From Viz:

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with Daisy, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, Teru meets and forms a strange friendship with mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki, her school's janitor. For some reason, Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help which leads Teru to wonder: Could Daisy be a lot closer than she thinks?

As the mystery of Daisy unfolds, Teru also discovers that there may have been a lot more to the life and death of her brother than she ever dreamed . . . and that the man she thought was her friend just might have all the answers.

I loved this manga and have been following it since it was first released as a scanlation. The love story between Teru and Kurosaki was well-paced, and thankfully it didn't follow formulaic shoujo. In itself, it's pretty unique, as much as most of the mangaka's works, involving the theme of technology and action which I think is more on the side of seinen. It's always wonderful to read a female lead that isn't overly tsundere or an overall weak-willed crybaby. For a 16 year old, Teru has matured into a strong young woman.

On another note, I don't know why a lot of people complain about the age gap. In the first place, this manga was already tagged with the 'Age Gap' category. I don't think you can call a manga an 'age gap manga' unless the MC's have at least 5 years between them, otherwise it's like reading a manga about childhood friends and such. Even 5 years isn't that much of a gap, it all depends on a person's maturity and we all know that it doesn't equal with age. If you compare this manga to reality, it would even look a lot more ideal/better.

In reality, once a kid steps into adolescence, more often than not, they've already started experimenting with sexuality - even 11 year old kids engage in relationships (I think THAT is more disturbing than this manga's age gap theme).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending was a little bit anti-climactic, what with Teru being hit more than once and then fainting, only to wake up when Kurosaki puts an onigiri in her mouth. I thought it was funny, but at the same time, "Didn't the mangaka have at least any other ideas to go about it?"

Akira was sooooo cute with his hair all cut up!!

I'm basing this on the latest available volume. I’m probably alone in this and maybe it’s just the Western way of thinking but once Kurosaki and Teru officially started dating, I immediately became sick. When you put it on paper, eight years isn’t that big of a difference but when all I think about is she was in kindergarten while he was middle school/junior high; I just can’t get on board with it. Also the fact that he’s called a “lolicon” throughout the majority of the story and then about a volume or a chapter before they get together, it’s just acceptable by everyone (except Rena -_-). He even called himself a “lolicon”.

I think I wouldn’t have such a bad taste in my mouth if they had held out until she was out of school or at least a legal 18. Thoughout the story, I thought that was the plan and that made the awkward flirting and pining bearable but now all I can think about is I wish I never started this manga.

This was a lovely manga in my opinion. It can tend to drag a lot but it's worth it. I love the main character, and the male lead wasn't too shabby if I do say so myself. wink The side characters were all lovely as well, and believe me the more you read the more the 'hacker' plot starts to make sense. This is definitely a manga that you need to read a lot of before it makes sense to you, but it is worth it. This is one of my favorite manga and one of the few series that I love enough to be willing to spend the money to get the physical copy.

The art is also great, so that's a bonus.

Okay. I read this coming from Otokomae Beads Club and Penguin Prince. I was expecting that light-hearted romcom with funny expressions that I love so much. That's how I knew Motomi's works. But agh. This... spiraled down hella fast. Became heavy. A bit melodramatic. I was surprised but didn't hate it. And I like the side characters and their stories, too. But... the change in mood was really jarring and it put me off a bit. And it's stretching. Perhaps if this was a shounen or seinen manga I would look at it from a better point of view. I went from wanting to know what will happen next to going 'meh, what comes, comes'.

The art is nice and the main characters are super funny biggrin I like this one a lot but it's really hard to read it as it's being released because I always end up forgetting and having to re-read. I don't even remember all the characters >.< I think I'll wait until it's finished before picking it back up again.

with bossmama.
Sure this is good manga, but there are lots of manga that are MUCH MUCH better than this one.

P.S. Daisy is supposed to be cracker, not hacker. He destroyed 'something' when he hacked.

I love this!

It has all the elements I love in a comic series: Believable romance, hilarious comedy, tight plot, intelligent main characters, and hot guys.

To all of you fans of this manga, I'm not going to say sorry but please do consider my feelings too

I'm not saying it's bad - Dengeki Daisy just isn't for me. The plot was too draggy for my taste, and the melodrama...kinda pissed me off. I just can't ever understand WHY there's so much angst, and the conflicts stemming from it really confuse me beyond comprehension.

Also, what's the hacker plot? I don't get it's purpose in the story. Someone enlighten me please. -_-

Dengeki Daisy is one of those rare mangas that no matter the genre, it can be counted as one of the best ever written. Now, that may seem biased and foolish to others because people are constantly tauting things as "Amazing" and "The greatest" for works that deserve a F- in all categories all because they are popular and mind numbing.

Dengeki Daisy isn't like that. It actually has a well thought out plot, one that is structurally sound, interesting, and tight as a story line can possibly be. To be truthful, if you pay close enough attention to the plot you can notice that every little thing that seems "insignificant" ends up being extremely significant later on. The plot, from a writers perspective, is beyond masterful. I can not express how well it was executed. Yes, the idea itself isn't all that perfect and a few things are not actually correct, but you tend to look over such things so it doesnt bother many, if any. The art is unique and progressely gets better, for the most part it has its own charm.

The main characters are a dream for a shojou yet we've seen they're types before. Yet, somehow, someway it ended up being completely different. We have Teru, a poor but strong young girl who lost her brother three years prior to the story and the only person she can count on, emotionally, is a person named Daisy who only contacts her via a phone given to her by her late older brother. There are many ways this could have gone, and if the author was anyone else, I'm sure it would have ended the first few volumes. Instead of doing things gimmicky, it is mature, with a hint of childishness that balances out the sadness and drama. Then there is Kurosaki, a devilish tsundere janitor at the school who by a cliche accident becomes her "master". As it progresses we learn (pretty much in the first couple of chapters) that he is indeed Daisy and is watching over and gently caring for Teru at the behest of her brother. Its easy to see that he truly does care about her and his jerky facade is only to keep her from learning he is her beloved "Daisy". Later on, when you learn about his past, you can not help but feel warm inside when you see his gentle and innocent smiles. (which fortunately make a come back.) Both characters start out strong and only grow stronger, their character devolopment is consistent and interesting. While the first volume starts out shakey, it soon evens out. (I should remind you that DD was originaly supposed to be 3 chapters long and thus the so-so beginning is forgivable.) Every character in the story is likable and is well protrayed. Somehow they ended up being very human (which is hard to accomplish...Trust me.... T.T) When they face hard times, or when they are upset, when facing drama, their actions and emotions are realistic. Like many of us, they do what they can to keep things from falling apart and never utter those clich words of "With the power of love everything is forigiven!" Because like in real life somethings can't be forgiven, especially by the "sinner" themselves and sometimes that can not heal a person.

This manga touches on some really interesting, albiet slightly heavy topics. Regret, sins, the right to be happy, burdens, overcoming the past. Its an engaging read to say the least. It always borders on being realistic with a hint of fantasy.. Anyone that says it has gotten boring lately deserves to be punished. Its just started heating up for the last and most important arc. (Again, can not stress how much you should have taken note of the little things. Chapter 12 and beyond was the obvious route from the beginning.) I feel that as of chapter 68 that there should be at least three more volumes to properly end the series. If there isnt...I'm going to be upset.
