I really enjoy reading this manga and I have read it twice thought it's not complete yet , so sweet and makes me relaxed. I really love characters and their relationship. Waiting for next chapter every time I finish current chapter and I really want to see thair love blooms. I think it is one the best Shoujo manga ever.

I wonder if in the next few chapters they'll confess to each other.
It was so light and it makes me wonder if it'll get dramatic soon.
Would there be a "time skip"confused
would they fall apart?
errr.. it would be cute if they'd start dating

So, I've only read up to Chapter 36 so far... I started reading this because I saw a pic of it when I was reading Gakuen Babysitters. When I first started reading this manga, I was absolutely in love with it. I mean, it's a very meaningful, and realistic. In my opinion, Shiharu somehow reminds me of Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket) in some ways. I mean, she's obviously a space cadet like Tohru lol. She shares a lot of similarities with Tohru as well. But the one thing I don't like about Shiharu is how spacey she can be. She's always like, "But, but..." or "This is yours so..." "Oh, I borrowed..." She's really conscientious about these things, and at first it was cute, but now it's just very, very old.

I really want her love-life to spice up just a little. Although, Shiharu is very, very oblivious to that sort of thing. She just recently discovered that Matsunaga-san is a "man", so to speak. Nao, is very much in love with her (for 8 years). Just to remind you, I'm speaking from 36 chapters in. It's very obvious that Nao loves her, and Matsunaga-san has a sort of attraction to her. Shiharu only view Nao as a type of brother, seeing as they "live" in the same orphanage. She views Matsunaga-san as a very nice person, but is starting to get conscious of his being.

Rio and Takera are adorable! So far, I like them! ^^ Also, Aoi-kun and Akane-chan are both adorable as well! You can't beat those two!

**Edit** (Chapter 56)... After about 20 chapters, Shiharu finally realizes her feelings. She plans on keeping it hidden... I wonder how things will turn out. It says 12 volumes on going in Japan, but I'm kind of hoping a Climax will start soon!

Just in response to some comments I've seen: Yes, it is slow, but that's also rather refreshing compared to many other manga - especially with the age gap! This is far more realistic.
It just feels /particularly/ slow because we also have to wait for updates. I feel if I was just reading it from chapter to chapter one after the other the pace of the romance would bother me less. At the pace it's going now the romance does lose its tension but I don't think that's completely at the fault of the author.
I gave it a 10 when I read the first 30 chapters in one sitting and I still stand by it now.

At first it was good the story was nice the characters development and relationships was going smooth, than it slowed to a snails pace. All of sudden everything is crucial and important, Sbiharu all of a sudden is incredibly annoying to me. I really liked it at the begining. I mean hurry up and get the bleep together! This pace is just to slow. I mean the two kids are cute, and the art is nice too, but I mean...

Love so life & Gakuen babysitters are the only mangas that I'm so bias about regarding the slow romance. It's just that I'm so focus with the toddlers' daily lives with their uncle & Shiharu & the family values they impart with the readers. That's why I don't mind any delay with the romance department because such developments is only secondary on this type of stories. The important thing is that this manga always gives a lingering happy vibe constantly with the life lessons it incorporated every chap. To me LSL has this unexplainable charm that makes your heart skip a beat every chapter releases. So to the potential readers out there, If you want a good manga for the soul please start reading Love so life, you wont regret it.

This manga started out so adorable!! The children are so cute! I wish the protagonist's love life would pick up the pace though.... it's gotten to the point where I get bored reading the manga. It's moving so slow!!!! The twins’ cuteness can't even make up for it at this point.... Which is sad because I really liked this manga in the beginning.

People have problems with the manga's 'slowness' but I really enjoy how the focus isn't just on romance. Sure, the kids are perhaps unrealistically easy to manage but nevertheless the manga is very well done. Shiharu develops as a character and there are secondary characters you actually care about. It makes a refreshing change from the standard shoujo in that it doesn't depict women as constantly at each other's throats. Also, Matsunaga is not just a cardboard cut-out bishie and experiences reservations about being attracted to a girl so many years his junior, as you would expect in real life circumstances. Recommended for sweetness and escapism.

Warning: Kids are NOT that easy to deal with

I don't think this mangaka has kids or has even dealt with them for an extended period of time in her life. Her portrayal of how children behave is far too simplistic, and the kids are too well-behaved for toddlers. I understand that it's to make her seem like "the perfect babysitter" who never gets frustrated, but I would love for one of the kids to throw a huge tantrum and have her deal with some real problems for once, like *gasp* not knowing what to do, or having to actually punish them.
Also, the romance is so slow--
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
50 chapters in and neither one of the two has realized that they like the other

I like slow romance, but this is just too much.
I'll still keep following it though, because I have no life and I want to know how it turns out at the end. The art is cute too.
