Description
From Viz:

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with Daisy, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, Teru meets and forms a strange friendship with mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki, her school's janitor. For some reason, Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help which leads Teru to wonder: Could Daisy be a lot closer than she thinks?

As the mystery of Daisy unfolds, Teru also discovers that there may have been a lot more to the life and death of her brother than she ever dreamed . . . and that the man she thought was her friend just might have all the answers.

Best shoujo manga???   
Rating: N/A

Okay, if you count art as an important factor to determine which shoujo is the best, then maybe you won't say Basara or 7 Seeds.
If you think romance is important, then I guess you won't pick Natsume Yuujinchou or Banana Fish.
If your soul isn't mature enough or you hate angst, maybe you'll count Kare Kano out.
If you the type who shout 'the heroine cries every chapter! weak! weak! weak! i'm totally dropping this' then maybe you've dropped Immortal Rain already.
You occupied your reading-manga time with stuffs like Kaichou wa Maid Sama, Special A, Goong, Black Bird, Bride of The Water God, Faster Than a Kiss, etc. And then you come to worship this manga. How sad. This manga is superior, no doubt, but that's because the standard of shoujo manga for the readers was already too low.

Likeable characters, exciting plot, favorite pairing, and more than skin deep story, right? Then if anything, this manga is on par with Skip Beat. I like the latter more, but it's just my preference.

While I'm at it, honorable mention for great shoujo manga: NG Life, Kamisama Hajimemashita, Gold Rush 21, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Akatsuki no Yona, Golden Days, Issho ni Neyou yo, Mekakushi no Kuni, Reimei no Arcana.

good but it was dragging too much for me

I read into the 40's kind of, then I put this series on hold. I have 5 english volumes; the beginning of the series was cute but also dramatic and romantic. Once the series got around volume 10, and there was still no kissing or anything, I didn't have a big problem, but I felt like the series was being unnecessarily dragged on. Don't get me wrong, I like it and I see the appeal, and maybe I need to go back and read it over again now that it's gone on, but it was like I personally wanted more in terms of story and romance and it wouldn't get there for me. But, maybe it's already there. I might find out eventually when I decide to pick it up again

superior shoujo

Yea the romance is slow, but it's HILARIOUS. The lead female is awesome, male lead is adorable, the story is profound, and all the characters are likeable (which is an important aspect in a long running series). This has top ratings in my shoujo royalty (skip beat, ouran high school host club, wallflower, sailormoon, yasuko to kenji, ao haru ride, sa, etc). I look forward to the progress of this wonderful, inventive, and creative series.

When I first started reading this, I was excited. It was fun, Teru is HILARIOUS, and Kurosaki is my hero. I loved their fights, the plot... but lately, it's just getting hard to read. I know he's a computer hack wizard whatever, (and sadly, I don't read japanese (trying to learn but it's going painfully slow), so maybe I'm missing out on some stuff with the translations?) but it's just getting a bit tedious. I read through a chapter now and just see, "blah blah blah" because Teru's always talking about being strong and not worrying Daisy. Daisy's always talking about her letting other's protect her... *sigh*

I'll continue reading, yes, but I need more spark! A faster way forward. Get Teru kidnapped or something! Or Daisy kidnapped and Teru has to sneak around trying to find him and find out he's not really kidnapped but passed out drunk or sick somewhere. I think that'd be funny (huhuhu)

Great manga...if you don't know anything about network security   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

This is above average for what it is (a shoujo manga), but if you know even a little about programming, UNIX/Linux, or network security in general, it is REALLY REALLY STUPID. The "hacking" done by Daisy isn't often touched on, but when it is, it will make you roll your eyes. I almost put it down because of how unrealistic it is, but I kept going because I know the focus isn't really on Daisy's hacking adventures.

Just to give you a little insight into the situation:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At one point we see Daisy's bookshelf. I think to myself, awesome! I wonder if there will be any realistic books that a black hat netsec type of guy would actually have?

NOPE

He has Intro to Mac Computing and a book on Cocoa. COCOA. IS HE ONLY EXPLOITING MAC SYSTEMS? WHY WOULD AN "ELITE HACKER" HAVE A BOOK ON MAC COMPUTING AND COCOA

I mean I expected like The Art of Computer Programming, The C Programming Language (you know, the language that the UNIX kernel was WRITTEN IN), maybe some Code Complete, hell I'd even settle for The New Hacker's Dictionary and just call that shit a day. But nope. Mac Computing and Cocoa.


That's without even mentioning what Daisy's "exploits" even consist of. Where's nagios? ANY kind of server monitoring tool?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What is he even looking at, is that CSS code? Why did it only take 5 minutes to gain access to? How is he hacking into a laptop's built-in mic and HOW DID HE DO IT IN UNDER 5 MINUTES WHILE LOOKING AT CSS CODE.
COMPUTERS DON'T WORK THAT WAY.

Like I mentioned, if you're not very tech-savvy or aren't really into netsec, his exploits are just going to go right over your head and you won't know the difference. And in that case, it's an awesome shoujo manga that is head and shoulders above the rest. Nice romance, cool characters, good pacing. But if you even know an iota of information about "hacking" (oh that term, oh how I hate it) you will see Dengeki Daisy go full retard about it and you will get very very annoyed.

i started reading when there was already a good chunk of story out there, so i sort of binge read it. and it was really good. i LOVE the heroine, she's a strong female lead without seeming too annoying or being unfeminine. i dont know why, but i'm not in love with kurosaki. like, i have nothing against him but nothing about his character just ever made me excited for romantic development. i guess what i do like about their relationship is that teru (f. lead) wears the pants in the relationship. like their relationship is entirely dependent on teru, who is still a teenage girl. there's none of that unrealistic 'idgaf about society and how this is kind pedo-y, KISS ME TERU.' no, it's more "she's still a teenager, she shouldn't/won't see me as a man yet so i wont do anything" which i really love.

but post-reading binge i realize the plot isnt really sticking with me anymore. the villains are pretty bland, they need a little more than just "merrrr find daisy". i was hoping the jack o frost thing would turn into something a little bigger, but so far i'm not seeing much...

overall it's a decent read with really great art, attractive characters. highly recommended.

Why you MUST read DENGEKI DAISY   
Rating: N/A
by aoidaisy

At first I was prepared for this manga to be like all other shojo mangas. Typical shojo girl, typical bishounen guy etc tec. BUT, I cannot believe how different this manga is from all others. What everyday manga story is about a hilirious comedy heroine and a lolita (equaly as hilirious) janitor? However this manga is not all about laughs and comedy. The storyline is deep, exciting and touching. In fact, I cried during some parts of the story. Sometimes I feel that the author is having fun playing around with the reader's feelings. First I'll be crying so hard then the next I'll be slamming the table bursting out laughing.
I cannot discribe how beautiful the art is. I understand that most people disagree with the artwork but I find it truely captivating. Each scene is drawn with detail and the characters are not all shojo style with big sparkling eyes or shimmering hair. I know that many people love their characters like that, but Motomi sensei's art is very detailed and it is really beautiful mixed with the wonderful storyline/plot.
Dengeki Daisy is my top number 1 favourite manga both for its art and storyline. I have read lots of shojo mangas but no manga has really truely matched up to the level of this lovely work.
I recommend it very VERY much to those out there who are dying for a great manga. Who knows?
You might be hooked on like me. biggrin
I very easily give it a 10/10

The plot is very unique and original, and the story was neither dragging nor fast-paced. I never got bored of it, and actually, the more I read it, the more I got hooked. The pace of the plot gave enough time for the characters to develop, but it didn't drag long enough to lose my interest.
And of course, the characters are just incredible. Kurosaki is an awesome male lead. He's handsome and smart, and I like the fact that he bullies Teru around, but behind the scenes he's doing everything he can to protect her.
I really like the heroine, too. Teru isn't overly violent or air-headed and naive. Rather, she's smart, witty, funny, and I like the fact that she's quite girly, not tomboyish. She has her reckless moments too (which usually puts her in trouble) but she values her friends, knows how to stand up for herself, and besides, no one's perfect. I also love the fact that she cries and shows her emotions like a normal person, and yet still look strong.
And the side characters are really interesting. Riko-sensei, the chairman, (former bully) Rena, and even Teru's bestfriends. They're all epic.
Kurosaki and Teru's relationship is lovely and well-developed. I reeaaaallly adore their love story smile They have quite a large age gap but they go so well together that I don't even care xD

It has darker elements which may put off some shoujo fans (like my friends) but really, it's such an original, heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny, amazing, series. smile

RECOMMENDED.

the characters are all so beautifully drawn and the love story around teru and kurosaki is just so adorable! the other characters have been well written (and drawn!) as well, aiding to the plot and development of story and characters
the recent chapters have been a bit wordy and but THE most recent chapter has returned to its former glorious cuteness smile
it's very typically shojo however the main girl is smart and strong, not the typical crybaby! not the incredibly naive either!
a must read for someone looking for shojo, funny and a strong heroine
