Daikichi and Rin became one of the most heart-warming duos of the year. Usagi drop offered an exceptionally poignant and blissful story of parenting and being a child. Although I don’t know how it feels like to become a parent, I was deeply touched by this series because of how it reflected the particularly common family and societal issues that we tend to overlook—losing parents and becoming a parent.
In almost every culture, women are perceived to fulfil Project M, it’s like her anatomy predetermines her fate. In most cases, the ideas about woman are crucially linked to marriage, maternity, and motherhood. But is this really a natural phenomenon?
