Like a plot out of a soap opera, bachelor Daikichi Kawachi’s boringly normal life got a touch of the abnormal when he learned that his late granddad left behind a love child. And further rattling the unexpected skeleton in the closet? The ungainly, unglamorous Daikichi’s impulsive decision to take in little Rin! But as the impromptu dad and his charge learn to adapt to both one another and their very new living situation, Daikichi is plagued by thoughts of Rin’s mother. Who is she? Why has she been quiet all this time? Hot on the trail after discovering a modem at the old man’s computer-less abode, Daikichi plays detective in search for answers. But elementary school enrollment, extracurricular activities, and other parental obligations wait for no man, so when the day of confrontation with the mysterious Masato arrives, will Daikichi be prepared?!
3 out of 5 stars
This volume of Bunny Drop follows Rin and Daikichi. Daikichi is trying to find out who Rin’s biological mother is, so he enlists the help of his own mother. Rin is about to go into first grade, so she needs to start acting like a “big girl.” Daikichi doesn’t know how he could live his life without Rin.
This volume was really cute. There were two scenes that made my heart melt because of the cuteness. First, when Rin and Daikichi are shopping for a desk and a backpack. It felt so real because that’s how a kid would act if they had to go shopping for something like that. She was so excited about having everything, and ended up wearing her backpack when she got home that night. It was so cute because I remember doing stuff like that. I remember wearing new clothes at home because I was so excited, or writing in a new notebook I just got.
The second part was when Daikichi said that it’s not bad to want to be held when you’re in first grade. You can always be held, sometimes adults even need to be held sometimes. So Rin remembers the time that he was crying because she told him she didn’t want him to adopt her, and she said sorry and that next time she would hold him if he needed her to.
It was so fricking cute.
At first after finishing volume 1 I didn’t know if I wanted to continue on, but now I definitely want to! These mangas are so cute, and I can’t wait to read more of them :)
