‘Usagi Drop’ Anime Gets NIS America Acquisition

1 min read

After getting a pickup for foreign release earlier in the year through a different distributor, NIS America has announced that they’re the ones with the rights to the show in North America and plan an August 2012 release for the series. The series was one that was simulcast during its run in the summer of 2011 and ran for eleven episodes on Crunchyroll. The show is based on the manga of the same name, released as Bunny Drop in the US by Yen Press. The NIS America will be a DVD/BD combo premium edition release.

Plot Concept: By force of circumstances, a 30-year-old single man with a full-time job suddenly starts raising a 6-year-old girl. While running each other ragged, the two of them gradually grow into a “family”. This is the long-awaited anime version of “Bunny Drop”, the extremely popular and finely crafted comic by Yumi Unita. It’s a heartwarming and entertaining work that naturally depicts child-raising experiences, but also the instantly relatable warmth and noise of being in a family.
