Teru Kurebayashi is left all alone in the world after the death of her brother, Souichirou. Well, all alone except for "Daisy," someone that she can always talk to and who never hesitates to cheer her up. However, Teru has never met Daisy, she has no idea what he looks like, and her only means of contacting him is through a cell phone that her brother left for her.

In stark contrast to the kind words and encouragement Teru receives from Daisy, she gets nothing but grief from the rude school janitor, Tasuku Kurosaki, who forced Teru to work for him after she accidentally broke a window. But while Kurosaki seems like a lazy good-for-nothing who only enjoys making her miserable, is there more to him than meets the eye?

*Review contains spoilers*

Story 6/10
I found this manga on MAL's list of "Top 10 Best Shoujo Manga That Haven't Been Adapted into Anime". I have to say that, although the story is in fact original to certain extent, I am surprised that this manga is the No. 1 on this list. Yes, again, somewhat original plot, characters are cool and no love triangles (yes!). However, this story could have had at least 25 less chapters and it might have been better. Midway reading, I found myself bored due to many unnecessary things happening and basically forced myself to finish reading it because mama raised no quitter. ...

Preliminary (11/80 eps)
The story is ok, the art is stylized and I actually kinda like it, the MC is fun and the supporting characters are fun too.

But the thing that ruins everything for me is that our main character is a 16 year old high school girl while her love interest, who we are supposed to root for, is the high school janitor and he's 24. That, my friends, is something the law calls "illegal", and I like to call it "gross" and "pe/do". (Also, if you try to justify an adult dating a child with the age of consent in Japan, then 1) you support ...
