comedy romance


Iwaki Tomonori is an average 15-year-old boy who likes older women. He happens to have a crush on his teacher, but soon thereafter, learns she has become engaged. He heads home brokenhearted, only to find a 12-year-old girl named Rizel at his home, who he learns the Japanese government has married him to against his will. Furthermore, he learns Rizel is no ordinary girl; she is a biochemically engineered human, and her creators (her "papa"s, as they are often referred to) promise to waive multiple bills of Iwaki's parents in exchange to be allowed to stay at their house, and thus Iwaki's life with Rizel begins.

Okay... Lets start by the story.
Story: (2)Okay. The story is just dreadful. Its just so goddamn clichê, lame and unrealistic that its a miracle i gave a 2 for it. (Well, the final 5 episodes save the day in the story part, i guess.)
I really won't give any details about it. The synopsis already does that job. The rest is just spoilers.

Art: (8) Well, you might ask why such high score for the art. Well, the character design neither the background are annoying.
They are all pretty well made and detailed. No downs here ("So why 8?" you ask, well there is nothing new. thats why.)

I'm mainly writing this review to balance out against the other review. I watched this all the way through and rather enjoyed it.

Story: While stereotypical, it was an amusing romp. The individual episodes go fairly quickly and keep it at a decent pace. Some of the stuff comes from left field, which makes it a bit fun. There is comedy, romance, and good hearted fun.

Art/Sound: It's drawn in a "modern" style, not 90's or large eyes. The Ecchi is fairly tame, and its not all little girl.

Character: The interaction between the characters was pretty amusing. Standouts include the main girl herself, and her Pappa/Mamma guardians read more
