Uru is a very short girl and is constantly mistaken for an elementary school kid, but despite that, she is ridiculously strong and decides to live by herself after her mother gets remarried. She ends up working at a small cafe with two rather unique co-workers, Shindou, who acts gruff and intimidating, but who is really a nice guy who loves to make cakes and pies and the like, and Ichirou, who is really good-looking but who instantly falls asleep when he gets hungry and doesn't wake up again until he's force-fed something? What will the future bring to them?

=Story= 8/10

The story is funny, sweet and quite episodic. Setting wise it centers on the man heroine, Uru's working life at a cafe. Generally all characters love Uru very much however she is not romantically conscious (at least for a long time). The sparks between love rivals is funny but at times I thought it was repetitive. Also I did think that too many characters (madly) love Uru but again there's less angst thanks to that and that suits the story more.

=Art= 7/10

It's pretty well done (nothing impressive however) but the only point I dislike is that sometimes the characters look so similar (setting read more

This is my first review so here it goes :)
Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume is one of the best mangas i read since Hana kimi. I am sure that if anyone like Hana Kimi, they will also like Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume.
No, its not gender blender. But its cute/funny/ makes u feel happy while reading it. The Characters are amazing, each one of them have thier own personalitay and You can feel different feeling for each of them.
Each chapter hold somthing breath taking. And DOnt get stop when u see the cover *Dont Judge a book by its cover*

= Story =
- This story is fairly slow. The development is slow. I'm not one to like slow plots, but 'Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume' is a definite exception. At the end of the story (82 chapters + side stories), the mangaka says so herself that the development was meant to be slow which makes me love it even more b/c she knew what she was doing.
So the plot is just the 'go with the flow' type of plot (Fairy Tail). Uru starts working at Bouheur cafe along side Nakamura Ichiro and Shindou Satsuki. Things just go with the flow from then on out. The plot is read more

First thing, first. If you don't have patience, you won't get to what this manga is really about. This is the type of manga that repays you, if you get to the ending. I started reading it as a cute shoujo with cliche after cliche, but what I got in the end was tears, both of sadness, first, and joy. As for the characters and story as a whole is just a generic one for a manga, with stereotypes, but that doesn't take anything away from it's charm and great ending. So even though the art is not great and the characters aren't developed properly read more
