But this no longer happen. Soon, there is an UFO landed in Miyu's uncle house. Inside the UFO, there is an cute baby, name Ruu and with his babysister, Wannya...
I really... REALLY loved this story! It's a shame no one has reviewed it yet!!
Miyu, whose mom was chosen to be an astronaut, was sent to live with a boy named Kanata she just met. Amidst the panic, a mysterious UFO came and a baby and catlike alien from planet Otto land at their residence and Miyu and Kanata have to deal with them and their own problem each day. Meanwhile the relation ship between the 4 of them get closer...
This was actually the first Alien comes to Earth manga I actually read! so the story was pretty original in my eyes. The plot all flowed extremely well, with its comedy and twists of angst thrown in. The fact that Ruu was beyond cute and his story was very well put together. However, I think the ending was WAY too rushed. There could have been a lot more included about after the ending.
The art is my favorite type of art, shoujo at its extreme. Big bright eyes, flowy outfits on the girls, lots of blushing and awesome expressions. Nothing more, nothing less. Its one of my favorite things about this manga. And the characters were drawn so well, they fit the personalities.
The characters were amazing. Miyu was your typical heroine, clumsy, shy and very stubborn. Kanata was of course, the main male, stubborn, rude and good at hiding his feelings. Add in a split personality rival, too good looking for his own sake dork, alien obsessed otaku, flying alien babies and a talking cat and youve got a whole selection of awesome characters. I really just wished they went further into who Ruu's parents actually were. EVERYONE reading it know they look exactly like Miyu and Kanata.
If you get over the slow parts and small cliches, and the horribly rushed ending, you have a wonderful story with awesome characters. If all the chapters where out at once (Which I had to wait at least 2 months at a time) I would have read it all at once. It was THAT good. And I absolutly loved the pairing of Kanata/Miyu. The cuteness was overall adorable.
If you like the supernatural genre and love shoujo style art, this manga is for you. It may be a tiny bit cliche, but the characters make up for it! Give it a go, it may just end up being your favorite manga! read more
