Chihiro drifts through life with no purpose going from girl to girl until one day he finds an abandoned kitten in a box. He quickly falls in love with little Shiro and couldn’t imagine his life without her. One evening, Chihiro finds Shiro has fallen ill. While searching aimlessly for an animal hospital, he runs into Kumazawa, a local vet who takes Shiro into his care. Watching Kumazawa in action, Chihiro realizes he wishes to learn the value of life and asks Kumazawa to consider hiring him at the vet clinic. Kumazawa agrees, but only as his live-in housekeeper. Has Chihiro finally found his purpose in life or will living with the handsome vet be a little too much to handle?

"Honey Darling" left me with a refreshing feeling. I was happy following along enjoying the story and smiling as the two awkward characters discovered their love for each other through heartwarming scenes.

Akira (part of Homerun Ken) has amazing art. I love her semes as they are mature men with facial hair (instead of bi-shounens). Also, all her characters are not unrealistic in appearance or structure and are very appealing and dreamy.

What I like most about the manga - besides the art - is the simplicity of the events. The story is not gripping or over the top; the characters go about their business each day read more
