Bunny Drop by Yumi Unita
This is a series you should never pick up. It's disgusting. I read volume 1 and thankfully looked up reviews for the other books and the ending was so disgusting that I dropped the series. My sibling randomly picked up the first volume which we both liked. It's a manga and it starts off with a 30 year old man whose grandfather just died and it is revealed that the grandfather had a young child who's 6. The 30 year old man takes in the little girl when no one else wants to take care of her while he looks for her mother who seems to have abandoned her. He's pretty immature for his age but through the adoption becomes more responsible and a better person while taking care of her and helping her through her trauma. It definitely wasn't the best manga I've ever read but it was touching, though he was an annoying character. It was the story of a blossoming father daughter relationship and adoption. Now here's how it ends in volume 9 (there is a volume 10 but I think it's a flashback): It turns out the 30 year old man Daikchi isn't related to the little girl Rin. Now it doesn't matter because he's basically the only father she has/remembers. He's her dad. It doesn't matter if it's biological or not. Rin, who's now 16-17 tells Daikchi that she's in love with him, and they decide to eventually get married when she's older. He's 40 when this happens. WHAT EVEN?!?! Here's a little bit of a review to sum it up (I had to edit it a little):
"He tries to salvage the situation as best he can, giving an ultimatum that she give him two years to come to terms with the situation, and carry on with her school work as though nothing's happened - and if she meets someone she likes while in school to go for it and forget about him. Can't blame him for hoping that this will happen, though I'd still suggest the shrink myself.
Unfortunately for the poor guy, it doesn't work and after two years Rin graduates and is as infatuated as ever. It ends with Daisuke giving in, because 'he can never reject Rin outright'. It seems mostly like he doesn't want to hurt her feelings. And the two of them discuss the future."
First of all, how disgusting is that? Secondly, this isn't even realistic. Most normal adoptive parents would send their kid to a psychiatrist. And all of this is written by a woman. It's horrible. AND EVERYONE IN THEIR LIVES ARE HAPPY FOR THEM!!! I can't even believe that the character I knew in the first book did this. Anime/manga can be so gross and this is why I always do research before getting into something.
