these shows focus on family life (one in a bit more normal setting than the other) and sibling love.

Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! is a bit more serious and focuses on other things than just comedy (which is basically the only thing that Danchigai did). 

Hinamiuandsora Hinamiuandsora says...

It's a really good anime it's like listen to your father because it has a school setting in some of it and then mostly a normal Japanese home and stuff like that.btwv I need 100 words so I'm gonna say...YAY EXTRAVAGANZA PARTY FOR THE BEST ANIM3RRRRREEERREEEEEEERRFGG

In both of these shows, a young and seemingly immature young man becomes the guardian of his sister's child/children after his sister's death.  In each show, the guardian rises to the challenge of being a parent, while the children grow up quickly, bringing joy, love, and a sense of responsibility to the unusual, but warm, home and family that they create together.  Both shows are comedic, lighthearted, fun, and full of heartwarming family love.  If you liked one, you are sure to like the other.

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

Both shows are about a brother who takes in his late sisters child or children. Neither brothers are exactly the most dependable but they make things work. Shounen Maid is more realistic in character reactions and portrayals and focuses on the child who is the main character. The child in Shounen Maid goes from being poor to living with his rich uncle. Papa focuses on the brother and the three children and the children go from a middle class family to being poor so it's kind of backwards. I would say Shounen Maid is probably the better of the two, but if you liked one you might like the other.

I think you'd like both shows, because they're both about family members caring for each other. In "Binbou Shimai Monogatari" there are just 2 sisters whose parents are gone where as in "Papa no lu Koto o Kikinasai!" there are 3 sisters and the uncle. But both animes feel similar, because one tends to sympathise with them and live with them through their every day life and the hardships they have to go through.

If you tend to have a strong protective instinct, both shows will grab you by this very special spot in your personality and drag you into a rollercoaster ride of emotions for sure.

While plot is not as directly comparable as these other recommendations, they have are similar in a broader sense. Such as, they both include an adult acting as a role model, a similar warm tone, and both have a good share of comedy.So if you want something similar, while not a different re-telling of the same story, you should enjoy this.

They both involve a young man all of a sudden becoming a foster father to a cute little girl. In the case for Listen to Me Girls, I'm Your Father (PapaKiki), the young man becomes a father to THREE young girls, with the youngest being his niece and the oldest having a secret crush on him. Both titles show the growing pains and loving bonds the young fathers develop while raising their kids.
