And further rattling the unexpected skeleton in the closet? The ungainly, unglamorous Daikichi's impulsive decision to take in little Rin! But as the impromptu dad and his charge learn to adapt to bot ...more

I don't know what it is about this series, but it actually makes me, someone who has zero desire whatsoever, kind of want to have kids. I'm certainly not going to! And if I ever did, I would never have any of my own children. I outright refuse. I'd rather adopt, and I'd rather adopt an older child. So this series just sort of solidifies my belief in the importance of that and kinda makes me want to do it.... kinda. Ha!

I actually was a little bit sad when (view spoiler)

While this series seems like it should be boring and/or goofy, it's... not. Daikichi is especially appealing for some unspecific reason, and Rin never comes across as one of those unbelievable, too-cute kid characters.

Also, a fascinating look into Japanese workplace culture.

Che sorpresa continua ad essere questo manga.

Non è solo la storia di due persone sole - una bambina e un trentenne - che si trovano e formano una famiglia ma è anche un ritratto della società giapponese. Una sorta di manuale d'uso su cosa bisogna fare per sopravvivere nel Paese del Sol Levante.

Daikichi deve cambiare lavoro e ciò gli porta un sacco di problemi con i suoi vecchi colleghi di reparto. Allo stesso tempo deve organizzare la sua vita intorno ai bisogni di Rin. Deve scoprire come iscriv

Review after completion of series, volume notes to follow:

1) Rin is slowly developing as a character and it's fun to see it.
2) Slow pace is actually growing on me as this is a slice of life manga and the point is...well looking at life.
3) The stuff about the mother is a bit annoying but I imagine that I'm reacting the same way the author has intended.
4) Art continues to be simple and light but conveys a lot of emotion through good character design
5) Last name section highlights difference in

This volume flows really well from #1. Rin continues to come out of her shell, growing more confident and happier. She's absolutely adorable, especially as she begins to form a relationship with the same family members who refused to take her in at the funeral.

Daikichi is the one who really shines in this volume, though. He's becoming more and more comfortable with Rin, and has begun to really consider her a part of his life. However, in this volume, he also realizes that her mother needs to be

I love this series. It's about family. And generations. And looking back over your life to understand the impact of your own actions on others.

The relationship that Daikichi has developed with young Rin is so sweet - full of respect and tenderness and genuine love. And the more he matures as Rin's guardian, the more he sees his own family/parents in a new light (e.g., the struggles they had, the sacrifices they made). In volume 2, I love how Daikichi has found a sort of comrade in arms with the

The second chapter of this Manga features our reluctant father having to deal with his daughter's first days at school, including the registration. There is also a bit of a mystery as he dives into Rin's mother and her identity. Why did she give her up? This book kept me drawn in, and I've officially taken out the entire series from the library, so expect a lot more of these books!

Very cute for Manga tackling of the problems of parenthood. There is suspense about the child's mother, but most of it is just about learning to be a parent and how it changes your interactions with the rest of the world. I especially identify with this because my son is going through the preschool to elementary school transition that the child is going through in this book.

Oh, the many ups and weird turns in this volume! Rin's past us sorta revealed! Grandpa isn't the father, or at least it wasn't stated. And Rin's mother! So young! And so immature. And Rin starts grade school and Daikichi does her hair. I love this volume simply for the bounding experiences and really wish I had the entire series!

I love Daikichi and Rin more and more with every page turn. Rin is just so cute and even though she can be painfully shy, with Daikichi is isn't afraid to speak up and let him know what she thinks. It's obvious that she loved Daikichi and he in turn loves her.

Daikichi is working so hard to do his best and leaving behind all the 'fun adult stuff' he used to do, making him feel like an old man. But slowly (albeit, painfully slowly) he seems to be cultivating something with Kouki's mom!

*4 stars*

Just as lovely and enjoyable as the first but had much greater development of characters and semblance of plot. These are so addicting and cute that I'm probably going to be flying through this series in no time.
Sep 23, 2010 Will rated it it was amazing
This book had me on the edge of tears. It's not a complicated book -- in some ways it's very simple. The strength of the book comes from its simplicity. Daikichi is charmingly awkward and self conscious about his role as a parent, and the book shows a world you typically don't see in fiction.

Bunny Drop is explicit about how much sacrifice and missed opportunities can come from raising a child. It also frames the world in terms of Daikichi's thoughts and feelings about his new charge, and even th

Meh...I was really disappointed with the revel of Rin's birth mother. The rest of the books works well, but this part was just a big let down so I don't think I'm going to continue reading the series

I keep being amazed at how... not necessarily "raw" this manga series is, but definitely something like it... it touches on a lot of stuff, and Daikichi navigates the situation so well and is always very sensitive to Rin's needs and feelings, and that's really wonderful to see. I really love seeing Rin coming out of her shell and Daikichi growing into his new role as her guardian.

Continuing the simple yet wonderful story of 30-yr-old Daikichi who decides to take in his deceased grandfather's 6-yr-old daughter, Rin.
I really enjoy the realism of the story. Daikichi isn't perfect but he isn't stupid either. He knows it will be a huge change but he does his best. The everyday trials he goes through such as finding a daycare center and changing his job so he can spend more time at home for Rin is done so matter-of-factly you almost miss the heartwarming warmth. Almost. In v.

My Review of Bunny Drop #1

Rin and Daikichi's story continues as they prepare for Rin to enter elementary school, she meets a new friend, and Daikichi continues to learn how to care for a small human person. The mystery of Rin's mother is also solved but the encounter is less then satisfactory.

The drawing and the overall aspects of the story remain the same and I discuss them more in depth in the review above.

The second volume of this story is even stronger, because the interaction between guardian Daikichi and six-year-old Rin has more time to shine. While Daikichi may be too good to be true in the real world - with his steadfast determination to be the parent for Rin and giving up his old career, which set standards for his department - it is believably complex in the interaction between him, Rin, his parents and especially the finally discovered mother.

I love the way the mangaka makes Rin a real
