After losing her mother to a traffic accident, five-year-old tomboy Michiru finds a "suspicious person" moving into her home: her father's younger brother Kouji, whom she quickly nicknames "Beard Gorilla."

Yet at the same time this manga delves upon the fundamentals of human emotion with a soft touch that I have rarely seen in anything else I have read or watched - a manga that finds the light comedy hidden within the fairly uneventful lives of the characters as a way of showcasing human relationships and emotion.
