Storyline

At the funeral of elderly Souchiro Kawachi, his family is shocked to learn he had a six-year-old daughter named Rin. There is talk amongst the family of putting her up for adoption to avoid scandal and talk; disgusted at this behavior, Souchiro's grandson Daikichi decides to take her in himself and raise her as his own child. Thus he begins an arduous, consuming but ultimately satisfying trip through single parenthood, as he and Rin struggle to become a part of each other's lives and bond together. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

An utter delight
17 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This short series is an utter delight; it follows Daikichi, a thirty year old business man who end up adopting a six year old relative called Rin when he goes to his grandfather's funeral. The surprise is that the young girl is in fact his aunt! He hadn't visited for some time and had no idea that his grandfather had had a fling with the cleaner. It soon becomes clear that Daikichi has bitten off more than he can chew as he struggles with his job and trying to be there for Rin. He must make a choice; switch to a lower position with fixed hours or admit he can't raise Rin... he makes the decision to switch positions and things get easier for him although he is still raising her as a single 'parent' and must deal with the various issues in her life. Daikichi and Rin aren't the only two characters of not; there are also Rin's friend Kouki and his mother Yukari; who is single and of a similar age to Daikichi although it looks like they will remain friends rather than form a relationship.

If you want a break from fighting robots, the supernatural, excess fan-service and high school comedies then this may be the anime for you! The animation has a slightly naive style that gives it a delightfully child like quality even though this isn't really aimed at children... while there is nothing offensive in the series its themes are not likely to appeal to younger viewers. The themes are dealt with is a realistic way but that doesn't mean there is no humour in the story; the brattish Kouki provides plenty of laughs and the series as a whole had me smiling from start to finish.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
