A heartwarming, and somewhat humorous, movie about three homeless friends who find an abandoned baby, Tokyo Godfathers is one of the most surprisingly entertaining movies ever to come about in the anime circuit. When three misfits find an infant on Christmas Eve, they decide to take turns taking care of her and helping to find her mother. However, it certainly won't be that easy. In such a large city filled with tons of secrets, the three are easily pulled into a more complex situation than they would have ever thought possible.
Despite some of the more darker elements in this movie, the story still has a lot of lighter moments to offer that will certainly make you feel warm and fuzzy. Series like Bunny Drop are a perfect follow up because it also discusses children who are abandoned by family and a person taking up the responsibility to care for them. If you'd like a little more humor in your shows, there's also the ever-popular Hinamatsuri, which is a little different since a yakuza member randomly becomes the caretaker for an alien girl.
