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 character yet, but i can say one thing - he's so handsome!! I hope it'll be a very sweet love story between those two, and they'll become a cute family)))))
god! it's so hard to wait the next chapters *cry*
Be sure, you'll enjoy this story, cause it's very very good)))
P.S. sorry for mistakes, my english isn't good, but i feel like i have to write this rewiew for sure.read more
“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 how someone changes your life just by their mere presence.
Shiharu is sixteen years old and lives in an orphanage. She’s been there since the death of her mother when she was five years old. Her dream is to open a day care of her own. Relentless in making her dream come true she has a part time job as a babysitter in order to save up money for it. The uncle and guardian of her two favorite kids, Seiji Matsunaga, asks her to be his personal babysitter and will pay her double what she makes in her current job. How can she resist?
Shiharu is a strong lead. Been on her own for a while she is looked at as like a mother hen to most of the other kids in the orphan. I would have liked to have seen her in other aspects of her life more but it was ninety percent of the time as a baby-sitter. No harm since that’s what this manga is about anyway. It would also be more weird if it was a sheltered girl, but Shiharu is mature for her age and is used to taking care of herself.
The characters are easy going and overall nice to get to know. None of the scenes with new characters is awkward or forced, it’s more of a casual introduction and they go about their day as usual. I am really looking forward to seeing some of the characters they introduced take a bigger part in the manga.
The manga isn't done publishing but you can tell right away it's building up for a romance. Maybe even a love triangle. Since it’s not off the table. Am I a little upset that the romance will be between a teenager and a twenty five year old adult? It’s a manga, and also a high school girls dream. Where else can they (I’m included ) live vicariously through? I say, bring on the sexy teachers, the mysterious and aloof guys, and the unattainable best friends.
The art is cute and average. The twins, Akane and Aoi are adorable. Seiji looks his part well and the in himself to portray his working side is believable and not exaggerated. It lacks in scenic beauty but it does great in character development (though slow).
A memory of her childhood, a recap of previous chapters and a new memory with the twins. This happens for the first three volumes. After that it stops giving recaps. Which is sad since I was looking forward to forgetting just so that I could be reminded.
Story is repetitive. For the first few chapters, it’s basically the same lesson as the previous ones. Baby-sit, play dress up, and awkward sexual tension they are obvious to. Which are probably my only problem with the manga thus far.
Heartwarming story. It’s actually so so sweet. Which is why I wanted so badly to give it a 10 but it’s too soon and it’s still publishing. 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 time through the story in a way that makes you feel a little nostalgic.
Really well drawn and the drawings of the kids are especially very sweet. Her eyes weren't too big and I didn't have any problems adjusting to the style the way I do with some mangas.
The character development here was stunning. I loved finding out a little bit more about each one of them through the chapters and watching the twins grow right in front of me!
I loved reading this so much! I would happily read it all over again and again if my data allowance would allow it! It feels so long between the release of new translated chapters because I want to read the next one so much.
This manga is amazing. So much better than the rest of the childcare mangas I've read and most of the regular shoujo manga I've gone through as well! I would recommend this manga to anyone who loves children (or reading about them), shoujo romance, slightly older guys, or family themes. You won't regret giving it a shot.read more
I fell in love with this manga! But I read it too fast and made it through all 85 translated chapters I can find. This is one manga that I'm actually screaming at my computer screen. "Noooooooooooooo!" "Yes!" or even just screaming at the top of my lungs. "Awwwww" sometimes is one of the things I say as well. I'm hoping I can find some translated versions soon because I'm dying to know what happens. The storyline isn't like any other. It's different from EVERY single manga I've read. I love the twins too! They are too cute! Then the "baby sitter is an orphan" thing is totally unique as well. I really hope this becomes an anime. It's truly an entire category by itself. 10 out of 10 is my score. I love it. I think I've re-read it 3 or 4 times now. read more
