Bitter sweet story. As people said here, this manga has really hit my soft spot. Just how sad can this story be?! I love the drawing style and I am a big fan of Sahara Miza. If you like drama, then this might be perfect for you.

It's very rare for me to give over a "10" rating without even thinking about it, but this manga deserves such a rating and then some. Sahara Mizu is doing an excellent job so far with "My Girl." This story flows well and the characters have so much depth and are very believable. This is probably the first time that I've ever read anything concerning the ups and downs of single parenting from a father's perspective, too.

Bravo.

Decided to comment on this one today.

Sweet, sad, hopeful... Perfect for me.
Those are the the words that come to mind when I read this.
I love Sahara Mizu's art and melancholic story telling style, and I enjoy this child/parent relationship a lot.
Not many manga can, or deal with family type manga.
But Sahara Mizu does an excellent job portraying this bittersweet manga relationship with her words and drawings.

The art is perfect for this story, the atmosphere and plot are amazing. The interactions among the characters are really believable, and it's good. I would recommend this for those who don't want to read about sports and love triangles. It's a good breather from typical manga. It's plain good.

Sad, endearing, bittersweet and touching.... blah blah, it's just REALLY good, I recommend it to anyone looking for something different to read. This is a manga that will make your heart ache (in a good way) and maybe make you tear up a little. Even though it says seinen, I'd say it's suitable for shoujo fans and josei fans. And of course the art just completely blows you away, as expected from Sahara Mizu/Yumeka Sumomo.

I have a tendency to separate mangas between two categories : thos who have "it",that little something, and those who don't. And this one definitely does have it.
The artwork is great, the story is great too, the pace is very good, but most of all... It has AMAZING characters. They just feel... real. Every single one of them. also the girl is fantastic, seriously I wish I could have a daughter like that, and the father is, well, fatherish.
But I also get teary every few chapters since the story is touching. So I give it a 10 by a wide margin. It is definitely in my top 5-6 mangas.

I cannot complain nor say anything bad about this manga. It's plot, art and development are simply astounding. I also cried in a few chapters of this manga, because it's simply too touching. And you can clearly see that its not a tragedy or sappy manga because it contains some comic relief. You can also learn about life through it.
I really recommend it. I'm even waiting for it to be released in the US so I can buy it, and I'm not saying it just because I love Sahara's manga, although that contributed to me reading this manga. <3

The artwork is beautiful - that was what caught my attention initially. I'm about to buy the comics from Amazon Japan - so I'm looking forward to see the artwork unscanned! The story is very sweet and touching, too. I can't wait for the next update.

Some serious flaws here, but still nicely done.

I liked the parenting part - both the father-daughter one and the one with the father's relationship with his parents. The concept that parents are still learning how to raise or support their children better even when they have already grown up is quite plausible. There were many aspects of the story that wasn't realistic, however.
For a five-year-old child, the daughter's thinking and some of her actions were way too mature for her age, no matter how many exceptional cases there may be. It's not just her, but some other children as well. The way they analyze their situation almost like an adult even though they're only five is too unrealistic. That really kills the story. And what kind of father let's his 5-year old walk around in the town all by herself?!! Though the author was aiming for a realistic story, it just couldn't truly come through to a solid, real life situation that may really happen. The possible future mother was done well, nonetheless. Contains some really good character development, though sometimes beyond reality.
