Quick Review – This Anime is not like your regular slice of life anime which shows Mother’s sacrifice for her child. This Anime involves action, and the fight scenes are well executed. The story of this Anime is as simple as mentioned in the above synopsis but here is one twist – Masane Amaha and her daughter Rihoko are not real mother and daughter Masane is more like her foster mother. The story is everything about the bond of Mother and Daughter between Rihoko and Masane and how she puts her life on the line to protect her daughter even though she knows that she won’t live for long.
So these are the Top 5 Mother’s day special anime that you can watch right now! Honestly, i can’t think of much better Anime series and movies mentioned above. Although there are three more Anime which i did not mentioned in the above list and they are
- Usagi Drop
- Clannad After Story
- Aishiteruze Baby
These 3 Anime series are similar to the above mentioned Anime series and Movies but in these 3 series its men who take care of child so i guess these 3 anime series are best to watch on father’s day. But basically father’s who take care and raise their child alone are no different then that of mothers. They play the role of Mother as well as Father. So if you want you can those 3 Anime series a try as well.
