Give this manga a chance

This comment will be quite biased, as a previous commenter said, I'm a sucker for these kind of stories.

I recommend it if you want a heart warming and likable story. Even if the stubbornness of some of the characters is annoying, it all happens for a reason (some times those reasons you need to discover them).

Give this manga a chance.

I'm rating this a 10 because I enjoyed this manga a lot. It's sweet, funny, and has that heartwarming family story. I'm a sucker for those. You should read this manga if you're into Slice of Life. While reading this manga, I thought of a drama I watched before. It gave me the same impression of a happy family ending which is why I fell in like with this manga a lot.

It was an incredibly sweet and heart-touching manga. However, you can tell that the author struggled with finding content to end the series with which is a shame. I grew incredibly attached to the main character and Natsumi. All in all, Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie was a good investment of my time.

Natsumi got on my nerves. Stubborn to the point of pigheadedness and why? She was the cause of contention half the time.

Overall the story's okay and I laughed more than once, but I only finished because it was completely scanlated. I wouldn't have stuck with it otherwise.

If you're looking for a funny, heart-warming story, then you should definitely pick this up. I found the story to be very interesting. It was hard for me to stop, so I finished it in one-go. The characters are very likable and the art was fantastic. Some of the scenarios were pretty cliche, but hey it only added to the entertainment!

I was surprised at how well balanced this story is. Unlike many other seinen mangas the characters personality or physical appearance was exaggerated. The drama also didn't drag, but served as a way to keep the story entertaining.

I really liked the art and the kids are just so cute. I was very happy when i got to the end.

cute story

art is bit lacking except for Natsumi, she is extremely cute.

to sum it up, I felt that it's like fairy tale, no sense of realism at all, there are too many plot holes, like most of the conflicts are only short term, so It wont get you depressed or awkward.

there is some fast forward not mentioned by the author you can notice Natsumi cut her hair twice, if I recalled correctly.

if you like heartwarming light family story with some romance, perhaps you will this.

being a 24 y/o loser that failed at love and romance for the 4th time now, this manga is like telling me to not give up to find my really special someone.

yes, this manga is cliche'd and stereotypical, but i think its every guy (or loser's?) dream to have a loving wife, some really cute childrens, and a nice home to rest after a hard day's work. isn't it?

a nice and funny story

but man....some of the chapters....are just painful to read

pretty much all the filler like chapters are some of the most generic, stereotypical, cheesy, and just plain bad examples of storytelling out there.

nice art though
