Description
From Prisms:

A romantic comedy about Fuwa, a guy living in a small apartment in overcrowded Tokyo, who wants to have a place of his own. Because of a building accident in their new office building, Fuwa's company (5 employees) had to move into his apartment, right after he had moved to a larger place. And the new employee (Hiyama Izumi, a 15 year-old girl) had to move into Fuwa's place, as she had just come from the country. Then Fuwa's old girlfriend Tokiko, who had already gotten married, ran away from her husband and came to Fuwa's place.

Possibly the biggest disappointment in manga

I loved the first two volumes of Living Game. It was fun, wacky humor with likable characters and hinted at a greater theme being subtly discussed. And then it gradually gets worse and worse until it becomes nothing but stupid drama that reads like a rejected k-drama script. I've honestly never read another manga with such a slow and excruciating fall from grace. Rushed and unfulfilled endings? Sure, there's a million of those. But Living Game is unique in how painfully slow it commits suicide.

I'll recommend this as a light read, just keep an open mind, don't look too much for H(there is no raping or any anything of this sort, don't listen to small minded people) and read this nice manga light headed

She so pure and naive that even they lived together more than year they dont do anything. But then turns out that her father kick her out of town coz she slept with her classmate. And than drama, cliche, drama, cliche. As always when author try to milk some money and make more volumes than story really need.

Both have no idea what they are talking about, they don't have sex when she's 15.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it doesn't happen until she's 17 just about to turn 18


God forbid they actually read a manga instead of writing it off because of their prudish values that don't even apply to this.

I agree with TaoPaiPai in every aspect. An age gap of ten years and more seems very popular in manga. I can tolerate a 30 years old woman marrying a 40 years old man, but definitely not a 15 years old maiden falling for a 25 years old man at first sight. That comes very close to pedophilia. It saddens me to say this but the more manga I check the more I am becoming covinced that it consists to 80% of perversion. Why can't there be more works like Emma?

i cant take more than 2 volumes of this
15yo girls gets a OL job in a big city...weird...minor...
15yo girls wants to have sex with the first man she encounters in this new town from their first meeting
25yo man wants to have sex with 15yo girl [on the second day] she have a mature body...is his excuse
25yo mans old girlsfriend try to make them have sex[knowing she is only 15]
and everyone is chearing them on

this feels so wrong to me
i know its a comedy but that part is not the funny part...that is the only developed thing in the manga...their relationship
everything about it is disgusting...all he thinks about is her naked body...i would have done that too...but i would not act on any of my impulses...he even tries to rape her early on in volume2 when their is an earthquake
are japanese ppl just wild beasts that fuck anything they can?
this is a horrible story

woohoo...i finished this one...and i loved it...Izumi was a little annoying in some places and the fact that just about every woman began to get feelings for Fuwa was a tad bit annoying too....but all around a good read...it was funny and pretty sweet too...now the one real issue i had with it was the moving every five seconds...honestly i don't think that was too realistic...lastly, the main theme of this one is finding your own place, be it your own home or a love hotel...but it was a really good manga...

I thought this manga was incredibly good. The romantic development was pretty good and I really loved the Izumi and Fuwa relationship. I enjoyed their affection and the theme that Love is not is not hindered by AGE! It also didn't drag on like some other romances and was always filled with some entertaining rising action.

I had high hopes and was looking forward to the manga after reading the summary here, but once I began reading it, I ended up hating a lot of the characters and in the end, didn't like it much. I was expecting it'd be like Aishiteruze Baby, but no, it wasn't. Not even a "same-age" futari relationship. I'm afraid this manga was just too poor... And for the record, I oppose pedophelic-like relationships.

Not great, not bad, but does go downhill

This manga started out good, with likeable characters and plot devises, but as it move past the first couple volumes it steadily goes downhill. While it started out believable, it becomes frustrating as characters seem to appear out of the blue (and naturally fall in love Fuwa), and naturally Izumi gets involved by shear chance in some fantastic fluke, drama ensues. Its kind of ironic that the world in this manga can make it seem like there are all of 50 people living in Tokyo (minus people on the subway), given that the end of the series seems to portray a message regarding the almost infinite opportunities present in this wide world.
