Okay, let's see. What can i say of this movie?
It is cute all over, it doesn't bore you, it doesn't make you skip any parts, it enters your heart, grows inside and leaves happily.
I am neutral about the music, there was a german song in the beginning, it was quite fun to watch Daikichi's fantasy and the music fitted it but other than that one song i don't really remember read more others, means they don't really stand out.
the story is nice, i love Daikichi and Rin's relationship. they do no cuddling, no "i love you so much daddy" but you just feel the love. It is the success of both the story and the actors.
so if you want to have a change of your cliché someone-dying, someone-fighting-so-hard-for-love movies, take the shot, you won't regret it.

Usagi Drop it's the heartwarming story of the trials and rewards Daikichi, a 30 year old single man, faces when he, against his family's wishes, decides to raise a 6 year old girl named Rin, whois his late grandfather's illegitimate daughter.

I had watched anime last year and when I found out about the movie I couldn't wait. I had fallen in love with the story and how they go about it. read more The movie is not fast paced since the story itself isn't. It is somewhat slow, but the almost two hours went by fairly fast all the same.

The two main actors, Matsuyama Kenichi and Ashida Mana, do such a great job acting that even without obvious caring words, they pull off showing how much their bond and relationship has grown as time passes. I also liked the acting of the rest of the cast.

The music leaves something to be desired, but for me, it doesn't hinder the story at all.

This is the first movie adaptation I've been happy with in a while, so I'll definitely re-watch it sometime.

These dramas follow the journey of a young man who take on the responsibility of raising a toddler on their own. They struggle to find work balance and a proper comprehension of a child's heart and mind. Yet through the ups and downs they persist and grow as loving fathers.

Both films tackle the same thing: the struggle of a single man taking care of a child he barely knows. Usagi Drop is a little bit in the dramatic side while Baby and I is a little bit in the funny side, in my opinion. And the little difference is that the child in Usagi Drop is six years old while in Baby and I, the child is still an infant.

    Accidentally watch it for the second time after a long long time, and recognize that Go Ayano was there with his long hair that looks cool (y)

      When I saw things getting weird in the manga I dropped it XD I know what happened since a friend told me ~ but i'm grateful that I didn't see it happen with my own eyes. Its a shame that one of my favourite manga's went to sh*t in the end. It is a heart warming manga. You should read Love So Life if you like Usagi Drop!

    I completely loved it!
    This was the first time I watched Ashida Mana in anything and the little girl lives to her reputation. She's an amazing actress. She and Matsuyama made the most mesmerizing pair.
    Usagi Drop was such a heartwarming watch. Although I don't usually enjoy these types of dramatic films but this one completely drawn me in.

    Does anyone know where I can watch this w/ sound & English Subtitles? Tried Youtube, but it either had no sound or no subs. Too bad, sounds like an interesting movie :-/
