From Yen Press:

Going home for his grandfather's funeral, thirty-year-old bachelor Daikichi is floored to discover that the old man had an illegitimate child with a younger lover! The rest of his family is equally shocked and embarrassed by this surprise development, and not one of them wants anything to do with the silent little girl, Rin. In a fit of angry spontaneity, Daikichi decides to take her in himself! But will living with this overgrown teenager of a man help Rin come out of her shell? And hang on, won't this turn of events spell doom for Daikichi's love life?!

Note: Was adapted into a live-action movie in 2011.

I am a person who is thoroughly sick of high-school-kid love affairs. Usagi Drop gave no indication of being such a story, and I expected it to be a more mature, less funny version of one of my favourite manga; Yotsubato!. This quite piqued my interest, and I read the first 2 volumes with the utmost enthusiasm. Admittedly, it was stupid of me to not check the mangaka's favoured genres (which, on later inspection, turned out to be slice-of-life + romance) - something I usually do. But after reading a couple of comments on the series and noticing the 'time skip' category tag, I went ahead to the 5th volume - and was sorely disappointed to find my worst fears confirmed.

It would have been perfectly fine, of course, if the story had gone on to portray Daikichi's attempts to communicate with, and understand, his rapidly maturing adoptive daughter as she desires his company less and less. I would happily have accepted an intelligent take on learning to let go of your children and how he copes with Rin's quest to discover more about her real parents. Maybe those topics are brought up later on, but the fifth volume bored me too much. I am not fond enough of Rin to continue following her through the trials of her late teen years and her entanglements with her future boyfriend(?)

Therefore, despite having a very promising start, this title is destined to languish in my unfinished list.

The first part of the series is completely different from the later part. It starts out as a man raising an adopted little girl, and the man is interesting. But then there's a time-skip in chapter 25 and you no longer see hardly anything about that man--instead the story starts following the daughter once she's 17, as she has love triangles with characters I have no interest in. I never cared for that boy, and I was very sad that you no longer see hardly anything about her father.

Basically the beginning is fine to read, but the timeskip was a disjointed transition, and I can't recommend reading the story past the timeskip. In other words, understand that the "real" ending to this story is chapter 24 and what follows is a totally different story.

This manga is one of the mangas that started off really well then kinda run out of steam later on. It was one of my favorite one. But then the story takes a rather sharp turn and the nice feeling in the story is mostly gone. Now it's like a weird shoujo that is just average. Maybe the publisher forced the author to change to try to improve rating or something else? In any case it was a pity that it couldn't just continue like it was before.

Recommend the first 2 volumes only.

and I'm loving it! For a family/slice-of-life manga, I think it's going at a great pace. Through simplistic and clean art, we are immersed in the budding relationship between an "overgrown teen" of a man and his shy, young "aunt" of a child. The manga has some funny moments and leaves you feeling content. Recommended for those who enjoy a peaceful read.

A very profound manga! Though the characters are simple, the whole story contains very deep insight into what real life is about. Forget about stupid dramas for stupid people who may brag about themselves "living life to the fullest", this is a serious story about serious people who seriously try to get through serious lives with serious love and seriously "live life to the fullest."

This thing is full of great themes (self discovery, responsibility, commitment, family, friendship and more), and has a believable setting and characters that make reading it feel ... necessary. Like I just *have* to know what's going to happen, both because I'm interested and feel for the characters, and because it seems like the lessons learned as regular, everyday life goes on in the story are actually applicable to real life, and worth reading about. This is a strong title inevery aspect, and I'm thoroughly enjoying reading it.

Start reading this manga while I was on another mangas like One piece, The breaker and others fight stuff, but when I take a glimps of this one, I just coulnd´t stop reading it, it´s a really heart touching history... and Daikichi is such a cool guy.

It's not my first time seeing a father daughter manga, Yotsubato, Hotman, and My Girl just to name a few. This being josei, well nothing coming to mind means I haven't read a josei that really made an impact, I just had to put it on my on hold list.

Surprisingly, despite all the cliche, I'm hooked, lined, and sinkered after the first chapter. If you like the series I mentioned above, you definitely must give it a try.

Some say that it's slow paced, I think it's well paced. A year was told in four volumes. Well, it doesn't really matter because there wasn't a boring moment.

One thing I really like about the art is how Rin's growth was depicted. It's almost like she grows with every chapter.

Usag Drop is indeed very slow paced, but it's also very earnest and entertaining. I usually don't read slice of life series', but I made an exception for this one as a result of bordem and curiosity...and I couldn't be happier that I did. I've already read the latest Japanese volume, which is just as good as the mini-Rin portion thus far. I can't wait to read it in English as well.

I really like this series. The first parent to child relationship manga I started reading was Otaku no Musume-san, which I really enjoyed. When I came across this I loved it even more, I like how Daikichi really cares for Rin as if she were his own daughter. The more I read, the more I enjoy it.

Edit- The ending destroyed this manga... enough said.
