From Prisms:

A romantic comedy about Fuwa, a guy living in a small apartment in overcrowded Tokyo, who wants to have a place of his own. Because of a building accident in their new office building, Fuwa's company (5 employees) had to move into his apartment, right after he had moved to a larger place. And the new employee (Hiyama Izumi, a 15 year-old girl) had to move into Fuwa's place, as she had just come from the country. Then Fuwa's old girlfriend Tokiko, who had already gotten married, ran away from her husband and came to Fuwa's place.

Both have no idea what they are talking about, they don't have sex when she's 15.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it doesn't happen until she's 17 just about to turn 18

God forbid they actually read a manga instead of writing it off because of their prudish values that don't even apply to this.

I enjoyed reading this manga. It starts pretty good. Everytime I finished a chapter, I couldn't wait to read the next one. Near the end, however, it gets more serious but less funny and the plot becomes loong and sloow. In fact, I had to force myself to read it to the end. They had put this manga as a "Slice of Life" manga but in my opinion some characters and situations in this manga a very unlikely to happen in real life. In short, it's an OK manga.

She so pure and naive that even they lived together more than year they dont do anything. But then turns out that her father kick her out of town coz she slept with her classmate. And than drama, cliche, drama, cliche. As always when author try to milk some money and make more volumes than story really need.

I thought this manga was incredibly good. The romantic development was pretty good and I really loved the Izumi and Fuwa relationship. I enjoyed their affection and the theme that Love is not is not hindered by AGE! It also didn't drag on like some other romances and was always filled with some entertaining rising action.

woohoo...i finished this one...and i loved it...Izumi was a little annoying in some places and the fact that just about every woman began to get feelings for Fuwa was a tad bit annoying too....but all around a good was funny and pretty sweet the one real issue i had with it was the moving every five seconds...honestly i don't think that was too realistic...lastly, the main theme of this one is finding your own place, be it your own home or a love hotel...but it was a really good manga...

Good story, interesting characters. I think the best are its characters, even though all the characters are "good people". Through the manga the story loses focus at times.

Cute story but this was one where I wished the story was shorter. At times, the characters grated on my nerves but not enough to keep me from finishing the story.

This manga is still one of my favorites of all times. Fun situations and great characters all around in this touching story. It has a good insight into the land speculation crisis in Tokyo.
Very much recommended if you have liked Usagi Drop for example.

I loved the first two volumes of Living Game. It was fun, wacky humor with likable characters and hinted at a greater theme being subtly discussed. And then it gradually gets worse and worse until it becomes nothing but stupid drama that reads like a rejected k-drama script. I've honestly never read another manga with such a slow and excruciating fall from grace. Rushed and unfulfilled endings? Sure, there's a million of those. But Living Game is unique in how painfully slow it commits suicide.

I'll recommend this as a light read, just keep an open mind, don't look too much for H(there is no raping or any anything of this sort, don't listen to small minded people) and read this nice manga light headed
