Although her life isn't exactly like a shoujo manga, Miku Ikenouchi's friends are convinced that it's pretty close. They say Miku is "doing well in the spring of her life"... Miku, on the other hand, is a bit skeptical. Sure, she has recently started dating a third year, has a decent part-time job, and her home life is peaceful. In fact, you could even say that Miku is content... but, maybe, too content?

Unfortunately, when she comes home Miku no longer has time to find out that her father has quit his job, and her parents are turning their home into a... boarding house? And, even worse, one of the new boarders is a guy from her school?! Miku is quickly going to find her peaceful days a distant memory from the past...

If you think Sprout sounds like a clique shoujo manga, you're most likely right. The good thing about Sprout is that, despite the unoriginality, the enjoyment of this manga is pretty high.
The story seems a little unrealistic and the art was adequate at best. The place where this manga shines is in the relationship between the characters. The complexity that goes on between the two couples is more in depth than other shoujo mangas. I felt there was enough comical characters to not weigh down the entire series with all the drama that goes on.
Overall I feel Sprout is a good read read more

Sprout starts innocently at first and can seem to be the kind of story that could be different from other shoujo mainly because of the setting the author has put in the main character in. Not many shoujo begin with a heroine that already has a boyfriend. But when her parents want to turn the house into a boarding house for some extra cash, it's easy to tell where this story is going. The heroine encounters people that invade her life and aim to stay for a while, and living in her own house will never be the same again.
