Based on 10 review scores:
Overall, I found it to be enjoyable and entertaining. Definitely worth watching.
It’s a decently enjoyable watch. Give it a go if you’re bored, or if you feel like seeing Hina be an adorable 3-year-old.

My Anime List
Overall, I’d say that this was a great series that debuted so far. It has its good (the realism of taking care of people and becoming someone you never thought you’d be). It has its bad (the pointless fan-service and some blend character designs). And then it has the ability to make our viewers continue to watch through its drama that all started after an unprecedented tragedy. What originally thought by some viewers (you know who you are) to be a series that tried to get attention through common cliche instead became a series of a touching melancholy. Perhaps, responsibility changes people who they are from carefree to responsible. Perhaps, it is unprecedented events that leads to people to discover their identity. Or perhaps, it is the reality that most of us may face today in our lives that can be reflected upon from this series. But all in all, this series is something to keep an eye on (especially since it only covers roughly 1/3 of the light novels). Remember, responsibility is not a privilege, it is a right. Don’t believe me? Just ask Peter Parker.
In the end, I can’t call this show bad. Aside from Sako, nothing about it is truly offensive or rage inducing and it delivers some of its sweeter and more serious moments effectively. The majority of it just isn’t very compelling, the characters types are bit tired and so are the jokes, but in truth, it could have been an awful lot worse. Not a particularly shining recommendation but still … you could do an awful lot worse.
The Nihon Review
PapaKiki is an example of a series that can do a lot with what it has on its plate, yet it doesn’t and hence lacks an emotive punch. It’s not a bad show: most of the characters are likable, some scenes are quite sentimental and there isn’t too much copious fanservice to spoil the ambiance. Feel has taken a positive step in the right direction by making an anime with potential that mirrors Usagi Drop, and quite honestly, I was hoping that it would be just as amazing, which was perhaps an unrealistic expectation. At one point, I thought this would be a sleeper hit but choosing to delve within its comfort zone of trivial issues proved to be a disappointment. This perhaps goes to show that having all the right ingredients for a great anime isn’t enough; there’s also the question of how to make full use of them.
Overall despite throwing in the romance with Raika Listen to me, Girls. I am your Father! comes off as a college guy raising the perfect wife. I would not be surprised if I looked at the manga and saw an ending like that. All the fanservice with the girls and the crush the girls all seem to have on Yuuta just isn’t appropriate.
