Shiharu Nakamura is a high school girl who loves children, lives in an orphanage, and aspires to run a daycare. She works part-time at a nursery school where the cute two-year-old twins Akane and Aoi Matsunaga attend. One day, a handsome young man named Seiji Matsunaga comes rushing to pick up the twins, but they refuse to go home with him, clinging onto Shiharu instead. Shocked by the children's strong attachment to Shiharu, Seiji urgently requests for her to babysit them, offering to pay twice the amount she currently earns at the daycare. Shiharu realizes the cash will cover her living and schooling expenses while also providing the experience she needs to fulfill her dream.

Love So Life follows the happy days of Shiharu as she finds herself falling in love with her makeshift family, and the twins as they live out their early childhood playing, learning, and growing.

I fell in love with this manga!!!!!
the characters are so freaking cute and amazing. I finished this manga in one go. I am addicted to aoi and akane (the little kiddos) they were so cute, some parts of the chapters made me cry they were so cuuteee uuugghhhh . And Nakamura was so adorable, i just fell in love with her character.
this is the most pure, innocent and lovely manga I have ever read, truly, i have read almost 2000 romance mangas and believe me, this manga made my heart warm and filled with love. this manga is a little bittersweet.
the way the sibling ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (55/111 eps)
Love So Life is an original manga after my opinion. There is not usual for a manga to have younger children as a part of the main characters, however this manga succeed in having an interesting story even with younger children as such a huge part of the plot line

What i find very amusing about this manga is the characters. Shiharu is a good feel character with a strong spirit. She has been through a lot but is not depressed and a character which need support from those around her. In one way she is quite mature, but emotional immature. The twins are amazing characters ...

Preliminary (50/111 eps)
I've read up to the fiftieth chapter and the main coupling is not cannon yet. They show signs like "what is this feeling" or denies it at times but the romance seems to be going absolutely no where. The mangaka focuses more on the main character taking care of the twins and comparing it to her past, which gets annoying.
