Synopsis

All Miki Koishikawa wanted was an ordinary family and that's exactly what she had until her parents decided to move in with another couple and turned Miki's world upside down. Now she lives in a house with four parents and her totally cute stepbrother Yuu. It's bad enough being brought into her parents' strange soap opera, but Miki will star in a soap of her own as she deals with friends having affairs, trying to survive in school and ending up torn between her long-time crush, Ginta, and her new stepbrother!

Crazy love triangles...squares...? Well lots of crazy amounts of love. After the initial parent "trade" thing, it is easy to see why later Miki can be so confused in love.

Trading partners, parents living together, falling in love with your 'brother', student/teacher relationships, etc. There is no shortage of love faux pas in this fun and entertaining manga. Warning though...even though this manga is mainly a comedy the characters are not always happy. Passion and emotions all heat up in this whirlwind of a story.

I have recommended this to 4 people since it was recommended to me! Read read more

Crazy wacky situations that bring about the sweetest moments. This is the essence of Shoujo, and Marmalade Boy is no exception. Marmalade Boy manages to get it's firm grasp around the reader during this very sweet shoujo experience, and it never lets go.

Like most Shoujo manga melodrama shall always peak it's unwanted head into our world. As to be expected with angsty teenagers, but never fear Wataru Yoshizumi is a smart women and knows how to handle this with care. The thing with Melodrama that makes it unbearable at times is it stays around far too long. However this isn't the case of Marmalade read more

After reading Handsome na Kanojo from the same mangaka, I couldn't wait to reread Marmalade Boy after reading it two times and dropping it. This time I finished without dropping and read it in a duration of nearly half a day.

I dropped it twice before probably because I was still immature and hated love triangles not even giving it a second thought that they will end up together in the end anyway since most Shoujo manga do. But a third time, I've read countless other Shoujo manga and was exposed to many more genres, storylines and ending that left me sad and heartbroken but read more

This manga is very entertaining. In every volume, there is a new surprise that adds to story appeals. The story might not have the average personâ??s ordeal, but it is very easy to relate with the characters. You canâ??t help but fall in love with them. The art isnâ??t the best I have seen, but it is pleasant to look at. There are many cute cover pictures. Overall I recommend all people interested in romantic comedies to read. You will not be disappointed.
