This would be a nice story,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
if there was no standing out romance line between Kippei and that proud idealized beauty (Kippei's classmate). With an ugly scary stalker-girl, it all looks like a kitsch and soup opera. I just can't bear it.
Also, I have two little nieces (near Yuzuyu's age), and they don't say so profound things like Yuzuyu sometimes says. I remember myself in that age - I was too shy to say smth like that, and I simply couldn't find words. So her speech looks rather unbelievable to me.
Beside these things, this manga is cute)
yes cute, but this is about short grownups not children
First: The art is mediocre at best. The mangaka use large eyes to make children and bigger girls cute, some of them so big that they look somewhat like an alien.
Story: The mangaka doesn't know how children talk, think or what is right to do whit them and what is not. So in the end she let them talk and behave like short grownups and not like 5 years old children. Yes, Yuzuyu is cute. But not a 5 years old child which has lose her mother AND father (the mangaka seems to has forgotten about this and so Yuzuyu has forgotten about her father completely too). In the end this manga is only a romance and about difficulties for the main male protagonist to get himself a real girlfriend while taking care of his cute 5-years-old cousin. IMHO the best character in this manga is the older sister of Kippei. Which is very strong, to the point of being over dominant, but who have her heart in the right place. I really do enjoy this character.
If you like to read something heartwarming and moving about children and grownups interaction read "Usagi Drop" (very good) or "My Girl" from SAHARA Mizu. Or if you like a cute and humoristic story than try "Yotsubato!" (beautiful). This Manga is definitely not on the same level like the three mangas which I suggested. You can read this manga but you would ask yourself many times why was the mangaka thinking children would say this or that. Or why it's normal for the ppl in this manga that 5-year-olds can walk alone trough the city to visit somebody. Or many more things like that. The romance part is OK I guess but nothing extraordinary.

Very heart warming and emotional
The ending is quite sweet, but if the author added a few pages (about what's going on for each character or add flashbacks of current situation before the final scene), it would have been more complete.

For Aishiteruze Baby, I would prefer that it ends the same way as Usagi Drop". But of course, the main male character already has a girlfriend, if he would end up with the girl he raised, I would feel sorry for his high-school girlfriend. So I think it has a sweet ending, just a little incomplete (at least tell us what's going on with Yuzuyu and her current life, and what's going on with Kippei and his girlfriend. It left me hanging in an emotional state that Kippei and Yuzuyu never got to meet each other after the depart. lol

Not really enjoying it..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but this was quite addictive. Hard for me to stop halfway. I don't know why but the ending...It feels like there's something missing. There's no extra chapters about how Yuzu is doing when she's with her mom. Not so recommended.
the only complaint i have is that i felt it needed another chapter, the ending was too abrupt and it doesn't show enough about the solution to the many important relationships at the end
Original and gives your heart a good feeling.
A good and original story. Very funny, cute and sentimental. It gives you a good feeling inside your heart. I love the development of the main charakter Kippei. And of course the adoroble Yuzuyu.
I cried. I simpy cried. And I'm a strong-hearted person. It was really really touching. It reminded me of MY older brother. It was a bit rushed at the end though. I was really moved when Keppei told Yuzuyu to go despite he loved her. I kept delaying to read this, but now that I finally read it, it was worth it. I normally don't like sad endings, but this was an exception along with Hana To Akuma. Totally worth your time
it was a good read. i thought it was corny manga that's why i'm always skipping this but the topics was actually quite mature. a light drama. the ending was not bad but it's like the story was cut short, just like emma. it definitely would be better if it had a side story or sequel of what happened after they part-ways.
Don't read it if...
If you hate disappointing endings. It's not that big of a waste of time since it's only 33 chapters, but seriously... in the end I was like "And the whole point of this is?"
Okay if you're a girl then maybe you'll be fine with it, but I'm a guy so lame endings like these don't work. I kind of expected it though, but I still hoped until the last chapter.
Maybe I'm exaggerating since I feel ripped off. The beginning was interesting, and there were certainly some highlights, but not something to read if you have a major project due tommorrow.

I loved this story. It is sooo cute and adorable, and the reader easily gets attached to the characters. The flaw I find in this story is the end. While its a cute end, I feel as though just a letter and no other contact isn't quite right. Their bond was strong and you think (especially because they have a close bond and are cusions) they would see each other. I also wish they would have at least talked a bit about how Kippi and Kokoro ended up, even if just a picture. Other than that this was really cute and a must read.
