Synopsis

Wakamatsu Masato lives with his step-sister, Miyuki, whom he does not have blood relationship with. Their father is always working oversea (in fact, he has not appeared in the manga at all...) and left the two of them living by themselves in Toukyou. Miyuki is cute, nice, sensitive and very popular among guys around Masato. Masato has a girlfriend at school whose name is Kajima Miyuki, who is pretty and gentle, the ideal dream of every high school boy. It took years for Masato and his sister to realize whom they love and care most after a lot of events. The manga is very nicely written, with excellent layout, interesting story and character developments, refreshing art style and filled with youth and emotion. It also shows the dramatic improvement of the author's skill.

I really enjoyed reading Miyuki after finding out about it following an anime of one of his other works.

It's a nice change from a lot of Adachi's mangas, of which i've mainly read the ones with sport themes.

I think the comedy is what really pulls the manga through, as the Adachi really has his own unique style of comedy that i've never seen in another author. Plus he also knows how to keep the reader tense with anticipation with the 'romance' segments.

The art style is fairly old but it fits with this type of humourous setting and characters. Plus it's a welcome change after read more

Recently read this. I am a fan of Mitsuru Adachi's works, and I enjoyed Miyuki despite its age. Unfortunately the last volume completely threw me off with its resorting to romance comedy conventions by making the main characters' relationship unrealistically evolve. Needless to say, I was NOT rooting for the main couple in this manga, and was heavily disappointed by the resolution.

I can give this manga a 7, a good romance manga by Adachi.

This manga is dated, so it's not for everyone, romance mangas get dated easily, so it's something to consider before reading.

Story - 5 - This manga drags a little more than it should have, and lacks a real story, it's all about the characters relations, i like this style of manga but some people may not. It has a conclusive and good ending that will no disapoint any reader.

Art - 7 - I can't call it dated since Adachis recent mangas have the same art he had in 1980, the backgrounds are beautiful read more

Both series deal with complicated family ties and attraction to a family member who isn't related by blood. Miyuki has a lot more silly, fun, or slice-of-life-ish moments whereas Jinbe is more easy-going and mellow, but because they're both by Adachi Mitsuru they still have a similar feel. 
Another Adachi's work. This time a little more romance and less action.  
They are both romance type relationship, except one has sports implemented. The similarity between the two is that the protagonist is halted at the same crossroad, choosing one woman or the other. If you like this one, you are sure to like the other.
