romance shoujo


Before he died, Kurebayashi Teru's brother gave her only a cell phone, telling her to contact "Daisy" if she ever needs someone to talk to. Now, even though she lives alone and without relatives, Teru never feels lonely because Daisy is her constant confidant and supporter.

In order to pay off a debt, Teru finds herself needing to work for the rude, inconsiderate, and abusive (not to mention quite handsome) school janitor, Kurosaki Tasuku. While her predicament seems on the opposite spectrum of her relationship with Daisy, maybe Teru's two different worlds are more closely connected than she thought?

“No matter what happens, I’ll protect you.”

Where have I read this line? Wait. Let me think.

Oh right, from oodles of shoujo mangas I read. I remembered dropping a lot because they were a lot too similar to each other. It just differs from the art to its supporting characters and leads. There’re a lot of arcs being used over and over and over again. Hotsprings, going on field trips, getting locked in a gym storage room and whatnot.

Of course, Dengeki Daisy springs out the cliché plots at its peak.

As another fan of the shoujo genre, I am once again amused on how Motomi Kyousuke handles read more

I recall my initial thoughts on Dengeki Daisy as I first came across its information page: Another overrated shoujo manga with a simple plot and the cliche catch phrase "I'll protect you".

Oh, how wrong was I.

Shoujo is known for its obscenely perfect guys as well as the air-headed heroines who fall for them. On the outside, our cast here seems to be no exception. However, the protagonists contain a surprisingly high amount of depth. In essence, we follow the lives of two characters at the same time. Teru, who is cheered on by a text-friend whom she has never met, and Kurosaki, who lives a read more

Even though I don't usually read Shoujo, after going back to Kaichou wa Maid-sama, I found this Dengeki Daisy. I thought 'since they are similar why not try it?'

I didn't regret my choice at all, because I do love this manga. I've just recently started, and in just a few hours, I can't stop reading, I've cried MORE than just "a couple times," but I've also laughed, actually laugh.

The art is great; the story line is very interesting and mysterious; even though it has many cliche ideas like hot springs trip and whatnot, it still manages to make it look unique and just plainly interesting. read more

If there were one shoujo manga I could have everyone read, regardless of gender or personal preference, it'd be this one.

I first heard of it when it began being scanlated (is that a word??) and the summary made me scoff. "I will always protect you.."? What kind of crap is that? Sometime in early 2010, I went by the Dengeki Daisy page on and looking at the ratings, I was shocked. An average of 9.1/10? It is a standard unheard of in shoujo manga. The shoujo genre is always one riddled with criticism due to its reliance on cliches and stock characters, however, this read more

User Recommendations

the similarities are the main heroine is not too feminine, and the guy is protecting her in case of danger.
Both girls have a person who's anonymous through internet protecting them through hard times. The drama and depth in Dengeki Daisy is deeper then Koko ni Iru yo and at the same time has more comedy in it. Koko ni Iru yo is a shorter story.
both are comedy romances. if you liked one, you'll like the other
Both have as protagonists a tomboy girl with a very energetic and optimistic personality, and willpower. She ends up being helped and protected by a serious good looking boy, and starts to get along with him everyday. The boy, who in the beginning only had the goal of helping her, actually starts smiling around her, and slowly changing, opening his heart, while the feelings between the two start to grow. A lot of comedy and sweet moments:)
Both stories have main characters who have lost their brother due to death and are left with a protector to stay by their side.
reportRecommended by PF - Add to favorites
A kind, older guy who does not really show his concern towards the heroine, except at moments it is really needed. And the heroine is a strong person, who has a deep love for her family, but that is not going so smooth (because of other reasons). Both stories do show the love growing between both characters, but it also pays more attention to other factors, like seeking support, finding solutions to problems etc.
