All Miki Koishikawa wanted was an ordinary family and that's exactly what she had until her parents decided to move in with another couple (as in switching spouses!) and turned Miki's world upside down. Now she lives in a house with four parents and her totally cute stepbrother, Yuu. It's bad enough being brought into her parents' strange soap opera, but Miki will star in a soap of her own as she deals with friends having affairs, trying to survive in school and ending up torn between her long-time crush, Ginta, and her new stepbrother!

I loved it. when i first read it i kept calling it a soap opera in manga form because the relationships are always changing with some plot twist. And the parents were just insain! this is what keeps it so awesome. I know reading it I would always make fun of it but that was only because I loved it so much. That and it was funny to begin with. Cute story, good ending. Love! Love! Love it!!
Thought it was a good series but felt the ending was meh. Not surprising because the manga-ka changed her mind about the main characters not being related after all when it was clearly pointing in the story that they were. The manga-ka commented in the extras that she felt it would have been a sad ending so lame. Overall good series just a dissapointing ending.
Come on. Her father and mother and his father and mother swap partners and they all move into one house. Srsly, wth. Too weird. Too confusing. Barely any character development. I hate his personality. She's your typical shoujo idiot. Keep in mind, this my personal opinion.
One of my faaavorites!
Woo! I haven't written a review in a long time! Anyways, I'm glad I remembered to finish this series, since my library didn't have the rest of the manga volumes. >>; I say it was WORTH the read. VERYVERYVERY worth it.
For me, the couples were really easy to figure out, but I think it's just me, since I read too much romance. >> Analyzing who gets with who is my specialty literally, anyways. Miki was a bit annoying when she didn't know who she wanted and when she acts stupid, but DON'T LET THAT GET TO YOU! She makes up for it soon afterward! I liked the development of this novel. ^___^ Lots of sweet moments, but even though there was pretty much only one devastating situation, that impacted the story and I'm sure other readers, SO MUCH.
I'm glad that the mangaka went with the ending rather than her other one (she explains it in the bonus chapter at the end). For sure, if she went with the other ending, I would have had to write an ending for myself. That was a horrible alternative ending. -shudders- It's good that she realized it would have been an empty choice. ^_________^
It's a great/amazing/excellent/sweet/loving/heartbreaking manga. Sit down and read it. You'll fall in love.
The story isn't very exciting....the romance is mild taste but when they break...it got me crying....the pain of it.......I feel bad for them.........it will better if there's a little smut scene to spice it up........oh well.......... the anime is too old.....i can't bring myself to watch it....... but i will still recommand this love story though........
It sort've killed me to think that the two main protagonists were suffering so much.. I really wanted to creep up to the parents' rooms and scare them sooo bad. Maybe I'm just cooped up too much in my house, or I have good judgment. ehehehe! Anyways... a very enjoyable read, it sort've had a finality to it at the end of many chapters, which made me sort've nervous, but overall a sweet, and amusing read.

I found the story to be quite interesting and character driven. The artwork was magnificent. Wow, Miki is really cute. Though the character development could have been done better, it was quite enjoyable. I'd recommend this for romance fanatics. The last two (maybe three, don't quite recall) volumes really have you on edge.
This story was well done and i really enjoy the art, but it's more suited for someone who has not read too many shoujo mangas....you know when you can say "oh shoujo typical"....or for those who will start off with this one. Otherwise you must really have time on your hands and not anything else that you are anxious to read. I particularly love this mangaka's almost every work so you will certainly enjoy it, in fact i think this is the most shoujouish of the bunch.

It was really cute, but I found the last few volumes very circular and pointless. Overall, the idea is quite funny. My favourite characters were the parents since they were really weird and interesting. It's cute, but a lot of the stuff is cliche.
