Average manga, can be annoying. The characters are pretty bland and show no development. The main character (Miyako) is a self-defined Cinderella of the family who cooks and cleans and spends the rest of her time feeling sorry for herself, the "normal"( in her opinion normal=bleak) one among the mega talented super popular hotties i.e. her siblings. It is difficult to sympathise with her, as she never tries to improve herself in any way, content with being a voluntary house maid. She can't even get angry properly and confront her siblings when she feels they are being unjust.and what's up with the parents? they transferred all the responsibility for the house to the shoulders of 13-14 year old girl and never even talk to her about that. Overall, a rather cheesy average read with flat characters.

its an ok read but one of those one chapter end mangas out of the mangas lucky enough to be able to get an ending. The main characters (all 5 siblings) are very extreme, normally as you read you should learn some side info about them that makes them more "real" but unfortunately all of them stay two dimensional, no depth to any of them; in fact the most developed of the characters is not even one of the main characters at all but rather the boy (seiji) who likes to hang around them at the end of the manga. This makes it really hard to sympathize with them, frankly i'm not sure i will even remember the story a week from now. i liked the art and read the manga for it so i'm not overly disappointed but it would have been a very good story with more depth and longer running. All in all if you have time you may give this a go but don't have too much expectations from it before starting that way i believe you'll get more enjoyment out of it.

I did not care for the way the main character (Miyako) was portrayed, nor did I care for the ending. This manga felt a little rushed. It definitely could have gone on for a few more volumes with the main character showing some kind of growth. I did not like the fact the maganka kept going on about how the siblings were extraordinary people. Meanwhile, Miyako, who was normal (and we hear about this every time) did not try to better herself at all.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
She seemed content to stay as a cook and a house cleaner.
I also did not like the ending between the Miyako and Seiji, her love interest.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
There was no recognition. There was no “I see the light” moment. It simply felt that they became a couple because he was grateful to her. If this were the case, I would rather see her break it off with Seiji, better herself and find someone else who would have fallen in love with her from the beginning.

Overall, this was an okay read but it left me unsatisfied. I would only recommend this if there is nothing else to read.
