It was too amazing and nostalgic (after watching the anime a couple years ago), so I had to do this little spiel of some of my favorite moments. If you haven’t seen this anime, you need to get on it sometime. It literally has almost no other purpose than to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The little girl’s name is Rin, by the way. The faces she makes are just too adorable. I seriously can’t give this anime anything but a wholehearted recommendation. Anyone can enjoy it. It feels so simple, yet there’s actually more to it than meets the eye.
Here’s a synopsis:
While attending his grandfather’s funeral, thirty-year-old bachelor Daikichi is surprised to discover that his grandfather had an illegitimate child with an unknown mother! The rest of his family, fearing the obligation and embarrassment, want nothing to do with the silent little girl, Rin. Sensing her imminent abandonment and outraged by his complacent family members, Daikichi decides to adopt her himself! ...Yet, he may have underestimated the difficulty of balancing his work, family, and love life with his role as her guardian.
Really, just go ahead and watch the first episode. You watch it, you enjoy it, and you want more. One episode is not enough!
