Shoutarou Ninomiya, a father of two boys, is a workaholic who has taken no paid leave for 15 years. This comes at the cost of neglecting his family, causing his wife to file for divorce. Similarly, Natsumi Okajima, a mother of two girls, has had enough of her husband's adulterous behavior and leaves him.

Taking their children, both Shoutarou and Natsumi buy new houses to have a fresh start to their lives. However, they are conned by the same person in an elaborate real estate scam, resulting in the pair purchasing the same house! With little ground for legal dispute and insufficient funds to relocate, the two families are forced to live together.

Natsumi, being distrustful of men, keeps clear boundaries in the house. But as their children warm up to each other, the two adults' lives become ever more intertwined, and a sweet romance blossoms between them.

A divorced man, with two sons. A woman who wants a divorce, with two daughters. Put them together inside a single house given an accidental circumstance, and what do you get? Noriyuki Yamahana's take on slice-of-life, with a twist. It's a barrel of laughs, sweetness and genuine fun.

Little House with an Orange Roof (more popularly known simply as 'Orange Roof') is a story about how two people got tricked by a conman into living in one house, and the development that followed. A really simple, mundane plot that's been used since forever. But there's a rarity of finding a work telling the goodness of being read more

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. (Desmond Tutu)


This is perhaps one of the most common plots that has been used in movies, drama and literature. But the best thing about this particular series is that it gathers an average plot, a fairly decent cast and everyday life situations and combines them in to a great family manga.

In order for a building to become a house, it needs a family. And a family is a group which not only shares a roof but shares the good and hard times together as well. These are the read more

Hey everyone out there! This is my first review and i had to do it on this manga, I loved this manga because of how you are drawn in the story not because of the art but the story telling of this manga is great. Having two different people live together because some con artist scammed them and having them get along with each other for their children's sake. Eventually getting along and getting closer and closer. It's just a heart warming family story and if you guys or girls out there didn't read this, take some time and read this and I hope you read more
