Well it would be nice if they conclude the show was popular enough to continue it on.

I really enjoyed it myself. 11 eps is just not enough for this one.

Trust me, if you've read the manga, you wouldn't want them to cover the rest.

If they do a season 2, I hope they just do their own thing or something.

I just read how the manga ends.....and all I kept saying was "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT!". I seriously thought that somebody was trolling me, so I checked it out from multiple sources. I no longer want a second season.

Serious spoiler is serious below, do not read unless you really want to hear a mouthful on the second half of Usagi Drop's manga and ending. >____>

Spoiler :
EDIT: Did not like. :|

didn't fit the story that I wanted to happen, and I'm uncomfortable with how things end.

It takes an openminded individual to appreciate the manga ending.
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

Somewhat disturbing ending aside, I liked the Usagi Drop anime and the first half of the manga for the mood. The second half, from the josei target it had, pretty much turns into a rather generic shoujo manga. It just becomes another thing altogether, imho, it loses the side to it that really made it interesting and enjoyable for me. At least the ending, besides pulling off a cliché solution for the main issue, tries to be original in a way I guess, but it really doesn't stand, it feels like it's done just to troll the reader.
Just give me more of the mellow feelings of the first half and I'm fine.

I would prefer the ending was different too (in the manga).

I wonder why manga and anime need to do these things.

I've watched more than a few shows, that were great right till they had to insert something that was really not necessary. I mean, what demographic are they doing this to satisfy? I want to know, so I can go out and erradicate them.

The 11 eps we got were great because it is a great guy stepping up and doing the right thing and providing for the girl when no one wanted her. It was wonderful slice of life.

If I had a dollar for every time I saw a story insert something that just seemed unnecessary, well that would be a nice sack of cash.

Not that in this case with this show, was it overly bad, it was just not overly realistic. And that was the original charm of this show, it seemed so ordinary and real.

Just finished watching the show, and like most, I wanted to pick up the manga just to continue the story. I mean, it's a great story! But then the wife (who had already read the spoilers on the manga when I started watching the show) told me, "you're not going to like it..."

Now that I finished the anime, I finally let her tell me about the manga... and she was right, I didn't like it.

Hmm seems I need to recant.

Ok the anime was great. Great enough I felt ok read the manga and not leave any unresolved issues. Read all the way from the beginning, and was impressed I might add with how the manga and anime remain the same.

I will say I thought some of the journey looked like filler. And I must admit, I grew to dislike some of the people I meet in the reading of the manga. Sure don't like Kouki's girlfriend at all.

But considering I knew the ending, well I was thinking I knew the end that is. But, not knowing how the ending was arrived at makes a difference actually. Turns out the ending is actually not a bad ending, but, if you just skip to the last chapter and read it thinking that is a good idea, that is a bad idea actually.

This is not (in my opinion) just another case of match ups that make you go wtf?

In the end, the story is rescued for me, and I am glad I read aaaaaall the way through and didn't cheat myself based on comments I was reacting to.

I am glad I read it, and in retrospect, I think this manga could be made a full anime and work just fine. But I would want some of the seems like filler content maybe sped past a bit hehe.

I have promoted this anime/manga to my first place status. Liked it that much eh.
Maybe it's because though, I have experienced something of the impossible relationship in my life, so I can relate.

A romantic will not come away from this manga unhappy as far as I am concerned.
