Definitely yuri for me, too

While it's true that right now Maya and Michiru are in a relatively comfortable place with their relationship as flat-mates, it seems to me that as time passes some sort of turning-point will be reached, forcing a decision either to separate or stay together. Michiru has to grow up and stop depending on Maya, which will probably necessitate her leaving, but on the other hand they have grown to become a family with Yuu-chan and Niko and it would be an awful waste to destroy that. And although Maya *is* getting to notice Kuwabara, I really cannot imagine them getting together... Her feelings seem more friendly and pitying rather than romantic.

That aside, it's a great series depicting an alternative family - one of the very few out there as far as I know - which serves as a sort of growing-up story (for adults) as well. Highly recommended!

I like to consider it shoujoai/yuri . . .

I like the story a ton, and I personally enjoy the love between Maya and Michiru.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I like how much space Maya has in heart to forgive Michiru when she becomes overreactionary. There easily could have been alternate endings and you might not like Michiru very much. However, I think that Michiru's jealousy shows she has realized her nostalgic feelings for Maya, while Maya wants to find a way to keep everyone together, overcoming her self-doubt.

The characters evolve through one another's emotions, and the art is too lovable - Maya and Michiru pretty obviously still like one another making for a nice shoujoai feel.
I still can't get over the bejeweled eyes - too cute!

[BTW, this review is written as of Chapter 5, so it has yet to take into account any newer plot developments]

Really cute but...

I agree with the other reviewer to some extent. It seems Michiru has lingering feelings but Maya is trying to move on because Michiru hurt her too much. I have nothing against yuri/shoujo ai, it's just the series is doing so well without it. It should be about Maya and Michiru moving past their relationship and finding themselves rather than them re-realizing their feelings for each other. Michiru has a lot to learn about being a mother (I didn't even realize Yuu-chan was her kid at first) and is ridiculously childish, as seen by the way she up and leaves Maya twice by note. To rekindle the romance between Michiru and Maya would just ruin the current flow and enjoyment. (Especially since Maya is getting to know Kuwabara)!

Other than that, I really like this series. It's cute, pretty light, and the characters (other than Michiru) are instantly likable.

This definitely seems like a yuri to me

Im sorry but i just cant see this as anything but a yuri romance despite the endless talking about friendship, because its pretty clear that michiru and maya still have feelings for each other. Anybody else agree?
