Was curious as to what /a/'s opinion on this anime was.
And I'm talkin the anime, not the manga. That shit is weird
Personally really liked it. Animation was fucking sweet.
One of my favorites.
It's just so god damn sweet.
Manga never existed.
One of my personal favorite anime of all time.
One of the only anime I've seen that has an accurate portrayal of actual children and actual adults.
Heartwarming and inspiring.
Rin best daughteru.
People are STILL upset over the manga?
The manga ending was logical and sweet. Fuck you if you didn't like it. Rin was happy with it, and so should you.
Just found out that it was a thing. Kinda shocking after the way the anime went I guess
>The manga ending was logical and sweet
Stop rustling my jimmies.
What happened in the manga?
Thoroughly enjoyed it and the whole adoptive parent-child bonding themes it had going on as well the mostly endearing atmosphere (that whore of a mother can go die though)
That manga was disturbing and disgusting.
You can like it if you want, but to most people having watched the anime, it will be received as inappropriate.
Nothing about that was logical. Who the fuck ever does that?
See that little girl and that old guy? Well he takes care of her until she's 18, then suddenly she falls in love with him and they get married.
Rin gets the D.
Not even kidding.
When Rin grows up, Daikichi ends up falling in love with her.
backwards. She falls in love with him.
It was great. I.G needs to get this team to make another anime. They have real talent.
post more rin pls
I hate slice of life anime.
I loved Usagi Drop.
>That manga was disturbing and disgusting.
Not to mention raising little girl to be a bride is ancient Japanese tradition.
pls keep it that way ty
It pretty much fucking ruined it. I love you dad. Okay, let's get married.
oh my! an /a/ thread about recent years series that is ACTUALLY FKING MEANINGFUL?
WHERE AM I, WHAT SORCERY IS THIS
too bad the manga is so fucking bad.
where anime has ended is just perfect as it is.
As if that changes anything. It's still fucking messed up.
It's like the anime made no attempt to have an actual ending, it just stopped at an arbitrary place.
I'd rather have seen the dadfuck end than that.
This thread isn't meaningful, it's just people complaining about the manga ending.
It ends where Daikichi realizes what it truly means to be a parent. Like, he transcends legal guardian and achieves dad status.
then they fuck
it's not the thread that's meaningful. it's the anime that is...it's heartwarming, one of the best slice of life, family-oriented stories there are
but the manga ending jsut craps all over it. imagina Tomoya shagging Ushio in the clannad and getting off because she looks like Nagisa
But anon, that kind of ending was really unnecessary.
I can't blame the guy, she was pretty sexy.
It's not about being a normalfag but expectations. It's like ordering an ice cream but getting a cake instead. Sure, both are delicious, but you went to to that fucking place because you wanted an ice cream. Where is my fucking ice cream.
It's more like ice cream with a little cake at the bottom.
Why did he even wait that long?
I loved the anime. I loved the manga even more. 2nd favourite manga behind Koi Kaze.
yeah, that made kind of sense
but Usagi drop, I mean, the manga just never existed, never.
Post more Rin.
Please go back to wherever you came from.
Get outta here
I remember one scene where the mother slung her bag over her shoulder and the animation went full frame-rate.
just because you like pedo daughter-papa incest crap, doesn't mean others has to be fked up like you.
made sense to me. Rin never considered Daikichi to be a father figure, and Daikichi stopped thinking of Rin as a daughter when she refused to take his last name and be adopted by him. From that point forward Daikichi started treating her more like a much younger sister (which if you've watched any anime is totally a legit life partner).
Greatest love story ever told.
If they had given the manga at least 1-2 more volumes to further develop Rin's character during the second "time skip" and remove the "lol not related" asspull the ending would probably have been much more acceptable to me.
It wasn't the worst result, but the execution was too rushed and messy.
That being said, the anime is heartwarming as fuck. I just rewatched it about 2 days ago for the first time since I watched it while it aired and, good god. Rin is too fucking cute and Daikichi's development especially at the final chapter just makes it all the more cozy.
You type like a fucking retard and act like you are on gaia.
And like all incest stories, they are not blood related.
At least half of the manga was dedicated to establishing the point that Rin did not see Daikichi as her father. He was just her primary caregiver.
Y'all niggas is hypocritical. If it was an oniichan raising his little sister and then falling in love these threads would regularly hit the bump limit with people crying "greatest love story ever told".
Why are the nips so bad at acting?
>not liking the manga
>thinking that raising your daughter to be your wife is weird
get a load of this normalfag scum
>Yfw during that "adjustment period" where Daikichi forced Rin to act normal and try to find a boyfriend otherwise he wouldn't even consider being with her she probably spent that time accidentally walking around the house naked and shit.
>you are now imagining those two having sex
>The manga ending was logical and sweet.
looks like definition for normalfag has changed
since when having a morality system is connected to being a normalfag, you normalfag?
Fun piece of trivia. Johnny Appleseed actually tried to raise a girl to be his wife and it backfired appallingly.
If you're not a pedophile then you need to fuck off to gaia, normalfaggot.
Anime: Great, intelligently heartwarming, 9.5/10
Manga: Same until second arc, then taboo-flirting romance. Still good, 9/10 since the romance was well-executed but inferior to the parent/child relationship.
Trufax. These should be your opinions.
>Implying this thread is meaningful.
your pic is very related to you, though.
your gaianess is showing, pls go back there, pumpkin.
That's looking at it the wrong way. It was fine for what it was, but it was simply inferior to the initial child-rearing angle.
4chan got pretty normal.
because they are emotionless like yuki or noisy and annoying like haruhi, there's not middle point
Season 2 when?
>loli is for pedos
>incest is wrong
if you respond yes to one or more, you are a normalfag and you need to go back to facebook.
now go back to facebook or scumblr, normalfag
Mah Nigga! I don't meet many people who actually like Koi Kaze.
Because he was murrican, murricans can't into incest.
and most of them liked my little sister can't be this cute, you can find such hypocrites only here.
The manga was shit because in they second arc they went in the opposite direction and instead of heartwarming bonding we got teen drama that no one cared about and had daikichi fuck rin. The worst possible ending, ever. Seriously, if you were taking care of a little girl like that for ~10 years there is no way you could get your dick up for her, even if it is rin. Either rin should have fucked kouki or daikichi should have fucked his mom and the 2 kids become good friends and siblings. But no, we got the "lol jk you arent related" shit which gave the go ahead for the bullshit ending.
Yes. Because ending up with her non-blood related care giver that has proven to be loyal and faithful is somehow worse than ending up with a guy that is 150% guaranteed to bang whores on the side and lie out of his ass just because there is no social taboo on that kind of relationship.
Kouki was a little shit head right from the start.
As long as it follows the manga I'd be fine with that happening
You never learn, do you?
>wanting to spoil >>100313445
>has no idea of proper story writing
>says "normalfag logic"
it's not about the ending being weird, fuck normalfags.
it's about the fact that the DaixRin is a bad ending since it's an logic error to the personalities of characters.
She's gonna bang somebody, she isn't a nun. What spoiling is occurring?
Fucking dudes that are way too old for them must run in the family.
>says "has no idea of proper story writing"
>Says the ending was bad because he thought it was icky
There was no logic error. Rin fell in love with Daikichi because after Kouki repeatedly let her down she started to think about how Daikichi had always been dependable and it was stated before the fucking time skip that she just wanted him to be Daikichi because her dad was Souichi. It made perfect sense. I stand firm that the only people that don't like the ending are the people that didn't actually read part two and just developed their opinions from hearsay.
That's exactly why manga never existed, Rin never grew up and Anime ends how it ends, idiot.
Hey, OP here. The reason I don't like it is simply because I prefer the father daughter relationship. I don't necessarily look down on the romance, the father daughter thing is just much better.
Daikichi thought of Rin as a daughter throughout nearly the entire story. She may not have thought of him as her father, but he did fall into that role.
He was against seeing Rin as anything other than a daughter, and he was pushed and dragged to the point where he was forced to not see her that way anymore.
It's okay OP. I can see why people wouldn't like the ending. My indignation is directed at the people say the ending didn't make sense or that it came out of nowhere because they just heard it ended that way on /a/ and didn't bother to actually read all the shit that led up to it.
Non /a/ non /u/ fag here, OP.
Thanks for the tip. I'll add it to the collection.
As far as the father daughter thing goes, I'd marry your daughter and treat her well.
Not like the other /a/ holes here.
it didn't make sense on Daikichi part, who was to good of a guy to even lay finger on a girl, who he thought of as a daughter.
Daikichi was the real normalfag here. So...you guys are gonna admit that incest is for normalfags now?
I can't argue that he wasn't basically strong armed into it by both Rin and Kouki but people often forget that Daikichi gave Rin conditions if it was going to happen and between them ending up together and Rin telling Daikichi how she felt there was like a 2 year time skip where Daikichi was trying to both adjust to the idea and persuade Rin to be normal.
It doesn't make sense on Daikichi part, who was developed as too much of a good guy to even lay a finger on the g irl who he thought of as a daughter. The ending was just too unpredictable and had no basis upon the Rin's childhood arc.
Daikichi was the real normalfag here. Are you gonna admit that incest is for normalfags now?
But he's a degenerate jew, what are you trying to prove?
I wonder why the anime adaptation was changed from the original manga
Was it because of the casuals?
Prolly. No idea why,
Women loved the ending.
I assume you are talking about the anime ending.
It's weird. I've noticed that anime often tones down the original content of the manga. I guess they have to make it marketable...
No no, the manga ending was really popular with women.
That's because japanese are retarded inbreed.
That makes me wonder, did Oreimo catch any flak for incest in Japan?
they aren't even blood relatives
The anime wasn't changed, it just ended before the time skip. It actually followed the manga very closely
You and I must have been watching different anime, because what I saw was Daikichi consistently being troubled by what his relationship to this little girl was. He never considered himself her father or father role really, but you are correct that he kind of fell into the role. Then he asked if Rin wanted to be adopted by him and she flat out told him no. The dynamic of their relationship shifted at that moment to being more like an older brother raising a much younger sister relationship than father daughter. That last part didn't get across very well because the time skip happened shortly after that, but that is the direction they were heading.
what about creepy killers like Asakura, gentle and polite like Mikuru/Koizumi, cheerful and full of energy like Tsuruya and boring and passive like Kyon?
anime are for weirdos in japan, don't think the media is surprised by anything
Well yeah, of course it would be. It was written by a woman.
And you know, fathercest is just wimminz imoutocest.
Sorry, I do not really follow anything outside of my basement walls in terms of culture so I do not really have a clue how popular anime is in Japan. So it really is just a subculture there too?
>So it really is just a subculture there too?
Yes. It's for children and disgusting otaku. The only mainstream anime are things like the Miyazaki movies which appeal to everyone, or shit like doraemon which people watch out of nostalgia.
>The dynamic of their relationship shifted at that moment to being more like an older brother raising a much younger sister relationship than father daughter.
>that is the direction they were heading.
I think Daikichi disagrees with you.
>Not to mention raising little girl to be a bride is ancient Japanese tradition.
One's own bride? highly illegal here. Hope it is there too, what the fuck.
Daikichi didn't even try to make her fall for him (he actually tried to make her find someone else, to no avail), the reason she decided she wanted to marry him was because Kouki's constant fucking up made her want someone reliable.
it changes everything. she never ever saw him as her dad.
daikichi is daikichi
It's real good. Rin a cutie
Get the fuck out. The manga ended the right way.
Daikichi never really was much of a "father" though - not in the practical sense, but in the way Rin saw him. This was even the case when she was a child. She didn't take his name and didn't want to refer to him as father. To her, Daikichi was always Daikichi. Daikichi's Grandfather was a father figure to her.
Incest is about breaking a taboo, not about blood, retard.
I'm mad, mad about people wanting Daikichi to fuck Rin, mad at people who like the manga ending, mad at people who sexualize Rin.
Fuck you all.
I'm not arguing that - it's perfectly understandable on Rin's side. On Daikichi's side, however, it's much harder to fathom that he'd go along with something like this after raising her as a daughter (from his point of view) for 10 years. Granted, he gave himself some time to make the decision, and through to the end he said he still felt about her as a daughter, partly. In the end, it felt more like he was basically dragged down by Rin, rather than actually corresponding her feelings.
Had it been less rushed and with some more character development, the ending wouldn't have felt so weird.
To be fair: the life they had together already resembled that of an elderly couple that had been married for decades.
And when he met Rin, she already was six years old, so there wasn't that much time he spent with her as an actual child.
It was a bit odd that he went along with this, but technically, that's what he always did.
Rin from the manga is already grown up. Don't confuse her with Rin when she was a child. Most people who are mad about the manga probably haven't even read it.
This. People are always talking about how this anime shows a beautiful father daughter relationship, but it really doesn't. She makes a point of not being his daughter despite all he's done to take care of her. And of course she still appreciates all that he's done for her, so really, her falling in love with him makes perfect sense. In her mind she was never his daughter and even in his own mind he had to have recognized that she didn't see him that way. He thinks of her as a little girl who needs a loving home, not as his daughter. And there's no reason to be disgusted and act like he's some sick pervert, because it's not like he ever does anything to her when she's a child, and it takes a fair amount of convincing on Rin's part before he's willing to accept their feelings for each other.
I'm not big on slice of life as a whole but the Iyashikei subset is definitely enjoyable. Usagi Drop is no exception. Also did not bother with the manga as the anime felt like an appropriate ending. Could not have asked for more out of the series.
I know that, I'm still mad.
Knowing that that piece of shit MC fucks her at the end ruined everything for me.
Can' t watch it.
He doesn't fuck her in the anime so it's all good.
He doesn't fuck her at all.
He makes love to her in the missionary position for the sole purpose of procreation, probably with the lights off.
Given Rin's fun-loving personality, I doubt she'd be ok with just that.
I don't think she'd have much of a choice.
Daikichi probably killed himself after they did it once anyway.
I watched this for the maturely portrayed and heartwarming parent-child relationship. Incest end was a misplaced outlet for the author's fetish fantasy. How would you feel if Yotsuba suddenly wanted Koiwai's dick?
I watched this a few weeks ago and I was wondering where I was supposed to cry?
I'm constantly hearing you weebs crying about this anime, but the only part I was remotely close to crying was when she had to put the flower on her dad's coffin
She calls him daddy all the time. That wouldn't make sense. Rin refuses to take his last name and makes a point of not calling him dad.
Nobody cried you maroon. It was heartwarming not sad.
>Rin refuses to take his last name and makes a point of not calling him dad.
That doesn't negate that their relationship feels like father and daughter first and foremost. If you knew nothing about the second half of the manga, would that tidbit by itself seriously make you thing "she wants to fuck"?
You know, she could always have decided to be adopted by Daikichi as easily as she decided to fuck him, after realizing she wasn't really Souichi's daughter. I mean, back then she said Daikichi was just Daikichi, because her father was Grandpa, right? Well that doesn't apply anymore!
But, that would be too boring, wouldn't it? Better use that asspull to have a half-assed romantic ending.
That's a dumb question. She doesn't want to be with him as a child, but I would still assert that she very clearly doesn't want to be his daughter. It's not a "little tidbit" is a major plot point in one of the episodes.
This thread needs more Rin gifs.
Plain and simple, they're not related. It's not about being boring, it's about the fact that it makes perfect sense for a girl who's been taken care of by a guy she loves (and spent a good deal of time taking care of him as well) to want to be with him romantically. Even though neither of them realizes it in the early stages, they have always had the sort of relationship most people dream about having with their significant other. They bring out the best in each other and both grow together. She's never thought of him as her father, just as a caretaker. She wouldn't want to be adopted by him because at that point she's developed feelings for her caretaker.
Thank ya kindly.
looks like they're procreating
Do you feel somewhat special about that?
God damn. Why was Kouki so shit at everything?
last one i have
She's too small, unless he's hung like a horse.
The manga ending was objectively good, and if you disagree, you're not allowed to post here.
made me lel
Oh my, look how shitty your opinions are.
She's a freaking 16-year old, for god's sake. This is what I hated the most and I still hate it for most "happy endings" in anime. People that are so fucking young yet take the decisions of a lifetime like it's the only thing that's ever gonna happen to them. I don't care if Rin is more mature or level-headed or whatever, she's a fucking minor. I can accept that shit in other anime and manga, but Usagi Drop was something different.
I also hated that the circle of friends and such never really opened for Rin because of the whole "wait 2 years" bullshit and the time skip.
In any case, like I said before, I understand how things came to happen on Rin's side, but Daikichi should really have known better.
I'm not entirely against the ending (I actually love the idea of them together) but it was handled like utter shit.
>People that are so fucking young yet take the decisions of a lifetime
I'm actually really jealous of those people IRL. I've always been too cautious about things like that and I've missed a couple of great opportunities because I was too scared to dive in head first and not worry about the what-ifs.
And like I said before it's not as if Daikichi just jumped up and said "right on, let's bone!" He's not some depraved pervert. He actively tried to help her find someone other than him to love and needed quite a bit of convincing from Rin before he was willing to accept his feelings for her.
One thing that I'm not eally sure about Koi Kaze: at the end, when they show the father preparing the removal of the sakura trees, does that simbolize that their love wasn't accepted by the father and he destroyed/prevented it?
That fucking ost
Also I really like Rin's voice.
I cried after every episode because I'll never get a daughter as cute, caring and understanding as Rin.
It really depends on the person and the kind of decision. I'm a worrywart myself so I couldn't bring myself to take them either.
Anyway, what you said is obviously implied in the manga but like I said it's handled badly and in a rushed manner. They should've left an extra volume for the 2-year period and add some real character development before the end, maybe even delaying Rin's (forced) confession. Because let's face it, we barely saw much interaction between Rin and Daikichi in the latter half of the manga. It would've been nice to devote more time to that rather than all the high-school drama shit.
I heard they had a suicide pact or something in the manga.
don't lie, you're crying because you're not able to impregnate your daughter
The OST is great. The piano version of Sweet Drops is pretty fucking amazing too.
I agree with that. It wasn't an objectively bad ending because of the way the author chose to go with it, but it definitely did feel rushed and could've been done better. I don't know if you've read it but I felt the same exact way about the way KnJ ended. It needed to be fleshed out more and show more of Aoki and Rin's character development instead of just having a random 2 year time skip so suddenly it would be acceptable to end it the way it did. It was still a good ending but could've been done better.
these things are fucking brilliant
I loved both the OP and ED themes, too. Can't link the OP because youtube is a bitch and disabled the audio for it.
Also, did anyone notice how the ending animation changes slightly to reflect the events of each episode? It was a very soothing detail I didn't pay much attention to the first time I watched the anime.
Pic related is from ep. 11's ED sequence.
anime end > manga end
>OP said anime
>everyone else in this thread keeps talking about what happened after the time skip
OP should've known he'd start a debate about the manga when he included "not the manga that shit is weird" in the OP post. Anyone who likes the manga is going to see people shitting on it and come in to tell them they have shit taste.
Ehehe, whoops. Didn't mean to shit on it. After reading why everyone had to say though I think that I don't hate the manga end anymore, I just prefer the anime's end is all.
The OP post wasn't really shitting on it, but some people ITT were. I didn't join until I saw the debate going on because discussion about anime and manga is something I don't get to participate in often enough on /a/.
Honestly I can understand why people won't like the manga, but I think it's fine. When I watch the anime I'm not thinking about how they're going to end up together and shipping Daikichi x Rin. I'm appreciating it as a beautiful story of raising a child. The manga is something else with some more serious romance themes.
