oh, wow

Review after the first 13 chapters:

Wow, where can I begin? A group of five children decides to raise an alien baby that fell from the sky and has a superpower. The story could be really sweet if it took the usual shoujo route. But what I didn't expect, especially considering the mangaka's other works, was such a thrilling story that makes my heart rate go up.

In the beginning we're presented to a group of five seemingly average children who take up baby Bara and raise her together, taking turns in keeping her in their house. This is where the good part starts: not only do we get to meet each child of the group individually and, through their interactions with baby Bara, discover that, despite their age, they're not so simple and their seemingly tight-knit group actually has a more complex structure than what you would expect from five-year olds, but each of them is a multidimentional, superbly-written character in their own right. We have Kojiro, a weak and easily bullied boy who goes through good character development while shouldering the responsibility of being a good role model for an innocent and gullible child, the cute and straightforward Arika who has a history with Saya, the tall and cool girl with a vulnerable side, Yukinari, a bright child who is sort of the center of the group, but hides a sad past, and Inori, who despite being cold cares a lot for Yukinari, who makes him feel he's not alone.
Then, of course, we have Barako, the child that fell from a meteor and who shows an incredible growth rate and an unusual power. Barako, who is like a blank sheet of paper in her innocence and naivete, and whose purity is morphing to amorality.

Honestly, I was expecting the manga to be like Gakuen Babysitters. I did not expect it to have such a dark undercurrent, and I certainly didn't expect it to keep me on the edge of my seat like it did.

Wasn't that interested in the cover of the manga, but I promise that it is more interesting than it originally seems. Esp. the relationships between all the kids, that are especially subversive between the same-sex friends.

At first, when I had saw the cover page of the manga, it made me quite wary of what I was going to be reading. (I'm not that good with aliens and stuffs.) But once I started reading, the child was so cute! They way the child interacts with the other children, how they teach and nurture is really portrayed in the manga. However, that cuteness changed halfway through the manga, where someone was actually hurt by the child.
I've only read up till the english translations, but I'm sure there's more to the baby than it seems. Although it is not fully translated, it has already shown potential, and the way the mangaka has portrayed a child's innocence turning into something darker, really hits me in the heart. How a simple childish 'want to be with you forever' might be changed into something a person might regret forever.
Moreover, the first few pages are already premonitions of how something bad is going go happen to the group of children, to have them resort to the final resort.
If you are a shoujo-lover, who loves romance and all, this isn't the shoujo manga for you. However, if you want a simple change to cute babies and plot with a darker and deeper meaning, you should absolutely try this!
(I have to say, the mangaka has successfully given me the creeps while I read the manga.)
