Synopsis

Shiratori Ryushi wants to become a picture book writer, and he moves to an apartment, Narutaki-So, in order to go to an art school in Tokyo. Narutaki-so is an old Japanese style one-story house which doesn’t fit in urban scenery. It is owned by the cousin of his mother, and the manager of the apartment is Aoba Kozue. She is his second cousin, and they met with each other when they were children although he doesn’t remember her much. She is in the second grader of a high school attached to Aoba Junior Collage.

There are five people living in Narutaki-So. First, Chanohata Kotomi is living in the room #1. She is a best friend of Kozue. Then, the resident of the room #3 is Momono Megumi. She is a kind of person who goes her own way. In the room #5, Kurosaki Sayoko and her daughter Asami are living. Asami is in the first grade of a junior high. Finally, in the room #6, Haibara Yukio is living with his puppet, “Johnny”.

They are all characteristic and eccentric persons. However, in fact, the most eccentric person is Kozue. She has a secret; when she is shocked at something, she changes her personality. Not knowing this, Shiratori moves to Narutaki-So to realize his dream. What kind of a new life will be waiting for him?

This is a very great story that the anime does not convey. People should definitely read the manga to get more emphasis on emotional parts of the story line. The character development is great and you learn a lot about everyone except the main character who doesn't seem to have much of a past but is ok.

The five main heroines do not appear as much as they should and there was a lack of involvement with the main character and the heroines. I think there should have been more touching moments between him and the girls to produce and even more dramatic end but read more

The problem with comedies is that it can sometimes be difficult to convey more serious or dramatic situations without betraying the series. In a way, a rigid balance is usually established, wherein there is a huge shift in art style or heavy atmosphere to let the reader know that what ever is about to happen is serious. This is all well and good, but the real world doesn't work like that. In reality, there are no art shifts and people don't tailor their actions to fit your mood.

That is one of the major aspects that I loved about this series - It's read more

When I found this mahoraba, I only interested by the multiple personality theme, at first. But as I read it more, I realized that this is certainly not just that. And likes it very much in the end.

The first thing I come to notice is the characters. Mahoraba really excels by the work of its characters. All cast is really appealing. Even some that are rarely appears has their own impact to either the flow of story or comedic relief.

I, or maybe most of you, might often find a character trait(s) in mangas that are used so frequent it makes the character themself boring. Well read more
