posted on 2011-07-20 11:50 EDT by Egan Loo
The Usagi Drop television anime series will ship on four Blu-ray Disc/DVD volumes between October 28 of this year and January 27 of next year with four "original mini-stories" as bonus extras.
The first volume will have the first two television episodes plus "episode 2.5" ("Happa no Suizokukan" or Happa's Aquarium). The remaining volumes will each have three television episodes and one of the following mini-stories: episode 3.5 "Santa-san e" (Dear Santa), episode 6.5 "O-Sora ni Mankai" (Full Blossom in the Skies) and episode 8.5 "Kaeri Michi" (The Road Home). Each volume will also include the credit-less version of the opening and ending animation sequences.
In the story, 30-year-old bachelor Daikichi (Hiroshi Tsuchida) discovers a little girl named Rin (Ayu Matsuura) in his grandfather's garden while at his grandfather's funeral. Rin is the unwanted 6-year-old daughter of Daikichi's grandfather, and Daikichi decides to take her in when no one in the family accepts the responsibility.
