Kotarou Higuchi is a sixth-grade student who not only has to work hard to get into a good middle school, but he also has to deal with the responsibilities that come with living in an apartment all by himself. One day, while leaving for school, he is greeted with a surprise: an unfamiliar, older girl in a frilly black dress is waiting by his front door, asking to be friends with him!

Despite his attempts at ignoring her, the strange girl determinedly follows Kotarou all the way to school and back. Giving in, Kotarou finds out that the strange girl's name is Misha and that she is his new neighbor, supposedly from Heaven to work on becoming a full-time angel. What will become of Kotarou and his life with this "clingy angel"?

Kotarou Higuchi is a young boy with a lot of troubles. His mother died when he was young, his father is absent a large portion of the time due to work, leaving Kotarou to take care of things around the apartment they live in and, on top of that, he's not the best student and has to study hard just to get average marks - but wait! One day a mysterious girl claiming to be an angel moves in next door and won't leave him alone...

You know, to be honest, Pita Ten has what sounds like an extremely typical plot. In shounen series featuring ...

Let me just start off by saying: DO NOT WATCH THE ANIME.
Compared to the manga, the anime is complete crap. (My apologies if you have already seen the pita-ten anime and are scouting out the reviews to see if the manga is worth-while.)
The manga is much darker, and more in depth than the anime.

Pita-ten is the first, and by far the best, manga I have ever read. And this is coming from a life time lover of CLAMP's mangas.
Koge Donbo- I salute you.

Another thing to remember: Yes, this is a pretty common shoujo story-line. A boy befriends a magical being, blah, blah, blah ...

Mixed Feelings
Pro: Koge-Donbo's art is very charming and appealing to the eyes.

Con: Long-winded pseudo-plot; irritating characters that you're supposed to care about despite their only foundation being perplexing angst and tragedies guised as comprehensible character development, leaving a debilitated narrative in the ashes.

Result: After reading I am wary of reading any more of Koge-Donbo's works in fear of just wasting my time and being let down. This is a shame as I've fallen is love with her drawing style.
