Synopsis

Less than siblings. More than friends.

When her grandmother passes away, high school student Kajitsu Toda suddenly finds two hot stepbrothers and an adorable little stepsister dropped in her lap! Kajitsu and her step-siblings have only one thing in common: they were all abandoned by their parents. Against the odds, they've pulled together to form a family without grown-ups. They don't want charity, they don't want pity—they just want their dignity!

Things are particularly tough for Kajitsu and her step-brother Natsu. As kids, they were as close as any true siblings. Now, reunited for the first time in seven years, they've grown as far apart as two people can be. Can they ever become friends again? And can two high school students living together, even as "siblings" ever escape scandal?

The story of Crossroad isn't really original... The protagonist, female, 15 years old has to move in with her stepbrothers due to some circumstances and love develops between her and one of her brothers; some developments between her and her teacher are also involved.

However, overall I still give Crossroad a 9. Why?

This is why: Because, putting the story aside, what makes this manga so awesome are the characters. All of the characters are hilarious and make you feel good, in my opinion you cannot really dislike them.

The main characters family for example:
The brother in which she isn't interested is really... well... dumb and tries to read more

Story: I guess the story plot wasn't too original. The heroine moving in with her two stepbrothers and a little stepsister (and oddly none are not bloodrelated.) I wish that was explained. And it is pretty certain living as nonrelated stepbrothers, something is going to happen. And oh yeah, something does happen. So basically the story is filled with plenty of love traingles, and bad pasts. Pretty cool, I only wish it was more original.
Art: Pretty good...No comment
Character: Man, I love strong heroines. Ones that are independent, strong-willed, caring, and yet have a complete insecure side. Character development was cool, I just could never read more

Lets start this off by saying, it's not for me. But that doesn't necessarily make it bad. I picked up the manga eight or so years ago and never finished it. Something made me think of it and out of curiosity, I decided to dive in for a second time

The story is obvious. There isn't a moment where you aren't sure where it's heading, you always know and you are always right. Even so there are a few times where even I got swept up into the drama. I enjoy the kind of cheesy melodramatic writing Crossroad's is full of. But that isn't what read more

Okay, when I say family; what do you think of?

Blood, right? Not cuts and bruises but genes and stuff.
And this story is doing a 180° on the definition.

As I started reading, I brutally trooped along the beginning of the story. It was like walking through a freezer of emotion (no emotion what so ever), a 'family' that is not related in any way and has a hoe for a mom that keeps disappearing to 'find a husband' which by the end of the story she still doesn't.

So in this 'family', there is a fifteen year old girl, who, guess what, has a thing for her read more
