My anime club kids have been telling me to read this series since they came in, and I figured this was the perfect opportunity to get started on them. So far I give Bunny Drop two thumbs up. Bunny Drop sets its self up for some for a few funny moments with a single guy, stagnant in life, taking in a six year old girl who's technically his aunt. He knows nothing about children or how to balance work and day care, not to mention the issue of who this little girls mother is.
Because this is the first book in the series we watch as Daikichi tries to get Rin settled, he watches other mom's to figure out her clothing size, the stumble through having accidents, at night, in bed, and he's even in the process of switching up his work schedule to so Rin can go to the local day care.
There are or course some slip ups, and Daikichi is learning a few new tricks to help adapt to his new life with Rin, but I really look forward to reading about their other adventures.
