Wonderful josei series   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This is a great manga for those who like josei series, slice-of-life manga, traditional Japanese culture, unique and strong female leads, family stories, and slow romances. The three siblings, the mother, the men, their relatives... everyone has a truly unique personality and an interesting story in their past. The art is the sort of loosely-defined, flowy 90's art and the standard of beauty may not be the same as the current manga standard, but the characters are all charming in their own way.

I love the sense of Kyoto culture you get at the very beginning. You also get a sense of familial ties and duties in Japan, of the insidious way scandal creeps into the home (although it's not so dramatic as I make it sound), and of the strange love/rivalry relationship between siblings. This story has a lot of startling realism mixed in, and the surprises and plot twists integrate well into the story flow. Even the dramatic events keep the same slow-paced feeling.

The ending is not so important as the process to get there. Each week I come away wanting more, yet satisfied with the latest chapter. It's a series definitely worth waiting for, and the scanlator has been very consistent for the last half-year in releasing it. Highly recommended.

Considering how this series started in 1995 and then thinking about other works that came out from that period, it's definitely easy to forgive in the drawings dept. Other than that, this is a pretty good manga series. It took awhile for me to warm up to reading this because I thought it was going to be boring and the fact that it was 11 volumes. I didn't want to invest my time reading only a few chapters/volumes and be left hanging in the middle because it wasn't scanlated all the way. But thank goodness that the scanlators are very consistent in their releases, which was why I attempted to read it in the first place I immediately got hooked after reading the first volume. The storyline is pretty good. It's definitely a breath of fresh air reading this. I like how each sister gets their own story and that the entire story is not on romance alone, but also deals with the family itself and the life revolving their shop. (hmm, I thought this was a slice-of-life genre, but I guess they took that down.) It's somewhat obvious what's going to happen in the end, but I think the way the mangaka delicately (or strategically) mapped out the storyline, makes this a worthwhile journey to take up.

Since there is such a narrow selection of translated josei manga, finding one this good is quite the catch. Seriously, it's been a a while since not one of the characters annoyed me. Here, all of them are very different, not stereotypical at all AND they don't cease to strike me as charming as I'm looking forward to reading a new chapter every week. You actually can't predict what's going to happen next, which is very rare. Overall, it's a great read. Definitely recommended.

Well, I have to say it's a good manga for those interested in the japanese culture, since there are some stuff explained about the shop and the stuff they sell there (plus the translator notes on the sweets is really nice), about Kyoto and some other references. Other than that, the plot is character driven, focused on the three sisters, their interaction and their life in general. As a josei manga, I say it's among my favorites.
