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 man help Rin come out of her shell? And hang on, won't this turn of events spell doom for Daikichi's love life?!

When I started watching episode 1, I didn't really dig the animation style, so I thought that I wouldn't like it. But I was so wrong. Its hard to describe why I love this show so much, but I'm definitely watching it to the end. Rin and Daikichi are just so lovable. Everyone should at least watch the first episode of this.

Daikichi is waaaaaay too mature and understanding. "this overgrown teenager of man" pfffft. I call bullshit, if they start to turn him into that.

...but the girl's cute, and the animation is cool. (read: different, for me)

I'll keep watching.

This is a similar premise as that one show about the teenage boy taking care of a 5 year old kid...but I like this one SOOO much better so far.

For many things, i think Rin is really cute and Dai is a good man.

Yeah, I'm sold. They could make this show about nothing and just ride the characters (after only four episodes, I'm _that_ emotionally invested) oh wait, is it about nothing? No, so much is happening! Or is it? Wait...

Aishiteruze Baby had too much teenage angst for me. I expect less from this one.

I thought about Aishiteruze Baby when I saw that this show would be airing. Baby's premise is to convey a teenager to take more responsibility in his world. Usagi's premise is to convey the modern single workaholic adult to settle down. That is what I see.

But that stuff aside, this anime is cute. In my opinion, the best new anime this season.

Just curious, I don't know enough to take a stance, but I've never been in a situation related to the events of this show in any way shape or form.

but.... (this is a discussion thread, right?)

For those of you with strong feelings/opinions what do you all think of Rin's mom?

I think she's a douche, but I hear it's pretty common in Japan for a parent to split and give up all parental rights, but there's usually another parent that takes the kid.
