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.

It may be an exaggeration, but this manga truly fits into the slice-of-life genre without the depressing angst and soap opera-like plot twists. My favorite parts of this series is the natural development of events, where things don't happen just because there is a "chance" or "opportunity" to develop the plot. Like chapter 35: totally expecting some lovey-dovey moment, but in one page the author dispelled all hopes of THAT particular scene... bigrazz Also, I can see the characters as real people. Matsunaga, for instance, is attractive and handsome but he has his shortcomings and bad points as well. Maybe because I'm closer to his age I feel a lot of empathy when it comes to him. Shiharu makes a great heroine, but she also has her strengths and weaknesses as a person. And Rio is amazing. Basically, this would make not only a great anime, but a great live action... if somebody could cast two-year-old twins.

This manga is so cute! I usually don't like manga that focuses on little kids but this one is just adorable. The main character is strong and funny. The twins are so cute that they make me wish i could be their babysitter and their uncle is very huggable. The storyline is cute and easy to follow and i don't hate any of the characters. This is a great manga and i can't wait to see what will happen!

Heartwarming and nice, I see several possible obstacles for the romance part of it, but it doesn't seem like it will be too gloomy since the twins will defeat any gloom within one page of it occuring. a nice read for anyone that like reading about families

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.

This manga gives me a happy fluffy feeling whenever I read it.I love the heroine so much. Shiharu is so mature and the twins are just so cute. Also,the main guy, Matsunaga, is so cool. The romance progress is kinda killing me. It's soooooooooooooo damn slow. This manga is definitely worthy to read. smile

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.
