Kazunari Usa's dream to live away from his parents is fulfilled when they allow him to move into an old boarding house called Kawai Complex. With his landlady providing him meals and his parents covering his rent, Kazunari finally achieves the peaceful life he longs for, as he is ready to enter his first year at high school. Or so it seems...

Upon moving into the boarding house, Kazunari finds out that he has to share a room with resident masochist Shirosaki. He must also live under the same roof as Mayumi Nishikino, a drunkard with a hopeless love life, and Sayaka Watanabe, a seemingly innocent college student. Although he is surrounded by these unique characters, Kazunari still counts himself lucky to be living in the same building as Ritsu Kawai, a second-year student he has a crush on.

As Kazunari settles into the boarding house, he soon realizes that the inhabitants of Kawai Complex are bound to add a twist to the life he has been hoping to live.

Bokura wa Minna Kawai-sou is the kind of manga that will catch a reader's attention in the first few chapters itself. It manages to live up to the expectations of people who have seen the anime adaptation and come to the manga looking for more. It's a Slice of Life so the main plot progresses at its own pace, but you'll never find yourself getting bored of it. There's always something entertaining going on at the Kawai complex.

The story itself isn't something extraordinary. It's a tale of 6 people - 4 adults and 2 students, each having their own eccentric personalities - living in the read more

Ah, this is my first review, so I apologize in advance if my use of English is not good because my everyday language is not English.
let's go to the discussion.
I think the anime producer bokura wa minna kawaii-sou made a mistake. why? because he adapted the anime bokura wa minna kawai-sou not until the end of the manga story. I'm sure if the anime is made a sequel until the end of the story, the anime bokura wa minna kawai-sou will become a phenomenal anime. I bought the manga from the beginning to the end. The manga's continuation storyline will certainly make readers laugh out read more

Bokura wa Minna Kawai-sou... First of all, I have to say, what a refreshing read. Heartwarming wholesome romance, hilarious comedy accompanied by beautiful and fitting art. I personally enjoyed every second of it.

This manga is pretty heavy on comedy, and the use of chibi art style is more than fitting. I’d say the art forms 70 % of the comedy in this particular manga. And if you’re looking for some cute wifus, the kawai complex presents plenty, especially close ups of certain female character’s facial read more

Living in this world we meet a lot of ppl, some of them are those who we like while some are we don't. Some of them are ppl we want to stay forever with and some of them are that we just want to get rid of them somehow. "Fate" is a just a word and an abstract noun for some of us,but for some, it's not. For some,Fate is the thing which made them who they are today and fate also decided the ppl they get to be with today. This manga portrayed the word"Fate" and how it can affect others life.
