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.

Preliminary (35/64 eps)
I don't usually write reviews, but I am so viscerally offended by this manga that I felt like I had to let the world know.

Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie is written by somebody who has presumably never actually talked to a person in real life. Every character is a parody of a parody of a caricature of a caricature of a person, with the most comically tropey and idiotic reactions to any given situation.

Ninomiya is a stereotypical hard-working, well meaning but clueless dad, which isn't a crime on its own, but when you introduce Natsumi, the dynamic becomes unbearable. Natsumi is the most ...
