When the topic of who will care for her comes up, the family shirks all responsibility of raising this “shameful” child. In an emotional outburst, Daikichi declares his intention to take Rin into his home.

- Utterly charming and heartwarming from start to finish, “Bunny Drop” is one of the best animated slice-of-life shows to come out Japan in years. Thanks in large part to its realistic setting and plausible storylines, Daikichi’s transformation from corporate salary man to single parent quickly becomes an engrossing journey filled with quiet humor and poignant moments of self-discovery. Far from being a chore or a burden, Rin quickly becomes a wondrous opportunity for Daikichi to become a part of a world where unexpected moments of joy and laughter await him at every turn
The “Premium Edition” release of “Bunny Drop”” is a Blu-ray/DVD combo set that comes in an illustrated album-size slipcase along with a twenty-eight page hardback art book/episode guide. Aside from the usual array of character bios and episode synopses, the guidebook also boasts a large assortment of character designs, set pieces and interviews with the production staff.
While some may find “Bunny Drop’s” sugar-coated version of parenting a bit frustrating at times, that’s not the point of the series. “Bunny Drop” intentionally downplays its drama so viewers can see that, for many parents, raising a child is a ticket to a life filled with secret treasures and beautiful memories that only those blessed with children ever see. If you haven’t had the chance to experience this wonderful series yet, then this premium edition release from NIS America is definitely the way to go.
