Burn the House Down
Volume 1


When a fire broke out in the Mitarai household 13 years ago, the eldest daughter, Anzu, had to watch her mother, Satsuki, grovel to the ground and beg for forgiveness, as she thought it was her fault. Things only went downhill for the family, with Anzu's parents divorcing shortly after the incident.

Living with her younger sister Yuzu, 25-year-old Anzu—now surnamed Murata—works at a house cleaning company to pay for Satsuki's hospital bills. Her newest client is Makiko Mitarai, the second wife of Anzu's father who presents herself as the perfect housewife when, in reality, she refuses to clean any mess.

Having always believed Mikako was the true instigator behind the fire, Anzu considers this the ideal opportunity to prove her mother's innocence. Under the alias "Shizuka Yamauchi," she plans to infiltrate Mikako's house and search for evidence that will determine her culpability. Nevertheless, Anzu must remain cautious if she wants to succeed, as a single wrong step might prove too costly.

“The one living my life, is me. I’m the one who stands up when I fall, and the one who decides the path I’ll take. I am the only one who can change my life.” – Mitarai Anzu.

“Mitarai-ke, Enjou suru” or “The Mitarai’s House is on Fire” is a hidden gem, one of the most underrated Manga I’ve ever read. The premise is similar to some Korean old-school family drama but beyond that theme, it’s a touching and meaningful story about people struggling to overcome their life’s problems.

Like the title just suggests, the story starts with an impressive scene that appears in ...

"I told myself not to care about the crap people say when they've only gotten a glimpse of my life. Right now, I'm the one walking my path in life. When I trip and fall, I'm the one who decides whether to go back or push forward. The only person who can change my life is me, after all."

What a ride!

I've been in and out of reading slumps lately but this series was so addictive, I finished it all in a couple of hours. I'm so glad I gave it a try. I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it at first because I'm not into ...

The story starts with a big fire in the Miratai's house, as the wife sees the fire, she admits that it was her fault and the case is closed. Anzu, the daughter, believes otherwise. After seeing a recording of someone leaving the house after starting the fire with her father, Anzu believes that the new wife, who was previously her mom's friend, set the house on fire. And so Anzu begins investigating the house after successfully filtering it as a housekeeper to find clues about the fire that happened 13 years ago.

The story is just way too good, it's very entertaining, has the perfect length, ...
