Ok, though I skim almost the last half but I still can understand what is going on each chapter

This manga come up with good theme for SoL story. However, the way it progress is not good. Some chapters isn't connect to each other. You can see that by reading a chapter which end with some character getting in problem so you will want to know how it is solved but the next chapter don't relate to the previous one so you may feel a bit down.

That is not the only thing. The role of character is unbalance. The troublesome character just appear to interfere with MC daily life. Those character some is minor, but some is important. However, once the problem is solved. They are totally forgot. The author never or rarely use them anymore. So it feel they are just plot device so the story can progress.

The last vol is a pain to read. It focus on daily problem just like the start. If those chap is at the start, there is no problem but they are put at the wrong place so it cause negative effect to me.

Rating this manga is a bit hard. It have good starting point that I want to give it high point while the later it make me feel so boring reading repeating motif without any interesting moment (1/2 Ranma use many repeating motif but I don't dislike it because it's fun to read)

too much drama

Way to much drama for my taste. Especially of the misunderstanding kind, and beyond stupid responses to those misunderstandings, all in the name of creating drama. But if the drama makes you disslike the characters, you're doing something wrong, which happened in this manga for me. If 'Soap Opera' was a genre, it would fit this manga perfectly.

I dropped it.

A very sweet romance that everyone must read. This manga is one of my top 5 manga's. My only advise is no matter what anyone may say negative (if such negativity actually exists) you should read the first volume and decide for yourself rather than letting someone else decide. I was a little hesitant to read this but what an idiot I was not reading this sooner. Recommended for anyone in the romance genre looking for constant smiling.

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.
