I’m positively in love with the artistic stylings of the new anime, Usagi Drop. While I initially cast off the rather strange artwork as being a byproduct of a lack of skill, I can see that’s not the case. This isn’t one of your moe-blob shows, so don’t expect anything along the lines of K-ON or Baka to Test.
I’ll be the first to say that this sort of development is really far-fetched. What 70 year-old goes off and has a child behind his family’s back? But I digress, it’s a work of fiction and so, my suspension of belief will have to hold for now. Once you look past the odd set-up, you’ll be able to appreciate Usagi Drop for what it is, a touching tale of bonding between the black sheep of the family. (PS. No. 6 is also in this post.)

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY – Wow, there’s a lot of anime coming out this Summer 2011 season and it’s a bit difficult to get everything under control. My blogging schedule in regards to this new season is tentative at the moment. I plan to do them as they come out, but between a boatload of work that needs to get done and the short periods of time between episodes, things may get a little sporadic.

Eeeh, anyways, it had a strong first episode, and I’m not throwing the praise around lightheartedly. There are some shows that I’ve watched (like Ro Kyu Bu) that I will most likely never review this season since they were just plain horrible. So sit tight, kiddos, as this anime is killer.
