New Anime Series: Usagi Drop

First Episode Review for: Usagi Drop

Summary : A 30 year old man’s grandfather dies (aged 79) leaving behind a ~7 year old girl and the family (and more specifically the lead male) try to decide what to do with her

Animation : Subdued animation with a major attempt to go for realism, good attention to detail and pleasant on the eyes

Plot Potential: Amazing potential, and already showing its colours

Characters: good original characters, a lot of growth potential, and good bit in this first episode was the contrast between the lead little girl and the bratish spoilt child of one of the other family members, really put you on the little girl’s side.

Music: Subdued opening tune, pleasant chirpy closing theme

Reminds me of: Nothing, I cannot remember an anime that deals with such a difficult social issue (particularly tricky in Japan) without merely using it as a justification of a persons actions later in the series e.g., “he sought revenge for being abandoned”,

Overall: It may be much more serious than my normal stuff, but it was fascinating, I’m going to watch this series with great interest.
