“In this world, things don’t always turn out the way we want them to.”

The story itself is charming. High School girl and part time babysitter falls in love with the uncle of the kids she’s in charge of. Actually the whole falling in love with a teacher or sensei has been done and sometimes butchered. This one is played rather nicely though. Suave till the end, or till the last chapter I read since it’s still publishing. So far, it’s about family. Not only the one you’re born into but the one that life or you choose for yourself. The innocence of kids and read more

i've totally falling in love with this manga! It's just amazing!
The art is very good and the story is also sweet. Those little twins're so cute, i want to give him a big hug.. lol
And of course? the main characters - Shiharu and Seiji. Shiharu is a very likable characters - kind, clever, open-hearted (i'm so tired of shy or stupids girl as the main characters of shoujo manga), so I really like Shiharu ( she reminds me a little bit of a Teru from Dengeki Daisy - the top of my favourite mangas). And Seiji...well actually I can't give any opinion of this read more

OH MY DAYS!!! I LOVE this manga! It's so heartwarming and cute and you fall in love with all of the characters, especially Aoi and Akane! I literally laughed and cried at the events in this and I wait with baited breath for the next chapter every time I finish the last. I still haven't found a manga to beat this one!

I know the story line seems over done but the execution of this one tops all the rest. It didn't feel overly cliched and things progressed naturally. It flows so smoothly and you can actually see and feel the passage of read more

I think to the readers of Love So Life, my rating for its story may be slightly strange. Yes, although the story may be truly sweet and extremely cuddly, if you're looking at a more professional perspective, I would say that this story is currently being repeated many times in many other manga as well.

However I do think that the story is very original in the sense that the story delivers quite a new taste of cuddliness and true familial love from the graphics and characters - this is not found in many forms of Shojo manga (at least of those I have read), and read more
