Synopsis

Meet the Sakamotos...a typical, upper middle class family of six with one peculiar quality-namely, they're all uncannily good-looking! That is, except for one member of the clan-14-year-old Akira. At that awkward stage where teenagers feel out-of-place in general, Akira believes he's average in the looks department, which simply doesn't measure up. How can he be around his family when he feels like he's being judged against them all the time? Will Akira's complex about being "different" cause him to turn away from the people who love him most?

Family Complex is another of Mikiyo Tsuda's masterpieces which i enjoy to this day :P
Published before the parent story "Princess Princess" this Manga focuses on the family of the Sakamotos' who are abnormally beautiful apart from 14 year old Akira who feels "normal" from the rest.

The story takes the form of taking the point of view of the various siblings and parents about life in the family and what it means to be "beautiful" and that beauty is not as glorious as it may seem to be.
It also has very powerful messages about looks and family life in general while adding that bit of comedy read more

As the first manga Ive ever read, it wasnt terrible. It consists of a boy that has abnormally beautiful family members, which is constantly being compared to his average looks.

It has plenty of light-hearted humor with bishounen and bishoujo. The story itself is a little dry, being that the main character is constantly whining about not being as hot as his family, as well as the occasion glimpse of read more
