Office worker Yoshida has been crushing on his coworker, Airi Gotou, for five years. Despite finally scoring a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home, only to find a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, needing a place to stay the night, attempts to seduce Yoshida. Despite rejecting her advances, he nevertheless invites her into his apartment.

The next morning, the girl, introducing herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she has run away from Hokkaido all the way to Tokyo. During her six-month spree, she continually traded sexual favors for a roof over her head. Yoshida, however, remains unswayed by her seduction. Instead, he has her do a different kind of work—one that entails washing dishes and doing laundry. And so, a touching relationship between a heartbroken adult and a runaway high school girl begins.

It is strange if the final winding is regret or happiness.

This is the story about an office worker, Yoshida. One day Yoshida confess to his boss, but his confession get rejected by Airi Gotou. Until one day when he was walking to the apartment, Yoshida met Sayu, a high school girl. Sayu Ogiwara is a runaway girl from Hokkaido, Sayu tell to Yoshida if Yoshida can sleep with her as long as Sayu gets a place to sleep. However, Yoshida refuses Sayu and this story full of intrigue and drama begins.

This is my first review of a light novel.
I want to say that I am not familiar with English so I will try to write it correctly.
First of all I met Hige wo Soru. Soshite Joshikousei wo Hirou. Thanks to the manga, It is rare that an anime or manga encourages me to read his novel. My first impression of this novel was that I found a little different manga. The story is well developed but very slow since it does not focus much on some important details. This novel is better than some popular novels, this novel is different from the usual (not as read more

This story is about Yoshida an office worker living together with Sayu a runaway teenager in his apartment.

This is quiet interesting and enjoyable story for me, as we delve into their life how two unrelated people coexist and how they reflect their relationship each other.

The story focus on how Yoshida and Sayu live and interact day by day through usual daily activity. Then it deepen as living together like they do became more difficult as time passed. There also times where the character simply pondering their relation with other characters.

There are illustrations once every few chapters so we can grasp how the characters look like read more

I rarely read light novels, so my expectations for a great story are probably not that high. That being said, I can't help but fall in love with the characters and the world within this novel.

The synopsis gets the gist of the story, but as it progresses, more and more women are introduced; (small spoilers?) most become love rivals or bring up memories of the past. I wouldn't call this a harem by any means but there are multiple love conflicts. Side characters play a huge role, as they actively challenge the social norms and morality of the main leads.

What I love is read more
